Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Heartwarming #FamilyDrama – Christmas on the Riviera by Jennifer Bohnet

My Review:

Three generations, life has torn one apart,
Will Christmas give them each a chance to heal every heart?
Elodie was left with her French grandmother
Whilst her mother flew away to make a new life with another.

After forty years of staying away
Why does her gran want to be in her hometown on Christmas Day?
However, Elodie is happy to go with her for the festive holiday
Who knows what she'll find out during their stay?

A story filled with family love and secrets from the past
That are slowly to be revealed to all at last.
New relationships, new places and new chances
As well as the possibility of some romances!

A heartwarming read filled with family drama and mystery
Along with revelations about past history.
The opportunity to start anew
If only they dare do!

I highly recommend this delightful family drama and romance,
I really hope you'll give it more than just a chance!
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
 I really enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.


As a toddler Elodie Jacques was abandoned by her mother and left in the care of her French grandmother, Gabriella in Dartmouth, Devon.

Now 24 years old, Elodie struggles to reconcile the deep anger for the mother she has never since seen.

When Gabriella unexpectedly announces she wants the two of them to spend Christmas and her 70th birthday in her home town of Juan-les-Pins in the South of France Elodie is thrilled.

Gabriella meanwhile has her own ulterior motives for wanting to return after 40 years, a daunting homecoming potentially filled with memories, secrets and recriminations.

With Juan-les-Pins pulsing with lights, decorations and the festive spirit, Christmas promises to be filled with fun. But when Elodie learns there is the possibility that her long absent mother may join them she hides her feelings behind a show of indifference and animosity.

Will there be the reconciliation that Gabriella longs for – or will the spirit of Christmas fail to work its magic?
