Book Review: Losing the Light by Andrea Dunlop

We were given the opportunity to read Losing the Light by Andrea Dunlop.  Read below to find out what this book is about and to see what the Vise Library thought about it!

About the book:

A smart, obsessive debut novel about a young woman studying abroad who becomes caught up in a seductive French world—and a complex web of love and lust.

When thirty-year-old Brooke Thompson unexpectedly runs into a man from her past, she’s plunged headlong into memories she’s long tried to forget about the year she spent in France following a disastrous affair with a professor.

As a newly arrived exchange student in the picturesque city of Nantes, young Brooke develops a deep and complicated friendship with Sophie, a fellow American and stunning blonde, whose golden girl façade hides a precarious emotional fragility. Sophie and Brooke soon become inseparable and find themselves intoxicated by their new surroundings—and each other.

But their lives are forever changed when they meet a sly, stylish French student, Veronique, and her impossibly sexy older cousin, Alex. The cousins draw Sophie and Brooke into an irresistible world of art, money, decadence, and ultimately, a disastrous love triangle that consumes them both. And of the two of them, only one will make it home.
Brooke Thompson is on the way to the "perfect life" and is newly engaged.  However, her past has resurfaced when she unexpectedly runs into someone from her past.  That past consists of the summer that she lived in France and her friendships with Sophie, Veronique, and Alex while she was there.  Those friendships are not always easy, which is true to real life.  If you have ever wanted to visit France, then you will be in for a treat by experiencing it yourself.  You will be in for a surprise by the ending and I always think that makes for a great book!  I could not stop reading this book and had to devour it in one sitting.  This book is an amazing debut novel and I expect to see more from Dunlop!
