About this ebook

Finalist for the RNA Jackie Collins Award for Romantic Suspense

Will Amy’s dreams of a Provençal escape come true?

There are many reasons Amy Carter is determined to make Bellefontaine, her farmhouse hotel in the French countryside, a success. Of course, there’s the time and money she’s put in to making it beautiful, but she also has something to prove – particularly to people like Fabien Coste.

Fabien is the owner of the nearby château, and he might just be the most arrogant, patronising man Amy has ever met ... unfortunately, he’s also the most handsome.

But as rumours circulate in the local community and secrets about the old farmhouse begin to reveal themselves, Amy quickly sees the less idyllic side of life at Bellefontaine. Could Fabien be the man to help prevent her Provençal dream from turning into a nightmare?

This was previously published as A Spell in Provence by Accent Press in 2015. This is a revised, substantially edited and updated version. Published October 2020 by Choc Lit.

This is a great story about starting a new life in France. Amy is starting her own hotel when love and hate intervene. The story weaves ancient history with contemporary life in a scary manner. I loved how the author made both Amy and myself distrust what was happening. The portrayal of the beginning of Amy's new life was totally believable, but the horror interlaced would put anyone off of doing it! Meeting Fabian would however be a major bonus, what a hero! An exceptionally well written book with not one but two romances tied into it. I cannot wait for Marie's next book.

Great story! Set in French countryside, Amy’s dream of a new life is not as she planned. There are wonderful twists and turns including midnight visitors, secret cults, long hidden secrets and a gorgeous neighbour who may not be all that he seems. A rollercoaster of an adventure and possible love story set in great location. I loved every page! Totally recommend!

Amy Carter is the new owner of Bellefontaine – a chateau which has a sinister past and is linked to sacred deities and curses. From the first day she arrives, she is plagued by bad luck and it seems that someone is out to ruin her business and make her leave. She also has nightmares and wakes up in the middle of the nearby forest with her nightdress torn after dreaming of being kidnapped. Will she ever find out why this is all happening to her? There are many twists and turns to this story & I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. Very well written.
