A Wedding in Provence is the second in a series of three about three girls who met on a cookery course in London. Alexandra is on her way to live with her starchy relations and decides to stop off in Paris for a couple of days sightseeing. She meets a young American woman and Alexandra’s plans change. She heads off to Provence to be a nanny. I loved writing this. Alexandra is such a strong character, she more or less told me her story. She did take me way out of my writing comfort zone, setting a book in France when I couldn’t go there, for a start, but I loved living in her world. She has skills she didn’t know she had and was extremely resourceful. While I couldn’t go to Provence during Lock Down, I had been to Provence a couple of times and had been to France fairly often, which helped. Also, my husband’s sister had lived in rural France as a child and she was very helpful. Of course I had watched every TV programme there was about chateaux, but interestingly, the one I created was quite unlike any of the ones I saw. I’m currently writing the third in the series.
