Escape to the Little Chateau by Marie Laval / #Review @ChocLituk @marielaval1

Will Amy’s dreams of a Provençal escape come true? There are many reasons Amy Carter is determined to make Bellefontaine, her farmhouse hotel in the French countryside, a success. Of course, there’s the time and money she’s put in to making it beautiful, but she also has something to prove – particularly to people like Fabien Coste.

Fabien is the owner of the nearby château, and he might just be the most arrogant, patronising man Amy has ever met … unfortunately, he’s also the most handsome.

But as rumours circulate in the local community and secrets about the old farmhouse begin to reveal themselves, Amy quickly sees the less idyllic side of life at Bellefontaine. Could Fabien be the man to help prevent her Provençal dream from turning into a nightmare?

My review

This author’s books are a mixture of some delicious things that result in a great book.

She takes a pinch history, adds a measure of suspense and pours a tasty romantic sauce over it. Mmmm, it makes you smacking your lips and your eyes glued to the pages. 

But often in history things were not always very bright and cozy. Many times horrible things took place and some people want to keep those traditions and beliefs alive. To do that though, others have to suffer and how.

Things people do for money and religion are not the loveliest ones. On the contrary. Greed and power more than once take over from common sense. 

Who will take the upper hand? Will the good ones save the day or will the bad ones succeed this time?

A wonderful story that kept me entertained from the very beginning until the very last word. More, please. 🙂 5 stars, no doubt about that.

Thank you, Marie Laval and Choc Lit
