Franny Marten’s life is unraveling. Expecting to meet her boyfriend, Marcus Marks, for dinner, she finds his wife waiting for her instead. After the initial shock wears off, Franny finds she has more in common with Clare Marks than she could ever have imagined. And, amazingly, the women become fast friends. When Franny is unexpectedly offered an all-expenses-paid invitation to a family reunion in Provence, she goes—and takes Clare along for the ride.

Provence is everything Franny pictured but nothing at all what she expected. There are dangerous family secrets buried deep in the lovely landscape of southern France, and there is someone who will go to great lengths to keep Franny from uncovering them.

Elizabeth Adler casts an unforgettable spell as Invitation to Provence transports listeners to a truly magical place.

    " The different characters' personalities and the fact that this book is set mostly in Provence made it an enjoyable read. Occasionally I found some of the events unbelievable although I liked that the plot had twists and turns. A good book if you want something interesting and light and especially if you enjoy the details and description about the South of France "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bettynz | 1/27/2014

    " Listened to the first 1/4 when not sleeping well & the remainder whilst traveling. I thoroughly enjoyed the reader & particularly the French characters & her interpretation of them. The accent for the Aussie character was hysterical. Good story & I'll definitely look for more by Ms Adler, though sadly there aren't any on overdrive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/14/2014

    " Dreamy novel, worth the read just to enjoy the Provence scenery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry Grussing | 1/13/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Book Concierge | 1/10/2014

    " Formula romance - down-and-out girl meets strong, rich man; a villian threatens, but there's a happy ending. Adler writes good vacation beach books. "

    " Easy reading, mix of romance and drama. Nice setting, vividly captures the imagination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/1/2014

    " This was a good book, but I found myself skimming the very detailed descriptions of scenery, food, etc. I would have liked to see more detail in the relationships instead of the details in the setting. Oh well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanne | 12/22/2013

    " Predictable drivel. Audiobook kept me company in the car, but if I were reading the actual book I wouldn't have finished it this fast. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kassy | 12/12/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 10/17/2013

    " More of a 2.5 star book, a pocket book shared by my (ex) mother-in-law. Highly formulaic, but enjoyable none-the-less. Love, good people, bad people, the family vineyard, twists and turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 6/18/2013

    " Just a French family mystery with a winemaking family. An easy read that tickles the French you may have learned to speak. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanie | 5/8/2013

    " This is a "beach read" when you don't want to think. The overall storyline was good but there wasn't much depth. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jane | 5/6/2013

    " I can't believe I read the whole thing. I felt my IQ slipping with every page of this sappy, implausible romance. (Judy, I should have been warned off by the yellow cover). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carmen | 12/18/2012

    " A strange thing, an invitation comes in the mail from a relative whom she doesn't know. And she goes! That part I found hard to believe. But it did set the scene for the resolution of a long time feud, two new relationships and a new grandchild. It was a warm, funny story. "
