It's nice

Bonjour Cherie - Robin Thomas

As can also be seen on The Accidental Reader

 

Bonjour Cherie is this cute short story romance that has a bubbly heroine's voice. Beth, with her obsession to all things french and her foolish determination, is hard not to love.

 

However, that and the guy's niceness are the only thing I liked about this book. 

 

Yes, it has funny moments but as times it dragged too long (which says a lot for a short story)

 

Yes, the wrap up was nice and the author didn't go overboard with anything, but....For such a short read it failed somewhere very important to me- characterisation and love. 

 

All the characters are exactly what they appear to be from start, there's nothing to be explored about them. 

 

Also the whole thing happens in about 2 weeks, and yes, some people might fall in love in such short a time. But when the story ended with 'I love you's I couldn't help but being suprised. 

 

They didn't date, they barely talked and all of sudden they said they loved each other. WTF?!

 

What the Fuck?

 

because I didn't  feel  the love. Yes, there was attraction. Yes, they liked each other (So what? I like my neighbour *NOM NOM NOM*), and there was something- something that just might develope to love if given enough time. But it wasn't there yet!

 

In conclusion- while it was OK, while it was good I can't help thinking there are better.
