Summer at the Little French Guesthouse by Helen Pollard

What They Say....Summer sun, chilled, white wine, and a gorgeous fiancé. Nothing could upset pure bliss ... Right?

Emmy Jamieson loves her new life in the gentle hills and sunflowers of the lush French countryside, managing La Cour des Roses, a beautiful, white stone guesthouse. With marriage to caramel-eyed Alain just round the corner, things couldn’t be more perfect.

The odd glass (gallon) of wine dulls the sound of Emmy’s mum in full motherzilla-of-the-bride mode, and the faint tinkling of alarm bells coming from Alain’s ex are definitely nothing to worry about. Guesthouse owner Rupert and a whole host of old and new friends are there to make sure nothing gets in the way of Emmy’s happiness.

But as Emmy gets close to the big day, a secret from the past throws everything decidedly off track. Will her idyllic French wedding go ahead as planned, or will Emmy run back home to England with a broken heart?

What I Say.....This is the third book in the La Cour Des Roses series and I was so happy to receive a copy to review.  I was hooked from the first book and the third one was just as good.

Emmy is finally ready to marry Alain, but it wouldn't be a summer in the French countryside without some bumps rising in the road to happily ever after.

SPOILER ALERT - BUT NOT TOO MUCH OF A SPOILER! A house fire, a troubled marriage, an unexpected pregnancy, and pushy parents are just some of the things brewing before the wedding day.  Emmy is also dealing with a contentious mother, who doesn't seem to think texting her friends for every wedding detail is any big deal.  Ugh.  I'd lose my mind, but I also don't have a handsome French boyfriend who thinks everything I do is perfect - I'd like one though.

I don't think there's much danger of Emmy running back to England with a broken heart, but her chateau wedding is definitely in danger.

All I can say is keep the series going - I love it!
