About this deal

Som Henrys övriga böcker växlar denna mellan dåtid och nutid på ett mycket bra sätt - sakta får vi reda på vad som hände, samtidigt som vi upplever kärleken till staden (och dess mat…) i nutid. Every other page is peppered with locations, names of restaurants and cafes, French phrases with or without their translation and the various ways of making your way round the city.

Henry takes us on this journey alongside Juliet, showing us all the beauty of Paris and more, but we also experience the bumpy part of this ride too and my heart went out to many of the characters in this book who the author had depicted so perfectly. Her first love , that was snatched cruelly away by two very selfish people , one that had me cursing at him for what he did. If you've ever been in Paris, this is a great read, because you will be visualising everything through her writing. Veronica is one of my auto read authors and I always look forward to her next book coming out, wether it be one of a series or her stand alones.

Paris has never appealed to me until I read this book and now I'm tempted to pack my bags and experience it for myself. I thoroughly appreciated the lack of drama in her separation from Stuart because it felt so plausible and real.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. It’s probably not very realistic on an every day basis but the book certainly made me want to revisit the city and to try and find some of Juliet’s bars, restaurants and markets. Veronica Henry immerses her reader into the Parisian setting with such skill and atmosphere that it’s as if you’re sitting on the banks of the Seine reading it. The thought of Number 11 Lark Hill falling silent - a home usually bustling with noise, people and the fragrant smells of something cooking on the Aga - seems impossible. The storyline of this book was wonderful, I loved meeting Juliet who was this beautiful strong lady about to embark on her own journey of self discovery.
