13 posts | 10 read | 22 to read
Set in the 1950s against the backdrop of Grace Kelly's whirlwind romance and glamourous wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco, New York Times bestselling author Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb take the reader on an evocative sun-drenched journey along the Cte d'Azur in this page-turning novel of passion, fate, and second-chances.Movie stars and paparazzi flock to Cannes for the glamorous film festival, but Grace Kelly, the biggest star of all, wants only to escape from the flash-bulbs. When struggling perfumer Sophie Duval shelters Miss Kelly in her boutique, fending off a persistent British press photographer, James Henderson, a bond is forged between the two women and sets in motion a chain of events that stretches across thirty years of friendship, love, and tragedy.James Henderson cannot forget his brief encounter with Sophie Duval. Despite his guilt at being away from his daughter, he takes an assignment to cover the wedding of the century, sailing with Grace Kelly's wedding party on the SS Constitution from New York. In Monaco, as wedding fever soars and passions and tempers escalate, James and Sophie--like Princess Grace--must ultimately decide what they are prepared to give up for love.

I remember when Princess Grace died and the sadness that it brought to everyone that knew her as a star and princess. This book looks at the story of a perfumer and a photographer who meet because of the American girl who became a princess. Love the speech excerpt from Jimmy Stewart at the end of the book. Note: read every page when this story ends. Princess Grace, the first American princess.

Royal Wedding and romance is the fragrance of this amazing historical fiction retelling of the wedding of Grace Kelly to Prince Rainer of Monaco. Intertwined in the real-life happenings is the story of Sophie Duval, perfumer, who is working hard to maintain the family business. Also appearing on the scene is James Henderson, struggling photographer and single Dad trying to make it to the top by following around the future Princess.

A beautiful fictionalized account of Grace Kelly's wedding set in the stunning locations of Cannes and Monaco. The rich scent of perfume held the storyline. A story of unlikely friends, love that spanned decades, and perseverance. Loved it from beginning till the end!

Not one of mine, but looks good!

I‘ve been to Monaco a few times, but not seen much of it, as it‘s always been for motor racing so the whole town is covered in grandstands!

I adored this novel from the scenery to the characters and the beautiful fragrances! Loved how it was written by two authors but seamless. Sophie Duval is a marvelous character and love Jim! Simply put, this novel made me happy.

Dreamcast:
James/Jim - Christian Bale
Sophie- zooey deschanel
Grace Kelly- Chloë Grace Moretz

I always forget to take pictures at conferences, and the ones I do take aren't ideal, but it was so great to see Heather Webb and Hazel Gaynor when we were all at #HNS2019! Can't wait for their new book.

MEET ME IN MONACO smells as delightful as the Duval parfumerie in Cannes. You can just smell the scents of jasmine, violets, lavender and tuberose wafting from the shop‘s beautiful glass bottles, on the streets of Cannes and from the fields of Grasse, where Sophie‘s family has grown their flowers for generations. I couldn‘t stop myself from inhaling the pages.. https://www.bluestockingreviews.com/blog/meet-me-in-monaco

If you are looking for a light, romantic summer read, this comes out in July. Two people meet due to an encounter with Grace Kelly during her visit to Cannes for the film festival, which is also when she meets her husband Prince Rainier.

I read it in a day and really enjoyed it, especially the slightly unconventional ending. I also love the gorgeous cover.

ReadingisMyPassion I loved this book. I had a very successful giveaway on my page just before it released. The prize was this book and a coffee table type book of Princess Grace's Hollywood years. 3mo
