The French Escape: Book review 

Book blurb

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 of 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? 

The French Escape is a heart-warming, happy ever after, love story. Follow Flick and Nate’s laugh out loud and emotional journey as they negotiate matters of the heart and learn to trust again.  

My review

What better book to take on my recent trip to Paris, as you can see from this Book Selfie.

This is a delish read. From the gorgeous cover, probably the prettiest I’ve seen this year, to the stylish writing that encompasses all things French. 

Flick has had a terrible year following the death of her father and desertion by her husband just after the wedding. When her mother, Brenda, suggests a stay in a Brittany Chateau she’s not all that impressed. She’s even more confused when she turns up to find…. well you’ll have to read that part for yourself. There’s Nate, around every corner. Just what is he doing living in a cottage on the estate? There’s a mystery here, one she’s determined to solve. 

This is beautifully written tribute to all things French. The writing is well-crafted with lots of humorous moments. There’s lots going on and plenty of vignettes of French village life to enthral and bewitch. A writer to watch…
