Summary

Escape to hills high above the French Riviera with international best-selling author Jennifer Bohnet.

After tragically losing her husband, Nicola Jacques and her teenage son, Oliver, relocate to his father’s family's Olive Farm in the hills above the French Riviera. Due to a family feud, Oliver has never known his fathers’ side of the family, and Grandpapa Henri is intent that Oliver will take over the reins of the ancestral farm and his rightful inheritance. Determined to keep her independence from a rather controlling grandpapa, Nicola buys a run-down cottage on the edge of the family's Olive Farm and sets to work renovating their new home and providing an income by cultivating the small holding that came with the cottage.

As the summer months roll by, Nicola and Oliver begin to settle happily into their new way of life with the help of aunts Josephine and Odette, Henri’s twin sisters and local property developer Gilles Bongars. But the arrival of some unexpected news, and guests at the farm, force Nicole and Aunt Josephine to assess what and where their futures lie. 

This book was previously published as The French Legacy.

Beware dodgy French accents

Not a bad story but a bit contrived to make neat tying up of odds & ends. Narration was wrecked by appalling faux French accents & unrealistic voices.
