The French for Always by Fiona Valpy

Five weddings. The perfect venue. One little hitch…

Leaving the grey skies of home behind to transform a crumbling French Château into a boutique wedding venue is a huge leap of faith for Sara. She and fiancé Gavin sink their life savings into the beautiful Château Bellevue – set under blue skies and surrounded by vineyards in the heart of Bordeaux.

After months of hard work, the dream starts to become a reality – until Gavin walks out halfway through their first season. Overnight, Sara is left very much alone with the prospect of losing everything.

With her own heart breaking, Sara has five weddings before the end of the season to turn the business around and rescue her dreams. With the help of the locals and a little French courage, can she save Château Bellevue before the summer is over?

 Gavin and Sara have bought a small castle in France where they've started their new business. Other people are getting married at their venue, but they aren't a very happy couple themselves. When Gavin leaves Sara on her own all of a sudden she's determined to give organizing the weddings a go on her own. With the help of some great friends and neighbors she tries to save her business and her personal life.
 The French for Always is such a fun summer read! I could picture the surroundings, the gorgeous men and the wonderful wines. The weddings were all different and had their own story which I liked a lot. I've become a huge fan of Fiona Valpy, she can make her main characters come to life very well. I loved this fantastic book!


  1. I loved this book and The French for Love as well. They're perfect for a long summer night or for dreaming about them.

  2. I read this review, bought the book and read it as quickly as I could even though I'd have loved to have finished it in a day as it was so good I couldn't put it down.

    1. I'm glad you liked it! I've read quite a few wonderful books lately and they really make my day!

  3. I read this review, bought the book and absolutely loved it. If it wasn't for the fact I had to go to work I would have stayed up all night to complete it.
