J.C. and the Bijoux Jolis by Katy Regnery

Series: Blueberry Lane 3, The Rousseaus #3

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½ Katy Regnery’s writing is just wonderful. She brings out emotions and truly makes you feel how the characters are feeling. I found it refreshing how “grownup” J.C. acted. Ready to man up, apologize and do the right thing. I loved watching him process his feelings and come to terms with the fact that he did want more in life. I always enjoy when the womanizer finds the one to make him change his ways… but this time, I actual felt that his thoughts and emotions reflected a more honest dialogue about how it came about.

Libitz was a strong, caring, smart, down-to-earth woman, and a perfect match for Jean-Christian. They had great banter, they fought dirty at times, which was kinda fun to watch, and even more so when they started falling for each other. I really enjoyed this story!

This is book 3 in The Rousseaus - Blueberry Lane 3 series and even though I have not read the books that precede this one (other than one way back in the Blueberry Lane 1 series) I feel this book can easily stand on its own. I look forward to reading all the other books in Regnery's back list!

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

The first two books in the Rousseaus series are:
Jonquils for Jax, The Rousseaus #1
Marry Me Mad, The Rousseaus #2


The Blurb:

Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows? Katy Regnery's New York Times bestselling Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings in 2016!

If the best man and maid of honor are both single, it’s practically an unwritten rule that they should pork. 

…so begins a rocky acquaintance between Jean-Christian “J.C.” Rousseau and Libitz Feingold at the wedding of J.C.’s brother and Lib’s best friend. While manslut best man J.C. is surprised when maid of honor Libitz soundly spurns his advances, his curiosity is piqued. The girl he couldn’t have becomes the only one he wants.

So, when he finds a seventy-year-old portrait in the attic of his sister’s mansion that bears an uncanny resemblance to the prickly gallery owner, he enlists her help in solving a mystery seven decades in the making. Traveling from Philadelphia to New York to Marseille, a couple who started off as enemies will discover that even cynics can find true love…and mortal man is no match for destiny.
