I have been reading a lot but not making the time to sit down and write. But after flying through this delicious read by Anita Hughes, I felt like I had to share the warmth, class, and love found in French Coast. I would love for my next big trip to be to the Cote d’Azur and this book transported me to Cannes. When I started this blog, I wanted to provide recommendations for different types of readers like The Ambitious Reader, The Happy-Go-Lucky Reader, and The Escape Artist. This book delivers for both The Happy-Go-Lucky Reader and The Escape Artist. Besides the sexy love scenes, designer duds, and pristine locale, French Coast also tells intricate stories of the resiliency of love and their surprising intersections.
Five Reasons to Read:
- Anita Hughes knows the way to a girls’ heart–Vogue, Givenchy, and Moet & Chandon. When Vogue features editor Serena Woods goes to Cannes to interview former French Vogue editor Yvette Renault you’re in for all things fashion and French.
- Serena is surrounded by beauty while things keep falling apart for her, but she is always looking out for her new friend Zoe, daughter of an Australian fashion magnate, and putting others first.
- As Serena interviews Yvette, we’re propelled back into the sixties when Yvette was a young mother in an unhappy marriage. Her story is told with gritting honesty and poise.
- If you like a sexy beach read, you can’t go wrong with this book. But it has enough intrigue to keep you from getting bored.
- When the prose gets repetitive, Hughes digs deeper and provides more drama, more decisions for Serena, and more secrets are revealed.
