Thirty Days in Paris by Veronica Henry @veronica_henry @orionbooks @RandomTTours

Book Description:

Because Paris is always a good idea…

Years ago, Juliet left a little piece of her heart in Paris – and now, separated from her husband and with her children flying the nest, it’s time to get it back!

So she puts on her best red lipstick, books a cosy attic apartment near Notre-Dame and takes the next train out of London.

Arriving at the Gare du Nord, the memories come flooding back: bustling street cafés, cheap wine in candlelit bars and a handsome boy with glittering eyes.

But Juliet has also been keeping a secret for over two decades – and she begins to realise it’s impossible to move forwards without first looking back.

Something tells her that the next thirty days might just change everything…

My Thoughts:

Well if this book doesn’t make you fall in love with Paris, nothing will!

I envied Juliet, I mean how could you not? Following her heart she decides to go and stay in Paris for thirty days to write a novel as well as reminisce of her time she spent there in her younger years. The author’s descriptions of this city were absolutely wonderful. The sites, smells, sounds, I had to stop myself from hoping on the next train or plane over there! She really captures the lifestyle and I loved the description of Juliet’s apartment with the balcony. Honestly it felt like I had been transported with Juliet and was experiencing it all for myself.

Juliet’s past and present collide when she comes to Paris and it is like an emotional roller coaster reconnecting with the people she met there when she was younger. I especially loved the friendship she has with Nathalie who was a fabulous character, she brings a certain energy to the story that was contagious.

Thirty Days in Paris was just ooh la la! Whilst there may be romance it is mainly about going after your dreams and not to be afraid to do it. There is lots that people can learn from our protagonist Juliet and I didn’t want to say goodbye to her at the end or Paris for that matter. Such a fabulous read of pure escapism that left me totally elated.

My thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me to be part of the tour. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
