About the Book:

Every end has a new beginning…
All NEW from bestselling author Jennifer Bohnet.

Heartbroken and with her adventurous Mum, Gwen in tow, they travel to France to put the Château on the market but are soon drawn into a quest to seek the Château’s secrets.

Who is Justine? Why is she living at the Château? How did she know her husband?

Over the Summer months, the Château fills with family and laughter and secrets are discovered and old wounds begin to heal.


My Review:

There are times when I need a light, breezy book to just escape into. Summer at the Chateau is just such a book.

It’s beautiful setting in northern France, the Chateau with the large land plot, the pond, the cottage in the back, the gardens – oh my, it makes my heart happy to think of such a place. It would be hard to find a more perfect setting for these types of light, fanciful reads.

I also loved the family aspect of the book. While Pixie is still coming to terms with her husband’s death, she has different family members that she can lean on, if needed. Another happy part of the story.

What I wasn’t too fond of is all the secrets that were kept from Pixie. How she literally had a huge problem right in front of her and decided to just sticker her head in the sand. Once she found out the secrets, she just had a good cry, shrugged it off and said let’s move on. I wouldn’t have been nearly as gracious and probably would have had my middle finger up to several of those secret keepers for quite a little while. Especially the ones with the bad secrets.

But apparently that’s not the kind of book this is and I’ll just have to be ok with it. LOL
A cute read in a beautiful setting to help lift your cares away. If this is the type of read you are looking for next, definitely pick up this book and lay back and relax.
