Partly In A Scottish Castle in a Scottish castle on a in London and partly in a French chateau we see Caro take on the temporary role as companion to an irascible Scottish laird act in loco parentis to a fey young woman hell bent on seeing London and the rest of the world and hobnobbing with a famous Hollywood director and his delightful fianceOf course there were niggles typical Katie Fforde features like Caro having an uncanny understanding of smells she can even smell things she sees on TV FFS Also Caro s romantic interest spends at 80% of the novel apparently disinterested in her until he declares his undying love of course And the villain of the piece is clearly signalled from a great distance But overall I really enjoyed this these were only minor niggles and I really liked all the characters it was a fun sweet humorous read perfect for a holiday This was really bad Katie Fforde used to write witty and romantic reads with characters you really rooted for It s through a sense of loyalty that I keep reading her latest books even though they are mostly terrible All the usual Katie Fforde clich s are here a barge a Scottish estate some teenagers and some random Americans but there s no depth or warmth If you like great romantic fiction then try Rachael Lucas or Harriet Evans Even her editors couldn t be bothered to read this one it s Lucas or Harriet Evans Even her editors couldn t be bothered to read this one it s of typos and mistakes After reading every book written by Katie this will be my la. Thank goodness for Katie Fforde the perfect author.
READ À eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Î Katie FfordeRR Smith the story is themed around the art of bespoke perfume creation of course scent smell fragrance is an oft repeated reflection I loved it please KF and thank you for ALL THE PLEASURE I ve had from your stories over the years I am so disappointed I used to love Katie Fforde s books Her plots were interesting and funny the characters were engaging and they were a cut above most books in this genre However this is no longer true For the past few years the plots have
been becoming derivative the characters cardboard cutouts This last one thebecoming derivative characters cardboard cutouts This last one is the There are far too many coincidences and the characters are not strong enough to sustain the weaknesses in the plot Problems are immediately overcome even if it means a character has to change radically because she gets a young if improbable loverWhat has happened Is it ust the strain of having to produce a book a year I would prefer fewer better books and publishers please note if the books returned to their former standard the income stream would probably not suffer Reading Katie Fforde never disappoints You can t wait to get to the end of the story to find out what happens but feel really sad that it s o Another great book from Katie I always enjoy all the different people and places that are a part of the story in her books This is classic Katie Fforde I always love her boy meets girl girl falls in love eventually everything works out boy and girl together A slight twist on the above theme man and women togetherDelightful read
Three And A Halfand a half The ueen of uplifting feel good romance AJ PEARCE. St I have never cared less
about a bunch of dull caricatures Whatever love that is supposed to exist between the maina bunch of dull caricatures Whatever love that is supposed to exist between the main is so unbelievable and poorly developed that you couldn t care less whether they get together or not And as for the writing itself Horrendous Never has the word smell been so overused or so many clunky I think the earlier Fforde books are
bit better original less formulaic but so this was a pleasant read I love all of Katie FForde s books One thing that I like in particular is that her heroines are often of all ages I was very disappointed in this book As at least one other reviewer noted the plot was contrived the characters shallow and the dialogue not at all witty or amusing I too had waited for another book by the author having collected most of her other novels but this was a disappointment and seemingly out of character with the others in terms of plot writing style interesting characters in a sense everything Another great read I enjoyed it Henrietta Snow just as much as ALL the other books JF has a gentle hand with her plots a twisty and uncertain romance a range of enjoyable supporting characters and touch ofeopardy Each story rotates around a core theme here it s the recreation of a personalised fragrance once created for a 1930 s Hollywood star the recipe was thought destroyed I found the idea that remnants of that original perfume would be unchanged and not horribly musty some 90 years later a little far fetched But hey this is all about escapism so who cares AND to Miss. To bring comfort in difficult times She really is. ,A Bit Better Original Less Formulaic But
