My Review:

This is a beautifully written book. As in the first in this series, the descriptions catapulted me right into the incredible scenery and made me feel as if I was there. I also love the use of French it brought out the authenticity of the story. The characters are wonderful and I found myself hoping for the best for everyone. I honestly couldn’t put this down and cannot wait for the next. This is a 5 star read and I highly recommend it.

Thank you to Aquintillion Reads for the opportunity to read and review this lovely book.

Review: Lost in Translation by Audrey Davis

Hi Everyone! Happy New Year!!!

I have to share with you one of the first books I have read in 2021! It was so good I couldn’t put it down!

Lost In Translation: A romantic comedy about starting over… by [Audrey Davis]

Back of the book:

Charlotte Egerton and family are off to Switzerland, after husband Dom bags a big-time job promotion.

But Charlotte isn’t exactly yodelling with delight at the prospect. Not since a chance discovery cast a shadow over her ten-year marriage. And navigating twisty Swiss rodas and getting to grips with French only adds to her woes…

Following a bumpy encounter with an arrogant German, Charlotte is far from convinced the expat life is for her.

With doubts about Dom — and concerns for her best friend, Ruth — plaguing her mind, will Charlotte embrace the Swiss way of life, or are some mountains just too hard to conquer?

Embark on a journey filled with laughter, tears and lessons in love. Sometimes you just have to seize the day…

Review:

My thoughts on this book is that it was fantastic!! I couldn’t put it down. I had to keep reading to find out what Dom was really up to! The imagery in this story is second to none. I always knew Switzerland was beautiful but while reading Lost in Translation I could see the snow capped mountains and feel the chilly air without ever having been there.

I highly recommend reading this! It will whisk you away to a beautiful country with a woman who must figure out what is happening in her life and how she deals with it (just a hint…Charlotte is awesome in how she handles things!)

Definitely 5 stars for this one!
