A French Affair- Six Sentence Bookish Thoughts #91

cover image courtesy of www.katiefforde.com

What A French Affair is about:
Gina and Sally Makepiece have inherited a stall in the French House - an antiques centre nestled in the heart of the English countryside. Gina is determined to drag the French House and its grumpy owner into the twenty-first century. Bearing all the attributes of a modern-day Mr Rochester, Matthew Ballinger is less than happy with the whirlwind that has arrived on his doorstep. The last thing either of them want is to fall in love.

I found A French Affair to be a wonderful way to escape the world for a few hours. I absolutely fell in love with the whole idea of finding "smalls" and antiquing for a living. I love flea markets and the thrill of the find. Pair that with an idyllic setting, a sister who is your best friend, and a grumpy, but oh so adorable leading man, and I say that is a recipe for fun reading!

Recommend? If you love British Chick Lit then yes, you should put this one on your list. I liked Katie's book and will make sure to add her titles to my ever-growing love affair with all things British!!!
