This story was a breath of fresh air. It’s a perfect beach read although I’m just imagining that part as I read it during a snowy April weekend.. It may pull me straight into the historical romance genre. Is that a thing? I should check. Anyway,
I loved this story that I thought would be about the wedding of Grace Kelly and her Prince.
Instead James the photographer and Sophie the perfumer are in the forefront of this story that reads like the script of Roman Holiday or some other classic Hollywood flick. In a way both James and Sophie are alchemists and I loved the detailed descriptions of both of their arts.
The entire love story of James and Sophie captivated me. Grace Kelly turns out to be a bit of a fairy godmother in this tale of second chance love and I could picture the Cote d Azure setting perfectly in my minds eye.
If you are looking for a delightful grown up fairy tale that has a satisfying surprise ending this book is for you.
