Falling for a French Dream: Escape to the French countryside for the perfect uplifting read Kindle Edition
Escape to hills high above the French Riviera with international bestseller Jennifer Bohnet.
After tragically losing her husband, Nicola Jacques and her teenage son Oliver relocate to his father’s family's olive farm in the hills above the French Riviera.
Due to a family feud, Oliver has never known his father's side of the family but Grandpapa Henri is intent that Oliver will take over the reins of the ancestral farm and his rightful inheritance.
Determined to keep her independence from a rather controlling Grandpapa, Nicola buys a run-down cottage on the edge of the family's Olive Farm and sets to work renovating their new home and providing an income by cultivating the small holding that came with the Cottage.
As the summer months roll by, Nicola and Oliver begin to settle happily into their new way of life with the help of Aunts Josephine and Odette, Henri’s twin sisters and local property developer Gilles Bongars.
But the arrival of some unexpected news and guests at the farm, force Nicole and Aunt Josephine to assess what and where their futures lie.
This book was previously published as The French Legacy.

Nicola was married to Marc, a French charity worker, they had a son, Oliver but family life wasn't enough for Marc. He needed to be helping people in need and decided to work for an Overseas crisis charity. He still came home to see his family but eventually encouraged Nicola to divorce him so she could get on with her life. For Nicola looking after Oliver was her life. An earthquake in Italy resulted in Marc's death, his body was taken to his father 's farm near Nice, denying Nicola and Oliver a final closure. A few months later Henri, Marc's father asks Nicola to come to France as there are things they need to discuss. Well we have to get Nicola and Oliver to France so story can begin.
A lot of the action takes place off stage and is reported but it's an easy read and absorbing enough. And it brought back holiday memories of Nice in a time of travel uncertainty.
