French Toast Review

I enjoyed this book a lot because it almost felt like a friend was talking to me about her life. The main character Sydney is super personable and I truly enjoyed her humor and references to pop culture. (Who doesn't enjoy a very specific reference to Mr. Darcy?) 
I know that this book, and the other two in the series, are based on the author's own life and I would love to know just how true to life they are! I also really liked that even since I had not read the first one, that I was able to fully enjoy this book. But I can assure you, I will DEFINITELY be reading the other two! So if you want a very pleasurable read that is easy to read and highly entertaining and full of lots of emotion, pick this book up!

Glynis never expected in her wildest dreams to be a writer. After thirteen years in the Human Resources Industry, she decided to stay at home with her two amazing sons. Ever in search of a project, she was inspired to write the story of how she met and married her wonderfully romantic French husband, Sebastien, in six short months. The end result became her first novel, French Twist.

As this novel is only the beginning the story, Glynis has just released the sequel, French Toast and has begun writing the final chapter in the trilogy, French Fry. When she is not writing, she is trying to keep the peace amongst the three men and two cats in her life, finding missing body parts (Lego pieces are small!), supervising a myriad of homework assignments and keeping a tenuous hold on her sanity by consuming whatever chocolate is in the vicinity.
