Well, this book is VERY OBVIOUSLY an 80s book. And it wasn't because no one had cell phones and people were WRITING ACTUAL HANDWRITTEN LETTERS(!!!!), but rather... the style.
I liked Serenity... to a point. She was feisty and stood up for herself. She wasn't the typical TSTL heroine of the 80s.... but then, she also seemed to cry... all the time. I liked that she's a virgin. There's ...more
On the story...
Serenity has lost her parents and has traveled to France after receiving a letter from the grandmother she didn't even know she had. Hurting and lonely, she rushes to France to find her long lost family but she doesn't get the welcome that she expects. Christophe is cold and uncaring, thinking Serenity has returned in hopes of gaining some of the family wealth. This is a nice sweet romance that captures the attention and brings a smile to the face. While the characters don't blow ...more

Jika anda bukan pengemar romance yg muluk2, buku ini lumayan juga, tapi jika anda mencari sebuah cerita dengan sisi romantis yg banyak, anda akan kecewa.
I have to keep reminding myself of this. And let me tell you, this book was published in 1982. And I mean that in every sense. After just getting off of Roberts 2017 “Come Sundown” this book is just a titch (A WHOLE LOT) different. This book offers what all of N.R.’s books offer; compelling characters, painted scenery, and an intriguing plot. What this book didn’t offer that most of her works do was likable cha ...more
The story is really well plotted, there are lots of twists and turns that are unexpected which is hard to do in romance. I love how everything works out at the end, very neat and still believable. The blossoming relationship between Serenity and Christophe is hot, and both characters learn about themselves and overcome difficulties together. It's funny and realistic, especially the dialogue between the two protagonis ...more

This was a lovely little story with lots of French culture and language weaved into the story. Very interesting and very sweet.
Easy read with compelling emotional characters and a nice plot which kept things interesting. Would recommend reading on a lazy Sunday afternoon. ;)
