Late summer, 1963
Fresh from London and a recent cookery course, Alexandra has always loved a challenge.
Which is why she now finds herself standing outside an imposing chateau in Provence.
Waiting for her inside is three silent, rather hostile children who are to be her charges for the next month.
They will soon be more friendly, she tells herself. All they need is some fun, good food and an English education.
Far more of a challenge though is their father – an impossibly good looking French count with whom she is rapidly falling in love . . .
I have not read many books by Katie but I thoroughly enjoyed this one, I felt as though it was an easy and fun read that had lots packed into it. The main character is called Alexandra who after finishing a cookery course heads to France where she finds a job being a nanny to three children, at first they are hostile to her but she soon gets them to open up to her and it was lovely to see that blossom. I liked how the book was written it had a chatty feel to it which I liked, I liked Alexandra, I felt as though she was a strong women that people could look up to. When the father returns to his children we then see romance sizzle between him and Alexandra and I was really hoping she would get her happy ever after as she is such a great nanny and person. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more by Katie in the future.
I received an ARC for an honest review.
