France Book Tours presents... FALLING FOR PROVENCE by Paulita Kincer - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we welcome France Book Tours as we feature a Women's Fiction title that hit virtual shelves just last month via Oblique Press.  We're whisking you away to Provence for some rest, relaxation, and perhaps the chance at love.  There's absolutely no trouble on the horizon.  Nope.  None at all...or okay, maybe a little.  *ahem*  Anywho, let's get between the pages of today's blog tour guest and ebook of choice...

Falling for Provence  
Falling For Provence
A New Life in Provence, Book 2
Paulita Kincer
Release date: June 5, 2020

About the book...
Running a French B&B isn’t all wine and smelly cheese, Fia Jennings discovers as she tries to create a new life for herself and a smooth path for her teenage twins, while not—absolutely not – falling into a new romance. But she didn’t anticipate a handsome stranger showing up on her doorstep and sucking her into an art caper with dangerous overtones. Can she make a new life in France or will she retreat to the States and her broken marriage?


Fia is just coming out of a marriage that ended in betrayal.  She's not ready to get back in the saddle for anyone, let alone a new man that's sparked her interest...or is she?  Enter the mysterious Ali, newly arrived in the area to speak at the local college regarding Mesopotamia culture, and art.  He's exotic, new, and certainly receptive to Fia's half-hearted attempts at flirtation, but is he being straight with her or should his evasive answers, and curious occupation be sending red flags?  After all, her marriage didn't simply end due to an unfaithful spouse, but rather an scheme to abscond with a WWII painting her relatives secretly held...her husband's poor choice was merely the cherry on the sundae.  Jilted and hesitant or watchful and weary...tick tock, tick tock!  There's only so much time to decide before things pass into the danger zone...

So, this was the second release in the New Life in Provence series, but I didn't really feel behind the curve.  You get enough glimpses into what transpired previously to land Fia and her kids where they are now that you'll be on the same page...but that page is rather unusual.  The story takes us along for the ride as Fia gets her feet back under her, trying to create a new life for herself and her family, while coming to grips with everything that happened not so long ago.  The monkey wrench of love being thrown in sends her a bit off course, but sometimes exploring those deviations from our chosen path can have AMAZING outcomes.  This time...umm, well, I can't REALLY tell you because it'll ruin the surprise, but let's just say that she DOES get closer to someone, while also cutting ties with several other someone's, and the ending sort of leaves you scrambling for solid ground.  I suppose a few of the loose ends of a sort were to allow for further installments to be added to the series, but the one regarding the actual theft or rescue (depending on how you few it) of the artifact, simply left me to wonder.  To me, it seemed to be more about the belief in the thing versus the actual thing itself, and how powerful that can least, that's how I took me, that'll make more sense when you read it.

In the end, I enjoyed my visit to Provence, but I'm not certain I'd want to call it home.  If you enjoy Women's Fiction with a bit of Mystery, and a dash of Suspense, this is definitely a book I'd check out!

Thanks so much for the review. It could have had a definite ending, but there's nothing magical in that.
