I am thrilled to tell you all that I am part of the blog tour for Lisa’s fantastic new novel Catch me if you Cannes. Definitely the perfect summer read this year. My Review is below.
Jess has decided it’s time to get out of her comfort zone and live a little. So when her best friend Bryony, a journalist on a gossip magazine, is sent to cover the Cannes Film Festival, Jess decides to seize the day and go along for the ride. Two weeks of sun, glamour and exclusive entry into celeb-filled parties is just the kind of adventure Jess needs.
Reality soon bites though when Jess and Bryony find they’re staying in a dingy hotel far away from all the action and Bryony’s expenses budget barely covers a glass of local wine. Undeterred, the two women are determined to live like the elite and enjoy one fancy night out to begin their holiday. So what if they have to tell a few white lies along the way? It’s just this once. No harm done . . . right?
I have loved every book by Lisa and she is just getting better and better! Lisa definitely knows how to write the perfect character with plenty of things going on that is going to make you laugh lots!
So whats happening? well Jess has met a boy..yes a gorgeous at that, made lots of new friends and has felt how the other life lives now she may have to go back to her normal self but will she want to?
Jess and Leo are getting on like a house on fire, you could say she has never felt like this before and doesn’t want this holiday to stop…but then her best friend Bryony drops a bombshell and Jess doesn’t quite know whether to believe her or try and prove her Best Friend wrong about Leo?
Jess is such a funny character, she is just plain Jane but as soon as she came to Cannes with her best friend Bryony and has made lots of new friends who like to party, spend lots of money and are in the crowds with celebrities. She gets her self in some disastrous scenario’s but gives you plenty of giggles! Jess & Leo are so cute together! Their love for Nutella & Crepes is so cute and throughout the book I’m rooting for them to get together!
I cannot fault Catch me If You Cannes at all, It is a perfect summer read and I couldn’t put it down! If you want a book to make you giggle throughout, then your at the right place! Catch Me If You Cannes has plenty of drama, crazy moments, a bit of romance and a dream life anybody would be jealous of Jess & Bryony!
Well everything just gets even more complicated for Jess in the last part of
Catch Me If You Cannes. She is out to prove Leo isn’t a drug lord which Bryony has said he is, but things just get ever so confusing and even more drama happens in Jess’ life. . . I don’t want to say much more because I just think you should buy this and read for yourself!
You will most certainly laugh (be careful of reading in public) and will be hoping Jess gets her happily ever after which is what you want in any chick lit book at the end! The whole book is just pure fantastic with plenty of laughs throughout! Perfect Summer read this year.
Thank You Lisa and Clara at Little Brown for letting me part of this amazing blog tour! I’ve enjoyed the book ever so much! I am going to be passing the book on to my friends so they can all have a giggle while reading this amazing book like I did.
When’s the next book Lisa?
You Fantastic Lady!
I reward Catch Me If You Cannes 5 fantastic, amazing, sizzling hot shimmering stars.
