Genres: Chick Lit
Every girl dreams of hearing those four magical words Will you marry me? But no-one tells you what’s supposed to happen next…
Fun-loving Gemma Goodwin knows she should be revelling in her happy-ever-after. Except when her boyfriend Lord Edward popped the question, after a whirlwind romance, although she didn’t say no….she didn’t exactly say yes either!
A month-long cookery course in Paris could be just the place to make sure her heart and her head are on the same page… And however disenchanted with romance Gemma is feeling, the City of Love has plenty to keep her busy; the champagne is decadently quaffable, the croissants almost too delicious, and shopping is a national past-time! In fact, everything in Paris makes her want to say Je t’aime… Except Edward!
But whilst Paris might offer plenty of distractions from wedding planning – including her new friends, mysterious Joe and hot French rockstar Blade - there’s no reason she couldn’t just try one or two couture dresses is there? Just for fun…
Happy Release Day to Samantha Tonge (even though it’s over where you are)!!!
From Paris with Love. Gah. This book. Sooooo good! I don’t even know where to start. It’s always wonderful to reconnect with some of your favorite characters. We first met Gemma and Lord Edward in Doubting Abbey (review will be up soon…I seem to be reviewing series backwards lately although it is not necessary to read this one in order) and I was hooked immediately. I just love Gemma! Fast forward a few months and we see Gemma and Lord Edward move to PARIS! So jealous. To live above a little bakery, so close to the all the shops and to work in a French restaurant! I have a gas station down the block, Target is a few miles away and I sit in a cube. Ok, there’s a mall, but it’s a pretty standard US mall. Not even close to the same. Here we meet Joe. Mr.-MI6-Super-Spy. Then Blade. Mr.-Down-to-Earth-Rocker. I’m just gonna go ahead and say yum to both. (Sorry, Mom!)
I think I’m going to have to start a new rating system. Cover. Beautiful as all Carina covers are! Number of tissues needed. Just one but it was pretty soaked. Man that part hurt. Don’t worry, I won’t tell but I know exactly how Gemma felt at that point. After that, I was pretty conflicted about how I wanted the story to end. I saw two possible outcomes and was surprised with another. Sam surpassed anything I would have thought of and WOW was it perfect! Carina UK…Print. Copies. Please!!! To read over and over and…you get the idea. Ok I’ll stop asking for those now and sit patiently. While I’m waiting, you all need to go up and click those buy links!
Sam, thank you so much for letting me read From Paris with Love!! Might there be a book 3 in the future? I would love to see more of my new friends!!
