An Escape to Provence

What to expect

Where there’s a will, can love find a way?

When cynical divorce lawyer Daisy Jackson unexpectedly inherits a ramshackle farmhouse in Provence, she sets off for the French countryside to oversee renovations herself.

But Gabriel Laforet has other ideas. A local builder with ties to the property, Gabriel is determined to see Daisy off and preserve the characterful, charming farmhouse – which, but for a missing will, he knows is rightfully his.

When the two meet, it’s clear they couldn’t be more different: Gabriel has lived in the small country village all his life; Daisy is a city girl whose career means everything. He is laid-back and messy; she is used to being in control. As they begin to work together, sparks fly. Yet they’re inexplicably drawn to each other and, in the heat of the Provence sun, secrets begin to spill. Perhaps Daisy can trust him with her carefully guarded heart after all?

But Gabriel is still searching for the missing will that proves the farmhouse belongs to him – and in doing so, risks upturning everything he and Daisy have started to build together . . .

Critics Review

  • Praise for An Escape to Provence

  • This book is ABSOLUTELY my cup of tea! I loved Daisy, who escaped not just to Provence but from her past demons. The setting was so beautifully realised that I felt as if I was in Provence with her.

    Sue Moorcroft
  • An absolute delight, full of Provencal sunshine and the most heart-warming, tingling romance

    Julie Caplin
  • I couldn’t have loved it more! The setting was so wonderfully evocative – I certainly wish I could escape there now! The book was an utter joy and it should be on everyone’s summer reading list!

    Kate Field
  • A joyful summery escape. The setting is beautiful – making me want to head off there with a glass of wine and a cookery lesson with the gorgeous Gabriel. The details of the Provence location, as well as the relationship, are sensual and vivid. And I love how the characters, the feisty Daisy and sensitively hunky Gabriel, gradually peeled off their layers as we get to know them through the story
