“A warm, funny novel about life and love in rural France...Stuart’s zesty narrative style is tailor-made for farce...Stuart injects her own brand of va-va-voom into this classic formula.” (The Independent Extra (London))
“Debut novelist Stuart infects Amour-sur-Belle’s byzantine lore with whimsy…and sensual detail.” (Publishers Weekly)
“This frothy debut, as enchanting as Joanne Harris’s Chocolat, follows Guillaume Ladoucette, a barber in southwestern France.” (More Magazine)
“Filled with enchanting settings and a brilliant attention to detail, Stuart’s first novel is an enjoyable trip through the sweetness, sadness, and hilarity that love-and life-often brings.” (Library Journal)
“Following these gentle folks on their blind dates and awkward reentries into the field of romance is a sweet and simple pleasure. Stuart…does manage to richly evoke the fecund sights and smells of rural France…[A] delightful, excursion to a kinder, gentler place.” (Kirkus Reviews)
