    Delightful A solid, decent well crafted romance story with just enough tension to keep me engaged Lovely characters and a great setting I particularly liked the fact that the author didn t overload the reader with unnecessary details about the father or the rest of the family Full of rich descriptions and great dialogue I struggled little with the flashbacks I find those in any book difficult to get my head round my fault, not the author s but the writing was lovely.

    Story Within a StoryJulia is elected by her two sisters to look at the centuries old mansion that her father purchased shortly before his death They want to sell it to finance their own lives and want to know what can be done to spiff it up Julia falls in love with the house as soon as she sees it s grandeur and the beautiful French countryside that it occupies.Julia still grieves for the loss of her father her crumbled relationship after the ectopic pregnancy that leaves her barren and being passed over by an incompetent man then finally being cut from her job Throwing herself into repair and visions of making the home her own ads the joy of finding historical items that begin to tell the tale of the homes past residents Life takes a turn for the better including an on again off again romance with her neighbor Jaques Ladier He is a handsome rough man with a penchant for arrogance and pride but leaves her feeling fiercely protected The tale begins to move into the lovely pace of the French life Work well done, food enjoyed, friends appreciated and supported and love trusted and shared without reservation Past and present seem to run in parallel and the lessons learned come naturally together This is a story lovingly told without treacle or force Beautiful.

    The search for the French property and subsequent discoveries of artifacts in the house were so authentic and I felt I could almost see and Touch them.The history of France and the revolution was so informative I learnt a great deal and sat up very late each night reading this.Most enjoyable.

    Where has this author been all my life Lost Found is one of the best books I ve ever read So beautifully written I was instantly transported into Julia s world I can t wait for Chloe Rayban to write another one Leo BearFor those who love France, fantasy property, history and a touch of mystery this book ticks all the boxes Engagingly written and wryly observed I could not put it down Gloria WoodEntrancing, elegant utterly romantic I started reading this book on the Eurostar back from Paris and honestly didn t want it to end It fulfils every fantasy you ve ever had about reinventing your life finding a crumbling chateau, moving to the French countryside and falling in love with a gorgeous Frenchman It s also beautifully written, astonishingly well researched, and historically gripping I m recommending this to every one I know and plotting my own escape to France Gorgeous Tiger

    I started out loving this book and falling in love with the house along with the MC, but then I got tired of her being the only character ,and there was far, far, far too much French words I cannot pronounce French and do not know the definitions, so it totally destroyed any flow to the story, and I gave up at about 30%.

    This book was recommended on a Facebook page I follow as an expat living in France I figured I d give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised It is a light, fun read, but well written with a well developed main character I fell in love with the storyline, my only complaint is the book ended too soon

  8. says:

    It was a wonderful enough book I enjoyed reading it when I was, but I wasn t drawn back to it to read late into the night It s still a great read and I would recommend it to others.
