Sophie Valroux's Paris Stars Kindle Edition
Everybody wants a piece of grand chef Sophie Valroux. With her once-destroyed reputation fully recovered and then some, Sophie is making her mark in the culinary world. She’s running the restaurants of Château de Champvert, the beautiful estate that she inherited from her grandmother. She and her fiancé, Rémi, are closer than ever, and she’s even bonding with his daughter Lola. Everything should be perfect.
Yet, Sophie still feels something in her heart is missing.
When she’s invited to cook at an exclusive event her culinary idol is attending, she thinks this could be the thing to catapult her to greater heights, maybe even bring her one step closer to her one and only dream of achieving the stars—Michelin stars.
But fate has other plans for Sophie. After she accepts to cook for the Parisian elite, her world crumbles. She suffers a fall and loses her senses of smell and taste. Certain that her career will vanish if people find out, she keeps this secret to herself, not even telling Rémi. She fakes it all: the menus for every meal, the taste of fresh figs, the juicy cherries in the orchard. All she has to do is get through life—and the event—tasteless without missing a single step. Fake it ‘til you make it…right?
"With a colorful medley of characters and ingredients, Sophie Valroux’s Paris Stars is a culinary delight. One can’t help but root for this ambitious young chef as she overcomes unimaginable obstacles to reach for her dreams. With heart and charm, author Samantha Vérant delivers once again!"—Nicole Meier, author of The Second Chance Supper Club
“Pitting old dreams against new experiences, this rich and vibrant novel, packed with lush descriptions of countryside life, mixed with Parisian glamour, and sprinkled with intrigue, will appeal to foodies, Francophiles, and fans of Mary Simses' The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Café.”—Booklist
“Captivating characters, mouthwatering food and a hint of romance… this picturesque novel has it all.”—Woman's World Magazine
"Chef Sophie is at it again with her passion for food that will make you wish you could hop the next flight for France and her desire to have it all. But in true Vérant fashion, Sophie must first run the gamut of what she thinks she wants and what she really wants. Vérant pulls off Sophie Valroux’s Paris Stars with all the grace and style we have come to expect from this talented author."—Barbara Conrey, USA Today Bestselling Author of Nowhere Near Goodbye
"Vérant is a masterful storyteller with a special knack for weaving mouthwatering menus into her storyline—and bonus: she generously shares her recipes in the back of the book."—Lori Nelson Spielman, bestselling author of The Star-crossed Sisters of Tuscany
“Smart, delightful, and—dare I say?—downright delicious, Sophie Valroux’s Paris Stars has all the right ingredients.

Highly recommended.” —Camille Pagán, bestselling author of Don’t Make Me Turn This Life Around

This can easily be read as a delightful standalone.”—Publishers Weekly
"Vérant’s follow-up to The Secret French Recipes of Sophie Valroux is a story about food and following one’s dreams in the face of insecurity and adversity. ...

Only when she has reached this pinnacle will she prove to herself and the world that she is worthy of the accolade awarded to very few female chefs. But will it make her happy, and is it truly what she wants?
