Amsterdam Exposed tells the true one-of-a-kind story of an innocent exchange student who moves to Amsterdam hoping to write a book about the red light district and everything that follows. It's an American abroad story, and also a love story; it's an uplifting tragedy, full of humor from beginning to end; it's an Amsterdam survival guide; a sympathetic look at a societal problem; a little piece of policy; a sweet farewell to a world just about gone; and, ultimately, as close as you can come to a free trip to Amsterdam without leaving your couch. In sum, Amsterdam Exposed takes readers deep into the district on a journey never before possible, forever reshaping their understanding of one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world, and the women who work there. If you've ever spent time in Amsterdam, or dreamed of doing so, this book's for you. <br /><br /><b>Awards</b><br /><b></b><br /><div>Grand Prize Winner, <i>Hollywood Book Festival (2018)</i></div><div><i></i></div><div><i></i></div><div></div><div> <br />First Place,<i> Writer's Digest Self-Published eBook Awards (2018)</i></div><div><i></i><br />First Place,<i> Beverly Hills Book Awards (2018)<br /><br /></i>Winner, <i>B.R.A.G.

Fans of <b>Katie Fforde</b>, <b>Carole Matthews</b>, Victoria Connelly or Erica James – and everyone who enjoyed Nick Alexander’s <i>The French House</i> – will love Fiona Valpy.<br /><br /><b>Five weddings. The perfect venue. One little hitch…</b><br /><br />Leaving the grey skies of home behind to transform a crumbling French Château into a boutique wedding venue is a huge leap of faith for Sara. She and fiancé Gavin sink their life savings into the beautiful Château Bellevue – set under blue skies and surrounded by vineyards in the heart of Bordeaux.<br /><br />After months of hard work, the dream starts to become a reality – until Gavin walks out halfway through their first season. Overnight, Sara is left very much alone with the prospect of losing everything.<br /><br />With her own heart breaking, Sara has five weddings before the end of the season to turn the business around and rescue her dreams. With the help of the locals and a little French <i>courage</i>, <b>can she save Château Bellevue before the summer is over?</b><br /><br /><h2>What people are saying about <i>The French for Always</i></h2><br />‘This was set in the gorgeous French countryside which, itself, was another character in the novel, <b>I honestly felt like I was there drinking in the sunshine, the atmosphere and the wine!</b> The description in this book was just beautiful full on wonderful metaphorical language and adjectives that tasted wonderful in the mouth!<br /><br />Overall this novel would be <b>a lovely summer read</b>, you will feel the heat emanating off the page and so will definitely put you in the mood for barbecues and a glass of wine or two alfresco. This is a stand along novel, so if you haven't read anything from this author before, it would be a great introduction to her <b>lovely writing!</b>’ <b>4/5</b> <i>Fabulous Book Fiend</i><br /><br />‘<b>I fell in love with this novel</b> as soon as I had read the first few pages. I am a sucker for any story that in one way or another has to do with weddings, but I have to admit, I’m not a particular fan of France. Yet, the descriptions of Chateau Bellevue, the surroundings, the small village and its inhabitants... I loved it and <b>the whole atmosphere in the novel immediately made it feel like summer, even though it was raining where I was!</b> The main character, Sara, was easily likeable and I felt myself rooting for her and her wedding business, especially after her fiancé Gavin decides to leave her and she suddenly has to set up the business on her own. Luckily, Sara is surrounded by a great cast of supporting characters, including the trustworthy Karen and handsome and charming Thomas.<br /><br />The storyline, which revolves around Sara and her attempts to save Chateau Bellevue, was really enjoyable, especially because of the five weddings that are organised at the venue while the story enfolds. Each of the weddings featured a specific couple, all of them different from one another with their own background. <b>Fiona Valpy’s writing is great; well-paced, detailed, and captivating</b>, and I definitely look forward to reading more of her work in the future. ‘The French for Always’ is a wonderfully warm and thoroughly enjoyable read, and <b>definitely the book to pick up if you are looking for your first taste of summer!’ 9.5/10</b> <i>Spoonful of Happy Endings</i>

In 2003, software engineer David Miller left his job, family, and friends to fulfill a dream and hike the Appalachian Trail. <em>AWOL on the Appalachian Trail</em> is Miller's account of this thru-hike along the entire 2,172 miles from Georgia to Maine. On page after page, readers are treated to rich descriptions of the valleys and mountains, the isolation and reverie, the inspiration that fueled his quest, and the life-changing moments that can only be experienced when dreams are pursued. While this book abounds with introspection and perseverance, it also provides useful passages about safety and proper gear, with a view into a professional hiker's preparations and tenacity. This is not merely a travel guide, but a beautifully written and highly personal view into one man's adventure and what it means to make a lifelong vision come true.

Can Two Americans Really Become French?<br /><br />Val and Keith turned their lives upside down when they quit their jobs to begin a part-time life in Provence. But they wondered: Can we fit in? And maybe become French ourselves?<br /><br />Follow their adventures as they slowly unlock the mysteries of France…<br />- Is it true that French people are like coconuts? <br />- Can you learn to argue like a French person? <br />- What books have changed French lives? <br />- Most important of all, how do you keep your soup from exploding?<br /><br />There’s more to becoming French than just learning the language. If you want the inside scoop on la belle France, you won’t want to miss this delightful book!<br /><br /><br />From the Book<br /><br />Vive La France!<br />The first clue that this was not going to be a simple apéritif was when we walked into the house and saw that it was full of people. I think word had gotten out that there were Americans coming over who sort of spoke French and everyone wanted to see this oddity, kind of like a three-headed cat. Or maybe they’d been watching old American movies and thought we would show up with cowboy hats and six shooters and do tricks with our lassoes.<br /><br />Oops<br />Every driver was being pulled over and told to blow into a breathalyzer, which meant Val because she was the one driving. “I’m nervous,” she said, “because I’m feeling the wine a little bit. Here, check my hand!” It was cold and clammy. “What if they put me in handcuffs and haul me off to jail? Will you know how to bail me out?” I didn’t think I would but this was definitely not the time to point that out. <br /><br />Bulls Go For A Swim<br />“The bull has escaped!” Val and I looked up to see a thousand pounds of anger barreling down the street right at us. We ran to safety as the bull thundered past, followed by French cowboys on horseback. <br /><br />It’s All About The Tongue<br />The first time we had a class with Geneviève, she pulled a book off a shelf and asked us to each read a few paragraphs to test our pronunciation. I knew we were in trouble as soon as Val started. As she spoke, Geneviève began jotting notes on a pad of paper. After a few sentences she started grinning. Then she started giggling. When it was my turn she put down her pen and started laughing out loud and wiping her eyes. <br /><br />Out of Gas<br />Between guests and food and exercise and reading and living a French life, our days are full. And then once in a while something unexpected comes along that takes even more time. Like the day the country ran out of gasoline.<br />
