Summary

CC is trapped by a job she no longer loves in an unfriendly city. So when her new boyfriend decides it's time to sell up and move to the South of France, she decides in seconds to change her life. After all, who wouldn't pick an azure sea, aperitifs, and sunshine over a dreary commute and a rainy climate?

She hadn't expected a tumbledown farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. Or a motley assortment of surly builders, eccentric farmers, and a resentful, terrifying neighbour - who happens to be her boyfriend's aunt. Suddenly, CC's dream of a place in the sun is looking more like a nightmare. Does she have the courage to stick it out and make a home of her French house?

The French House

My first Nick Alexander read - I was hooked from the beginning to the end. I shall definitely be listening to more from this clever author.

Disliked the Characters

I personally disliked this book. I had a hard time understanding why the main character even loved her guy, it bothered me. I wish there had been more backstory showing how the ‘love’ occurs, because the entire book he is a jerk and I just didn’t understand WHY she was sticking around. And the whole drowning kittens! That was a bit much. I honestly kept reading in the hopes it would get better but it never did.
