    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 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?! 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. *A review copy was provided to my by Escape Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. *Original pre Review* more like 3.25 stars Review to come. I do have some issues with this one, even though some of them are due to the overdose of romance I've taken lately, which reminds me, I would gladly accept recs of books with subtle to non existent romance (at the moment)

    I have a thing for Paris. I admit it. Even though I’ve only ever been to Disneyland Paris *glares at boyfriend* ONE DAY, I will get to the heart of Paris and Paris, I hope, will get to the heart of me. In the mean time however, I am happy to live vicariously through people like Beth Jenkins who admittedly is way more obsessed than I am about all things French. Girl is on a mission. Mostly to get to Paris but it doesn’t hurt that her French teacher is hot, and all Beth has to do is make him reali I have a thing for Paris. I admit it.

Mostly to get to Paris but it doesn’t hurt that her French teacher is hot, and all Beth has to do is make him realise how wonderful they would be together. All the while, a guy who is actually her own age falls into the story and he can see this potentially disastrous situation unfolding in front of his eyes. Through a comedy of errors, they end up spending quite a bit of time together and there might just be a bit more than concern coming from Zach. Green eyed monster, anyone? But will Beth give Zach a chance with Andre still in the picture? Does she even realise what’s going on? All this and more will be answered in the book! One of the things I loved about BONJOUR CHERIE is that it is only 87 pages BUT it is 87 pages of perfection. I never felt short changed or that the story didn’t reach a satisfying conclusion and the slow build up of romance was just right. This is a quick but cute read that took me about an hour to finish. Another refreshing aspect of the book was the setting. The title is somewhat misleading as the story takes place in Australia with some French elements added in of course. I will say that I’m not sure why the story had to be New Adult as it could easily work as a Young Adult book – it’s a clean read with no sexual situations in it that I can recall, just good old fashioned romance of the “I don’t really like you but it’s only because I really like you” variety. If you’re looking for a quick read and a cute, fun story then this is the book for you and just so you know, I would be more than happy to read more from this author, especially if her full length books are as good as this novella.

    Bonjour Cherie is a short, light-hearted story about a young woman’s obsession with all things French. I was after something short to read on my kindle, so when I saw that Robin Thomas had a new short story/ novella released with Escape Publishing I decided to download a copy. I loved her debut, High Stakes about a woman in the corporate world who finds unexpected romance. Bonjour Cherie, has a completely different feel, with a protagonist at the complete other end of the spectrum.

I loved her debut, High Stakes about a woman in the corporate world who finds unexpected romance. Bonjour Cherie, has a completely different feel, with a protagonist at the complete other end of the spectrum. Though it has some of the same wit I enjoyed from High Stakes, I found the protagonist, Beth to be far less likeable and a little dense at times. Beth works at the local IGA, forever in the shadows of her high-achieving sister, her only aspiration in life is to one day go to France. Only problem is that she has no money and fairly impractical plan to fulfil that dream. She’s kind of in love with her French teacher, Andrew LeBlanc and will go to any lengths to capture his attention. One person who has noticed Beth is her very blokey French class peer, Zach Mills, only Beth’s a bit too blind to see this. Beth stumbles across a serious of difficulties in her pursuit of making Andre fall in love with her and somehow, it’s Zach who is always there to pick up the pieces. I enjoyed the banter between Beth and Zach, though I do feel she was really quite judgemental of him when he’d only ever been nice to her. The late revelation about Andre was a little predictable and it was hard to believe that Beth didn’t discover this earlier. Overall, Bonjour Cherie was an easy way to pass the time and I could completely relate to Beth’s obsession with going to France, though not so much her lack of planning. However there was enough emotional growth by the end of the story for me to warm to Beth and to find the ending satisfactory. A short and sweet read by Australian author Robin Thomas.

    This was a very fun novella set in Australia that I really enjoyed. Being a novella I read this in a day and really loved the comedic aspect, with Beth’s no nonsense attitude and typical Australian responses, I highly recommend this for a light entertaining read.

Being a novella I read this in a day and really loved the comedic aspect, with Beth’s no nonsense attitude and typical Australian responses, I highly recommend this for a light entertaining read. Beth has dreamed of going to Paris her whole life and putting off going to college to fulfil her dream, has started taking a French language course. Beth has fantasized about her French teacher, Andre and is working up the courage to make her intentions known. She will not even look at another man because Andre is it! Week three in the course and in walks Zach Mills. Handsome and arrogant Zach immediately sets his sights on Beth. Beth refuses to acknowledge him and is still determined to get together with Andre. But when circumstances keep pushing them together, Beth has no choice but to realise how hot and alluring Zach is. Can Beth realise what is right in front of her nose instead of trying to get the attention of Andre? She is attracted to Zach, so why ignore it? Will Andre ever actually acknowledge Beth’s existence as more than a student? See how Beth copes and discovers who the real man she should be vying attention for. Bonjour Cherie has some surprises and fun installed and I can’t wait to find another enjoyable read by Ms Thomas.

    I liked this book a lot, although it could have been a little more developed toward the end. The big emotional climax felt too abrupt, and I didn't really "see" them fall in love. The Aussie references gave a nice flavor tot he story and I was never lost. The different terminology was always used in context. And, not to spoil anything, who didn't see that coming about Andre? I look forward to more from this author. I liked this book a lot, although it could have been a little more developed toward the end.

    *I will try to avoid spoilers. Bonjour Cherie by Robin Thomas Beth Jenkins is into a French craze! She loves everything from French cooking to her French teacher, Andre' LeBlanc. She is so obsessed with getting Andre's attention that she denies her connection with Australian Zach Mills to her friends and herself. Andre' is always polite and friendly toward her, but Beth believes they just need the right moment for things to lock into place between them. Zach asked her out and she turned him down.

    I read this in one night and enjoyed it immensely! I immediately connected to the French obsession, and loved Zach's character and back story. Although Beth was a smidge shallow, it made sense for her age and internal conflicts. Fun, flirty, and one I'll enjoy rereading! I read this in one night and enjoyed it immensely!

    Received a copy from Netgalley for review. Fun, quick and memorable. Beth is obsessed with all things French. Zach is out to learn a little French. Sparks fly between but only one way. Their interactions are funny and realistic, lots of sarcasm.
