Who needs love when you can eat cheese?
Heartbroken and on the cusp of turning 30, Ella decides to pack her bags and move to Paris, somewhere she had visited when she was a different, more adventurous person.
It’s on the streets of beautiful, romantic City of Light that she finds her heart’s true desire: cheese. For Ella, her local fromagerie becomes a safe haven and she finds herself being drawn back there day after day.
But in a strange city, being friendless and not able to speak the language, has she bitten off more than she can chew?

A Winter Retreat at The Paris Cheese Shop is the first installment in a 4 part series and what a truly wonderful little read it was! Ella did exactly what I would do if I found myself in that situation. I would genuinely leave the UK and find work elsewhere. I have already lived in a few places, but I think I would have to do this. I loved the descriptions of everything and just reading Victoria’s descriptions of food made my mouth water!
I felt like I was right there with Ella throughout her whole ordeal and I couldn’t wait to join her throughout the rest of her journey, so I’ve already pre-ordered the other 3 installments. I will post links to them below.
I’ve given The Paris Cheese Shop a 4/5 rating. I cannot wait for the next installments. Victoria Brownlee has written a truly wonderful little book. I’d certainly recommend this book.
