I do like this series, but would like more story as I do at times feel that some plots stop abruptly. Indeed the book itself does. I do understand the author not wanting to overwhelm beginners, but I feel it's a real shame that that the plots were not as fully realised as they could've been not only for the reader's satisfaction, but also to show off her writing talents, which I think are not really shown off sometimes. I hope there will be longer books to come and in the meantime I have downloaded 2 of the La maison hantée trilogy.

an easy to read french chick lit story, which is a great way to get started on reading french novels. Handily it also has a full translation at the back if you are stuck on a few words, but actually very easily understandable and quite funny, amusing little read.

A Mills & Boon type story line, as the title suggests but quite engaging and suitable for A level students as a light read. It was however, for me at least, marred by numerous glaring errors in punctuation, syntax and agreement (e.g. Après le dîner,,; de toute façons; une endroit différent; elle pensais etc.) I cannot see any excuse for not proof reading a document adequately prior to publication, especially one designed for non-native speakers of French. For that reason I am reluctant to give it more than 3 stars.
