The Shuttered Room by Christine Purkis

Life is sweet for seventeen-year-old Alison. A long, hot summer nannying in the South of France is bound to brush-up her French, top-up her tan and - who knows? - maybe even pep-up her love life too! But when Alison arrives in the sleepy village of St Secrets her dreams come crashing down around her...it's just so dull! And then she discovers the secret diary, and Alison finds herself swept away with its emotional, passionate and intriguing revelations...
