After one particularly bad day at work, marketing executive and confirmed city girl Melanie Jones decides to give up her old life in search of something new and simpler in South West France. With little knowledge of the country, even less of the language and just the memory of a disastrous school French exchange and a few day trips to Calais, she embarks on her adventure with a suitcase full of optimism and not a little bit of naivety. After all, how different can life in France be? After a series of adventures with skirt-ripping tractors, handsome twin farmers, celebrity not-quite-beens, unusual toilets and a bonkers ex-pat community, all topped up, of course, with lashings of rosé, Melanie begins to discover that her new life in France isn’t quite what she’d thought it would be.
It has been a year since the publication of Melanie Jones' fabulous novel 'L'Amour Actually'. I received the opportunity to review the book last year, and I thoroughly enjoyed it (click here to read my review)! To celebrate, Melanie Jones is giving away a signed copy of 'L'Amour Actually' and I'm really excited to say that this giveaway is open internationally! Good luck to all of you, you've got until this upcoming Sunday to enter!
