Publisher's Summary

Would you have the courage to restart your life - and give love a chance - in a completely different country?
Vida Toujours has struggled all of her life, working hard for everything she's ever earned, using her all-consuming job as a Chicago doctor to numb herself against the emptiness she carries inside. Overprotective of her heart, Vida pushes people away, and despite her loneliness, she's made an art of remaining detached and disconnected. Then she receives an unexpected letter from France.
An aunt that Vida never knew she had has died, willing Vida a chateau in the French countryside. What feels like an impossible dream is now Vida's reality: She's an heiress, and the last living member of a family legacy steeped in secrets.
When Vida arrives at the chateau, there are more surprises in store for her. She could never have predicted the effect that Renee Chanson, the fiery and captivating woman she meets at the chateau, would have upon her. And she could never have imagined how the decades-old mystery of her family's past would, at last, unfold.
Can Vida learn to trust and open her stubborn heart to the possibility of a French romance? Or will she make the same mistakes her mother made and let the love of her life run away from her, leaving her to nurse a permanent broken heart?
French Lessons is a poignant, passionate novel about coming to terms with the past and learning to love; a tender romance to curl up with.

A book for the Imaginative, Romantic Soul.

For those of you that allow a novel to be a great escape and don't stop to nitpick at the probability of occurrences, then this book is for you. I enjoy books that take me away from daily stressors and this one did the trick. I found the two main characters quite captivating. secondary characters were a mystery I couldn't wait to solve.
A journey well worth taking.

Great stoytelling by a wonderful narrator

I truly enjoyed this book. the narration is one of the best I've heard. I will listen again just because of the narration.
As for the character I really enjoyed them each have their story to tell. it was a little mystery to solve that had a twist or two in there that I hadn't guessed which was fun when they revealed themselves.
Maybe I'm just a forgiving person so Renee's feeling that she did something so wrong it would ruin their relationship didn't quite fit for me. Although, it wasn't necessarily unbelievable just more than what i would do. Though it did set it up for the anticipated end.
I liked the premise for this story too. it was funny and sad and flirty. definitely would recommend.
