Blog Tour 28th January 2019

Today it’s my stop on the blog tour for ‘What Happens in France’ by Carol Wyer. I’m delighted to be part of it. Thanks to Ellie Pilcher at Canelo for inviting me to take part.

My Thoughts – So funny and entertaining!

Bryony has been looking for her sister, Hannah, for many years. She even set up a blog trying to find her. Hannah had left home when Bryony was a child and she always blamed herself for this. Their dad is in very poor health after having a stroke, so she stepped her search up a notch.

She saw an advert for contestants for a new game show and immediately entered hoping this could be massive publicity in her search for Hannah if she got selected. She attended a local audition where she was surprised to see Lewis, one of her neighbours.

There were some funny scenes here meeting other potentials contestants. I really liked Oscar and his pug, Biggie Smalls.

And Jim with his amazing knowledge and his love for his grandchildren. A really great cast, the game show crew and contestants, even Professor Potts! Some of the madcap games made me laugh, especially the blindfolded driving course. A bit like ‘It’s a Knockout’ meets ‘Treasure Hunt’. In fact a real mix of all the best game shows, such fun.

The relationship between Bryony and her girlfriends was lovely too.

It’s a change for me to step away from crime novels and chick-lit and have a good laugh out loud story. Very funny and entertaining, easy to read and relatable too.

All my reviews are quite short and concise as I’m here to show off the book rather than my own writing ability.

Thanks to Carol Wyer and Canelo for the review copy in which I give my honest opinion.

  1. Hugest of thanks for this superb review, Steph, and for kicking off the What Happens in France blog tour. I am truly delighted you enjoyed the story. I have to say, writing it made a welcome break from my intense thrillers and I laughed a lot while doing so! Mr Grumpy said I looked more cheerful during my breaks from it. Thinking up those games was one of the biggest challenges for me… maybe I should apply to ITV to produce a reality game show now. LOL. Thank you again. Your support and review mean such a lot to me.
