    4. I'm rather fond of Kat French's writing. And by rather fond I mean I bloomin' love. If I were to fangirl, she'd be the one I fangirled over.

    10. So Kat French (or Kitty French if reading her other books) has very quickly become a firm favourite of mine. Her books are endless buckets of fun and I was really looking forward to this latest one. To be fair when I started reading it I wondered what on earth was going on? A couple of chapters and we already had three women with a whole new adventure ahead of them? Where was the explanation and the background? Well, you see this is where the delectable Kat French comes into her own. She doesn't [...]

    11. This was the epitome of a great summer romance read for me.

Booking a short stay at Villa Valentina B&B on a small Greek island they find sun and gin-a-plenty, and a little bit of respite from the harsh realties of life. Somehow they find themselves back in England having gone thirds on buying the B&B and soon a [...]

    12. All reviews can be found on my blog at thewritinggarnet.wordpressBeing set in Greece, I was half expecting Shirley Valentine to show her face on the Island! Although saying that, Stella reminded me of good ol’ Ms.Valentine, I could imagine her saying ‘well tickle my tits ’til Friday’! Don’t you agree?I’m not sure what part of the novel I was sold on first; kick ass female characters, or a donkey named ‘ The Fonz‘. Could you get any more fab than that? Oh wait, the only thing that [...]

    15. Book Review - The Bed & Breakfast on the Beach by Kat French - 5 dreams of lazy days StarsSo I’d like to blame this book for my tardy review - I mean the ladies have just taught me the Island way of life and I’m just getting around to things when I can *drinks gin, twirls hair*. Ok not really. I read a page of this book a few weeks ago, realised I absolutely was not in the right frame of mind to read this and went and read some M/M instead. Because absolutely the last thing I ever want t [...]

    19. What a lovely, chilled, laid-back, fun book, just perfect for reading on a holiday, or even for making you feel as if you were on holiday, just getting away from it all.

    20. Kat French knows how to write incredible men (and books), I’ll give her that. Robinson in One Hot Summer, Gabriel in Love Your Neighbour (previously published as Undertaking Love), and Hal in My Perfect Stranger (previously published as The Piano Man Project). Now we have Jesse in this book. Good god he was amazing. He’s up there with my obsession with Robinson. Just yummy.Anyway, I loved Winnie, Stella and Frankie. They were feisty, determined, witty, and in need of a good turn in the lives [...]

    21. This book was such a sweet funny read. I'm a person who enjoys covers, and I thought this cover was gorgeous and very summery. This book sold me summer and it gave me summer. It made me feel like travelling to Greece and exploring the hidden places that I might find.Truthfully, I was expecting a very sickly-sweet romance, but what I got was a very female empowering and liberating sweet romance. The three best-friends have different lives with different problems and priorities, and this book has [...]

    24. A fabulous summer time beach read, a proper feel good tale of 3 close friends who have hit some of life's bumps simultaneously and escape to a little known Greek island escape to lick their wounds. A matter of weeks later they are back on the island having somehow managed to buy a slightly shabby B and B during their vacation.

    25. Oh my god. This book was amazing and the like at the top of the cover is so true; "escaping has never been so much fun". Loved this book so much and I literally felt like I was on the island for a short getaway.

    26. Three friends escape their grey British lives by going on a weekend trip to a remote Greek island. Several G&Ts later they have bought the small B&B they stayed at and move to Greece for good. Friendship, island gin, sunshine, sexy men, beach yoga, an ex-husband, a rock band, a Hero, and a donkey named "The Fonz" make this the perfect beach read.

    27. The thing that really stood out for me was how likeable this trio of women were - I wanted to be part of their little circle! They were all stepping out of their comfort zone by buying the B&B but gradually each of them found a new zone of comfort.The characters were well defined and so easy to visualise. The author absolutely got it right with such a fabulous mix of personalities, in fact there wasn't a single character that I disliked. By the time I reached the end of the book I was reluct [...]

    28. This is such a fun little book!Kat French never disappoints when it comes to characters and dialogue, and this book is no exception. I loved the interactions between the friends and the locals on their little Greek island, and I couldn't think of a better book to read on a sunny vacation. If you're looking for something light and breezy, look no further!*I received an ARC in return for an honest review*

    29. The Bed and Breakfast on the Beach was the first book I had read by Kat French but it won't be the last judging on how much I enjoyed this fun read which is perfect for the summer months. I'll admit there was a slight trepidation in reading this as it was my third consecutive book featuring a bed and breakfast at its centre. Although I love books with a certain theme I wondered what could Kat French bring that would make me love this book just as much if not more than the other two I had read? W [...]
