I was given this book for an honest review. What a delightful surprise. I was not looking forward to read this historical novel, boy, am I glad I read it. I have not enjoyed a book so much in a very long time. This novel takes you to the hotels, shops and restaurants throughout Paris, Geneva, Gstaad and Cannes. The vivid descriptions made you think that you were there. It is a story about two star crossed lovers coming from two very different backgrounds and all of the obstacles they has to endure in order to stay together. You ad the feeling that you were going through everything with them. The book is delightful, enjoyable and entertaining. I hope there will be a sequel so I can see how they faired.
