She thinks Paris holds the answer to a new start, but when her nightmare follows her across the world, she's forced to face the darkness living like cancer inside her soul.

My Review:

Kiss Me in Paris

This story is a good coming of age story. All about going out and making your own way in the world you want to inhabit we get a glimpse of the struggles to travel the path the hero and heroine have chosen despite criticism and lack of support. All the while falling in love and also battling family and friends. We get a fabulous glimpse of life abroad in Paris which I found a joy to read. There are many humorous moments in this book, including a bout with food poisoning. Beware Italian strangers bearing pastries. Also, avoid that douche bag wanna be rapist like the plague. And for god’s sake, be smart when partying in a foreign country with strangers. For a girl from New York, sometimes I wondered about Winter and her lack of common sense.

The heroine, Winter, is an aspiring author. There is much debate in the story about the best way to publish a book and I can’t help but wonder if this is autobiographical in a small way. It was logical that this is discussed in the story and great attention is given to the subject. Also, Winter is struggling with the fact that people are criticizing her for not having enough knowledge about the subject she is writing. Read: sex and Winter is a virgin at the beginning of the book. After she does the deed, magically she realizes how her writing was lacking and writes up a storm. *shrugs* Ok, but I believe that many people can (and do) write convincingly about things they have never done or seen before. Isn’t that really the true mark of a good writer? An apt quote for this story I think as sometimes I wondered what could possibly be going through that troubled girl’s head!

Our hero, Cade, had his own problems with a troubled family dynamic that does nothing to help his quandary. That quandary being: follow his heart and true interests or fall into line and go into the family business. There is a lot of dramatic family history that shapes Cade’s portion of the story and I really felt for him. Half the time I wanted to hug him and say it would all be ok. The way things finally work themselves out, well, you will just have to read the story to find out what happens. All in all, this is a solid 3.5 Star romantic read about love, life and travel.
