The French for Love Reviews
Lively and sweet. A cottage in Provence, a single English woman recovering from betrayal of a fiance and loss of her job, wine tasting, beautiful French man, and romance. Light-hearted and enjoyable as a quick read.
"The French for Love" is a nice light read. I just finished it while lounging on the beach.

She decides to go to France to see the house and the experience of spending time there is life changing for her. Gina is in the wine business and she is studying wine in France.

There's some sadness, a little bit of love, bit of a feel good book. An easy book to indulge in.
Not top literature, but enjoyable. Chick lit, which I can enjoy, with some French information.
I really enjoyed the book The French for Love by Fiona Valpy. I read it all in one day rather than grading papers or preparing for classes or doing laundry for my son who goes back to college next week.
Gina, the main character, lives in the UK and is in her late 20s. Major life changes in the past year spin her into a whirlwind. Her father died, her favorite aunt who lived in France died, her live-in boyfriend left her for another woman, and she lost her job as a wine purchaser for a small wine ...more
