Description

 One (crumbling) French castle. Two enemies-at-first-sight. The holiday of a lifetime.

Merry DeLuca has a problem—a big problem. Her sister just married her best friend and the only man she’s ever loved. Her life is rapidly spiraling down the drain and she doesn’t have an escape plan.

So when Merry is offered a three-month holiday living in a romantic castle in the French countryside she leaps at the chance. Merry knows her French holiday will fix everything—there will be mouthwatering pastries, delicious (meaningless) flirtations, and languid strolls through vineyards at sunset. Her holiday will be perfect.

Famous travel documentarian by day and arrogant devil by night, Noah refuses to leave the castle. Which means that Merry and Noah are stuck together in France, in a crumbling castle, in a holiday where nothing goes right. Not for Merry and not for Noah.

So they strike a truce—they’ll live as cohabitating friends for three-months, and then they’ll amicably part ways, never to see each other again.

But the thing about friendship? Sometimes secrets are uncovered. Mysteries revealed. Hearts laid bare. And friendship can start to feel a lot like caring. A lot like love. It can even make you wish that the holiday never has to end.

 One (crumbling) French castle. Two enemies-at-first-sight. The holiday of a lifetime.

Merry DeLuca has a problem—a big problem. Her sister just married her best friend and the only man she’s ever...

Featured Reviews

French Holiday was a very interesting and absorbing novel. They say 'never judge a book by its cover,' and this book really does give more than the cover indicates. A story about finding yourself, containing some very funny episodes, which had me laughing! I also enjoyed the frequent descriptions of France, which were many and varied, and which transported me there, especially of the chateau!
The style of the book could be called a romantic comedy, although this story offers so much more, with genuine insights into the human psyche. The middle sections of the story included an additional mystery, which took us down a different path, leading to a cliffhanger situation. Brilliant!
This book would appeal to anyone who feels the need to escape from the restrictions of life, especially with the lure of France on offer! I would recommend it, and look forward to reading more stories by Sarah Ready. It was a pleasure to review French Holiday for NetGalley.
