The confectioner's tale by Laura Madeleine( Book )

23 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the famous Patisserie Clermont, a chance encounter with the owner's daughter has given one young man a glimpse into a life he never knew existed: of sweet cream and melted chocolate, golden caramel and powdered sugar, of pastry light as air. But it is not just the art of confectionery that holds him captive, and soon a forbidden love affair begins. Almost eighty years later, an academic discovers a hidden photograph of her grandfather as a young man with two people she has never seen before. Scrawled on the back of the picture are the words "Forgive me." Unable to resist the mystery behind it, she begins to unravel the story of two star-crossed lovers and one irrevocable betrayal."--

"It is 1919, and the end of the war has not brought peace for Emeline Vane. Lost in grief, she is suddenly alone at the heart of a depleted family.

Taken in by caf ̌owner Maman and her twenty-year-old son, Emeline discovers a world completely new to her: of oranges, olives and wild herbs, the raw, rich tastes of the land. But soon secrets from home begin blowing in on the sea waves. Fifty years later, Bill Perch, a young solicitor on his first case, finds Emeline's diary, and begins to trace an anguished story of betrayal and love that will send him on a journey to discover the truth. What really happened to Emeline all those years ago?"--Dust jacket flap
Secrets Between Us by Laura Madeleine( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"High in the mountains in the South of France, eighteen-year-old Ceci Corvin believes her world is safe. She is wrong. In 1943, no one is safe. When a young couple moves into the flat above her parents' bakery, Ceci tries hard to carry on as normal, despite their obvious desperation and the red `J' stamped across their papers. But there is no such thing as normal now. It only takes a spark to awaken something inside of Ceci and falling in love with the wrong person can have serious consequences. Scandal, it would seem, can be more dangerous to a young woman than war. Fifty years later, Annie is looking for her long-lost grandmother. Armed with nothing more than a sheaf of papers, she travels from England to Paris in pursuit of the truth. But as she traces her grandmother’s story, Annie uncovers something she wasn’t expecting, something that changes everything she knew about her family – and everything she thought she knew about herself." -- Provided by publisher
