About this deal

It is always a pleasure to escape from the real world into a Katie Fforde book, and this is no exception, though I still like her early books the best.

When she goes for the interview she has to lie about her age as it is for a nanny position to three children and she is only 20!

It also left me feeling a little uncomfortable when Alexandra was assessing men for their suitability as suiters and that she should prefer this one instead of that one because her's closer in age, Perhaps it was something that women did in the sixties? Characters and places are beautifully depicted and I found the setting in the early 60s quite unusual and very interesting.

I love any book that can take me on a beautiful journey in foreign countries, from the comfort of my home. It is a light, feel good book that will probably appeal to readers of women's fiction or romance novels. The characters are well drawn and believable, and there is a strong sense of time and place, with France in 1963 vividly depicted.The only nannying experience she has had is that of her own nannies who brought her up after her parents died. Katie Fforde has accompanied me through my young adult years, all the way to the present, and I know that whenever I pick up one of her books, I will be engulfed in the story, immediately. She believes falling in love is the best thing in the world, and she wants all her characters to experience it, and her readers to share their stories. This is a perfect holiday book so if you are off to the sun get a copy and take it to the pool or beach.

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.When the family members decide she should join them to attend a Swiss finishing school, she decides to spend a few days in Paris first, visiting the city.
