When bookshop owner Sarah Smith is offered the opportunity for a job exchange with her Parisian friend Sophie, saying yes is a no-brainer--after all, what kind of romantic would turn down six months in Paris? Sarah is sure she's in for the experience of a lifetime--days spent surrounded by literature in a gorgeous bookshop, and the chance to watch the snow fall on the Eiffel Tower. Plus, now she can meet up with her journalist boyfriend, Ridge, when his job takes him around the globe. But her expectations cool faster than her café au lait soon after she lands in the City of Light--she's a fish out of water in Paris. The customers are rude, her new coworkers suspicious and her relationship with Ridge has been reduced to a long-distance game of phone tag, leaving Sarah to wonder if he'll ever put her first over his busy career. As Christmas approaches, Sarah is determined to get the shop--and her life--back in order ... and make her dreams of a Parisian happily-ever-after come true.

The stowy just was okay, but not wowth sitting thwough the weading of a book by someone with such a tewwible wisp and accent. If a pewson cannot pwonounce Ls and Rs, why have them wead a book with chawactahs named Widge (Ridge) and Wiwy (Lilly)? Oh yes, the weader could pwonounce rs, but onwy at the end of the wowd sofa...which came out sofer.

On one hand I thought don't be mean about it, but really, it's not fair to the reader. Would we listen to a singer that couldn't carry a tune? Would we go to an accountant who doesn't add well? Then why let this person narrate a book? It is an absolute distraction.

I tolerated this because I started it in a place where I could not switch and became invested in the story, thinking this must be going somewhere. Like I said, it was okay and just okay. Not worth sitting through.

I really enjoyed this book because of the views of Paris and the quirky people she worked with in the Parisian bookshop she takes over for 6 months. It's simply a fun book.

A bookshop exchange to the romantic city of Paris pushes Sarah Smith out of her settled and secure comfortable life in small town Ashford, to stretch her in ways she could never have anticipated, while dealing with challenging people, complex relationships and navigating the intricacies of the City of Lights.

“My to-be-read pile sadly would most likely outlive me - though I tried valiantly to catch up with it, I'd never get there. The allure of new books, new writers, characters who beckoned to me would never wane.”
