    4.5 stars!

    4.5 stars! I couldn't help but get sucked into the world of Chamillon and its lovable characters (aside from Henri)! Clarke painted the perfect idyllic picture of a coastal French village, that I could easily spend days absorbed in. The characters were engaging and multifaceted with well-developed histories and complex emotions. Elle and Charlie are adorable and I loved the slow burn of their romance. Elle's search was interesting, but did not muddy the entire novel in unnecessary details. Though I was frustrated with Henri from the get-go (and if I'm being honest, his existence is probably the reason this wasn't a full 5 stars for me), I didn't feel he was a poorly written character. He exemplified so many issues women have with men on a regular basis that I spent much of the book seething over the situation he put Elle in. Filled with emotional twists and plenty of romance, Summer at the Little French Cafe was truly a perfect summer escape. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for providing me with an ARC.

    A lovely book and the first in a new series.

    Elle Matheson is 30 years old and she is determined to find her birth mother. All she has to go on is a faded postcard. This leads her to the beautiful village of Chamillion. Will she find the answers she is seeking? When she approaches a lady that runs a café, and her son, she begins to get the help she is looking for. The café owner's son, Charlie, affects Elle on a visceral level. However, she is certainly not focused on romance at the time. Meanwhile, Charlie doesn't seem apparently available, so Elle does not understand why she is so drawn to him. Elle fits in on the island, even working in the café. It is beautiful, and the people are lovely. However, finding her mother does not go so smoothly. How will this bode for her future and for her happiness? One enjoyable thing about this book it is more than a romance. It contains a bit of humor that certainly made this book far more enjoyable to read. I do wish I had read the first book in this series, and definitely hope that I will be able to read more about this little village and its genuine people. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for a honest review.
