Meet Fern Dodelbach. Well-meaning, hapless, and often off-base, Fern would do anything for her friends even if it means looking like a fool, a not uncommon experience in her life.
In FRENCH TOASTED, when her wild-child, movie-star cousin Celia arrives in Paris unannounced, it’s all Fern and her friends can do to keep their cool. Which they don’t. Over-the-top antics ensue, including an over-frisky dog incident, an audition for the part of Queen of the Zombies, and Fern's undying crush on her roommate Theo, a delicious expat painter. When the smoke clears, and the clothing tatters fall where they may, will Fern still be standing tall and proud? Or will The Curse of Celia reduce her to a shambles?
FRENCH TOASTED is the second novella in the Broads Abroad Series, serving up a complete story of 25,000 words of laugh-out-loud fun.

This is such a cute, funny story! I love how Gwen takes a story line that is unique and then twists it a little more. Don't miss this charming novella about friendship, competition and who really wins any contest--I'd read it again!
I'm loving this series. I read the first story and wanted another hit of Fern and her loopy thought processes. She and her "broads abroad" are like a combination of Bridget Jones and Absolutely Fabulous, but in their twenties. Hilarious losers who get into funny scrapes! Love it.
