I am a fan of all things Eloisa, so I was thrilled to discover that she was writing a memoir of her time in Paris, having lived vicariously through her Facebook updates for her year-long adventure. Paris in Love delivers on so many levels--it's filled with lovely little vignettes that paint a gorgeous picture of live in Paris...sometimes uproariously funny, sometimes deeply moving, and there's even a sigh-worthy love story!

Most importantly, there's such inspiration to be drawn from the story; after a (thankfully quick) cancer scare, Eloisa and her husband closed up shop in New Jersey and committed to a year in Paris to rediscover themselves, their family and the world. The book is filled with a passion for life that leaves you ready to pack your own bags and follow. Recommended for everyone.

¿I¿m Not in Love with ¿Paris in Love¿

After Eloisa James had suffered the loss of her Mother to cancer, she was diagnosed with the horrific disease herself. Following a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, she came to the realization that she should live everyday to the fullest. It was with this awakening, that, among other gutsy undertakings, she starts planning and then executing a year of living in Paris, France with her family. This change of lifestyle included the sale of their home and, ultimately, the purchase of a new abode upon their return to the states. Eloisa and her Husband, Alessandro, each took a year of sabbatical leave from teaching—found an Italian School in Paris that their children; teen-aged Luca and elementary-school wild child; Anna could attend, and secured an older but elegant apartment in a neighborhood ripe with charming shops and interesting people. Among the new friends Alessandro met at the “Conversation Exchange” was a French gentleman named Florent, who wanted to learn Italian so he could woo a young waitress he had met in Tuscany. Alessandro was forever giving him hints on what to say to the lass to help his love life along. While I was reading this memoir,I felt like I was sneaking a peek into someone’s diary, as I would have preferred longer chapters encompassing the adventures and family life, rather than daily entries. I have learned a few things—I know I have had some “hinge moments”….I will NEVER order Calf’s head (with or without the Rooster’s cockscomb) …and I’m wondering why someone didn’t add a length of Velcro to poor Milo’s (the 27 lb. Chihuahua) raincoat?? ( The family would not have had to settle for the unimpressive clear raincoat! )…and chocolate, by any name is just as sweet. You will get some chuckles ( especially where Alessandro’s Mama; Marina, and the portly Milo are concerned) identify with some similar situations, no matter what country you’re in, and Ms. James has kindly included an unofficial guide to some of her unforgettable places in Paris. I have always enjoyed Ms. James’ romance novels and hope to again in the future—In the meantime, I applaud her courage and tenacity. Nancy Narma

    Very disappointed.

    Not a story at all. Disjointed facebook posts that are annoyingly short. I am extremely disappointed and wish I hadn't wasted my money and time.

    The book was okay, but I got bored and couldn't even bring myself to finish it. It was like reading a bland journal. Sorry.
