Review Quote: 'A perfect Parisian fantasy every woman will love' KATIE FFORDE
First Sentences: Juliet stood in the middle of the kitchen, overwhelmed by its emptiness.
My Opinion: Veronica Henry is known for her escapist romantic, realistic and relatable stories. Her latest novel set in Paris was a delight to read.
The protagonist Juliet is returning to Paris after a thirty year gap. The dual timeline enables the reader to fully understand and appreciate what happened to her all those years ago in Paris. She has now returned to address the past.
This novel stirred my many lovely memories of Paris. Recommended to anyone that loves Paris and enjoys a feel good read.
Précis Courtesy of Goodreads:
Because Paris is always a good idea...
Years ago, Juliet left a little piece of her heart in Paris - and now, separated from her husband and with her children flying the nest, it's time to get it back!
So she puts on her best red lipstick, books a cosy attic apartment near Notre-Dame and takes the next train out of London.
Arriving at the Gare du Nord, the memories come flooding back: bustling street cafés, cheap wine in candlelit bars and a handsome boy with glittering eyes.
But Juliet has also been keeping a secret for over two decades - and she begins to realise it's impossible to move forwards without first looking back.
Something tells her that the next thirty days might just change everything...
