This is a fast paced amusing tale by the wonderful Carol Wyer.  The main characters are intelligent, charismatic and humorous and as we meet and get to know the other contestants they all have their own comedy value. What Happens in France held my attention although I am not generally a fan of comedy books this one is a good variation of romantic comedy with mystery and travel all mixed up together to keep you going one chapter to the next. Having read and very much enjoyed Carol Wyer's crime fiction novels I knew it was worth having a go at reading her lighter comedy - I am so glad I did - its great!! Thank you to NetGalley, Canelo and Carol Wyer for the opportunity to read and review this novel.

I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it. There are some authors whose books you just know you're going to love and Carol Wyer is one of them as far as I'm concerned. I love her sense of humour which really does have me laughing out loud but there's always more than just the humour in her stories. In this story it is the desperate desire of Bryony Master to discover and reconnect with her older sister, Hannah, who ran away from home when sixteen years old. Now their father has had a stroke and is always asking for Hannah. In her endeavour to gain more publicity to help find her sister, Bryony answers a call for new contestants on a game show which is being aired amongst much hype and is successful. So begins her journey to France, an eclectic mix of fellow contestants, the chance to meet and chat to one of her favourite stars and maybe the chance to finally discover her sister before time runs out for their father. The mix of contestants in the show is brilliant and they're a great bunch together. It is a behind the scenes look at game shows and has some fantastic fun escapades in it. As well as the mystery of her disappearing sister, there's also misunderstandings, a developing romance and surprises galore in this fabulous French adventure. It is a heartwarming story and I really do hope there will be a series of further books developing from this in future that I get to read! I have absolutely no hesitation in very highly recommending this amazing story to anyone looking for an engrossing fun read that'll definitely leave you with a smile on your face and some happy memories of just what happens in France!

Bryony Masters father has had a massive stroke whilst looking through some old photos. Her mum believes that he won’t make it through another and that this one was brought on whilst he was looking at pictures of Hannah, his daughter (Bryony’s sister) who ran away thirty years ago aged just sixteen. Bryony has an idea to help track Hannah and get her to her father before he dies. Hannah used to love game shows and watched them all the time, so Bryony is going to go on one and make an appeal to her sister to come home. With popular game show ‘What Happens in’ looking for contestants she decides to apply. The plot might not sound like it would be highly amusing, but by God it is. Bryony is a wonderful character. Very intelligent, charismatic and humorous too. She loves her family and has always felt responsible for Hannah leaving and is determined to find her, even setting up a blog and Facebook page to try to locate her too. We also meet Lewis, Bryony’s new friend and accomplice in the game show that is this week set in France and called ‘What Happens in France’. The show takes place over a week and is filled with different types of games, some quizzes and some physical. I must also take a moment to make a shout-out to Jim and Oscars pet dog, Pug Biggie Small who is a superstar with his own Instagram account. The book kept me engaged the whole way through, the characters were perfectly realistic and the game show certainly something I would watch. I love how it was written in date form and also included the blog posts that Bryony put up speaking directly to her sister, hoping that she would see them. If you like comedies then this is definitely the book for you. It has lots of laugh-out-loud moments and will make you smile the whole way through.
