This book pleasantly surprised me on a number of levels. As a man, the idea of Women's Fiction' didn't immediately appeal to me, but upon reading, it didn't take long for me to become drawn to the characters as their personalities and situations developed.
A sign of a good actor is that they can elicit an emotional reaction from you when playing a part. You laugh with them, hurt for them and even if you totally dislike the character they play, you are involved with them.

With her debut book, new author Tracy Leung has delivered a powerhouse of a novel with just the right amount of bite to stop it being a saccharine sweet tale of love.

Fleur de Lis, the first book in the Branche Olive series, centres around Olivia, a damaged young Frenchwoman who is still reeling from a tragic loss when she bumps into Simon, who appears on the surface to be a wealthy playboy.

I received the book Branche Olive: Fleur de Lis by winning a Goodreads giveaway and recently finished reading it. I have to say that I will read the other ones as well. When I first started reading it, I thought the story would be about "perfect happy love" but it turns out this book has a good balance of events. It's definitely a good read!
