Genre Contemporary womans fiction

The grape harvest at the Cambon family’s magnificent vineyard is normally a cause for celebration. But when an accident destroys the crop, Clarisse Cambon knows exactly who to blame – her daughter-in-law Jane. 
It’s the latest incident in a decades-long feud whose origin both women have concealed from Luc, who struggles to keep his wife and mother on speaking terms. But is Luc the saint  he appears to be? When tragedy strikes, Jane is thrown in doubt. What secrets has her husband been keeping?
Forced to charge of the ailing vineyard, Jane uncovers further proof that Luc may not be the man she fell in love with twenty years ago. And worse still, she knows that her old enemy Clarisse is the only one who knows the truth.
My Review
I loved this story it was a fresh idea for a novel. The Forgotten Summer has secrets, tragedy, a hidden past and family mysteries all set in the glorious Provence. Is the truth something you really want to know? During the renovations of Luke’s study, Jane visited only twice. And now here she was, turning the lock in the door that led off from the pantry, bringing a gust of fresh air into his sealed world. her heart was beating fast. If there were secrets here, clues to his troubles, she had to know them, but now, so close, she almost felt afraid of what she might uncover.
