What a beautiful and delightful tasting menu of a book...Reading this memoir was like wandering through a Parisian patisserie in a dream. I absolutely loved it. (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love)
[An] effervescent diary. (Publishers Weekly)
Written with a dry sense of wit and an elegant sense of style, James' literary love letter to the City of Light is inspiring and insightful. (Chicago Tribune)
In this delightful charm-bracelet of a memoir, James, also the author of 20 romance novels, offers quirky, often laugh-out-loud funny snapshots of her adventures as an American suddenly immersed in all things French - food, clothes, joie de vivre. (People Magazine)
An irresistible love letter to a city that will make you want to head there, Paris in Love is also a joyful testament to the pleasures of savouring life.See all Product Description

There are snippets from the book that I really liked but I felt that it was a lazy compilation of assorted thoughts and this was particularly annoying because the potential was there for so much more. The fact that she had been through breast cancer and also recently lost her mother (and a close friend) to cancer were obviously major incentives in her decision to go to France, but this was barely touched on until the very end of the book. The impact on her family is also something that you deduce as a reader rather than having her talk about in any depth. As a travel book it's slightly more successful (at the end she compiles a list of her favourite restaurants, museums and sights which is truly enticing) but again, this is only part of what the book is.
Also, the title really bugged me. Paris in Love? Why? Because she writes romance novels? It has nothing to do with the book!Read more ›
Oh, and as an American now petmanently living in Europe (unfortunately not Paris) I was appalled by the comment of Eloisa trying out Beef Snout (such an ugly name for Museau de Boeuf even if it IS the literal translation): it does NOT taste like Spam ! It's a jellied concoction served with mustardy/shalloty vinaigrette and if you don't try to translate the name, it's actually quite good. Same goes for Tete de Veau (veal's head) which is NOT a brain tart and for that matter, brains don't even come into the recipe. And it's NOT a whole head served on a platter. Maybe she'd better stick to risotto ...

I absolutely loved this book. A warm, witty and honest account of a family's time spent living in Paris. I very much hope that she writes more of the same!Published on 1 April 2013 by M. T. Peakin
