LoveReading Expert Review of House of Joy

A real joy to read , not only is the story great with funny interesting characters but you can find out quite a lot about the champagne making process! Clementine is feeling like life has passed her by and having to take over the House of Peine, the once renowned champagne house which her recently dead father has run in to the ground is not something she is relishing, especially when her two long lost sisters turn up to claim their rights to the family business. Put the champagne on ice and enjoy.


House of Joy Synopsis

Bubbly, rich, delicate and delightful, the champagne of the famous House of Peine is everything that Clementine Peine is not. She lost her sparkle, along with the love of her life, many years before. Her papa spent more time at the local bar than tending to the vines, but now that he is gone the future looks bleak. Then her sister Mathilde returns to the crumbling family Chateau, determined to poison the future in the same way that she poisoned the past.

Out of the blue, a third sister appears – the delightful but equally unwelcome young Sophie – claiming their surname, and awakening ancient family rivalries, long-ago love affairs and forgotten scandals.

Can the House of Peine ever become a House of Joy?
