This delightful book was like taking a little mini break over to Brittany in France without the need to leave my armchair.
I think armchair travel fiction should become a new genre and I think Jennifer Bohnet would be up amongst the bestsellers as she knows how to bring her settings and characters to life.
Here’s the blurb:
What will be will be…
Belinda Marshall’s idyllic teenage life in Brittany, France, fell apart when her parents dramatically separated and her mother took her back to England.
Fast forward thirty-five years when Belinda’s world is once again turned upside down.
It’s the week before Christmas and Belinda’s employer ‘surprises’ her by asking for her help to rejuvenate their latest investment, a run-down campsite in Brittany.
Memories and anxieties that had lain dormant for years suddenly begin to resurface.
As secrets from a lost life threaten to overwhelm her, there is a realisation that maybe she wasn’t told the whole truth by her mother all those years ago.
Can Belinda reconcile her emotions and find happiness once more in the place she so loved and called home?
Here’s my review:
A delightful read!
I’m new to reading this author’s books so this was an experience.
The cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous.
The standout for me was the setting and the detail the author went into in order to create it in the minds of her readers. A really strong sense of location and setting.
I loved the journey of self discovery Belinda went on. She was a great character and I too became caught up in all the ghosts from her past.
The theme of friendship was weaved throughout and I thought Fern was great fun.
The story was good with lots of sub plots and I was glued to my kindle.
I will definitely read this author again.
