Head to Paris this Christmas and fall in love under the lights of the Eiffel Tower with best-selling author, Mandy Baggot.
A truly magical tale; an absolute treat to read – as I knew it would be – from Mandy Baggot.
It’s fair to say that Keeley Andrews has had a terrible year and a bit so when she is offered an all expenses paid fortnight in Paris and her best friend Rach can come along, she can’t wait to get there! Ethan Bouchard is a Parisian with the most awful eighteen months behind him who literally bumps into Keeley in the French capital, but he’s too buried in the past to move on with his life. When they keep running into each other there does seem to be the beginning of something there – but can they see where it goes?
*Sigh* .. now I’m really in the mood for Christmas! This is just adorable .. such a wonderful tale, beautifully written and providing a real flavour of Paris. The characters are so beautifully drawn that they just jump off the page and I expect to meet them on the streets if ever I visit that city. With family, friends and others brought into the story, this is an extensive, solid story which flows gently from beginning to end. There is so much going on, and I loved every single bit of it especially as, by the final page, it was all made complete. I particularly appreciate that the blurb doesn’t reveal all the secrets held within the pages! Such an utter joy to read, containing everything a Christmas novel should have and it is absolutely worth my highest recommendation and five sparkling stars.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and in particular to Victoria Joss for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
