Review

This is one of them books that i am not sure how it came into my life, i just found it on my kindle and
i wanted to read it because it sounded right up my street. I love anything based in quaint little villages, seaside towns, france, italy - i just like to indulge in lifestyle dreaming, and this seemed the perfect way & at one point i wanted to be an event planner...so all that aside, lets discuss the book itself. So we meet Samantha Hunter as she arrives in France for an event and to spend some time with her sister. Firstly, the description in this book is wonderful, you get a real feel for the place Samantha visits as well the people she meets along the way. Samantha is essentially a strong independent women, on the surface she came across hard faced and to begin with i admit i wasnt too keen on her as a character but as we learn more, we see she has feelings underneath her exterior. When her sister goes missing, all that hard exterior busniess women and we are really introduced to the true Samantha, with the help of a few crazy friends, and a sexy french puppeter, we travel all over on a hunt for a beloved sister. I really felt the author wrote the adventure well, and i found myself routing for all the characters to get there own happy ending. We meet some nasty characters as well, which are written really well that i felt uncomforatble when they popped up every now and then. In  conclusion, this is a nice, easy light read that passed a few hours and i felt all the better having read it. Its basically a good dose of chick lit with a sexy french man thrown in for good measure.

Rating; a good old 7/10
