An English Girl Abroad

An English Girl Abroad

Author(s): Alice Murray

Location(s): Northern France

Genre(s): Fiction, RomCom

Era(s): 1990s

Katie Jones is twenty-one and embarking on her year abroad, working as a groom for a French family. She can’t wait to get started, but things never seem to go smoothly for Katie. Juggling the challenges of a foreign language, four uncooperative equines and an increasingly distant boyfriend back home, Katie moves from one flustered encounter to the next in her own, painfully English, style. Finding herself increasingly distracted by the enigmatic and infuriatingly attractive Daniel de Loubens, time is running out for Katie. Can she tame the horses in her life, as well as her own heart?

An English Girl Abroad is for anyone who’s ever dreamt of an equestrian lifestyle, or just loves animals, the countryside and a good old-fashioned romance.

As witty as it is charming, with a host of colourful characters both human and otherwise, this is a gentle, feel-good romp that will transport you back in time, to the shady forests and open fields of northern France in the 1990’s.

Fans of Katie Fforde, Fiona Walker and Miranda Hart will eat up this light-hearted, chick-lit comedy romance with an equestrian twist. An entertaining page-turner with a hapless heroine and an irresistible hero, Alice Murray’s debut novel is guaranteed to have you laughing out loud and leave you wanting more.
