Rebecca did it again - she made me lose myself in one of her books and dream of bookshops and Paris with romantic ideals! Now I have "Learn French", "Visit Paris", written on my bucket list - all because of this book.

I adore meeting up with characters I first got a glimpse of in The Gingerbread Cafe series, and this time I got to catch up with a girl after my own heart, Sarah from the bookshop on the corner. There are brief mentions of Lil (who is ready to pop her little baby girl out), CeeCee who makes me laugh so much, and we even catch up with Clay & Lucy whom we met in Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm. That's the magic of Rebecca's books, they are literally like a catch up with friends.

Anyway, we shall focus on Sarah who has a hunky boyfriend Ridge who she barely sees, yet she remains ever the devoted believer of true love conquers all. Sarah has a friend who owns a bookshop in Paris and when Sarah is contacted by her, is told that her boyfriend has left her and she needs to escape - to Ashford! But there is a catch, she wants to swap bookshops with Sarah for a short time!

Sarah has never been out of Ashford, and has self esteem issues from her teenage years, and she has to decide what she wants more; Security and Stability, or Adventure and Excitement. Needless to say, she chooses to swap bookshops and head to Paris. During her stay she has to contend with the profits being down, rude staff, Ridge's fleeting calls and 1 day in Paris before he 'had' to fly off again for work, and having her suitcase and passport stolen the second she arrives.

The Little Bookshop on the Seine is the start of Rebecca Raisin’s new series, although we do get the added bonus of familiar names and characters from Rebecca’s previous books. Although it was only partly set at Christmas (towards the end), rather than being a Christmas novel like the synopsis suggests, it still had that sparkly, wintery glow to it – an ideal book to snuggle up with in the cold winter months. Set in Paris instead of the comforting Ashford, this felt like a book that had taken Rebecca out of her comfort zone – but of course she doesn’t disappoint and this book had a feel to it just as entrancing as the rest. I wish I could live in one of Rebecca’s books!

For fans of Rebecca’s previous books, the story in The Little Bookshop on the Seine might not transpire exactly the way you expect it to. Knowing Sarah from The Bookshop on the Corner, we know she likes living vicariously through her books – the characters inside the pages have the exciting adventures, not her. She’s happy with her fictional book boyfriends and her own dreamy boyfriend, Ridge. I loved the concept of this book – for Sarah and her friend Sophie to exchange bookshops for six months. The idea that Sarah would be spending six months in the romantic, beautiful location of Paris – where surely so many of the books she loves are set – had me expecting a fairy-tale like, romantic new lifestyle for Sarah but instead, Rebecca delivers a more realistic, well-drawn story which made the uplifting ending all the more sweeter.

Life in Paris for Sarah is not exactly what she was anticipating – especially in Once Upon a Time, the bookshop she is managing for six months.

Sarah Smith is a small town American who has never travelled much beyond Ashford, the quintessential small town she grew up in. Until now, that is, when she is offered the chance to “swap book shops” for six months. She will go to Paris to run her online friend Sophie’s shop and Sophie will come to America and run Sarah’s shop,

Sarah is the ultimate romantic, who loves nothing more than immersing herself in a good romantic read and she sets off with the same notions any of us would have if we were to visit Paris for the first time. She dreams of strolling along the banks of the Seine, climbing the Eiffel Tower, nibbling on croissants whilst discussing books with fellow bibliophiles. But, will the reality match up to her dreams and what effect will the move have on her relationship with journalist Ridge, who is frequently away from home on assignments?

It is very much a feel good read, entertaining and flowing well. I loved to read about her exploring and discovering Paris for the first time, including all the hidden nooks and crannies that are kept hidden from the tourists. It really brought Paris to life but didn’t feel as if I were reading a travel guide. I also loved the way she brought a small town chintzy American Christmas to sophisticated and chic Paris.

It is extremely romantic, love is most definitely on the menu here and Sarah firmly believes in a happy ever after at all times for all her romance reads – but is she being unrealistic? Can she really expect to find her happy ever after with Ridge? The product description mentions her wandering around Shakespeare and Co, but in the Netgalley proof I was sent, the shop in Paris is called “Once Upon A Time”. I do hope the final name is that, because what better name could you have for the shop when you want to everyone to live happily ever after.

Many thanks to the publishers via Netgalley for the review copy.
