My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Opposites attract. And in “One Summer in Paris” the reader will witness the close friendship that will grow between two absolutely different characters.
Audrey and Grace arrive in Paris on the same day. However, their plans for a summer in Paris are completely opposed. Young Audrey, happy to leave alcoholic mother behind her in London, is looking for a new start in life. Although there are a few barriers laying on the way of her plan. Meanwhile, Grace’s original plan for summer in Paris was to spend with her husband of twenty-five years. Unfortunately, David has a different plan for the summer, that includes his twenty-year-old lover. Nevertheless, after arriving in Paris, Grace and Audrey’s paths cross in an unusual way and two characters fall on one another for a support that very fast will grow into an unbreakable bond and friendship.
I loved the setting of the novel, all secondary characters and little twists that were revealed at the end. This is an absolutely sweet and light read and will leave the reader’s heart full of warmth. “One Summer in Paris” not just a typical story of love, although that specific topic is a large part of the book, the novel also includes and discusses serious subjects like alcoholism and dyslexia.
Thank you NetGalley and HQN Books publisher for a free copy of the book and Sarah Morgan for a lovely story.
