“The Little French Bistro” is a mesmerizing novel that needs to be added to your summer reading list. The beautiful descriptions of the French Rivera, the landscape, and the food will entice you to plan a trip or at the very lease enjoy a glass of wine with a baguette and dream of the area. Nina George’s new novel is filled with romance, passion and second chances.
Marianne is 60 years old and stuck in a loveless marriage. She tries to kill herself, unsuccessfully and instead finds her way to the sea and a new life. She begins working at the Ar Mor restaurant and meets the various characters in the town. There is Yann, the handsome painter, Genevieve, the restaurant owner, Jean-Remy, the chef at Ar Mor and many others.
Marianne for the first time in her life begins living with passion. She does a complete makeover of her wardrobe, her hair, and her makeup. She finds new love and no longer wants to end her life because it is now rich with relationships and interests.
However, her past does catch up with her, and that is when Marianne must make a choice whether to go back to her old life or continue with courage on her new path.
This is one of my favorite passages from “The Little French Bistro”:
“I don’t know why we women believe that sacrificing our desires makes us more attractive to men. What on earth are we thinking? That someone who goes without her wishes deserves to be loved more than she who follows her dreams?”
Pick up, “The Little French Bistro” and travel virtually to the French Rivera.
I received this book from Blogging for Books in order to write this review.

June 20, 2017
Gratitude is a powerful feeling that will raise your vibration and your energy. When your energy is vibrating at a higher frequency, you will attract more happiness, more love, and more abundance into your life. Gratitude is not ego driven. It is aligned with your true Inner Self and helps you remain in a state of grace. Learn and practice the magic of gratitude.
Think of gratitude like a magnet, and you are pulling more blessing toward yourself. Gratitude is felt in the heart, not the head. When you can remain in a state of gratitude, miracles will occur.
If you feel you are Blessed, more Blessings will follow.
Some days it can be very difficult to feel thankful for anything, but, that is when you dig deep and find something simple to be thankful for. It could be the way the light shines through a window. I could be the sound of the birds chirping in the morning. It could be the person that smiled at you today. It could be a beautiful cloud formation.
Today start a gratitude practice, and you will see positive changes in your life.
Try the ideas below:
1. Before you get out of bed in the morning, think of five things you are grateful for.
2. Keep a gratitude journal. Every day write down several things you are grateful for. Try not to repeat the items.
3. Get into the practice of smiling. Smile at the check-out person at the grocery store. Smile at the stranger that you pass on the street.
4. Write a letter to someone to thank them for their love or their help. How about thanking a former teacher that mentored you?
5. Keep a list handy throughout the day. Every time you feel blessed, write it down. Look it over at the end of the day. How does it make you feel?
Raise your vibration and your energy levels with gratitude. Use the laws of the Universe to work with you, not against you.
