A Jennifer Bohnet novel is always guaranteed to provide me with a holiday without leaving the house, new friends and cosy warm feeling all over. Summer at the Chateau gave me all of this and I thoroughly enjoyed reading every word of it.
Set in beautiful Brittany, I loved how some of the smaller characters are from A French Affair. It was like seeing old friends again and returning to a familiar place. The novel is stand alone though and there’s no need to have read A French Affair before. The setting is so idyllic and picturesque and although I have never been, I felt as though I have when reading.
Jennifer Bohnet always goes beyond a simple romance story, and this story is no different. She has woven layers of friendship, family, dilemmas and dramas throughout the story making it thought provoking and difficult to put down.
Pixie has a lot to deal with in such a short space of time and after the death of her husband and other revelations, she has a lot of soul searching to do in order to grieve and move on with her life. Her journey and how she navigates everything that is thrown her way makes for a really interesting plot and I was with her all the way. The drama is emotional but gentle and doesn’t detract from the cosy and heart-warming vibe of the overall story telling.
Lovable characters, a stunning setting and a plot with gentle tension and drama makes this great escapism and a wonderful book.
