How to Make a French Family by Samantha Vérant.

Thanks to Sourcebooks, we have FIVE copies to give away!

Say bonjour to a whole new way of life!

Take one French widower, his two young children, and drop a former city girl from Chicago into a small town in southwestern France. Shake vigorously... and voilá: a blended Franco-American family whose lives will all drastically change.

Floating on a cloud of newlywed bliss, Samantha couldn’t wait to move to France to begin her life with her new husband, Jean-Luc, and his kids. But almost from the moment the plane touches down, Samantha realizes that there are a lot of things about her new home—including flea-ridden cats, grumpy teenagers, and language barriers—that she hadn’t counted on.

Struggling to feel at home and wondering when exactly her French fairy tale is going to start, Samantha isn’t sure if she really has what it takes to make it in la belle France. But when a second chance at life and love is on the line, giving up isn’t an option.
How to Make a French Family is the heartwarming and sometimes hilarious story of the culture clashes and faux pas that , in the end, add up to one happy family.

My favorite French word is desole with an accent on the last e. I was born in Montreal and lived there for most of my life so I learned French and many expresisons which I still enjoy using.

Pied-a-terre, a great way to say you have a really, really small and expensive apartment in France.

I always think Bonjour sounds so much better than good-day/hello.

I love to read books set in France. I have always wanted to visit there and know I never will, so I fill that void with escaping there through books. One time things didn't go as planned was yesterday. My friend wanted to go meet the guys from the tv show Property Brothers and it was freezing yesterday for an outside event. Even wearing a sweater and coats, the wind cut right through it. But when it started raining and sleeting, I was about ready to call it a day. But I know how bad she wanted to see the guys so I stayed right there with her. This morning I woke to a plugged up nose so I know I have a cold coming on. But it's all worth it because seeing how excited she was made me happy.

I'm a huge fan of JoJo Moyes. Saw her live a couple of years ago. Was impressed by her as well as by her books.

Rain wasn't expected on my wedding day but we dealt with it and forty-two years later, life is good.

I love their word for umbrella--parapluie. Sounds so cool. As for things not going as expected, I can't recall anything major. The only thing I can think of is that I was packed to go to a Circle K International event and was waiting for my ride. My ride never materialized or there was a misunderstanding as to how to find me; so, I ended up not going.
