You're invited! Bride's or groom's side?
Dateline: London, Paris, Antibes. It's time to get down to nuptial nuts and bolts. But while heiress Penny's distant relatives insist that the wedding be held in their native France, Jeremy's kin won't have it anywhere but England. And either choice might just re-ignite the Hundred Year's War.
Then, in a family château high above the perfume fields of Grasse, Penny's French cousin offers her the loan of an ancient bridal tapestry. But Penny has barely begun to crack its perplexing imagery before a series of strange events unfolds, threatening to derail the wedding. From a secret chalet on Lake Geneva, to a nostalgic stop at the opulent Train Bleu, to a winner-take-all gamble in Monte Carlo, Penny and Jeremy are off on another romp...while the clock is ticking down until they say, "I do."

I have actually read, and re-read this delightful series of books and cannot wait for C.A. Belmond to write more.
In this book (as well as the other two of the series), she includes a little adventure, a little romance, and tops it all off with exquisite locales!
The Penny and Jeramy series harkens me back to my days of immersion in Nancy Drew novels. But they are definitely grownup novels. Charming settings, fun plot twists and likable characters whose witty banter and intelligence kept me engaged. I hope C. A. Belmond continues their adventures in ore sequels.
Hard to figure out the correct order at first, but worth it. I was entertained by this sweet story of a couple and the mysteries they solve. Slow at times but makes sense in the end.
After listening to the first three books of this series I have to say that they are charming, lovely, beautiful, enchanting - and more! They're filled with romance and mystery, and the romance comes from more than just the main couple, Penny & Jeremy; it comes from the beautiful prose describing the surroundings - the locales, food, clothes, decor, and people. These books are a wonderful, fun, escape from reality - the kind of book that brings you into another world completely. Of course, Katherine Kellgren's narration is superb (she's my favorite of all time & it's well deserved)!
I listen to a lot of British theme books from a variety of historical periods. What truly draws me to this series is the scenery and idea of living in both England and France. Penny's love of history and imagining how aristocrats traveled in the past is spot on.
The love between Jeremy and Penny is the type of love we all want to find. This story is beautifully read and leaves you feeling happy and hopeful!
It was light and fun with great descriptions and interesting locations.
The narrator is one of my favorites.
I hope this is not the end of the series.
The stories are fun. I like imagining me in the world the author created. To have that life, what fun. AND Investigate fun mysteries .
The narrator is really good as well with the many accents and her excellent way of putting tone and attitude to the story
If the author got to the point quicker about the significance of the tapestry. Also Rollo is an interesting character but he wasn't utilized much in this second book. I would have liked for the author to use Rollo more for comic relief. Also, the author seemed to drag out the engagement, and the main character's reticence to plan her wedding in a chinese-water-torture way.
A little sappy and emotionally mushy ... not my style.
Yes. I liked her voices. She made both males and females very believable - good annunciation, good listening speed, good accents!
Disappointed. I had listened to book 1, and I did not feel this was the same calibre of story.
