After reading the first part of the series, I was curious to find out what happened next with Sydney and Louis, the couple that fought so hard for their relationship. Even when the worst is far behind them, they still cannot enjoy the life together. Why? They have to please their families. Three weddings, one for Sydney’s family, one for Louis’ family and one that is supposed to be the wedding of their dreams. One wedding is stressful enough, but three?! Between organizing the weddings, Louis de ...more

Sydney Bennet oops sorry, Sidney Durand is back with a bang! We left Sydney and Louis, after a very speedy romance and a civil ceremony, settling down to married life. Of course, being Sydney nothing is straightforward, and she now has two more weddings to navigate. One in America for her family and another, much scarier one, in France for Louis’ family.

So between coping with wedding preparations, financial pressures, a very pregnant sister and a formidable mother-in-law she can’t actua

The Weddings

Meeting inlaws for the first time can be stressful. Not speaking the same language, even more. Knowing that you are going to embarrass yourself in front of them, terrifying.

One of the stupidest things I have ever read. I don't know how it got into my want to read list. Piece of absolute awful chic lit.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

French Toast is Glynis Astie's second novel, and it is the second novel in a series that is loosely based on her real life. French Toast is a slightly intense, yet humorous, look at the roller-coaster of married life.

After their whirlwind romance and wedding, Sydney and Louis try to settle into married life. However, they're thrown a few curve balls. The first is the loss of a job which puts an incredible strain on

French Toast, and it's prequel French Twist, by Glynis Astie tell the story of how she met and married her French husband in six short month... and then proceeded to have three weddings, in three different time zones!

The plot was almost too cheesy to bear - until you remembered that it was based on a true story. Astie actually WAS swept off her feet by a charming Frenchman, and married him six months later! The fact that the story was true meant that instead of feeling annoyed at the fairytale l

Inspired by her real life whirlwind six month romance and marriage to her French husband, Sebastien, author Glynis Astie weaves an entertaining romantic comedy series called The French Twist Series!

In French Twist, the first book in the series, the reader is introduced to Sydney Bennett, a single twenty-something New Yorker who has moved to San Francisco. Sydney hasn't been lucky in the romance area, but when she meets handsome Louis Durand, who is town on business, Sydney is swept off her feet

I received the book from the author for an honest review.
French Toast is the second book in the French Twist Series and continues where book 1 has ended. Sydney Bennet Durand has definitely grown on me; with her neurotic behavior and all. *smile*
This young woman is the epitome of worries as she moved through her day to day activities and manage to work out all that life had to throw at her, but at the end her support system kept her sane; even from a distance.

A well crafted continuation of the book, French Twist, I found this book really entertaining.

We rejoin newlyweds Sydney and Louis Durand, as they enter the first year of marriage and cope with the trials and tribulations of planning two wedding on two continents. Louis has seamlessly merged with Sydney's family, but she has yet to meet any of his family who live in France. What could make Sydney more neurotic? A highly demanding French mother-in-law.

French Toast is a direct sequel to French Twist and it picks up almost exactly where French Twist left off. It is the second in a planned trilogy, and I'd say you definitely need to read the first one beforehand.

In this story, Sydney and Louis are now newlyweds whose newly-wedded bliss is slowly wearing off. The couple is enduring massive amounts of stress including Louis being laid off from his job, mounting bills, and the continued pursuit of perfection in the form of their second and third w

Even though I have not read the first book in this series by Glynis Astie, I enjoyed this fun book and the main and secondary characters. Who knew getting married could become so complicated? Now I want to read other books in this series!

French Toast is the second book of a series with Sydney Bennett as the main character. I haven’t read French Twist, so this was my first book by Glynis to read.

The blurb sounded interesting from the start and I was really curious about the story.
I love weddings and it was great to have more than one wedding to read about in this book. Sydney planned her own wedding and then there was Louis’ (her husband) mother Simone planning a

French Toast, the second book of the French Twist series by Glynis Astie, was a delightful book. I really enjoyed getting to know Sydney and Louis. French Toast was written as a stand alone novel, but I really wish I'd read the first book before I started reading the second. While you could read the second book and understand the story, I felt a bit cheated by not knowing the history of the characters - it was almost like walking in on a private joke.

The mishaps and issues that crop up for this

The craziness never stops!

This book is a continuation of the crazy Sydney we met in the first book. She continues to regal us with her crazy family, friends, the love of her life, Louie, and her joyous crazy spirit which makes her uniquely her. I can't wait to read of her in her next book. I have enjoyed meeting her new family, her loyal, trustworthy friends, and the ever ready love and support of her immediate family. She takes you on an adventure that makes you feel included like you're observ
