Book Review: Summer At The French Cafe By Sue Moorcroft


As soon as Kat Jenson set foot in the idyllic French village of Kirchhoffen, she knew she’d found her home. Now she has a dreamy boyfriend, a delightful dog and the perfect job managing a bustling book café in the vibrant Parc Lemmel.

But when she learns her boyfriend isn’t all he seems, it’s the start of a difficult summer for Kat. Vindictive troublemakers, work woes and family heartache follow, and the clear blue sky that was her life suddenly seems full of clouds.

Then she gets to know the mysterious Noah, and her sun begins to shine brighter than ever. But Noah has problems of his own – ones that could scupper their new-found happiness. Together, can they overcome their many obstacles, and find love again?


Perfect summer read! I really enjoyed this novel. I found it warm and cosy to read out on a sunny day even though we have just entered spring.

As you start off the novel we are in a French town called Kirchhoffen. The main character Kat is basically running the book cafe. Books and snacks, what a great combination for a cute store set up. It doesn’t take long before you are welcomed with all the characters getting yourself familiar with them. A main character would you believe is a dog.

Kat and Angelique definitely encounter their fair share of drama. I really did not like some of the male characters in this novel straight away you could tell they were not good people and for some, were hiding something.

Some twists and turns throughout this novel in some aspects that you would not believe would happen to Kat. I enjoy how her relationship with her family including her brother Solly does improve. I loved how karma finally won with people getting what they truly deserved especially those that are controlling that shouldn’t expect to control others.

Overall, this summer romance is easy to get into, you begin to know the characters without it being complicated making it the perfect summer read as there is enough drama in a light way to make it a read that you must finish whilst being a warm read for the summer!

Thank you to the publishers for sending me this in exchange for an honest review.
