Book Review: The Little French Guesthouse

by: Helen Pollard

**I was given an ebook copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

I felt this story had a slow start. I don't wasn't badly written. It just felt a little overdone, cliché. We've got Emmy, a good English lady who is in a long-term relationship with a blockhead named Nathan. The story starts with Emmy looking for Gloria (Rupert's wife) to get her to call an ambulance for Rupert and she walks in on her boyfriend and Gloria going at it. Well, that actually is a unique way to start a break-up. They are on holiday in France and this is what he pulls?

When he leaves her for Gloria, she stays behind to help Rupert get better and run his business as she is still on holiday. She feels responsible as her boyfriend helped cause this mess. Emmy is really a thoughtful, lovely person. Once I got over it feeling contrived, it really did take off for me. I loved all the characters, and it was such a sweet story. I even teared up a little at a speech Rupert gives about Emmy.

I fell in love with this story by the end and I didn't want to leave any more than Emmy did - lol. I'd call this a beach read, it's quick and not too heavy and light on the romance.
