Book Blurb


In A Stranger in France readers are taken on a fast paced, modern day romantic journey, that spans across the city of London, the glitz and glam of France, and the beautiful English coast. There’s enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat turning pages.

Career driven and successful thirty two year old Kate Brown travels to southern France to visit her best friend Tanya Adams, for a well deserved short break, and to forget her worries in London. Her path crosses with tall, dark, devilishly handsome and wealthy Nicholas D’Coix. As a young man, Nicholas turned himself around and built an empire of wealth, he’s now one of Paris’ top three entrepreneurs. In a whirlwind of steamy romance Nicholas and Kate fall in love.

Kate returns to London leaving Nicholas behind and the two are still very much in love. Kate faces a few surprises of her own on her return to London. She makes a bold life changing move, to make the most of her life changing dilemma. Touching on real life issues these two strong characters battle it out, against all the odds in the name of love for a beautiful happy ever after.

This has made me remember how good reading a book makes me feel. I think you have definitely got the pitch right. The level of detail allows the reader to really engage with the characters whilst still leaving scope for imagination and suspense” –  from Des – received 13th June 2016, via email

” Great first book by an author who clearly understands romance, loving the first few chapters can’t wait for the rest” – From Elnazreceived 17th June 2016, via email



Hi Kim, I finally managed to read the first two and a bit chapters of your book. It has such a real feel although it’s a novel. There are many feelings/sentiments that Kate feels that many a woman can relate too. It has a great introduction and I am looking forward to the official release to hear about Nicholas and the joys of Marseille. Thanks much for sharing your great writing skill.

Dear Kim,

I would like to thank you for sharing this exclusive preview of the early chapters from your book.

It was a pleasure reading through them.

I always like a story around human relationships – the beautiful and then the not-so-beautiful aspects. And in these two and a half chapters I read, you seem to have mastered that art. The pain and the agony of Kate one gets to see in the first chapter is very real. You use situations that I am sure your readers will relate to. You show how our vain ego eats into our relationships. You show how in our everyday life, we start taking our partners fr granted. How the romance and the magic go missing. And how, even special days like the New Year or the Valentine’s Day start losing their significance, and partners walk dispassionately down our own paths. At the end of the day, it’s not spouses who are in conflict, but we give in to our own inner demons. And you bring that out brilliantly. I love the easy, lucid, freeflowing language. Especially, when your characters speak straight from the heart in their candid letters.

And then, in the second portion, I love the French holiday! You are spot on with your description and I found myself transported to that nice sunny world. The narration of the events that Sunday night inside the club is perfect. Very sensuous! Your characters start looking looking hot, mysterious, and I can’t wait to find out what happens on Kate’s date night. And the way you skillfully change the mood of the story in these two chapters is wonderful. I was in that journey with Kate myself!

Best wishes for your novel. Can’t wait to read all of it! – Joyce received via blog comment 13th July 2016.
