Leaving her cheating ex-boyfriend behind, Rosie Fielding heads away from her hectic working life in the London fashion world to spend a blissful – and man-free – weekend basking in the Cote d’Azur sunshine. Surely the Mediterranean sea breeze will blow away memories of the disastrous anniversary dinner-that-never-was??
During a chance visit to a nearby perfumery, Rosie meets the owner, Jean-Michel de Fleurenne, whose distillery and crumbling chateau are desperately in need of her PR expertise. Everyone knows you should never mix business with pleasure… but in the heat of Provence the rules seem to melt away. The soft perfume of the lavender fields and the rich citrus aromas of the fruit trees are blissfully intoxicating and soon, maybe all too soon, Rosie is falling madly in love with a certain impossibly handsome French perfumier and his aristocratic life at Chateau de Fleurenne.
But if French is the language of love then why doesn’t the path of true love run smoothly for Rosie?
