Adèle Villeneuve is attempting the impossible. At twenty-four she’s opened an events company in her small French village, which at last count has a population of 1501. Even her parents tried to stop her. But Adèle has a plan. Or, at least she did.

Then the Reniers returned to town.

Aside from the dilapidated chateau that’s sat in ruin for the past forty years, Saint-Germain is known for one other thing: a bitter feud between the Reniers and the Villeneuves that has gone on for so long no one remembers how it started. It’s practically folklore, a hatred so deep it ended with the Reniers leaving France back in the eighties, never to be seen or heard from again.

Until now.

With the feud reignited, Adèle’s quiet life is upended. Even more so when she finds out that the Reniers are not only refurbishing the chateau but also opening a competing events company. When Finn Renier, the alluring son of her father’s enemy, offers her a truce that could save her business, she makes a decision that goes against her family, a choice that changes everything.

As she finds herself falling for the one person she’s not supposed to, secrets and lies become entangled, a dangerous truth threatening to be revealed.

Because Finn isn’t all that he seems.

And the Reniers didn’t just return to Saint-Germain for a fresh start.

From the Author

Although False Start Fairy Tale is a stand-alone, it exists in the same world as The Sea of Lost Things, and you’ll even get to see some familiar faces.

Both books are contemporary romances and are set in France. The Sea of Lost Things takes place around Normandy, and False Start Fairy Tale is in a fictional town called Saint-Germain in the Mayenne Department.

Charlotte Reynolds is no stranger to loss. After a car accident took her parents, she was raised by her maternal grandfather. Six months ago, she lost him too. At thirty-one, with no living relatives, Charlotte finds herself alone in the world.

That is until she opens the box.

Her grandfather’s possessions have sat in the corner, untouched since his passing. Inside, she discovers a letter, and in it a secret he kept for over seventy years. A love story, that began on D-Day, between he and a French woman, and ended with the birth of her mother.

With no one left to ask who the mysterious woman could be, Charlotte decides to drop everything and go to France to uncover the truth for herself. Soon after arriving, it becomes clear that her search won’t be easy. Things are complicated further when Jonah Emmerson shows up at the B&B. The handsome but arrogant Brit takes an almost instant disliking to her. A feeling, that she discovers, is mutual.

Charlotte vows to keep clear of him, but when he unexpectedly offers to help with her search, she finds herself accepting, a decision that sets them on an adventure across the quaint countryside and stunning coastline of Normandy. As they visit different townships for answers, an attraction builds between them, the tension thawing into something else entirely.

But with every step that brings them closer, the past follows. And while Charlotte may be searching for hers, Jonah is running from his.

Sometimes, looking back is the only way forward.
