One Summer In Monte Carlo by Jennifer Bohnet


Monte Carlo means different things to different people; a billionaires’ playground, overflowing with glitz and glamour but also where dangerous secrets hide.

For Nanette Weston, and her then fiancé, F1 racing driver Zac Ewart, their dream life came to an abrupt halt 3 years ago following a car accident which Zac walked away from, but left Nanette being airlifted back to the UK, never to return and never to see her fiancé again.

Monte Carlo was a place she wanted to forget, not revisit. But when her friend and employer, Vanessa asks Nanette to look after her children in the Principality for a few months, Nanette knew she had no choice but to return.

As the F1 circus once again comes to town, with Zac in pole position, mistakes of the past, leave legacies for the future…

My review

It’s not all glitz and glamour in Monte Carlo, and neither are the lives of stars and famous people. This book shows you both sides of these places and people: Monte Carlo with its seedy side, and the less attractive side of an admired racing driver. Things are not what they seem.

Atmosphere is the main strength of this novel, and all the settings we are taken too are vividly depicted for us.

We have an interesting, varied range of characters, some of whom we warm to more quickly than others, but that’s only to be expected when we’re seeing them warts and all.

An enjoyable, thoughtful novel.
