Escape to south-west France with LATE SUMMER IN THE VINEYARD - the irresistible new novel from the bestselling author of THE OYSTER CATCHER and THE OLIVE BRANCH.Emmy Bridges has landed the opportunity of a lifetime. What could be better than three months working on a family-run vineyard nestled in the rolling hills of France? It certainly makes a change from organising office collections to buy gifts for colleagues' weddings and babies. Especially when there won't be one for Emmy any time soon. It's just hard to bring home a man when your sixty-five-year-old dad is up watching Pointless with a Horlicks. But as Emmy copes with ambitious co-workers and amorous advances, she will realise that the very best - and most unexpected - things happen when you trust your instincts. It's time to let go of the past, and finally start living.
