La Vie en Bleu – Jody Klaire

Jody Klaire – La Vie en BleuI noticed Jody Klaire’s new book Above and Beyond Series, Untrained Eye, is due out about now which reminded me I hadn’t reviewed her romcom La Vie en Bleu that was out last August.

La Vie en Bleu is an absolutely lovely read. It is well written, humorous and full of excellent human observation combined with an interesting version of the classic re-united lovers romance. It is very different from the Above and Beyond Series, but like all Ms Klaire’s work is extremely well done.

Pippa has settled, she is with a man she doesn’t love living a life she doesn’t like, because what she wanted was too scary. When her past is forced upon her the passion she left behind is impossible to ignore. The only question is whether she will have the courage to go back, to claim what is hers for the taking, and admit she was wrong.

Jody KlaireMs Klaire manages to get the ‘will she wont she’ tension in on several levels while nothing is over the top. The main characters are likeable and whole, faulty and human. The matching pair of best friends add a huge amount of fun to a romantic comedy worthy of a Hollywood script, and the background is ably filled by a beautiful setting and a loving village life.

Definitely a “highly recommended” for those who like a light-hearted romance, I look forward to more of the Romantic Ms Klaire.
