Blog Tour: Catch Me If You Cannes (Part 2) by Lisa Dickenson

As part of the Catch Me If You Cannes blog tour, I'm posting a weekly review of each part. This week I'm sharing my thoughts on Part 2!

In Part 1 of Catch Me If You Cannes, we are introduced to Jess and Bryony, two best friends who are in Cannes for the film festival. Jess and Bryony have concocted a few teeny white lies to fit in with the glamorous new friends they have made and Jess had met the lovely, yacht-owning Leo.

I loved Part 1 of the book as it was a lot of fun - and Part 2 is no different. Jess likes Leo and although they don't know that much about each other (yet), they're having a great time together. I really like the chemistry between Jess and Leo; it's fun and flirty but so natural too. The pair have an ease about them, as though they have known each other forever and I really hope things work out well for them. I get the feeling Leo is keeping something quite significant back from Jess and I'm looking forward to delving into Part 3 to find out what this may be!

As well as the chemistry between Jess and Leo, I'm really enjoying the strong friendship of Jess and Bryony. They're quite different in personality, but they work and obviously care about each other a lot. The have so much fun together (their conversations are so funny!) but you know that if either of them needed a cuddle or a good cry, the other would be there instantly to offer support (and wine).

So far, Catch Me If You Cannes has been an amusing read and I can't wait to find out what happens next!

About the author
Lisa Dickenson was born in the wrong body. She was definitely meant to be Beyoncé. Despite this hardship, she grew up in Devon attempting to write her own, completely copyright-infringing versions of Sweet Valley High, before giving Wales a go for university, and then London a go for the celeb-spotting potential. She's now back in Devon, living beside the seaside with her husband and forcing cream teas down the mouths of anyone who'll visit. She is sadly still not Beyoncé.

Lisa's first novel, The Twelve Dates of Christmas, won the Novelicious Debut of the Year award. Her second novel, You Had Me at Merlot, was also an instant hit with readers who were won over by her wit, charm and naughty sense of humour.
