What do you do if you find a bra in your husband's luggage that isn't yours? Or even his! This is the dilemma facing mother-of-three Sophie Reed, shortly after she moves to France with her family to start a new life.
As they are unpacking her husband admits to having an affair with a French woman called Cecile.
Sophie thinks about throwing him out with the bra. But then what? Should she move back to England? Her inner French woman tells her otherwise. She is getting to know her enigmatic, aristocratic neighbour. And then there is her old flame, the breathtakingly sexy, and now famous, Johnny Fray...French women think nothing of having several lovers, but is that the answer for an inexperienced English girl who has been married for ten years?
