WOW wow wow!! Oh my goodness this book is so wonderful I read it in 48hrs. I loved the main character Edith and how she went to France to get back her appetite for life. The bakery is such a magical and enchanting place. I loved the romance in the story and I am sad the book has ended. A lovely and warming tale!

Not sure why I couldn't get into this - the writing style is OK and the storyline is interesting enough. Maybe it's because it's set in France and as I spend quite a lot of time there, I found that there are details in the narrative that just don't ring true - it irked so much that I gave up after chapter 2

‘Final call for passenger Edith Lane travelling to Paris on flight E1754 please proceed to gate 9 immediately, as the gate is now closing, thank you.’

The Mysterious Bakery on Rue de Paris is a book written by Irish writer Evie Gaughan.

Published last year, it is a book I have been looking forward to reading.

A little escapism to a world where good things happen, I felt now was a good time to sit down, have a coffee and a croissant and let myself relax into a world of mysticism & joie de vivre.

Please join me…

Edith Lane makes a decision that will change the course of her life.

One day, sitting at the local bus stop, whilst offering a mint to a little girl ‘with all the vintage charm of a fifties housewife,’ Edith decides to pack her bags and start a new life for herself.

Grieving for her mother who passed away the previous year, Edith makes the very brave decision to leave her father and all that is familiar to her, to take up a position managing a small bakery in Paris.

On arrival in Paris, Edith soon realises that she may have been a little impetuous in her move as all is not as she had imagined.

Edith finds herself working for the very elusive and stern Madame Moreau.

M.Moreau is the owner of ‘La Boulangerie et Patisserie de Compiegne’, selling all the produce expected of a French bakery. Edith is in awe of the breads, the pastries and the beautiful smells of the shop.

Part of her job package includes accommodation within the premises and Edith begins to question where all the produce comes from. Under strict instruction from M Moreau to remain out of the kitchen, Edith begins to suspect all is not as it seems.

I was instantly drawn to this novel purely from three words in the title; mysterious, bakery and Paris. Three words that just seem to fit together and let me to read a lovely story.

Edith was an instantly likable character. Thinking that her life has got stuck in a bit of a rut, she makes the scary decision of applying for a job at a bakery in Paris. It's a big step for her and takes her completely out of her comfort zone. Things don't start off right either when she thinks she's going to be working in Paris when actually she is working in the town of Compiègne, an hour's train ride from Paris. She then also has an unfriendly boss to contend with, Madame Moreau. Being back in Ireland is starting to look more appealing! And then there is the mystery surrounding the bakery, why won't Madame Moreau let her into the basement where all the food is baked?

I really enjoyed the mystery part of this story. I felt that something magical was afoot and throughout the whole book it had that sense of enchantment and unusual goings on.

This had some great secondary characters too like Nicole who befriends Edith and Manu, who works closely with Madame Moreau.

The setting of Compiègne, despite being set in the winter months really sounded idyllic. I really felt transported to France and wanted to be there with Edith.

My only tiny criticism is that I would have liked more build up and story line surrounding the mystery. I felt that we found out too quickly and not as much was made of it as it could have been. However that is just my opinion.

This was a really heartwarming, lovely story that was so easy to get lost in.

There are too many mistakes, both in the French and the English spelling and grammar, for it to be an enjoyable read!! Why could these errors not have been corrected before the book was published?

The Irish Edith is looking for change in her life. She applies for a job in a bakery in France to escape grief an suffering at home. She can see herself working in the busy and wonderful centre of Paris. When she arrives in the city of love she discovers that the bakery is in Compiègne instead. She decides to give it a try though and soon she makes friends in the small town. The bakery isn't just a bakery, it has a history. Slowly the heartbroken and shy Edith starts to discover other sides of her personality. Will she be able to find herself in France?

The Mysterious Bakery On Rue De Paris is a must read for anyone who loves France. Evie Gaughan has captured that atmosphere very well. I could almost taste the delicious croissants and the fresh and crisp pain au levain. Edith is shy and withdrawn at first, but being in France changes that. Of course there's a wonderful Frenchman who livens up the story. While reading this book I had to suppress the urge to visit Compiègne immediately. I could clearly see the beautiful and charming French cobblestone streets with the timber houses, they were brought to life so perfectly. The spark of magical realism gives this novel some extra charm. The Mysterious Bakery On Rue De Paris is such a sweet and wonderful story, I liked it a lot!
