I am so sorry to say this but this is another of Katie Fforde's stinkers. Some of her books sweep you along on a tide of romance and humour, but this isn't one of them. I don't know what it is about the more recent books by KF but it is seemingly impossible to connect to the characters. Their behaviour seems so unlikely and lacking in reality, and they all seem quite cold and remote. There were some lovely set-ups in this book but they came to nothing (eg the Christmas event) and I was left feeling completely bewildered by what drew the two leads together in the first place. Some of the plotting was silly but that can be forgiven if there is a warm and believable central romance to focus on. I wish KF's editors would just work a bit harder to get the jewel of a book that you feel this could be. Disappointing.

For those who like a simple romantic story where the guy and the gal see each other and proceed inexorably towards marriage and happy ever after, this is okay. For those who know Katie Fforde of old, it is not.

Katie Fforde's great strength in her early books was that she wrote a credible story with believable characters and several possible outcomes. She was also funny. I was worried by her last book, Recipe for Love, which despite some fine comic set pieces, was over reliant on a well known TV programme for its plot and was a bit lazy in its characterization. I hoped it was a blip and that she would soon be back on form again.

** Spoiler Alert **

Sadly not. The heroine and the hero are set up from the word go. The outcome is inevitable - you just have to read the requisite number of pages to arrive, if you can be bothered to give up the time. There are no real deviations on the course, although a couple of very weak plot devices are set up to con you into thinking that the real story might be about to start. Only three characters are fleshed out, Gina, Sally and Matthew, but when it suits, their personalities will flip from loving and reasonable to coldly ambitious (Sally) or passionately in love to cold and patronising and vice a versa (Matthew). There are three potential villains, her ex, his ex and a potential business rival, none of whom behave very convincingly. In fact, I can see no reason at all for including her ex as he was largely unused.

By Jo D'Arcy TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Feb. 2013
Format: Hardcover
Sisters, Gina and Sally inherit a stall from their Aunt Rainey in The French House, an antiques centre in the village in the country. There is nothing remotely odd about this but their aunt leaves them with some conditions to their inheritance.

Included in all this intrigue from beyond the grave, is Matthew the rather grumpy, yet attractive owner who had a great bond with their aunt and finds their presence rather overwhelming. Sally arrives with many creative ideas and can see a very different sort of potential in all these antiques which might not necessarily fit in with Matthew's antique view. Gina is in PR and knows how to push herself and the product she is selling forward, she can see The French House has a lot to offer the community and becomes deeply involved in it. But is she also unwittingly selling herself as well and becoming deeply involved with Matthew.

Gina is not sure if romance was part of the inheritance that her aunt left her. She finds herself battling not just bringing the antiques centre or in particular Matthew into the modern world way of involving everyone in antiques but dealing with her growing feelings. Can she manage it all and ensure that her future is in safe hands?

This is the latest novel from the wonderful writer Katie Fforde and this transports you away to another world, an antique one. I could imagine this centre with all the wonderful stalls in it, the characters of those with the antiques they sell, mentioned in reference to the main characters in this book, but actually follow up books could quite easily be made of some of them I am sure. I sensed a place that would be cold and damp, with people stood hugging cups of tea with fingerless gloves, trying to keep warm, waiting to see what the next customer would bring or want.

If i could give this book minus one I would. I cannot believe it is written by Katie Fforde whose books I normally love. This one - well I felt it was poorly written and had it been a paper copy it would have gone straight in the charity box.

A french Affair- displaying the simply beautiful illustrative cover that makes this book recognizable as a Katie Fforde novel.
The main character is lovable and relate-able, you slowly but surely invest in her as a person and feel all her emotions.
Delightfully engaging and enjoyable, Katie Fforde's novels just get better and better, not many books give you the butterflies in the stomach feeling but this one does on more than one occasion. Romance at its best!

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a Katie Fforde lover and to anyone who loves a good romance novel.
