Sarah Smith and her French friend, Sophie decide to exchange jobs. Sophie is traveling to America to care for Sarah’s book shop and Sarah is flying to Paris to run Sopie’s book shop. Ridge, Sarah’s boyfriend is to join Sarah in Paris. Well! That sounds amazing. The Eiffel Tower, good food, romantic walks and she will be surrounded by books the entire time she is in Paris. What could be more blissful? It doesn’t happen quite the way Sarah anticipated. When her plane lands she discovers a fast-paced Paris and the train station is confusing. When she finally arrives at the book shop, it’s horribly overcrowded, and the customers are rude. The employees aren’t welcoming. One seems downright hostile. And! Sarah and Ridge are playing phone tag. It does get worse before it gets better.
I liked this book. It is a sweet story. Sarah was a lovely character. She’s timid and has difficulty standing up for herself, but she wouldn’t purposely hurt anyone. It was difficult and extremely stressful, in Paris, at the beginning of her adventure but she persevered.
I would recommend this book for adults. There are some adult conversations in the book that I just don’t believe are appropriate for younger people.
