To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
5 stars because i can find no fault with it The characters are believable and the descriptions of Paris take me back there.The story is so gripping to me because there no parts of it which caused me to think "Nah that would never have happened" There are no saints in here just real life flawed people Basic storyline is young widow with 3 boys left the States with her husband and set about being the perfect wife, cooking French food and lovingly restoring the worst house on one of the best streets in Paris Widowhood forces her to rethink her finances so she puts an ad in various newspapers in the states for tennants The ones she finds are inevitably runnind away from something and then there is her friend of a friend the almost starving artist in Paris who takes her final room That,s all i am giving away!
at first i didnt think i would finish this book i found it hard to get going but all of a sudden i was in.very well written getting all the characters togetherand connected was brilliant you know a good book when you feel and see the characters,as i have just finished they are all still with me ,id love to rent a room in that lovely welcoming house .
I was attracted to this book at 3am one sleepless night browsing Amazon (desperate for a bit of light reading), because Paris was in the title and I liked the cover !!! However, I feel there's nothing here not to like really and I can imagine it as a "chic flick" maybe. Probably a book I'll give away and not want it back, but it's fine : a good light read for holiday time.
I just love Paris, whether it be visiting Paris or reading about Paris and after reading the reviews thought it would be a book that I would enjoy. A great light/easy read, I could envisage the characters, all different, each with a story to tell, sometimes funny sometimes traumatic but Annie was there, she would be the friend we would all love to have! I would definitely recommend and hope like other reviewers that we will hear more from the author.
