You Me Everything by Catherine Isaac

Thrilled to share a mini review for a book read from my Kindle after too long in my TBR pile.


Jess and her ten-year-old son William set off to spend the summer at Château de Roussignol, deep in the rich, sunlit hills of the Dordogne. There, Jess’s ex-boyfriend and William’s father, Adam, runs a beautiful hotel in a restored castle. Jess is bowled over by what Adam has accomplished, but she’s in France for a much more urgent reason: to make Adam connect with his own son. Jess can’t allow Adam to let their son down because she is tormented by a secret of her own, one that nobody – especially William – must discover.

By turns life-affirming, heart-wrenching and joyful, You Me Everything is a novel about one woman’s fierce determination to grab hold of the family she has and never let go, and a romantic story as heady as a crisp Sancerre on a summer day.

My thoughts:

After reading my first Catherine Isaac book a couple of months ago (Messy Wonderful Us), I finally got around to reading this book which has been sat on my Kindle for quite a few months.

This book is a voyage of discovery for Jess who travels to France with her son William, to spend a summer holiday with her ex/his dad, Adam. The story covers topics such as friendships, illness, addiction, keeping secrets and lack of communication, but overall is an uplifting read about the importance of love.

The majority of the story is set in France, at Adam’s holiday resort. As this is the nearest I will have to travelling there this year during the worldwide lockdown, the descriptions of the places to visit and the food, were much appreciated. This was the perfect book to read in a sunny back garden on a bank holiday weekend.

I must admit that Messy Wonderful Us is still my favourite book by Catherine Isaac, but this is a very close second.
