It’s Summersdale Free Sample Friday. For this week only you’ll be able to read and download the first two chapters of the brilliant Tout Sweet by Karen Wheeler.
In her mid-thirties, fashion editor Karen has it all: a handsome boyfriend, a fab flat in west London and an array of gorgeous shoes. But when Eric leaves, she hangs up her Manolos and waves goodbye to her glamorous city lifestyle to go it alone in a run-down house in rural Poitou-Charentes, central western France.
Acquiring a host of new friends and unsuitable suitors, she learns that true happiness can be found in the simplest of things – a bike ride through the countryside on a summer evening, or a kir or three in a neighbour’s courtyard.
Perfect summer reading for anyone who dreams of chucking away their BlackBerry in favour of real blackberrying and downshifting to France.
“the author not only has something to say – she is able to include all manner of themes from renovation to travel and romance to fashion… very entertaining” French Magazine
