Former fashion designer Lobe delights with another modern French tale (after Paris Hangover). Alexandra is a twenty-something Midwestern girl living it up in Paris. Ostensibly working on her art history dissertation, Alexandra falls into the life of the beau monde after attending a fashion event in a couture dress "borrowed" by her designer intern best friend. With her charm, innocence, and American style, she attracts the attention of one of Paris's most powerful men and soon finds herself one of the most sought-after women in France. Showered with gifts from diamonds to apartments, Alexandra revels in her new life. But can she last in this shallow, fast-paced world? And what exactly will happen with her old fiancé? Alexandra's journey of self-discovery is light, enjoyable, and slightly racy and will be enjoyed by Francophiles everywhere. This modern fairy tale is recommended for all public libraries.
