About this deal

The relationship between Antoine and Alexandra was almost non existent, the need to over explain situations was annoying and there were quite a few eye rolling moments for me. However, we do get to enjoy the development of the relationship between the young nanny and her charges, as they go from wary to not wanting her to ever go. I had to give it three stars as I didn't feel the plot was entirely original, a Chateau instead of a castle, a gay friend and fellow employee, dressing the house and having a traditional Christmas and skating on the lake and even relations concerned that they should inherit.

But with Antoine to gaze at, with his gorgeous eyes and heart warming smile, and her can-do just get on with it attitude, we don’t really have anything to worry about as she’s sure to come out triumphant. However, Alexandra is a capable and resourceful young woman and, despite disapproval from almost everyone she meets, gradually gains the children’s trust. Alexandra is a sweet, kind girl, who means well and is blessed with seeing the positive in most things, which is an attribute you don’t see much of these days. This book has a great cast of characters, from the old fashioned, rude and somewhat cruel ex-mother in law, to the ex-wife herself, poor Alexandra is really thrown into the thick of it with her new job in Provence.Recommended as a perfect read for when one is in the mood for a readable romance, with the inevitable happy ending.

She finds herself looking after a teenage girl, a not much younger brother and adopted much younger sister. I loved seeing her grow and care for the children and try so hard not to fall for her older sexy boss. Following on from A Wedding in the Country where three young women, Lizzie, Alexandra and Meg, meet on a cookery course and become firm friends, A Wedding in Provence is Alexandra’s story.Set in Provence in the middle of the 60’s you are just transported straight into the chateaux with Alexandra, having the confidence to take on the job of nanny to three kids just days after arriving in Paris at just 20 is inspiring and tells you a bit about the kind of character she is. I loved seeing Alexandra thrust into life as a nannie for children that, very obviously, resent her and do not want her there. Telling the story of Alexandra who takes on a nannying job as a change of career, in a French chateau. Overall I just really loved this book, there were a few occasions where I gasped out loud as I found myself just getting absolutely lost in the pages.
