Struggling writer Faye Carter just can’t believe her luck. She’s off to Provence to write the autobiography of a famous film star and she’ll be staying in the stunning chateau!
So when she meets charming (and completely gorgeous) lavender farmer, Gavin, she knows that she’s made the right choice – even if glamourous, elderly Anabelle seems to be hiding something…
But when the sun is shining, the food is delicious and the air smells of honey, anything seems possible. Will the magic of Provence help Faye finally find a happy-ever-after of her own?
What I Thought:
I was thrilled to recently take part in a blog tour to celebrate the release of To Provence, With Love and host an interview with the author. This is the third T. A. (Trevor) Williams book that I’ve read, and I’ve really enjoyed all of them.
Trevor has a deft touch with his novels, giving them foreign, yet familiar, settings and introducing a likeable cast of characters, for whom it is easy to wish good things.
In this novel in particular, you get a real sense that Trevor knows Provence well, and the writing brilliantly evokes the sights, sounds and smells of rural France.
Although the novel makes no apology for being a romance novel, there is a subtle hint of mystery in Faye’s situation, which is hinted at throughout the book before finally being revealed in the last few pages. This and a few other clever little twists enhance the romantic storyline and make the book a delightful summer read.
To Provence, With Love is out now, published by HQ Digital.
