    unique storyline

    Kudos to Carol Wyer for coming up with a unique storyline in What Happens in France. This story tells a tale of family relationships and dynamics in a really unique way. The game show keep Bryony and Lewis challenged as their romance grow. There are plenty of things that will make you smile but you just might need some tissue, I did. I received an advance reader copy via Netgalley.

    What Happens in France

    What Happens in France is the latest book from Carol Wyer. I really hated to see this story come to an end. Great characters, a little romance, and a small mystery make this book difficult to put down. Fair warning, along with some laughs there may be a few tears. I was given a copy to review.

    Wonderfully endearing.

    My Rating: 4.5 Stars Bryony Masters has a mission. Her father has suffered a serious stroke. He gets better to a degree, but Bryony feels that she must now do the impossible. Thirty years ago her older sister Hannah ran away from home. Her family has never been the same since. Bryony feels that she must find Hannah before her father has any further health issues. She comes up with a fantastic idea. She decides to apply for a game show, hoping that this may be a way to appeal to the public in order to find her sister. Bryony knows that there very well may be several media opportunities that she can take advantage of. Bryony has a blog dedicated to her search for Hannah. However, although she leaves regular blog posts, her reach is rather limited. Meanwhile, Bryony enjoys time with with her best friend Melinda. This turns out to be a blessing, because Melinda‘s husband has a new friend named Lewis. Due to ideal circumstances, Lewis ends up becoming Bryony’s partner on the game show, which is called, What Happens in ... As expected, Bryony gets plenty of opportunities to talk about Hannah and about how much she is loved and truly missed. During the show quite a bit happens and each activity is really enjoyable to read about. I loved the trivial aspect of the show, all the characters in the story, and the beautiful landscapes that were described during the events. Carol Wyer has written an engaging women’s fiction story that develops into a wonderfully-endearing romance. I really enjoyed the humor that was peppered throughout the story. One thing that really worked for me was a twist that was funny and very surprising. The story was very well-balanced as there were sensitive moments that kept me keenly interested. What Happens in France flowed very well because it was rich with delightful characters, including a dog with a strong media presence of his own. This delightful read is done with excellent pacing, thus showcasing the marvelous talents of this prolific author.

    Lots of laugh-out-loud moments

    Bryony Masters father has had a massive stroke whilst looking through some old photos. Her mum believes that he won’t make it through another and that this one was brought on whilst he was looking at pictures of Hannah, his daughter (Bryony’s sister) who ran away thirty years ago aged just sixteen. Bryony has an idea to help track Hannah and get her to her father before he dies. Hannah used to love game shows and watched them all the time, so Bryony is going to go on one and make an appeal to her sister to come home. With popular game show ‘What Happens in’ looking for contestants she decides to apply. The plot might not sound like it would be highly amusing, but by God it is. Bryony is a wonderful character. Very intelligent, charismatic and humorous too. She loves her family and has always felt responsible for Hannah leaving and is determined to find her, even setting up a blog and Facebook page to try to locate her too. We also meet Lewis, Bryony’s new friend and accomplice in the game show that is this week set in France and called ‘What Happens in France’. The show takes place over a week and is filled with different types of games, some quizzes and some physical. I must also take a moment to make a shout-out to Jim and Oscars pet dog, Pug Biggie Small who is a superstar with his own Instagram account. The book kept me engaged the whole way through, the characters were perfectly realistic and the game show certainly something I would watch. I love how it was written in date form and also included the blog posts that Bryony put up speaking directly to her sister, hoping that she would see them. If you like comedies then this is definitely the book for you. It has lots of laugh-out-loud moments and will make you smile the whole way through.
