Welcome!! This is our stop on this Blog Blitz Tour for THE FRENCH ESCAPE by Suzie Tullett.
I would firstly like to say a rather big thank you to the amazing Sarah Hardy, Bombshell Books and Suzie Tullett who gifted me an early copy of THE FRENCH ESCAPE. I am forever grateful and promise that the review below is 100% honest and of my own views.
To kick off, we have the “blurb” 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.
So, you want to know what I think?
This was such a lovely sweet story. I found myself constantly smiling whilst reading this.
Flick and her mum go on holiday to France to escape Flick’s sham of a marriage but it turns out the chateau they run to now belongs to Flick and she has to decide sell it and return home or make it her new home.
I instantly liked Flick. Despite being maybe a little naïve, she seems to think practically and seems honest and genuine. From the moment she meets Nate you can see there is a connection and what the outcome will be but there was also a constant underlying of secrets that needed to be released and throughout the story little snippets are discovered until eventually the whole secret is exposed.
I found myself struggling to put this down and lucky for me it is a quite short for a novel and I finished in just 2 days. Saying that short does not take anything away from this story, it has everything you could possibly need, princess castles, boy and girl romance as well as a devious mum. I closed the book wanting to go and spend a week or more in Flick’s chateau.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and would recommend someone just wanting a quick, light hearted book to lose themselves in for a few hours.
