Arsago And now she was travelling through France with him Despite theassurance those five years had brought her both professionally andpersona. There’s an air traffic control strike and Olivia is trying to tell her cousin Bridget that she won’t be able to make it to France to be at her wedding Olivia has tried every possible way to get to France but it’s impossible‘Bollocks’ Bridget says ‘Leave it with me I’ll sort something’ And she does While it takes ages for us to get to meet Bridget I’m going into an early digression to reveal how much I love her Bridget when first encountered in the flesh is wearing fluro pink jeans Olivia goes on about her clothes a lot and she wears some amazing things which I loved and thought Olivia was being nana ish about Bridget is great at sorting people out she’s loyal and warm and fun but tragically she’s forever barred from being a romance heroine herself because she’s pregnant and planning to marry the father of her baby although she doesn’t love him She gets a fairly stupid resolution but hopefully ends up happyOlivia is 23 and a successful interior designer This makes absolutely no sense At 18 she ended her modelling career in the middle of heartbreak to take over her family’s struggling reproduction furniture and when she threw some lengths of cloth over some chairs people thought she was some kind of decorating savant so she just ran with it I’m fairly sure what happens is that clients walked into the drab beige apartments she styled for them and made a kind of face before telling her they loved it After she leaves they probably turn to each other and mutter ‘what were we thinking’ They weren’t thinking They relied on the fact that she was a pretty girl and therefore must know what she’s on about I’m pretty sure any client referrals that kept her business going were driven by revenge This is plausible given Romancelandia is powered by revenge and needs a lot of ‘I know let’s recommend her to the Andersons to redo their kitchen It will be a fitting revenge for that time I got sick on the cheap sherry Sheila Anderson serves’Before Olivia was 18 she was a child I mean obviously but the rest of her CV includes leaving convent school at 16 to go to Cordon Bleu cookery school and then getting discovered as a model She’s already sort of famous when she meets Raoul Raoul is 30 and French which isn’t a promising start When Olivia finishes modelling with a horse Raoul gives her a lift back to London and takes her out to dinner and tells her he’s in love with her Olivia doesn’t uite believe him She wants to go to bed with him although this is also a bit fraught because he’s correctly diagnosed her hymen status and she’s sure he’s used to expert level partnersAbout a week later Olivia is thrown out of her flat by Lucille who is in a furious face slapping mood when she discovers Olivia has a modelling contract she wants Lucille knows Raoul and is all ‘hi Raoul I’m going to pretend you’re my boyfriend pay no attention to the slapped girl in the corner’ and Raoul’s all ‘you never change Lucille you slut and that slapped girl is going to be my wife’So Olivia goes home with Raoul and gets into bed with him and they have a lovely romantic month together Raoul gets her another flat but there’s sexy times and they are both into it Then Raoul has to go to the US for a month Raoul makes wine in France and he has to go to Napa Valley where they also make wine for a month of wine related work When he gets back he ghosts her Olivia tries calling him but the phone is always engaged Finally she heads over to the flat and who should answer the door Lucille should answer the door Raoul’s voice is calling for her in the background and Lucille is all ‘hah ha Olivia’ And ‘I’ll be there soon darling’ To Raoul The next day she phones Olivia demanding the return of the sapphire and diamond engagement ring Olivia sends it on and then ends up going to New York for a modelling job but its the last one because she’s heartbroken and then she’s an interior designerThis is all ridiculous Raoul showing up at Olivia’s doorstep to take her to France is the first time she’s seen him in 5 years She’s also only now learning that he’s a vicomte He’s uncle to the man who impregnated Bridget and there are a number of charming and useless relatives living with him at his Château He’s now 35 but he’s still hot and he’s behaving a bit strangely in their interminable trip through the French countryside because he seems to be implying that Olivia is responsible for their breakup But that can’t be rightRaoul also loves to drop bombshells He got married he tells Olivia on their road trip His wife is dead and he doesn’t want to talk about it he tells her later Oh and here’s his daughter he says when they finally get to the ChâteauOlivia spends the car trip which Raoul extends from about 6 or 7 hours to 2 days by introducing car trouble and stopping every few hours for drinks or picnics crying and napping She cries at night and naps during the day As soon as she gets to the Château she gets sent to bed and I was going to make a number of snarky comments about 23 year olds and nana naps but then Mary Lyons has Olivia point out to herself that she takes a lot of naps for a young person so I can’t really Damn you Mary Lyons It was such a perfect thing to be snarky about too because Olivia is always going on about stuff like an old person and why do heroines need so many naps when they aren’t actually doing any sexy times They can’t store up sleep it doesn’t work that waySo Raoul’s daughter is cute and of course Olivia is going to end up with a domestic job but the daughter has a nanny so instead Olivia is lumped with cooking duties Raoul’s servants have all come down with the flu His sister who is competent has broken both her legs and everyone else is hopeless and can’t cook Bridget who is a star points out that when Olivia grumbles that while Olivia is doing meals Bridget’s looking after servants with the flu which takes the wind out of Olivia’s martyr sails and is another reason to like Bridget and wish she were the star Bridget wouldn’t be caught dead nappingRaoul gets in a few irresistible kisses and further implications that Olivia has done him wrong but Olivia’s having none of it especially when his girlfriends start showing up One of them is only 18 and Raoul is very huffy about the implication that he would go for her you know because it’s only ok to do that before your 31st birthday and the other one is Lucille Cutely Lyons makes Lucille look nervous about seeing Olivia again because of course she’s responsible for tearing Raoul and Olivia apart and for making Raoul believe that Olivia had broken things off with him Raoul comes off really badly in this story because the reason he didn’t go after Olivia when he was back in London was that he had glandular fever It’s very contagious It takes a long time to recover I had a giggle about this because I remembered Georgette Heyer’s ‘The Grand Sophy’ where Sophy lectured Cecilia’s intended for getting the mumps and leaving Cecilia open to an infatuation with Augustus Fawnhope useless poet Men who want to marry their beloveds shouldn’t come down with infectious complaints is Sophy’s reasoning and of course she’s absolutely correct Plus glandular fever was also once known as the kissing disease and it’s ridiculous in that context to give it to the hero and give it to him as proof that he wasn’t cheating More to the point though I’m not buying that true love can double ghost out of an engagement One of them should have put on their hard knocks pants and kept making the attempt to dramatically confront the other in person with the betrayal of their great love That neither of them did makes it all seem half heartedRaoul does reveal that he’s orchestrated bringing Olivia back into his life so he gets a couple of points for that And even wishing that Olivia hadn’t taken up naps as a hobby and that Bridget was the heroine and knowing how flimsy the separation was I still liked this book It has a certain entertainment value and a lot of charm
