It’s not quite the same when it comes to Felicite, who at 15 clearly doesn’t feel like she needs a nanny to look after her, although the change in her as the book plays out is clear. I can’t believe that this is the first book by Katie Fforde that I’ve read as it definitely won’t be the last! A Wedding in Provence is published by Century Books and available now in hardback, ebook and audiobook formats.

It’s 1963 and free-spirited heiress Alexandra has 24 hours in Paris before jumping on a train bound for finishing school in Switzerland. Many thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for gifting me this arc in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. Having decided, at Donna’s insistence, to spend a little longer than the planned 24 hours in Paris, Donna tells her about a job in Paris an acquaintance is looking to fill. I can’t fault anything in this book, I can only fault Katie herself… for not writing more than one book a year!It is an enjoyable story and the kittens almost make it worth reading by themselves but to me, it all seemed a bit predictable with too many stereotypes. She finds herself in a chateau, looking after three children, unaided, two of which aren't keen to have her there, with a grandmerè who doesn't feel she is qualified, an estranged mother of said children, who wants to whisk the children away, and a friendly dog. How will she learn to cope with the three children of the French count who is the father to the three, as she finds herself falling for him?

Think Sound of Music, Cold Comfort Farm and the joie de vivre of early Jilly Cooper, but all uniquely and irresistibly Katie Fforde. Recently her old hobbies of ironing and housework have given way to singing, Flamenco dancing and husky racing.However, we do get to enjoy the development of the relationship between the young nanny and her charges, as they go from wary to not wanting her to ever go. As a big fan of The Sound of Music, I enjoyed following the relationship and comparing it to Maria and Captain von Trapp’s. The food descriptions had my mouth watering when reading about the lovely French pastries and delicious meals. Her story was accompanied by a varied cast of interesting side characters, including endearing children and a dashing loved interest.

She believes falling in love is the best thing in the world, and she wants all her characters to experience it, and her readers to share their stories. I want to thank netgalley, Random House UK, Cornerstone publishers and Katie Fforde for allowing me to read this book and give my personal thoughts. This was your typical Hannah/Laura buddy read where the planned reading schedule goes to pot on the first night *snorts*. When the family members decide she should join them to attend a Swiss finishing school, she decides to spend a few days in Paris first, visiting the city.

It was as if the Chateau and its inhabitants were just waiting for Alexandra’s arrival (and those who follow) to breathe new life back into it. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Now she has to care for children who view her ‘with a mixture of hostility, resentment and defiance’. But with Antoine to gaze at, with his gorgeous eyes and heart warming smile, and her can-do just get on with it attitude, we don’t really have anything to worry about as she’s sure to come out triumphant. A Wedding in Provence follows Alexandra, a young woman who is desperately trying to avoid the life expected of her by her relations.
