    Hidden depths

    The cover makes this look like a very lighthearted bordering on frivolous book however there’s a bit more depth to the story than it implies. Olivia (Liv) hasn’t truly moved on in love since a holiday romance twenty years ago, albeit a romance that left her a lasting memory in the form of her son Jake. Liv has always been honest about his paternity and he has never seemed to wonder about his father until now. Liv travels back to the south of France to stay with her aunt in the hope of tracking down her long lost love and to help her aunt out whilst she recovers from a knee operation. There’s some lovely characters in this, some great scenery and a few laughs thrown in. A really nice summer read

    A very enjoyable read.

    Life is being very good to Olivia. She has given up an unfulfilling teaching job and has opened her own bakery. Liv has also managed to raise a son all on her own, with the aid of her parents. While visiting from university, her son, Jake, comes home a bit disillusioned about his courses. More seriously, he is bemoaning the fact that he never met his father. Liv decides to visit France, where she spent many summers with her Aunt Gen, to try and discover the whereabouts of Jake's father, Andre. When Liv arrives at her aunt's home and bakery, her first order of business is to help her aunt while she recovers from surgery. However, in the back of her mind she knows she must begin asking around about Andre. It has been twenty years, and she has not seen him since she was eighteen years old. It was a first love for both of them, but during the summer they were together, Andre often told Liv of his desire to travel the world, and that he did. How is Liv going to find him for Jake? As it happens, she does find Andre. So now the question is, how things will go, not just for Jake and his father, but for Liv and Andre themselves? With the support of friends Faye and Jo, Liv does the best she can to make her son happy. In so doing this gives her a chance to see where her heart, and future, lie. What a sweet story. As much as this turned out to be a wonderful romance, there was humor included that pushed the story along. It helped to break up the seriousness of the situation of the fact that Liv had to find Andre. There was also a lot of good food in this book! Whether it was baked delicacies or fine french cuisine, it was indeed mouth-watering. I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Sue Roberts and look forward to reading more of her in the future. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    warm and easy summer rea

    Olivia is a thirty something, single mom, a baker/cake artist living in England. When her just turning adult son, Jack, expresses how much he resents not having his father, Olivia decides to travel back to her aunt’s bakery/home in France where she met Andre’. Andre’ was her summer fling, her first love and the father of her son who she lost touch with because he went traveling after Olivia returned home to England. This book we leave you hungry and read to bake with the descriptive creations the characters are concotting. On the plus side, Sue Roberts shares the recipes if you are so included to hit the kitchens. A Very French Affair was a warm and easy summer read. Sweet situations, family and friendships with little to no conflict that was character internal dialog contrived. I liked A Very French Affair but in the end it was just a like. I received this ARC copy of A Very French Affair from Bookouture. This is my honest and voluntary review.
