We meet up with CC again in The French House. CC no longer loves her job in the city, her life is hectic and it just is not what she wants any more. When her boyfriend Victor decides to move to the South of France in the countryside, CC jumps at the chance for a new life! Dreaming of sunshine and relaxation, CC is brought back down to earth with a thump when she gets there - what should be a beautiful house in the countryside is actually a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere that is falling apart and seems to be lacking heating, and more importantly, some of the roof! To make things worse, their neighbour just happens to be Victor's aunt, Distra. Can CC stick it out, and can she make the French House a home?
I really enjoyed The French House, I had hoped I would as I liked the first book, and I wasn't disappointed by the sequel! I started it on a morning and had finished the last page by the afternoon as I whizzed through it! I fell easily back into the life of CC, and as I knew her and a few other characters from before it was like meeting up with friends that you haven't seen in a long time - enjoyable, engrossing and exciting.
I was gripped by the story - I was hanging on to every word that Nick Alexander wrote, and I desperately wanted to know how CC and the others would get on in the book. Would CC come to love the French house? Would she make it into a home? Would she be happy there with Victor?
I loved being reunited with the characters. I had missed CC so I was thrilled to see her back in this novel! I was constantly cheering her on and I enjoyed the time I spent with her.Read more ›
Ive never read such miserable reviews either! I found the characters totally believable, (lacking in backstory if Im honest), but especially the issue of trust struck a chord. I just found it a delighful read and well-written. I will certainly buy more from this author!
