Edna and Genevieve Escape From Curmudgeon Avenue Curmudgeon Avenue Book Three by Samantha Henthorn
When Genevieve Dubois returned to Curmudgeon Avenue, this opened up the opportunity for Edna to realise her long held dream of escaping to France. But as Edna embraces all things European, Genevieve appears to be shying away from her French roots. Meanwhile, returning to Curmudgeon Avenue for the third time, the wind had blown in the truth about the tall, handsome stranger and although Harold and Edith had been relieved to discover that he is neither an elephant detective, nor a fraud investigator, Toonan had been a little disappointed that he was not interested in her either. Matteo Dubois was looking for his mother, Genevieve Dubois, and although he did not find her on Curmudgeon Avenue, you have probably guessed that he is about to cause a disturbance- FINALLY! There is hope that the set of nincompoops that live here currently will move out, and leave me in peace! Edna had already escaped with Genevieve to France, which was a real shame for me, because Edna was one of the less annoying ones. This delightful third off-beat comedy romance book in the Curmudgeon Avenue series will make you smile.
Edna and Genevieve Escape from Curmudgeon Avenue is the third installment in the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I have read the first book and must say I skipped to this book as I received it as a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion and it is even better than I imagined. However, I am definitely going back to read book 2. So, before I proceed with my review, I want to urge you to go out and buy all three books. I am certain you will not regret your decision.
Alright now, as to this novel, it is funny, quirky and well-written with all of the ingredients needed for a great read. You can’t help but fall in love with Edna and Genevieve as they definitely command all your attention.
You find yourself cheering for Mr. Dubois as he finally causes a disturbance and for Edna and Genevieve as they have escaped to France. I definitely like their way of thinking - bread twice a day, plus cheese and wine - how can you go wrong?
From the beginning of the story I was laughing as they turn a rain storm into a delightful adventure. And, when the landlord finally arrives saying they should have escaped in a boat they think he is suggesting they take a bath, hysterical.
Laughter is not reserved only for Edna and Genevieve. You will laugh along with Harold, Edith, Wantha and Ricky. The characters are all quite enjoyable.
The end comes with an unexpected twist... as the saying goes... things happen in threes.
I whole-hearted recommend this novel. I'll definitely be watching out for future installments.
I GIVE IT A 5 STAR: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
