A French Affair by Jennifer Bohnet


What will be will be...

Belinda Marshall’s idyllic teenage life in Brittany, France, fell apart when her parents dramatically separated and her mother took her back to England.

Fast forward thirty-five years when Belinda’s world is once again turned upside down.

It’s the week before Christmas and Belinda's employer 'surprises’ her by asking for her help to rejuvenate their latest investment, a run-down campsite in Brittany.

Memories and anxieties that had lain dormant for years suddenly begin to resurface.

As secrets from a lost life threaten to overwhelm her, there is a realisation that maybe she wasn’t told the whole truth by her mother all those years ago. Can Belinda reconcile her emotions and find happiness once more in the place she so loved and called home?

I always enjoy a Jennifer Bohnet book and this one didn't disappoint. It was lovely seeing the French countryside through the author's eyes and although I have added Brittany to the list of places I want to visit, I feel as though I have already been there, as the descriptions were so vivid.

I loved the main character, Belinda, and I also appreciated that she was a more mature lady. The plot was interesting and the love interest was perfect. All in all, a pure escapism read.
