Word Scribbler Reading Challenge - Week 19 - A book with a yellow cover


Week 19 of my 52 book reading challenge (1 book per week for a year) is A book with a yellow cover. 

My chosen book this week is coincidentally (or not) set in Cannes, France. Those of you that follow me on Twitter will know that I have just returned from a holiday in the South of France, including time at the Cannes Film Festival. Last week's book was Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, some of which was set in Monaco although I was not aware of this until I read it. Look out for a blog post about my trip very soon. 



Book blurb - Catch Me If You Cannes by Lisa Dickenson.

The first part in this hilarious four-part romantic comedy, from the author of You Had Me at Merlot and The Twelve Dates of Christmas - winner of the Novelicious Debut of the Year award.

Jess has decided it's time to get out of her comfort zone and live a little. So when her best friend Bryony, a journalist on a gossip magazine, is sent to cover the Cannes Film Festival, Jess decides to seize the day and go along for the ride. Two weeks of glitz, glamour and exclusive entry into celeb-filled parties is just the kind of adventure Jess needs.

Reality soon bites though when Jess and Bryony find they're staying in a dingy hotel far away from all the action and Bryony's expenses budget barely covers a glass of local wine. Undeterred, the two women are determined to live like the elite and enjoy one fancy night out to begin their holiday. So what if they have to tell a few white lies along the way? It's just this once. No harm done . . . right?
