“She stood and took her place in front of the camera… It was now or never”
Bryony Masters has been looking for her long-lost sister, Hannah, for years, but when their father has a stroke her search takes on new urgency. So when primetime game show, What Happens in France, puts a call-out for new contestants, Bryony spots the ultimate public platform to find her reality TV-obsessed sister, and finally reunite their family.
With the help of handsome teammate Lewis, it’s not long before she’s on a private jet heading for the stunning beauty of rural France. With a social media star dog, a high maintenance quiz host and a cast of truly unique characters, Bryony and Lewis have their work cut out for them to stay on the show and in the public eye.
Yet as the audience grows and the grand prize beckons they find that the search that brought them together may just fulfil more than one heart’s wish…
What does TWG think?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of Carol with her pelvic floor exercises after having her daughter. Yes, I’m talking about me. No, I didn’t actually wet myself laughing. Yes, I was very close to doing so. Seriously – an unlikely pairing but an absolute gold dust of one. I adored them. Utterly hilarious!!
Despite the storyline being mostly humour based, there was an undercurrent of seriousness due to the situation with Hannah, and I felt that the entire situation was delivered in a poignant manner. I could sniff out the emotion behind it a mile off and, whilst I didn’t end up crying with emotion, it certainly made my heart break for all of those involved.
‘What Happens in France’ is such an uplifting, fun filled, hilarious read which had me keeping my legs crossed just in case. I adore Carol Wyer’s humour but I totally think she has outdone herself with the hilarity in this book – absolutely brilliant!!
