Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

A Year at the French Farmhouse by Gillian Harvey

Escape to France with this warm, witty romantic read.

My Review:

To escape to France to live they'd planned for years,
But kept putting off, delayed by other fears.
Now they've a plan, next year it'll be all go
Their dreams coming true - well, they hope so!

Then comes redundancy, that's really a surprise
So maybe it will be time their dreams to realise?
An evening drinking wine with a friend
With a house in France is how it'll end!

Excited for the future, Daisy is so ready to go
But her husband, Ben, admits living in France for him is a, "No!"
The home in France needs lots of work, that's true
But Daisy plans on continuing seeing her dreams through.

New challenges and friends
How will it all end?
To discover that you'll need
This book for yourself to read!

Leaving Ben behind, moving to France, taking the chance,
Maybe whilst there there's the chance of romance?
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.


After ten years of loyal service Daisy Butterworth has been made redundant. Like any clever woman, she knows the cure to redundancy is a little too much wine and her best friend.

Only the next morning, Daisy has more than a hangover . . . she has a whole new house – in France!

Seeing this as an opportunity instead of a disaster, she’s excited about finally moving to France, just as she and her husband always dreamed of. However, Daisy is in for another surprise. Despite planning to move there for over 20 years, her husband never actually intended to go.

So begins a year in France, alone, renovating the gorgeous old farmhouse that is held together by wallpaper and wishes.

Will a year at the French farmhouse be just what Daisy needs? Or could it be the previous owner, Frederique, that is the answer to Daisy’s dreams?
