A French Wedding is a delicious novel about six college friends reuniting on the coast of Brittany to celebrate one of their own's 40th birthday. With sumptuous food and plenty of wine, the table is set for tricky romantic entanglements, fiery outbursts, and a range of secrets. Listeners who loved The Vacationers and The Little Paris Bookshop will devour this irresistible novel.
Max is a washed-up rock star who's about to turn 40 and feeling nostalgic for his university days. All he says he wants for his birthday is to host his old friends at his house in the French countryside for a weekend of good food and reminiscing. But he has an ulterior motive: Finally ready to settle down, this is his chance to declare his undying love to his best friend, Helen.
Max's private chef, Juliette, has just returned to her hometown after a nasty breakup and her parents' failing health move her to sell her dream restaurant in Paris. Still reeling, Juliette throws herself into her job, hoping that the peace and quiet it offers will be the perfect cure for her broken heart.
But when Max's friends arrive, the introverted, dreamy Juliette finds herself drawn out of her orderly kitchen and into their tumultuous relationships. A weekend thinking about the past spurs more than one emotional crisis, as the friends take stock of whether they've lived up to their ideals. Together for the first time in years, it's not long before love triangles, abandoned dreams, and long-held resentments bubble over, culminating in a wedding none of them ever expected.
"A French Wedding is a sumptuous novel that will, literally take you away. It has the scenery, the food, the friends, the scandals. It's a delightful escape to the French seaside that I, for one, never wanted to leave." (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times best-selling author of Rumors and The Matchmaker)
"Tunnicliffe delivers a solid story with a cinematic sweep that brings together an ensemble of complex, fully developed characters and a lovingly rendered setting, sure to please fans of romantic women's fiction." (Booklist)
