What others say about Intoxicating Paris:
"Adams is frankly delighted by most of what she has seen in Paris and not too "cool" to admit it. In a breezy and clever writing style, she has produced an entertaining memoir-cum-guide to the City of Light...First-hand accounts make for good reading, and Adams has recorded hers in a witty, insightful manner. Nowhere is she more eloquent than when she writes of food. The markets of Paris come alive in her vivid descriptions...I am surprised I made it through this book without gaining weight...In the end, what comes across is that this is a witty, intelligent woman with an open mind and strong powers of observation...Best of all, her affection for her subject shines through on every page. P.J. Adams would make an excellent dinner companion. I'm sure I don't have to tell you what one of our topics of conversation would be."--Jane Del Monte, Bonjour Paris.com
