Far more of a challenge though is their father - an impossibly good looking French count with whom she is rapidly falling in love .

Waiting for her inside is three silent, rather hostile children who are to be her charges for the next month. She did take me way out of my writing comfort zone, setting a book in France when I couldn’t go there, for a start, but I loved living in her world.

I have read all of Katie Fforde’s novels over the last twenty years or so, and A Wedding in Provence has a lot of the familiar elements that make her books so memorable. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Cookery school-trained, with ‘colloquial and rustic’ French, Alexandra is to take charge of le Comte’s – Antoine’s – three children in a chateau in Provence for a month.

The children's father - a count and very handsome often works away and Alexandra is left to cope with this alone. Good to read when in need of relaxation and a chance to escape to France in the 60s for fun and romance. I would recommend this to any fans of clean romance, especially if you like journeying to other times and places!

Although there were many aspects of this story I enjoyed, and it was certainly romantic, I felt it was perhaps suited to younger readers than myself. Surprisingly the position turns out not to be in Paris but in Provence, but Alexandra accepts the challenge, despite her only experience being with her own Nannies. It also left me feeling a little uncomfortable when Alexandra was assessing men for their suitability as suiters and that she should prefer this one instead of that one because her's closer in age, Perhaps it was something that women did in the sixties? To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

A series of events means she end up as a short term Governess to 3 children whose mother has left, and whose father has to work away, so Alexandre at age 20 finds herself in a French chateau in Province in charge of 3 children - the oldest of whom is 15 - not too much younger than herself.She bumps into Donna outside the Sacré Coeur, and there begins a chain of events that leads her to gaining employment from the handsome Le Comte de Belleville. 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. I’d absolutely recommend this book to anyone and everyone, whether you’re a romance lover or not, read Katie’s books.
