I finished about half of this book while I was getting a pedicure yesterday and I seriously didn’t want to stop. I think I like this one better than the first novel I read by her, though this didn’t have the “heart” of Italian for Beginners.
Our heroine gets dumped by her fiance and downsized by her job in the same week. Her local friends suck, but her old friend from study abroad comes through with a PR job in Paris. Emma’s no fool, so she flies to Paris to manage a rising music star during his album release. It’s pre-iPhone era, which is always a fun time travel, without going all the way back to the 90s.
It’s never fully explained why Guillaume does the things that he does, but it does seem like he’s not a total asshole, which helps. Emma’s family sucks, but luckily, they are only there in the beginning and the end-ish. I really loved how Emma and Gabe kept coming together and while I hated their reconciliation (SO unrealistic, even for chick lit!), I was happy that things did work out. And of course, now I want to go to Paris!
