A mature cross-cultural romance about an Australian transplant to France whose relationship is tested by cultural misunderstandings, a surprise move to the French countryside, and the tiny matter of a baby on the way
Ella left Australia on a whim and found happily ever after in Paris. Six months later . . . her dreamy life with French cheesemonger turned boyfriend, Serge, is thrown completely off course. She's got a bun—a brioche!—in the oven. While Ella is busy worrying how she'll survive nine months without unpasteur-ized cheese, Serge is clandestinely planning to relocate his growing family to a goat farm in the Loire Valley. But can their relationship survive all these upheavals once outside of their Parisian love bubble? Follow Ella and Serge to the countryside in this lively sequel to Fromage à Trois.


"Brownlee's charming sequel to Fromage à Trois follows a pregnant Australian woman's struggle to adapt to life in the French countryside. . . . [T]here's no denying both characters' charisma, and it is sweet to witness them learn to work through their issues. The affable cast, appealing setting, and appetizing descriptions of French cuisine make this entertaining romance a worthwhile diversion." —Publishers Weekly

"Full of charm, Fromage à Trois opens up the delicious aspects of Paris and secrets of the French way of loving [...] Witty, voluptuous, very français—adorable!" —Nina George, international bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop, on Fromage à Trois  

"Brownlee craftily combines the beauty and charm of Paris with the allure of romance, creating a novel of sensory delight." —Publishers Weekly onFromage à Trois
