I have heard of Laura Kinsale and when I worked in a bookstore she was a top romance seller and most requested. I have never read any of her books mainly because I am not a historical romance even a romance reader as you can see by my blog. When Danielle at Sourcebooks was looking for reviewers for this book I figured I would attempt to read this book and give this genre a chance. This is reading outside my comfort zone.
It was a good story but I just didn’t get the pleasure out of the book like I have in so many other books. I stuck with the book and read it and didn’t abandon it.
Lessons in French is about Callie and Trev. Its a story about a friendship and a first love that is never lost. Even though Callie and Trev were apart for many years because of certain things that happened they never forgot each other. Which can be said in alot of our lives. Do you still remember your first love? I still remember it and to this day it will always be remembered.
In all books we always hope for a happily ever after and you can’t help but wonder if that will happen for Callie and Trev because at times you don’t think it will be something comes up that causes you to think differently. Will Callie and Trev get their happily ever after and the second chance at love again?
Callie is a heiress and Trev is a frenchman. They have been separated for nine years. During those nice years Callie is now 27 years old and has had three fiancés along with three broken engagements. She is still mourning the loss of her father. Trev has returned because he loves his mother and she is very ill and he is concern. He is surprised to see Callie and even more surprised when he finds out she is not married.
