Summer in France on the Beach, or at least in France


This post comes from our bookseller Katie L. 


I sure as hell can’t afford to vacay in the Riviera this summer, but these books’ll do their best to take ya there from wherever you’re stuck.9781844087600

The Dud Avacado by Elaine Dundy

A lot of this book is set in Paris, where our protagonist is trying to figure out her life in the 1950s Parisian boho scene. She ends up on the beach eventually though, and the story ends with a thrilling twist. Kind of like Plath meets A Moveable Feast with a little bit of crime thrown in – it’s a fun one.9780061440793

Bonjour, Tristesse by Francoise Sagan

This one’s just a lovely little story, sort of coming-of-age on a beach in France. Despite the title and a very French ending, it doesn’t leave you with a despairing kind of sadness. It’s youthful and hopeful, I think.

I am an Indie Author. Fresh on the scene. I published my first two books thanks to Amazon Kindle. And I have published using createspace and keep on publishing. Currently I am working on my follow up novel to my romance novella Love. A strange person I am trying to tell stories from the inside out where the reader can live the life rather than just read it.
