A wonderfully romantic, feel-good new novel set in a French château over the most magical time of the year! From the bestselling author of Escape to the French Farmhouse.
When their grandfather dies, Fliss and her sisters are astonished to inherit a French château! Travelling to Normandy to visit the beautiful if faded house, they excitedly make plans over delicious crêpes and local cider in the town nearby.
But they soon discover the château needs major work, a huge tax bill is due . . . and there's a sitting tenant, Madame Charlotte Cadieux, to whom they owe a monthly allowance!
Unable to sell but strapped for cash, Fliss determines to spruce up the elegant old rooms and open a B&B. But why are Jacques - Madame's grandson and the mayor - and the other townsfolk so hostile? How did Fliss' grandfather come to own the place anyway? And will Jacques and Fliss be able to put their differences aside to save the château?
It seems like nothing but trouble. But as the old year gives way to the new, it could be a new beginning for them all . . .
Inspired by Escape to the Chateau, this is a cosy and uplifting novel to curl up with, from the author of Escape to the French Farmhouse and Finding Love at the Christmas Market.
