Croissants and Jam by Lynda Renham

Croissants and Jam made me giggle, laugh, and chuckle with each chapter.  A romantic comedy for sure.

Annabel “Bels” Lewis has 2 days to get to her wedding in Rome where she is all set to marry the man of her mother’s dreams, handsome, successful, and rich.  From the beginning of her travels she finds herself part of one catastrophe after another  After missing her planes, Bels finds herself driving across France and England with Christian, an adventurous and handsome stranger. Christian  and Bels cross paths over and over causing many humorous mishaps These mishaps cause her to miss her initial meeting with her fianc├ęs parents and her rehearsal dinner. Will Bels make it to her wedding on time?

Croissants and Jam is a wonderful romantic comedy.  With each of Bels mishaps, starting with her misplaced boarding pass, I found myself laughing.  By the time the car breaks down my husband is wondering what I am laughing at.  I loved how Christian just rolled with whatever happen to Bels and himself, never getting really rattled just figuring out how to fix the problem.

This book was a fun read.  The scenic descriptions made me feel as though I was traveling with Bels and Christian through France and England.  The happily ever after ending was not what I expected, but was a nice surprise.

If you are looking for a light and easy read with plenty of laughs and a little romance this is definitely a book for you.
