I have another French book to read. This one is titled In Another Life by Julie Christine Johnson and I'll be reviewing it for FranceBookTours, although I'm not sure of the day, some time in February because the book is scheduled to be released on Feb. 2.
After becoming a widow, historian Lia Carrer travels to southern France where she falls in love and becomes entangled in an old murder.
This book is set in Languedoc, the area that my husband and I hope to move to, so I'm looking
Here's the intro:
Eighteen months after her husband's death, Lia Carrer returned to Languedoc like a shadow in search of light. From inside the airport terminal's glass atrium, the gray blanket over Paris looked no different from the Seattle sky she'd left behind. But the City of Light was not her final destination. The high-speed train known as the TGV departed directly from Charles de Gaulle and would carry her five hundred miles south to Narbonne in fewer than five hours.
Once aboard the TGV, Lia sank into her reserved window seat. Echoes of jet engines and loudspeakers reverberated in her head, but the sounds of train travel -- doors opening and closing with a pnuematic whoosh, air slamming between passing cars -- reassured her that her journey was nearly over. She was back on solid ground. Soothed by the slight swaying motion of the moving train. Lia gazed out the window and allowed France to absorb her.
I really like this opening and hope the rest of the book sucks me in too.
I'm looking forward to finding out what you're reading.
