The Lost Carousel of Provence by Juliet Blackwell

Cady takes pictures of carousels,  She's got a contract to do a picture book of them.  When she finds a burned and broken one, she suggests a book on the condition of it and the restoration.  They say they'll think about it.  Now if the old grouch will let her do it, she'll have it made...

Berkley and NetGalley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today.

Being in Paris is a new experience for her and she finds she likes it.  She also likes the man she meets but they have different agendas.  He will inherit the chateau she's staying at and he intends to sell it.  She thinks he should keep it and rehab it over time.  The old man living there just wants to be left alone.  She's allowed to stay because she walks his dog and cooks his meals.  She still gets thrown out twice since he has a bad temper and was crossed in the past.

You read about the past as well as the present.  I found that interesting.  I also sympathized with the characters.

Will Cady go home with her dream unfulfilled?  Or will the old man let her stay again?  Read it and see.
