I'm thrilled to be one of the stops on the blog tour for the wonderful Dreaming of St Tropez by T.A. Williams and I will be sharing my review. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
Title: Dreaming of St Tropez
Author Name: T.A. Williams
Genre: Women’s Fiction, Romance
Release Date: 7th May 2018
The perfect summer escape on the French Riviera. Sun, sea and secrets…
After a disagreement with a billionaire, architect Jess Milton is ‘let go’ from her job. However fortune intervenes – an elderly client asks Jess to dog-sit overweight, but loveable dog Brutus in St. Tropez.
Fed up with the mega-rich, Jess is reluctant to visit the playground of billionaires, but an all-expenses-paid trip and the promise of sunshine seals the deal.
Little does Jess know how much time she’ll be spending with the family living in St. Tropez. The sullen, but very good-looking David and his millionaire father are both welcoming but guarded, haunted by their pasts…
Can Jess bring some sunshine back into their lives – and, just maybe, find love in the process?
A heart-warming, funny and emotional journey for fans of Holly Martin, Tilly Tennant and Jenny Oliver.
You know that feeling when you just want to crawl inside a book because you are enjoying it so much. Well that was how I was while reading Dreaming of St. Tropez. T.A. Williams has done it once again and created a beautiful story that well and truly whisked me away. His writing style has such a warm and inviting feel that instantly transports you with all the gorgeous descriptions.
This book has a lovely balance of fun and deeper moments that created a lovely feel good story that is absolutely perfect for summer. Jess and Hope had a lovely friendship and it was great to see them experience all the delights of St. Tropez. There is romance, friendships and a beautiful setting along with a very special mention going to the adorable Labrador Brutus as he really played a fabulous part in the story. He was playful, fun and just that little bit mischievous making the story all the more fun for him being a part of it. I have to admit that I want my very own Brutus, I loved him!
I was smiling throughout as Jess and Hope went on their adventure in this charming and uplifting story. I'm already looking forward to the next book by T.A. Williams!
Five stars from me!
