My Grape Wedding takes fans of Laura Bradbury’s ‘Grape’ series – described by readers as a love child between Peter Mayle’s “A Year in Provence” and Cheryl Strayed’s “Wild” – back to the enchanting world of Burgundy five years after Franck and Laura meet on a student exchange. After a spontaneous proposal in Kathmandu, the bride-to-be struggles with balancing the academic demands of an Oxford law student in between lessons on how to be a proper Catholic and fittings with the Queen of England’s corset maker.
Back in Burgundy, Laura’s anxiety grows as wedding plans fall apart. As guests arrive, the rain clouds move in, family wine tastings turn into tournaments of survival of the fittest, and a bombshell from the priest leaves the couple looking for divine intervention. Laura believes she and Franck belong together, but how will they survive this tumultuous journey to the altar?
