Love is in the air…
Gabbie Andrews thought that her dreams of becoming a professional perfumer at the prestigious House of Gasnier on the French Riviera were finally coming true. There’s nothing she loves more than creating the perfect fragrance for her delighted customers…

So when her boss sends her to work in a laboratory in Paris for six months, she quits on the spot! Returning to her home in Devon, she soon finds that her herbal remedies are in more demand than she ever imagined.

And when she bumps into Max, the gorgeous mechanic who works at her father’s garage, she realizes that life might just be about to change forever!

Was hooked from the first few pages with this enchanting story that really does have a bit of everything. 

There are a few chapters set in Grasse, France in the perfume capital of the world, there is a top perfumer who quits her job, then discovers the family business is failing, there is a potential new romance, a mystery over finances, and of course the key to the title The Summerhouse of Happiness. 

All of this and more in a well written book from an author i tend to enjoy. I loved all the descriptions, and also the fledgling romance. 

I was amused by Gabbie's father whose main hobby appears to be archery, never heard so many archery terms in one place before - potentially not even watching it at the Olympics!!

This book kept me very entertained from start to finish, and I believe it will bring happiness to those that read it.  i am certainly far more intrigued by aromatherapy than i ever was before as a result. 

Thank you to Netgalley and HQ Digital for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
