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 moved to Paris on a whim—and found happily ever after. But after six months of romantic bliss living with her French boyfriend, cheesemonger Serge, Ella's new life is thrown off course. An unplanned pregnancy doesn't seem too bad, until Serge unexpectedly decides to move their growing family to a goat farm in the Loire Valley, without consulting Ella. Can Ella and Serge's relationship survive their relocation to the depths of the French countryside?


"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 on Fromage à Trois
