New release!

If it’s Friday, it must be France …

I’m delighted to let you know that Book Two in the Villa des Violettes series is now available on all platforms. I hope you enjoy the ongoing adventure of Kat and her new life in the south of France.

The Love in Provence characters are celebrating a glorious spring on the Côte d’Azur …

There are sweet-smelling blossoms, buds bursting into bloom, explosions of golden mimosa, dazzling sunshine, a shimmering sea …

And a worrying disappearance!

A hidden past is uncovered and shocking truths are revealed. But life goes on.

Kat and Philippe welcome their first B & B guests to the Villa and are busy with other demands, all the while keeping hope alive as police search for their friend.

A special request from Simone and an unexpected appearance turn a planned motorcycle trip on Corsica into so much more.

Thank you to everyone who has already taken the time to leave a review! Every single one is most appreciated.

      Hi Lynn! Thanks very much. I like the covers too. The artwork was originally done for the first book in the series by two women who were on my France tour last September. We had such fun working on that cover that I decided to keep the door the same for all three books (one more in the autumn) and they create a new image for me from photos I supply. It’s real teamwork. 🙂

  3. Congratulations on another Kat and Philippe story. Sure to be a winner!

  4. Congratulations! I am so happy for you. Looking forward to reading.
