In this book we move location slightly, closer to the Eiffel Tower and learn more about the idiosyncrasies of Anouk who appeared very briefly in the first book of the collection. She runs her antique shop in a way that is contrary to most business, new buyers are only allowed in if they have an introduction from someone she already knows and trusts and she will only sell an item if it a) stays in France and b) is the correct item for that person. It seems to be the easiest way to go bankrupt but somehow it works for her and that is part of the charm of the shop and of this story. Having had her heart and trust broken by the odious Joshua who quite frankly deserves to be slapped (I'm not condoning violence but he needs that irritating smugness knocked off his face!); Anouk is unsurprisingly hesitant about becoming involved with anyone again, especially not the mysterious. and sometimes irritating, Tristan who appears to have some sort of hidden teleport the way he appears near her without making a sound on more than one occasion.
Tristan gives out a lot of mixed messages so it's hard for Anouk to know where she stands with him, especially as she has trust issues because of the odious Joshua but as the story progresses she does make some effort to shake off her slightly monotonous (her word!) life and live a little and the results are rather fun. Who knew spying on people could be so hilarious! Add into this family problems, colourful friends and a thief who is stealing precious and valuable jewels without being seen and it's no surprise Anouk is having trouble knowing which way is up but it's those elements combined with the male characters that make this book fun and interesting.
I loved the Little Bookshop on the Seine and while I really enjoyed this book too there was something missing, something that was in the previous book but not here and that's why I haven't given it 5/5. I don't mean for that to sound discouraging though, far from it. This is a fun, light book with realistic characters, amazing antiques and brilliant descriptions of Paris in different seasons; how the tourist levels change, how the city wakes up in the morning and goes to sleep at night, all of this is there and is excellently written as always. This is definitely a book worth immersing yourself in and enjoying, especially with a glass of wine or a coffee as both are a regular feature in the story. I think, probably because I love books so much, that the first book spoke to me more but that did not stop me enjoying this one and I am definitely looking forward to the third book coming out soon.
Many thanks to the author and publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
