Summary

Every end has a new beginning....

All new from best-selling author Jennifer Bohnet.

When Pixie Sampson's husband tragically dies, she inherits the beautiful Château Quiltu in Brittany, Northern France. 

But unbeknown to her, she also inherits a mysterious lodger, Justine Martin and her four-year-old son, Ferdie. 

Heartbroken and with her adventurous mum, Gwen, in tow, they travel to France to put the château on the market but are soon drawn into a quest to seek the château's secrets. 

Who is Justine? Why is she living at the château? How did she know her husband? 

Over the summer months, the château fills with family and laughter and secrets are discovered and old wounds begin to heal.

Enjoyable escapism

I do not agree with the other review. Although the story has a similarity to others I think it is sufficiently different to still be throughly enjoyable in its own right. I also very much enjoyed the performance and production quality. The characters are beautifully crafted by Jennifer Bohnet and I thoroughly recommend any of her books.

Just ok for me

This started out really strong but got progressively boring. I’d say 2/3 were entertaining but the remainder was just uninteresting.
