When Vicki is jilted at the altar and left with all her fiancé’s debt, she puts a plan in place. She pays off his debt and then decides to take a year out to paint in France. AND she is off men for sure.
But fate has other ideas. Her landlord, Christophe is gorgeous although quite moody, and then Daniel appears in her life too. But can either of them really be trusted? Will she be able to resist? Or will her ‘off men’ turn into something else?
This is a brilliant, light hearted and fun romantic comedy. I found myself laughing from the first chapter and didn’t stop. Vicki is a feisty woman who just picks herself up and gets on with it – I absolutely loved her, especially her drunken behaviour! Christophe and Daniel – well I’ll let you decide for yourselves!
The setting is fantastic, and I absolutely loved travelling to France with Vicki. The scenery is wonderful, the food Vicki creates sounds lovely and will make your mouth water, and the wine will definitely make you want a glass!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and the way it’s written. Rosie writes in a fun, enjoyable and easy to read way that will keep you turning the pages for more.
So….if you’re looking for your next light hearted, fun story to read in your garden (or by the pool!) then this could be for you! Recommended by me!
about the author
Rosie Dean has been writing stories and plays since she was big enough to type. After studying ceramic design and gaining a ‘degree in crockery’ as the man in her life calls it, she became an Art & Pottery teacher. Seven years later, she moved into corporate world, writing training courses and marketing copy until the lure of being a full-time writer became irresistible.
Her passion is to write entertaining love stories that can make a reader chuckle, laugh out loud or, occasionally, feel a lump in the throat. Most of all, she loves developing the characters who inhabit her stories – eccentricities and screwball scenarios pop up in all of her work. Some of these characters have four legs – because animals offer an interesting counterpoint to human dramas.
Vicki’s story is close to Rosie’s heart. Once an art teacher herself, and going through a difficult time, she would dream of escaping it all to paint. From these dreams, she wrote Vicki’s Work of Heart
Rosie lives on the Isle of Wight, and can see the sea from her writing den.
