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."
Listen to the first book, A Rather Lovely Inheritance.

Great story, very enjoyable a but the narrator kept mispronouncing...Monsieur...Mougins....and using a fake French accent!!!!Ms Kellgreen needs to do her homework....Mougins is pronounced as if it has a j !!!! And to mispronounce Monsieur is just sad especially while using a fake French accent!!!!!
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!
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 have read 2 others by Belmond and I think enjoyed them a bit more. But this was enjoyable and I do recommend.
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.
