Written by Suzie Tullett
It’s fair to say that Flick has had a terrible year. Her beloved father died, she had the wedding of her dreams and only hours after the ceremony her husband ran out on her.
Brenda, fed up with her daughter living like a hermit, decides to drag Flick off to France to stay in a chateau. What could be better than an idyllic escape?
But when they arrive Flick discovers the chateau is all but abandoned.
The only upside of her French escape is the handsome and mysterious neighbour, Nate.
Nate loves his life living in the cottage on the grounds of the abandoned chateau but that is about to be put in jeopardy…
Can Nate and Flick ever learn to come to terms with the past and find love again?
Bright, Fun .. A Feel-Good Read!
A charming read .. if you ever dream of upping sticks and relocating to France, this novel will have you straight online to investigate properties for sale!
Since the death of her father followed by her new husband abandoning her only a few hours into their marriage, Flick has – understandably – become something of a recluse. Despairing of ever getting her out of the shell she has retreated into, her mother Brenda arranges a holiday in France for them both. Only when they get there, it’s not quite the luxurious accommodation that Flick was hoping for! When a friendly local dog introduces itself to Flick, she in turn does the same to it’s owner, only he’s a bit taciturn and doesn’t even offer his name in return.
This is a bright, fun story in a picturesque setting with a range of characters in a small but friendly community. With plenty going on to absorb and enjoy, this is a quick read and a very pleasurable one. With lots of little details about life in France, it certainly makes life there sound very appealing! It’s a lovely story with a few ups and downs and guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face. Definitely a feel-good read!
