The Chateau of Happily Ever Afters by Jaimie Admans Review

Blurb

Where dreams come true…?

Wendy Clayton stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago. Instead, she has a ‘nice’ life. Nice job. Nice flat. Absolutely no men. Until her life is turned upside-down when her elderly neighbour, Eulalie, passes away and leaves her the Château of Happily Ever Afters!

But there’s a catch: she must share the sprawling French castle with Eulalie’s long-lost nephew, Julian. And no matter how gorgeous he is, or how easily she finds herself falling head over heels, Wendy needs to find a way to get rid of him…

Because surely happily ever afters don’t happen in real life?

Escape to beautiful France this summer with this uplifting romantic comedy. Perfect for fans of Kat French, Caroline Roberts, and Holly Martin.

Review

This was a charming summer read, perfect for escaping into on a hot day. Wendy has a nice, normal life with no adventures until her neighbour Eulalie leaves her the beautiful Chateau of Happily Ever Afters in France. After unexpectedly becoming its part-owner, Wendy finds the biggest adventure of her life is about to begin. Especially when the other owner turns out to be Eulalie’s nephew Julian.

Jaimie’s style of writing is so easy to read. I was hooked from page one and invested in Wendy’s journey right away. She goes from being someone who’s very comfortable in her life and doesn’t take chances, to someone who readily accepts the challenge of owning a sprawling estate. The chateau and French countryside are richly described and I loved the interaction between her and Julian. Although they’re complete opposites in just about every way you can think of, they also have a sizzling chemistry that develops throughout the story. Their differences make their relationship just as interesting as their similarities.

This book was a warm, funny read that instantly transported me to rural France with two characters I absolutely loved and didn’t want to say goodbye to!

Author Bio

Jaimie is a 32-year-old English-sounding Welsh girl with an awkward-to-spell name. She lives in South Wales and enjoys writing, gardening, watching horror movies, and drinking tea, although she’s seriously considering marrying her coffee machine. She loves autumn and winter, and singing songs from musicals despite the fact she’s got the voice of a dying hyena. She hates spiders, hot weather, and cheese & onion crisps. She spends far too much time on Twitter and owns too many pairs of boots.

She will never have time to read all the books she wants to read.

She is the author of chick-lit romantic comedies The Chateau of Happily Ever Afters and Kismetology, and she has also written young-adult romantic comedies Afterlife Academy, Not Pretty Enough, and North Pole Reform School.
