Blurb

It's a summer of taking chances for three different women down on the exotic French Riviera.

Rosie is opening her dream cafe and intends to spend the summer turning it into a success -  only to find life tossing some unexpected events and people onto the menu.

Then there's GeeGee who uses the cafe as her summer office - but this year she’s facing a summer of no money and no home.

Recently widowed Erica runs a gift shop with a difference that she has been neglecting since the death of her husband. This summer, together with her young daughter Cammie, she needs to find a way of moving on with her life.

What none of them expects is a summer romance.

 Meet Jennifer

I asked Jennifer to tell us a big about herself

I’m English but I’ve lived in France for the past 17 years. After 11 years down on the Cote d’Azur where Richard was a guardien for a villa, we moved from the Mediterranean coast to a small quirky cottage in Finistere, Brittany. A bit of a culture shock to say the least! When I’m not writing I love reading, cooking and having friends around for lunch - lunches that follow the French tradition of lasting for several hours. Rosie’s Little Cafe on the Riviera is my tenth book and I’m thrilled @HQDigital are issuing it in paperback in conjunction with Sainsburys.

Have you always wanted to be a writer?

Always, but it took a long time for me to achieve my dream.

What do you like writing most?

The genre I read most of - women’s contemporary fiction.

Do you have a special place for writing?

When we moved up here to Brittany there was a room of sorts at the back of the cottage - corrugated roof, windowless and damp. Richard has done a great job in converting it into a ‘proper’ room and it’s now my office cum spare room for visitors.

Are you a pantster or a plotter?

I’m a pantster desperately trying to be more of a plotter - after ten books I’m getting better but I still hate it when editors ask for an outline upfront!

Is your writing ever inspired by your family or real life incidents?

Inspired yes - but never ever used verbatim.

What are you writing at the moment?

I’ve just started my eleventh book which I can’t talk about because I’ve no idea yet whether it’s actually going to work!

What time of the day do you write best?

I find the mornings best for writing - if I don’t start writing then, I don’t seem to do any that day. This year I’m trying to be strict with myself - mornings are for writing, afternoons for e-mails and life stuff and the evenings for editing etc. It’s trying to fit in all the promo and networking that has to be done that I find so difficult.

What are your hobbies?

I occasionally get the urge to do some knitting or sewing. Not really a hobby but I also try and have at least an hours walk every day. The countryside around us here is lovely and it’s good thinking time - and hopefully goes some way to helping banish writer’s bottom!

What advice would you give to other writers?

To remember that you’re in it for the long haul - and it can be a very long haul! Very few achieve overnight bestseller status.

 Good advice, Jennifer!
