    A cute story but it struggled a lot. First person is hard to do and it didn?t work here. I never felt like Olivia tried very hard to find Andre or support her son either. I was provided with an ARC of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ...

    A wonderful holiday read, I would have loved to have read this poolside, in the sun, drinking a cocktail, as it would have transported me even more into the pages of this book. As it was I was reading it on a miserable bank holiday weekend and the only warmth I could feel was as I was ...

    I was really happy when I got a digital copy of this book through NetGalley since it sounded like the perfect summer read, and as usual I am happy to leave a review. I never realized that I had a preference in book styles, but apparently I do, because I really don't like the 1st person...

    This is such a lovely story of a long-lost love, family secrets and second chances. The setting is superb as who doesn't want to read about France's Cote d'Azur? When you add a bakery and a handsome Frenchman then it's pretty much perfect. I loved Liv's aunt and her wacky friend who ...

    It was amazing to me that Jake didn't push for info about his father until he was 18 but his mother Liv's hunt for her summer love Andre is what propels this nice read. Liv's a baker, as is her aunt, and there are terrific descriptions not only of her cakes but also of the food in Fran...

    I think I was the wrong audience for this book. It?s a sweet, slow, very detail-oriented accounting of the main character, Liv?s, journey to France to find her son?s father after twenty years. To me, it read like a journal and the slower pace felt a bit tedious, but that?s on m...
