I'm thrilled to be one of the stops on the blog blitz for The French Escape by Suzie Tullett and sharing my review today. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
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.
As summer is well and truly on its way out I was looking for a story that would whisk me away and The French Escape was exactly what I was looking for!
The story moves at a lovely pace and was a delight to read as secrets come to light along the way to keep things interesting. I enjoyed seeing Flick begin to heal after a very turbulent time back home and then seeing her connection with Nate begin to grow was extra special.
There are plenty of quirky and loveable characters along with a setting that will leave you dreaming of your own French escape! I loved the friendships that were formed and of course a wonderful hint of romance too. With new beginnings a big theme I was hoping for a happy ever after for the characters.
The French Escape is a wonderful easy going and light hearted story with a beautiful charm that will leave you smiling!
