If you've read the first La Vie en Rose, and you didn't book your flight to France, this one will do it! Incredibly sweet and entertaining. I'm now a huge rose fan! Charming, real and down-to-earth. If we never get to sell rose in France, this is the next best thing. Looking forward to hearing more from Jamie.

I find Jamie Ivey's writing style to be very light and enjoyable reading.
He kind of reminds me of another French expatriate, but I just can't put my finger on who that was.....(wink.)
Jamie's books are very enjoyable, and well worth buying for an devoted Francophile and lover of Provence.
I'm glad that I bought this book.
I'm doing my best to make the experience of reading this book last as long as possible, but it's not easy.
It's kind of like only eating one chocolate French truffle at a time. ;o)

I adore this sequel to Extremely Pale Rose. Jamie, Tanya, and Peter continue the quest to open a rose bar in France. The description
of the countryside and villages is better than any travel book. Jamie embraces French culture while struggling to understand it with great
good humor. All of Jamie Ivey's books are very very funny. My time reading them was a happy part of my day! Now the quest has turned
serious. Jamie's honesty in sharing all their mistakes is endearing . You will so want them to succeed. This book introduces what really
is involved when you choose to reinvent yourself in the ex-patriate life. It is an education in French food, wine and culture. The Provencal
village life is so beguilingly described here that I am sure other readers bought airline tickets right away.Charming tale , well told. Cannot
wait for the 3rd book.
