A Perfect Paris Christmas by Mandy Baggot
United in grief. Pushed apart by tragedy.
Keeley Andrews knows more than anyone that you only live once. So when she receives an invitation to spend two weeks in Paris, all expenses paid, she jumps at the chance.
Ethan Bouchard has had the worst eighteen months of his life. He's ready to give up on everything, including his hotel chain. So when he meets Keeley, it simply isn't the right time.
As Keeley and Ethan continue to bump into each other on the romantic Parisian streets, they can't help but wonder whether this is fate telling them to let go of the past and leap into the future...
What a heartbreaking yet uplifting start to a story.
Ms Baggott has done it again! She has tackled some difficult subjects with skill and empathy, and even made me cry.
Keeley's journey was a long and fraught one and, due to her circumstances, I believe she is still on it - there is a poignancy about the happy-ever-after that makes me think it's a happy-for-now.
Ethan was a tortured soul, and I get the feeling he's only partly healed.
However, despite the emotional heaviness in the story, there were some lighter moments and some lovely descriptions of Paris. But I certainly wouldn't describe this novel as a laugh out loud one.
