The Mysterious Bakery On Rue De Paris by Evie Gaughan

I received this copy from Evie Gaughan in exchange for an honest review. So here it goes!

Edith Lane has had enough with her life in Ireland and decides to take a leap into the unknown by moving to France. Even though this means leaving her father behind, Edith knows she needs a new challenge, one she might be able to find in the vintage French bakery she managed to get a job at. Yet, when Edith arrives at the small bakery on Rue De Paris in the antique town of Compi├Ęgne where she thought she was going to be in actual Paris, she isn’t exactly welcomed with open arms by the owner. But Edith is determined to give it her best shot and before she knows it, she is learning all about the mysterious ins and outs of the bakery while trying to figure out her own life and wishes at the same time.

Edith also gets to know a gorgeous man of course. I felt like their feelings for each other developed a little to quickly, but it was a real pleasure reading about them. Unfortunately, Hugo is not who Edith thought he was in the beginning.  While reading this book, in my mind, I could clearly see the beautiful and charming French cobblestone streets with the timber houses, they were brought to life so perfectly & could even smell taste the lovely  treats that were been made daily in the bakery.

This book is a heart warming story about love, friendship and the liberty to find the right thing in life with some humor thrown into the mix and with many twists and turns.  It is nicely written and the story flows easily & it was so easy to get lost in.

Thank you to Evie Gaughan via Margaret Madden for allowing me to read and review this book. This book is available on Kindle.
