After four months of non-stop writing and three trips to France, ‘French Summer’ is finally in it’s editing stages. It’s the first novel I’m writing since I went full-time as an author, so it’s a big thing. I’ve enjoyed my time in France so much, that I’ve decided to spend the month of June there to start on my fifth novel. I’ll be bringing El Comandante and Buddy with me and I’ve promised to order them dog-steps for the pool 🙂
Also, I’m thrilled that the super talented photographer Julia Caesar from Sweden has agreed for me to use her photograph on my cover. I think it perfectly sums up the vibe of the book. Let me know what you think!
The blurb isn’t final yet, but here’s a preview:
Newly divorced and bought out of her company, Nathalie rents a holiday home in the South of France. After years of hard work and a failed marriage in Chicago, she’s looking for some peace and quiet, a place to clear her mind and figure out her future.
Lena loves women, her dog, and gardening, but that’s about as complicated as it gets. When she meets her new tenant for the summer, it proves hard to stay professional as a guardian, especially when that tenant turns out to be everything she ever wanted and more.
As time passes and boundaries blur, the moment of goodbye becomes inevitable. Nathalie isn’t looking for a new love, especially not in the form of a woman, and Lena has no desire to get her heart crushed again.
Is it possible to find home in a country you’ve never been? And is it worth the risk, giving up everything for someone you barely know? They say home is where the heart is…
