Summary
"Ellen Sussman, nationally bestselling author of French Lessons, delivers a feast for the senses in A Wedding in Provence--a moving novel of love, forgiveness, and trust, set among the beaches and vineyards of southern France. When Olivia and Brody drive up to their friend's idyllic inn--nestled in a valley in the Mediterranean town of Cassis--they know they've chosen the perfect spot for their wedding. The ceremony will be held in the lush garden, and the reception will be a small party of only their closest family and friends. But when Olivia and Brody's guests check in, their peaceful wedding weekend is quickly thrown off balance. The first to arrive is Nell, Olivia's oldest daughter from her first marriage. Impulsive and reckless, she invites a complete stranger--an enigmatic man who is both alluring and a bit dangerous--to be her guest at the wedding. The next is Carly, Olivia's youngest daughter, the responsible and pragmatic one. Away from her demanding job and a strained relationship, she feels an urgent need to cut loose--and for once do something brash and unpredictable. Then there is Jake, Brody's playboy best man, and Fanny, Brody's mother, who is coping with the fallout of her own marriage. And in the middle of it all is Olivia, navigating the dramas, joys, and pitfalls of planning a wedding and starting a new life. A delicious, compelling, and utterly enchanting novel, A Wedding in Provence captures the complex and enduring bonds of family, and our boundless faith in love. Advance praise for Wedding in Provence "Utterly charming and wildly romantic."--Christina Baker Kline, New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train Praise for The Paradise Guest House "With well-drawn, genuinely likable lead characters, [The Paradise Guest House] takes readers on an edgy island adventure over memorable emotional terrain."--Associated Press "[A] touching panorama of paradise."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for French Lessons "[A] luscious novel of love and longing. The narrative feels as light as a glass of rose at an outdoor cafe, but its insights carry the richness of a Burgundy."--People (four stars) "Sizzling escapist reading."--Entertainment Weekly"--
