#Trobairitz by @CMicklefield

Book One of the Trobairitz trilogy. Set in Languedoc, feisty truck driver, Weed never gives her personal details to other drivers. She avoids the intimacy of real friendship. Instead, she entertains the truckers by telling the story of ex-courtesan, seventy-six-year-old Catherine Joubert and the mysterious hold she has over young mayor, Henri-Claude Noilly and his grandfather.

In her private life, it’s so long since Weed had any fun with a man she wonders if all her bits still work but Jimi, one of the other drivers sets her senses tingling. A natural disaster at Christmas sees Weed and Jimi working together to deliver vital supplies but will Weed be able to separate fact from fiction in time to save her love life?

This is my first time reading the author so wasn’t sure what to expect. The book sounded like something a little different to get lost in. I really enjoyed this book. I was pulled into Weed’s life and her story from the opening lines. I loved the setting, a small town in France. The author does a brilliant job of bringing it to life, I could feel, hear, taste and smell everything, and my senses were fully engaged. The book is well-written, engaging and absorbing. The unique thing about this book is that Weed tells stories to the other truck drivers and often multiple stories wind through the book simultaneously which held my attention and made me want to read on. I didn’t want the book to end as I was enjoying myself so much. This is the first of three books. I will check out the other two.
