4.0 out of 5 stars Happy Every After In France?, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Head Over Heels in France: Falling in Love in the Lot (Kindle Edition)
I had no idea while reading this that it was autobiographical as suggested in some other reviews. It seems quite extraordinary that someone could turn their life completely around and upside down like that. However despite all the ups and downs in the relationship between Pascal and Sam it does seem like she is happy (at the moment at least) and that's the most important thing.

While reading the book I did feel that the whole relationship was going to fall apart and that it wouldn't work like so many other people were probably thinking. However what I didn't bank on was the compromises that Sam was willing to make and how determined she was to make things work. If I am honest I did wonder at times how anyone could stand to be with the stubborn and overbearing Pascal and lead such a mundane life from the glamourous one she had previously even if the french scenery was stunning in LOT. She really must have been head over heels because that's the only reason anyone would stay. In addition to that she had other hurdles to contend with like a language barrier as she couldn't speak French, being a very poor cook, a teenage stepson who likes firecrackers, jealousy from Miriam and acceptance from the locals, local grapevine etc. I did wonder if she was just burying her head in the sand and running away from all her previous troubles. I think a follow on book for this story would be a good idea because I don't think it will be all plain sailing from this point on.

The novel itself is well written with plenty of detail. A good debut novel.
