Review: Rendez-vous in Cannes
A sweeping, bittersweet love story amidst the glitz and the glamour of the French Riviera.
Two very different women are starring in their own real-life dramas behind the scenes of the Cannes Film Festival.
Newly in love, Anna Carson returns to the Festival for the first time in nearly 40 years hoping to reconcile her past with her present-day happiness.
Journalist Daisy Harris is looking for a big scoop at her first Festival and is determined to embrace her new single status amongst all the glitz and glamour.
Behind the champagne and parties, secrets from the past are bubbling to the surface and difficult decisions need to be taken.
One thing's for certain - by the end of the Film Festival their lives will have changed forever…
We all know that I love a good film festival. Cannes is always so glitzy - the exact opposite of the homespun Sundance Film Festival here in Utah. All the glam thrills me - that's probably why I co-author the Liv Bartlet books, which take a gritty behind-the-scenes look at the life of two young producers.
So I really enjoyed the sharks swimming among the pages of this book. The characters were relatable for this lover of all things film-related. I really enjoyed the pairing of a young hopeful with a seasoned (and saddened) professional.
Yeah, this book was up my favorite alley. If you can't resist the Oscars and wished LA Confidential had been more about the stories and less about the murders, then this book is also for you.
About Jennifer Bohnet
For three years she wrote a newspaper column in The South Hams Group of Newspapers (Devon)where she took a wry
look at family life. Since living in France it is her fiction that has taken off with hundreds of short stories and several serials published internationally. if you like stories set down on the French Riviera, Antibes, Cannes and Monaco, then take a look at Follow Your Star and Rendezvous in Cannes. Her other books too have passing references to the South of France.
Allergic to housework and gardening she rarely does either but she does like cooking and entertaining and wandering around vide greniers (the French equivalent of flea markets) looking for a bargain or two. Her children currently live in fear of her turning into an ageing hippy and moving to Totnes, Devon.
