Free is so great when you are a book-phile. A quick press on my Nook download it button, and I was transported into Sabrina Jeffries short novella The French Maid.
Actually, more like a short story. I think it took me about twenty minutes to read. So it was perfect for a very sleepy evening when I needed a quick Rege-Rom fix.
The French Maid is a delightful little story about a magical French maid who knows just how to put the spark back into a marriage. With some very practical magic, and a little prodding, she manages to turn a lackluster love into a love affair.
It is a sweet story, with likable characters, surprisingly good emotional highs and lows (for such a short tale) and a whimsical feel perfect for reading before dream time.
Some intimate scenes and adult subject matter. The characters are a bit older, and the dilemma is centered around marriage so teens would probably find it boring.
(4.5 out of 5) Thoroughly enjoyed every bite, even if it was bite sized!
