Jamie has been dreaming of this summer forever: Of road trips and intensive art camps, of meeting cute boys with her best friend Jazz. What she didn’t count on was the car accident.
Exiled away from her family as her mother slowly learns to walk again, Jamie is sent to Provence and trapped in an isolated home with the French grandmother she has never met, the guilt of having almost killed her parents, and no Wi-Fi. Enough to drive a girl mad. That is, until, she finds an old letter from her father, the starting point in a treasure hunt that spans across cities and time itself. Somehow, she knows that the treasure is the key to putting her shattered family back together and that whatever lies at the end has the power to fix everything.
Armed only with a high-school-level of French and a map of train lines, she must enlist the aid of Valentin, a handsome local who’s willing to translate. To save her family, she has castle ruins to find and sea cliffs to climb; falling for her translator wasn’t part of her plan....

Feel good European adventure
I am a complete sucker for any book that takes an American girl and sends her to France. My enjoyment of this book was high. I really surprised myself by understanding almost everything Jamie said in French and even some of what the actual French people said in French (at 2x speed too) despite not having a French class in like 10 years!
Jamie's desire to find the "treasure" she thought her father had left her mother 17 years ago gave me definite 13 Little Blue Envelopes vibes and I was totally here for it. I loved her struggle to talk to people and their struggle to talk to her because I could 100% imagine myself acting the exact same way if I were to jot over to France right now. While this was kind of the main plotline of the book, I liked that other things happened as well. The romance (of course), the barbecue was such a cute scene, Jamie's home life.
A lot of this book had to do with people communicating to one another (or not). Learning how to listen to other people, how to move past specific events that have happened and communicating through them to be able to heal and come out the other side. The fact that Jamie had a hard time communicating some things was kind of annoying at times. I just wanted to shake her and tell her to shut up. After finishing the book though, I really think that was the point, and really made her turning point very powerful.
The ending was so satisfying and just made me feel so good.
Thank you to the author for providing me a copy of this audiobook!
