    Like Marion above, I was thrilled to receive a Kindle. After learning how to use it!!! The little French Guesthouse, was one of the first I’d read and I thoroughly enjoyed it so much I wanted more, so hearing there was ‘a return to’ on its way, I pre ordered it straight away. It didn’t disappoint either, I loved the story the characters and the idyllic La Cour des Roses :-). Just wish it was real, as I would be checking in right now!! 🙂

    Really loving reading The Little French Guesthouse. Have just moved into our permanent home close to Chinon so it’s great to identify some of the places in the book. We loved the zoo that Emmie and Alain visited. Can’t wait to read the sequel.

    • Helen Pollard says:

      Thank you, Liz – lovely to know that you enjoyed the book and that it reminds you of places you know. We loved Chinon when we visited a few years ago. Wishing you many happy years in your new home!

    Having read The Little French Guesthouse, I couldn’t get my hands on Return To… fast enough. Both are stunning reads and as another reader said it can go on, I certainly hope there are more. Great the way the secondary characters developed too.
