Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

When Fia Jennings loses her job at the local newspaper, she thinks she’ll have the chance to bond with her teenage twins. As she realizes she may be too late to create the perfect family, she's saved by a phone call from her great Uncle Martin who runs a bed and breakfast in Provence. Uncle Martin wants Fia to venture to France to run the B&B so he and his wife Lucie can travel. He doesn’t tell Fia about the secret he hid in the house when he married Lucie after fighting in World War II, and he doesn’t mention the people who are tapping his phone and following him, hoping to find the secret.
After much cajoling, Fia whisks her family to France and is stunned when Uncle Martin and Aunt Lucie leave the same day for a Greek cruise. She’s thrown into the minutiae of a running the B&B without the benefit of speaking the language. Her dreams of family bonding time fade as her teenagers make French friends. Kasie joins a local swim team, riding off to practice on the back of a scooter each morning, hips tucked next to the 18-year-old French boy who teaches her to smoke brown cigarettes and drink red wine. West accompanies a pouty French teenager around the city, playing his guitar in the town squares to earn spending money. Fia’s husband Grayson begins touring the countryside with a pretty French woman, and Fia resists the distractions of Christophe, a handsome French man. Why the whirlwind of French welcome, Fia wonders after she comes home from a day at the beach in Nice to find someone has ransacked the B&B.
Fia parses Uncle Martin’s obscure phone calls, trying to figure out this WW II hero’s secret. Can she assuage Uncle Martin’s World War II guilt and build the family she’s always dreamed of?

In The Summer of France, author Paulita Kincer transports the reader to the lovely European countryside of Provence, in the south of France, where they follow the adventures of Fia Jennings, when she takes over the running of her uncle and aunt's B&B while they are on vacation. While running the B&B provides many challenges for Fia, she unexpectedly stumbles upon a mysterious dark secret from her uncle's past that could put her family in danger.

Author Paulita Kincer weaves a captivating women's fiction tale that has a wonderful mixture of romance, adventure, travel, mystery, and suspense, that easily draws the reader in with a richly descriptive storyline that takes the reader from the past during World War II to the present via the alternating perspectives of Fia and Uncle Martin.

The Summer Of France has a compelling storyline that engages the reader to follow Fia's adventures in France, while drawing them into the mystery and suspense of Uncle Martin's past. I really enjoyed reading this multi-layered story of romance and mystery. I thought that both Fia and Uncle Martin's stories flowed seamlessly, and the unexpected twists and turns easily kept me turning the pages. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the wonderful description of the setting, the author easily transported the reader to the tranquil south of France locale of Provence, it sounds like a lovely place to visit.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Mixing Cultures with Mystery 28 novembre 2012
Par Laura B. - Publié sur

I adore stories that put ordinary people into extraordinary circumstances, and The Summer of France delivers. In this case, Fia -- much the ordinary person -- is abruptly tasked with taking over her uncle's bed & breakfast in France. She barely knows the language, and neither her twins nor her husband are keen on taking on the adventure. But Fia, a person of boundless energy and optimism persists, so off they go.

Hah! Little does Fia know that her uncle has secrets that will soon impact her life well beyond the challenges of running a bed & breakfast. Her husband, apparently accustomed to having his own way, soon gravitates to the French way, but for all the wrong reasons. And Fia? Before she knows it she's thrust into a situation that requires trusting untrustworthy people and barreling through a countryside with a virtual stranger who she can't help but be attracted to.

Great story. Great "French" beach read (if there is such a thing.)

The only reason I didn't give this a 5-star rating is because I wasn't quite persuaded that despite all the extenuating circumstances (which I'm not about to give away) Fia would leave her kids in mystery while unraveling a greater mystery.

That said, this is the ultimate escapism book that will bring you into the rich folds of a wonderful country, and with a protagonist you'll quickly gravitate toward. I say go for it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Escape to Provence 14 mai 2013
Par Emily T. - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Paulita Kincer's The Summer of France is a welcome read for those living someplace other than Provence in summer, and need the welcome escape of a lively and moving novel about a woman who finds herself challenged by the unexpected - and luckily is up for the task.

First Fia is asked to drop everything and come to France to run an inn for her aging uncle, Martin, whose World War II mystery fills out the plot with great intrigue about a hidden secret. Then, having traveled to France with her husband and children with dreams of family togetherness, Fia must instead cope with a distant and sullen family and an overwhelming new job.

Kincer writes Fia's character well and has the reader cheering for her on her adventures in the inn and with a new friend, Christophe, with whom she conspires to solve her uncle's mystery. Fia is funny and resourceful and bold. She carries this engaging novel through to its satisfying conclusion.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Four stars and sadness. 25 avril 2013

I want to give this book a rating of four stars but can't make the change. I really liked the characters and the mystery. It did make me sad however as I read how easily Sofia let go of her marriage. It made me remember my own marriage and the fact that I decided to stay and try to make it work. Of course, I did not have a Christophe to distract me. Nor was I living in France.

Ok, now from here I could make the star change. This book rang true in a lot of ways. Teenagers that sometimes are self-centered, a husband who only thought of himself and a wife, mother and niece who took on the whole burden. I wasn't so fond of Fia's husband Grayson. What a jerk. I definitely understood all Fia's angst over the right thing to do, and her aches and pains after hours on the back of a motorcycle. What a ride.

Take time to read this book, it is a fun quick read, and you might even learn a little history.

I love to read and I especially love to read books I can get lost in. This is one of those books. An absorbing story, great characters and writing that sings to you. I couldn't put it down. I only wish I had discovered it on a summer vacation to read at the beach. Thanks Ms. Kincer for taking me to France for a few days. I needed that.
