I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of Anita Hughes newest book French Coast. It was the perfect read to get me out of this dreadful winter that we had here in Boston and ready for summer! it was my first read of Hughes and I was not disappointed. Her style of writing captured me from the first page to last, literally transporting me to the scenes of the Cannes, France. Without giving any spoilers the book starts in sunny San Francisco with its main character Serena who works for Vogue magazine. She has an amazing life here – amazing boyfriend, dream job, wonderful parents and a wardrobe to die for. When work calls and offers her a career changing assignment Serena knows she must go taking her to the French coast. Sand, sun, glamour and food to make your mouth water are the setting when she arrives and little does she know every aspect of her life is about to change. Hughes describes everything with the utmost detail making it hard for you to take your self away from the book. I actually felt like I was there, shopping the streets of France and walking with the warm sand through my toes.
French Coast was a light, fun read that is sure to keep fashionistas alike entertained and engaged. I will definitely be looking for more of Anita’s book as I can see she has an eye for fashion, glamour and fine detail. French Coast is one book that for sure should be in your beach bag this summer! Happy reading!
