Late Summer in the Vineyard

Late Summer in the Vineyard

The perfect place for a fresh start . . .

Escape to France with LATE SUMMER IN THE VINEYARD – Jo Thomas’s irresistible follow-up to THE OYSTER CATCHER and THE OLIVE BRANCH.

‘A fabulous French feast of fun’ Milly Johnson

‘Love this book … makes me want to live on a vineyard in the South of France!’ Lisa Zupan, Producer of P.S. I Love You

Emmy Bridges has always looked out for others. Now it’s time to put down roots of her own.

Working for a wine-maker in France is the opportunity of a lifetime for Emmy. Even if she doesn’t know a thing about wine – beyond what’s on offer at the local supermarket.

There’s plenty to get to grips with in the rustic town of Petit Frère. Emmy’s new work friends need more than a little winning over. Then there’s her infuriatingly brash tutor, Isaac, and the enigmatic Madame Beaumont, tucked away in her vineyard of secrets.

But Emmy will soon realise that in life – just as in wine-making – the best things happen when you let go and trust your instincts. Particularly when there’s romance in the air…

What readers are saying about Late Summer in the Vineyard:

‘A light-hearted romance set in a French vineyard. What could be better for summertime reading!

Funny, romantic and heart-warming read of love, friendships and wine

‘I loved this book – the sights, sounds, smells of France during the wine making season was truly believable. A great story with funny, loveable characters who I wanted as friends!’
