Talk about a wild emotional ride! I cried, I laughed, I swooned, I seethed, I even pinched my face up tight wishing I could jump in the pages to give a certain character or two a little piece of my mind.
Kate is a successful, driven English teacher who has been promoted to head of the department. Unfortunately, her husband Danny doesn't share the excitement of her well earned success. He is nothing but a jealous, bitter, emotionally abusive alcoholic. After being let go from his own career he has allowed himself to downward spiral to a very ugly place... Eventually Kate has enough of the abuse, and of mentally and financially supporting a man who treats her like dirt.
Kate takes a trip to France to stay with a friend and make an attempt to clear her head and decide what to do about her clearly failed marriage. She winds up colliding into Nicholas, a man that is practically every women's dream. He's respectful, sexy, romantic, and very very successful! They are drawn to one another in an almost incomprehensible way. They spend blissful time together in Paris, only confirming what Kate already knows deep down. Her marriage to Danny will never make it.
A few things that I love about Kate is that she does what she has to for herself. She distances herself from what she needs to in order to get her thoughts together and take care of her responsibilities in life. She's mature, and has a very strong sense of work ethic. She doesn't just go running back to her husband and lie to him about her affair. Rather she stays away, and it only takes her a few months to file for a much needed divorce.
The only thing that I wasn't particularly fond of about the story, and about Kate, is the fact that she insisted on distancing herself from Nicholas and withholding very HUGE information from him! Half the time I just wanted to shout at her "Come on!!! Just tell him EVERYTHING!" I don't want to get into exactly what I wanted her to tell him because I hate spoilers, but lets just say it was more than just one thing. Aside from with holding the fact that she was married, she also refused to keep him in the loop with one thing after another once their blissful week was over. Her secrecy drove me insane...
On a different note, in regards to Kate's secrecy, it totally worked for the story and kind of held everything together, in order to deliver an epic ending!! Yes I said EPIC!
A stranger in France is an excellent read! I will definitely be exploring more of Kim Knight's books!
A lovely modern-day fairy tale, told in an interesting style with different narrators; torn between gloom and doom and a deep and pure love, the heroine makes us feel with her and wish for a happy ending with her Prince Charming. Kim Knight definitely is a new talent on the rise in romantic fiction!
