The Little French Bistro by Nina George {Book Review}

The Little French Bistro tells the story of Marianne Messaman, who starts the novel by trying to kill herself in Paris. I warned you it was melancholy! The novel tell the story from there and I don't want to spoil anything, but it involves.... a Little French Bistro. #books #bookreviews

I was a fan of The Little Paris Bookshop and its interminable love of all things bookish, but Nina George's latest book, The Little French Bistro just didn't hit the mark for me. I found it melancholy, then treacly, then insta-lovey.

The Little French Bistro tells the story of Marianne Messaman, who starts the novel by trying to kill herself in Paris. I warned you it was melancholy! The novel tell the story from there and I don't want to spoil anything, but it involves.... a Little French Bistro.

You know what I did adore about this book though? The food! Also, the clear love and admiration of the Breton culture made me want to hop on a plane and visit the region.

I also appreciated truly a story with a female protagonist who was later in life, but still swayed by an invitation for love and happiness. If you like your stories more on the sappy side and all tied up in a bow at the end, this one is for you!
