Falling For a French Dream

Escape to hills high above the French Riviera with international bestseller Jennifer Bohnet.

After tragically losing her husband, Nicola Jacques and her teenage son Oliver relocate to his father’s family’s Olive Farm in the hills above the French Riviera.

Due a family feud, Oliver has never known his fathers’ side of the family and Grandpapa Henri is intent that Oliver will take over the reins of the ancestral farm and his rightful inheritance.

Determined to keep her independence from a rather controlling Grandpapa, Nicola buys a run-down cottage on the edge of the family’s Olive Farm and sets to work renovating their new home and providing an income by cultivating the small holding that came with the Cottage.

As the summer months roll by, Nicola and Oliver begin to settle happily into their new way of life with the help of Aunts Josephine and Odette, Henri’s twin sisters and local property developer Gilles Bongars.

But the arrival of some unexpected news and guests at the farm, force Nicole and Aunt Josephine to assess what and where their futures lie.

This book was previously published as The French Legacy.

Hi everyone,

today, I’m back with a review for “Falling for a French Dream” by Jennifer Bohnet. If you don’t love France and it’s countryside, I’m sure that Jennifer and her writing will help you fall in love with the country. Her writing style is just making you daydream. 

In this book, we are following our main heroine, Nicola, and her new life in France. After her ex husband passed away, his father Henri invited Nicola and her son Oliver to get closer to him. She decides to sell her house in the UK and move to France. Even though, Henri doesn’t seem to be warming up to them, in the end he changes. 

I’ve found Nicola to be a very strong character, especially with everything that she had to endure. To just sell everything you own and know and move with your teenage son into a foreign country probably wasn’t easy but this experience made her stronger, for sure. Not only that, but even after divorce and losing her ex husband, she has found love again. 

If you want to travel to the French countryside but aren’t able to, pick up this book. Jennifer’s writing is magical and she just grabs you emotionally. I’ve enjoyed this book so much. I have to admit that there were few emotional moments where I cried but that just added to the depth of the book. I hope you pick up this book and check it out for yourself. 

Love and Light,
