The Little French Bistro by Nina George
I have to admit that I'm not a fan of romance novels, but I think this one goes beyond the boy meets girl idea.  By a bunch.  If adults had coming of age stories this one would fit there.  Marianne travels a road many people I know would love to, but fear taking the steps needed. And that is the basis of this book.  Taking the steps.  Joy, sorrow, whatever comes and keep on taking the steps.  

I agree with many of the comments already made about George's ability to build wonderful characters, paint scenes that vibrate with energy, and tell a story too.  Her writing touches the heart and not in some sappy, maudlin way.  A place of real emotions and desire.  Speaking of desire---her intimate scenes are just that, intimate.  In body and mind.  And not for just spicing things up a bit.  She captures the true nature of intimacy.  

Lucky breaks all along the way are my nit with this work, but I'm willing to go with that.  That's how into her writing I am.  Viva Nina!!  I enjoyed this book.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.
