The Right Fit has a comical start, great background stories to the characters and a sweet ending. It's an easy read. Maxine and Antony find love in an unexpected place. Neither are looking for it and it creeps up on them. Maxine needs to learn to trust but Antony hasn't been completely honest.
I really enjoyed this book. It ticks all my boxes. I liked the miscommunication in French/English. Laurent makes a great leading character and Maxine is a fun character. She's a bit of a klutz but not in a cringeworthy way. I will definitely look out for other books by this author.
5 out of 5.
