When Samantha Brick's life started to unravel - her company in liquidation, homeless, penniless and friendless, and on max-strength anti-depressants - it seemed that everything was going wrong.
But a chance week away in France led to the most unexpected of all turn-arounds: a whirlwind romance with gun-toting, stubborn and ever-so-macho Pascal.
It wasn't until she moved in to his cottage in the beautiful Lot region in south-west France that she realised how shamefully ill-equipped she was for the country life.
Like Cinderella in reverse, Samantha had to learn to cook, clean, chop wood and keep house, as well as discovering how to be a step-mum to Pascal's know-it-all ten-year-old son, finding love and happiness along the way.
