A Fun Read
Rosie’s Little Cafe On The Riviera by Jennifer Bohnet is a delightful light hearted and fun contemporary read. Set on the Riviera in the summer, there is a wonderful blend of sea, sun, sand and romance and I loved it.
There are the themes of roots and belonging. Sometimes the past is a scary place to visit but it needs to be laid to rest in order to pursue the rest of one’s life.
Families are made up of all sorts of different members. Sometimes they fall out but ultimately blood ties bind.
There is the topic of grief. Losses are uniquely felt but the empty space at the table always equals pain in one’s heart.
New business ventures are the order of the day. Hard work and a will to succeed are great motivators.
The novel with its delicious descriptions brings the Riviera to life for the reader who can almost ‘feel’ the sun’s rays.
It was a wonderful read and perfect for the lead up to the summer season.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
