The Forgotten Summer By Carol Drinkwater

the forgotten summer

This title will be released on February 11, 2016.

Secrets ripen and fester over a long sweltering summer in France . . .

The annual grape harvest at the Cambon family’s magnificent vineyard is always a cause for celebration. But not this year. When an accident destroys the crop, leaving the estate facing ruin, Clarisse Cambon knows exactly who to blame – her daughter-in-law Jane.

It’s just the latest incident in a decades-long feud whose origin both women have concealed from Luc, who struggles to keep his wife and mother on speaking terms. But is Luc the saint he appears to be? When tragedy strikes, Jane is thrown into doubt. What secrets has her husband been keeping?

Forced to take charge of the ailing vineyard, Jane uncovers further proof that Luc may not be the man she fell in love with twenty years ago. And, worse still, she knows that her old enemy Clarisse is the only one who knows the truth . .

My Thoughts:

I want to say thank you to lovereading for sending me an advanced copy of this book. I loved it, even though it is cold at the moment reading this book made me look forward to the summer. What I found interesting was reading about the process of making wine and olives too, it made me want to be right there in the thick of it and I could almost imagine I was. Carol has clearly researched into vineyards very well. I think this is a book to enjoy at any time of the year. But I think it is best read in the evening with a nice big glass of wine.
