Fun read. Light story with a bit of a mystery.
Fun chick-lit with a literary/arts twist. Another good story from Wendy Holden.
Info from back of jacket:
A witty, winning escapade through the south of France from the internationally bestselling author of GOSSIP HOUND...
The only intrepid reporter in her hometown hamlet, Kate Clegg has dreams of parlaying her dead-end job at the Mercury, or Mockery, as it is affectionately known, into an award winning career with the most celebrated papers in London. But things seem to be going in the toilet, literally, since her biggest break thus far has been investigating a drainage disaster at the local high school. At least things can't get worse...
That is until shady billionaire Peter Hardstone's wildly attractive son, Nat, takes up residence at the Mercury's office with an offer Kate cannot refuse - a chance to cover the Cannes Film Festival on the luxurious Cote d'Azur.
With internationally acclaimed author Wendy Holden's signature verve, intelligence, and originality, Azur Like It is a rollicking ride through parties, haute couture, and glamour of the French Riviera where, behind the glitz, lies a mystery that make even the most jaded journalist salivate.
The story of a smalltown reporter's attempt to break out of her sleepy English hometown, only to find herself in a French town eerily similar to the English one she left behind! Twists and turns abound, along with a hefty does of mystery and romance in this (as the title would suggest) pun-filled novel.
Eh, I'm not a fan of Holden's. Hopefully, someone else will come along and love it. Isn't it great that we are all so diverse!?!
