Is JoJo ready to open her heart again?
‘She had me at Bonjour! Warm, funny, deliciously French…this lovely story filled my heart with sunshine’ Jane Linfoot
Imagine yourself in beautiful France with the sun warm on your face and a glass of wine in your hand…Jojo’s French Escape is the perfect summer read!
Trapped in paradise…
For twelve months JoJo Grant has been hiding from a secret too shameful to share. And whilst her sanctuary might be the beautiful French countryside, JoJo has a horrible feeling that her peace is about to be shattered…because bursting into her life is the hottest celebrity chef around – Callum O’Connor.
Callum knows all about JoJo’s past, her time as a reality star, the scandal that has dogged her, but he isn’t sure why she’s still hiding? After spending time with Jojo, it’s obvious to him that she has nothing to be ashamed of – she just needs to be a little braver…
But as much as JoJo likes Callum, he thrives on the glare of the outside world. Can JoJo let go of her past…with Callum by her side?
JoJo Grant escaped a year ago to France after being in a scandal. She found her peace staying with Poppy in a quiet village in rural France. She tries to keep the scandal a secret to everyone. But when celebrity chef Callum O’Connor is coming to stay at the holiday retreat, JoJo is fearful that all her secrets will be out in the open and she has no other place to run too…
And if there is something Callum really despises, it’s reality starts doing everything for their moment of fame.
Staying at the same place, will it be a recipe for disaster? Or will they find some common ground? And will Callum be the one to help JoJo with letting go of her past?
It was SO nice to find myself back in France! I didn’t know how much I missed every character until I read about them all over again!
And getting to know JoJo was like adding the last piece of the puzzle.
JoJo’s story is a sad one… she once thought she loved and was being loved. But then her heart got broken not only by her boyfriend but also by her best friend. And to add more salt in her wounds, something even worse happens.
I felt so sorry for JoJo when I got to know her story, she was treated so wrongfully.
And when Callum appears he just seems like one of so many, judging her without knowing the true story.
I understood why Jojo reacted in the way she did, but I was so hoping for her that the arrival of Callum would mean she could put the past behind her.
Slowly JoJo is opening up again, starting to be her old self again. and thanks to the attraction she has for Callum, she is becoming a trusting person again.
She goes from an introvert, ashamed person to a beautiful, confident woman again. And when moment of doubts dare to appear, she has Callum by her side.
Callum… despite his initial prejudice, he turns out to be just what JoJo needs… He sees her true nature and realizes that there are always 2 versions of a story.
He is patient, understanding and caring. He is a shoulder to cry on, being there when JoJo needs that extra nudge.
I enjoyed this story about finding your confidence back, facing your demons and daring to trust and love again.
And with the right person by your side, you can be your strong, confident self again, without judgement!
