Lets kick off this relaxing Sunday with a review for One Summer in Monte Carlo by Jennifer Bohnet

I love reading books by Jennifer Bohnet and jumped at the chance to read One Summer in Monte Carlo for the blog tour and to immerse myself in some wonderful escapism.

My Review

One Summer in Monte Carlo was a perfect read to transport me away, I love how Jennifer Bohnet uses such wonderful locations in the books and in this one you see us head off to Monte Carlo for F1 season.

The story was full of vivid descriptions right down to the noise and and thrills associated with F1 on this street made circuit. Through the descriptions of the hustle and bustle you really got a feel for the jubilant atmosphere and the parties held to celebrate this major event in the calendar.

Whilst in one half of this story we are with Nanette and the twins in Monte Carlo reliving her tragedy from 3 years previously. On the other side of the world Vanessa & Ralph are embarking on married life in the depths of the Amazon filming a documentary to try and help raise awareness to the shifts in how the small villages live and how the environment is impacting this.

I loved the two very different destinations and the totally different vibes you get when reading about them. I found I flew through this book, it was light hearted and provided some wonderful and much needed escapism.

Another wonderful story by Jennifer Bohnet, grab yourself a copy and enjoy the rest of your day curled up and enjoying the fast moving pace of Monte Carlo.

Book Blurb

Monte Carlo means different things to different people; a billionaires playground, overflowing with glitz and glamour but also where dangerous secrets hide.

For Nanette Weston, and her then fiancé, F1 racing driver Zac Ewart, their dream life came to an abrupt halt 3 years ago following a car accident which Zac walked away from, but left Nanette being airlifted back to the UK, never to return and never to see her fiancé again.

Monte Carlo was a place she wanted to forget, not revisit. But when her friend and employer, Vanessa asks Nanette to look after her children in the Principality for a few months, Nanette knew she had no choice but to return.

As the F1 circus once again comes to town, with Zac in pole position, mistakes of the past, leave legacies for the future…

This book was previously published as Follow Your Star by Jennifer Bohnet.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
