Blooming in the Sun
Nicolette & Dorothea Book 2
The Riviera is vast and full of secrets.
Dorothea has spent two years as Headmistress Smythe-Barney, and she deserves a summer vacation. Now she's hungry for her own legacy, and there's no better place than Italy for an amateur linguist to learn more tongues.
Madame Nicolette Laurent is growing older, bien sûr, and the chance to make her mark on the Riviera is not to be missed. Can our uprooted lovers find a place to bloom?
This sumptuous road trip isn't quite a romance, but writes a love letter to the Italian Riviera.
This is the sequel to Budding Romance. 12,400 words.
