Teaser Tuesday - The Little French Guesthouse by Helen Pollard

I finished Arsenic for Tea this morning (ohmygoodness it was BEYOND excellent! I swear Hazel Wong is my spirit animal.), and debated using that for my Teaser Tuesday post even though I used it for the most recent Book Beginnings & Friday 56. I was having a hard time picking the perfect blurb, though, since the entire book is just one big blurb of perfection ... so I'm using the book I'm reading next thanks to NetGalley and the always-awesome folks at Bookouture!
The Little French Guesthouse is being released on April 28th and you can pre-order it for Kindle for only 99 cents in the US!

Amazon Description

Sun, croissants and fine wine. Nothing can spoil the perfect holiday. Or can it?

When Emmy Jamieson arrives at La Cour des Roses, a beautiful guesthouse in the French countryside, she can’t wait to spend two weeks relaxing with boyfriend Nathan. Their relationship needs a little TLC and Emmy is certain this holiday will do the trick. But they’ve barely unpacked before he scarpers with Gloria, the guesthouse owner’s cougar wife. 

Rupert, the ailing guesthouse owner, is shell-shocked. Feeling somewhat responsible, and rather generous after a bottle (or so) of wine, heartbroken Emmy offers to help. Changing sheets in the gîtes will help keep her mind off her misery. 

Thrust into the heart of the local community, Emmy suddenly finds herself surrounded by new friends. And with sizzling hot gardener Ryan and the infuriating (if gorgeous) accountant Alain providing welcome distractions, Nathan is fast becoming a distant memory. 

Fresh coffee and croissants for breakfast, feeding the hens in the warm evening light; Emmy starts to feel quite at home. But it would be madness to walk away from her friends, family, and everything she’s ever worked for, to take a chance on a place she fell for on holiday – wouldn’t it?


  1. I'm not a huge fan of romances, but the synopsis of this one intrigued me enough to go look for other books by Helen Pollard since this one isn't out yet. I discovered her blog and am enjoying reading it. Looks like she'll have a sequel to this book out in August! I'm going to add her blog my RSS feed! Thanks for sharing! And thanks for visiting my blog!
