The gorgeously summery new book from Sue Moorcroft, coming May 2022 – pre-order now!

Sparkling sun, strolls in the gorgeous French countryside, that first sip of cool, crisp wine – Summer is Kat’s favourite season. And this year should be no exception…

As soon as Kat Jenson set foot in the idyllic French village of Kirchhoffen, she knew she’d found her home. Now she has a dreamy boyfriend, a delightful dog and the perfect job managing a bustling book café in the vibrant Parc Lemmel.

But when she learns her boyfriend isn’t all he seems, it’s the start of a difficult summer for Kat. Vindictive troublemakers, work woes and family heartache follow, and the clear blue sky that was her life suddenly seems full of clouds.

Then she gets to know the mysterious Noah, and her sun begins to shine brighter than ever. But Noah has problems of his own – ones that could scupper their new-found happiness. Together, can they overcome their many obstacles, and find love again?

First of all, I want to give an extra star for the front cover! The yellow colored background with the picture gave a vibrant attraction.

Kat Jenson seems to have it all–a perfect boyfriend, a delightful dog named Angelique and a perfect job at a book cafe in the vibrant Park Lemmel. But then her life takes a turn when she finds out that her so called “perfect” boyfriend isn’t what he seemed to be–he is already married! Now Kat thinks her life is shattered but then she meets mysterious Noah, who seem to be having family problems as well–his wife remarried who seemed to be taking control of Noah’s own daughter Clemence. Now Kat and Noah must overcome their family obstacles and eventually, their friendship soon turns to romance as they help each other out.

I am very skeptical about romance books but this book actually grew into me. I really like the author’s style of writing which was engaging and as a reader who had never been to France, I felt like I was in France, in this quaint small town with all those descriptions. I do like how the author labeled out Kat’s relationship with her own father and how she helps Noah to meet his daughter Clemence. I simply couldn’t put this book down as I actually grew into liking Kat and Noah’s relationship. Overall, a heartwarming romance novel that will make the reader feel like they are in France and in love.

If you like a story set in small quaint vibrant French town and want to feel like you are in France, then this book is one for you. Worth five stars!

Many thanks to the Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
