Cute story and an easy read. Very predictable - everything works out for everybody. Paris as a main character which made the book more enjoyable

Sarah Smith agrees to exchange working in her bookshop with working in one in Paris for six months, dreaming of all the possibilities of living and working in this romantic city. It is a highly entertaining read where the writing flows smoothly, taking the reader into hidden gems within the city which are evocatively described, the words paint a detailed picture in the reader’s imagination. It is great to meet some familiar characters from earlier novels by this author, they’re like visiting beloved old friends but there are also new friends to meet as you journey through the story. Even the secondary characters are well thought out, with many aspects of their lives, past and present, brought to life as part of the story. I recommend not reading whilst you’re hungry though - some of the delicious sounding french food will soon have your tummy rumbling! Rebecca Raisin has done it again with this enthralling novel. Great characters, brilliant interactions, emotive plot and lots of twists and turns to keep the reader enthralled throughout! Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

Let me begin by saying how much I LOVE this cover! I would have to say it's my favorite of 2015 to date! The colors are amazing, Sarah looks amazing and the Paris back drop couldn't be more beautiful. As I have stated in some of my tweets, after reading this piece I am planning a trip to Paris! The details that Rebecca used in regards to the city alone paint the most amazing picture and I truly felt as though I was there and could imagine everything that Sarah was seeing! I am jealous of Ms. Sarah! She is a book shop owner! That would truly be my dream job! And to top it all off, she gets to do an exchange with her dear friend Sophie in Paris! Sophie needs to get away from the city of love after her relationship goes to shambles and she no longer can bare seeing the new "happy couple" daily. After nearly 1 second, if that, Sarah says YES! She will take over Sophie's book shop for 6 months and Sophie will travel to Ashford to run hers! Sarah can't believe that she actually stepped out of comfort zone and said yes? She has never been on a plane let alone out of the country? What is she thinking? Paris at Christmas, who would say no? After saying yes, she wonders how she will tell Ridge? What will he think of her sudden change of plans? He travels the world over, it shouldn't be an issue, or will it? So many sites to see, and 6 months to do it, it should be a breeze right? Well you would think, but not so much for this new book shop temporary manager in Paris France! When first arriving at the shop, she is thrown right to the wolves, I mean customers. She was hoping to catch a bit of sleep but these customers won't have that! The employees, they are very rough around the edges, and are walking all over poor Sarah daily. She needs to realize being nice Sarah from Ashford will not get her anywhere. Will she turn around and head home or will she learn to be the manager that Sophie believes she can be? She is having a hard time focusing on the craziness of the store, when her knight in shining armor, Ridge, has been rather absent from her life. They keep missing each other calls, or no calls for weeks at a time...Will their relationship make it through this test? This story is an intricate web of story lines that are all perfectly developed and told to the reader. You really feel like you are right there with her every step of her journey. Pour a glass of wine (or two), sit by the fire and enjoy!

Disclaimer: This book is an e-galley that I received from the publisher Carina UK to review before being published. I have not been paid to review this book, nor to give this book a good review. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced by the publisher. First of all I want to talk about the cover for this book. I love the artwork and feel it really fits in with the type of book this is. The christmas theme is adorable and if you didn't know where the Seine is, then seeing the Eiffel Tower in the background definitely tells you the book is set in Paris. If I had just seen this book in the store, the cover itself would have made me pick up this book. I loved the switching bookstores storyline! I particularly appreciate books about bibliophiles, being a book lover myself. I've also dreamed about owning a bookstore, so there's that commonality as well. Sarah is the protagonist of the story and I really mean that. The story focuses on her and no one else is really dealt with until much later in the book. This doesn't mean that this is a character driven book at al although. This is still a plot driven book but just mainly focuses on Sarah. I have no problem with this since for the most part I really like Sarah. I felt like I could really relate to Sarah and how she feels. I was slightly irritated by Sarah at the beginning of the story on how mousy she was and how dependant she seemed on Ridge. I hate seeing female characters fully dependant on their significant other and blindly following them. I'm happy to report that Sarah doesn't stay that way through the book. I loved the character development we see in Sarah as she goes on her journey. Watching her as she becomes more bold and outspoken and take control of her life is a joy. I loved all of the female character in this book, as well as Luiz and TJ. In the various characters you can see the different type of bibliophiles there are in the world. ****** MILD SPOILERS AHEAD ****** I really liked how based in reality this book was for the most part. In this day and age with the internet it is hard to own a bookstore and that was reflected in the book. Also the problems and insecurities of having a long distance relationship i felt were accurately reflected in this book. The only thing I felt was a bit off was the way Paris was represented, like the reader is wearing rose coloured glasses. I'm sure there are areas of Paris that are picturesque but not all of it is for certain. The reason I say for the most part is because in the end everyone gets a happy ever after. But I must admit that the romantic in me enjoyed that everyone got a happily ever after. The pace of this book seemed to be really slow at times which made it a bit harder to read. Ironically though once the book picked up pace it seemed to get too chaotic. I felt like the author should have focused either on the boyfriend and shop problems Sarah was having or the mystery of the love letters she found. I found the story to be going in too many directions at once even though it all tied in at the end. Overall this book was a quick, cute and easy read. This is the perfect type of book when I am between reading large fantasy books and just want a cute contemporary. I would love to re-read this book around Christmas time and if they came out with a paperback copy of the book then I would definitely buy it. I definitely am planning on reading more books by this author. I was particularly interested in Lil and the
