The Matchmaker of Perigord (P.S.) by Julia Stuart
The Matchmaker of Perigord (P.S.)

I was first introduced to author Julia Stuart with her 2011 novel "The Tower, the Zoo, and the Tortoise". After I was thoroughly delighted with her writing style and storytelling, I knew I had to read her first novel - and it didn't disappoint!

It provides an excellent escape - full of wonderfully colorful characters, the scenery of a small French village, and all of the food and wine that accompanies it. The lives and histories of the villagers interweave as the town barber becomes the town matchmaker, and missteps lead to hilarious romps, and sweet resolution. Another delightful story from Stuart, and well told!

I adored the writing and whimsy of this book. The story was beautifully told, and had one of the best endings I have read in a long time. Highly recommended!!
