    One Summer In Paris

    I seem to be on a roll with really, really good books lately! This one is not what I expected when I first started as I expected a romance and it was not, it was more a woman's fiction but it was so good and I read it in practically one sitting because I could not put it down. Grace is planning a surprise for her husband on their 25th wedding anniversary, a month-long break in Paris. However, he has his own surprise for her. He wants a divorce and has been having an affair. Audrey is getting ready to graduate and doesn't expect to do well and not planning to go to university and has set up a job in Paris at a bookstore and it comes with a flat so she is moving to Paris. This is where these women meet. You would expect these women who are so far apart in age, actually Audrey could be Grace's daughter, and together they forge a friendship and bond that helps heal the devastation in Grace's life and Audrey finally has the unconditional love she has never had. This story was beautifully written and left me very happy. **Received this for review**

    Pensive, uplifting, and delightfully addictive!

    One Summer in Paris is a heartwarming, compelling tale that takes you on a journey to the magical City of Lights and into the lives of the middle-aged, newly single Grace and the young, unsettled Audrey as they discover together the importance of taking chances, accepting change, embracing the future, and finding contentment. The prose is amusing and polished. The characters are complex, quirky, authentic, and endearing. And the plot is a beguiling story about life, loss, family, determination, kindness, forgiveness, self-discovery, happiness, romance, and the true value of friendship. Overall, I would have to say that One Summer in Paris is thoughtful, emotive, and charming and with its rich characterization and beautiful storyline, it’s another stunning example of why Sarah Morgan is one of my all-time favourite authors.

    Breathtaking!

    An ode to the strong women and the tight bonds of true friendship that encourage them to be the best version of themselves, through tears and laughter, through pain and growth, love and loss, they always stand by us, hold us up when needed, and never say they are 'just fine'. When cheating and third person issues are one of my hard limits on the romance novels I read, the author's name was the only reason I said yes to review this title. And I am immensely glad that I did say yes, and I want to thank HQ for sending me the eARC, cause this story, it shook the foundation. The story made me think, it made me laugh, brought tears to my eyes, it brought back sweet memories of Paris, and it made me reach out to my sister-friends. Rarely there is this deep, sweet, contentment in my whole being when I finish a book, but One Summer In Paris, with its theme of forgiveness and redemption, love and friendship, family and the tribe of people we bring to our lives, it just went directly to my heart and wowed me. Grace, Audrey, and Mimi - three women of different generations, yet tightly bonded together were all effortless to connect with and relate to. Each of them dealt with issues in their lives that were real and plausible, contributing to the tale, giving life and love a new perspective. The fourth 'woman' in the story - Paris itself - was as delightfully seductive as always, the city of lights, passion, and love delivering the delightful images, the ardent backdrop to the passionate story of women loving and living and learning, finding their inner voice, inner strength, and their own wolfpack. One Summer In Paris is an experience that will touch your heart, it is a sensual, triumphant tale of women, life and loss, loving and living fully, tearing down the pretenses, and daring to be honest, open, and true to yourself and others around you. It took my breath away ~ Five Spoons

    Light-Hearted & Well Written

    3.5 Stars This is my first Sarah Morgan book and it will definitely not be my last. I have just discovered a new genre of books to enjoy. “One Summer in Paris” is light-hearted and well written. I just loved the relationship and humour demonstrated by Grace and Audrey, the main characters. They have such different personalities and are fun to read about. Grace wanted to surprise her husband on their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary with an extended trip to Paris. However, the surprise was on her when he asks for a divorce. She was hurt, bewildered and felt betrayed, especially when she finds out that he was having an affair with a woman, young enough to be his daughter. Audrey, is eighteen years of age, dyslexic, quite independent and very capable. She has been taking care of her alcoholic mother for many years and never felt loved or wanted by her. Determined to leave this chaotic life, Audrey leaves London and sets off to spend the summer working in Paris. An incident in Paris, brings Grace and Audrey together. While there is a gap in their ages and their personalities are totally different, they are both struggling with very similar hardships. They forge this wonderful friendship that is incredibly strong and they stick up for each other. Their relationship is heartwarming and I enjoyed seeing each of them blossom into new individuals. Definitively a must read!

    Great

    Loved the relationship that developed after near crisis for Kate. Mimi's story which weaved it's way through the book and ended how you wished. Every single character played key roles. What can I say, I'd love a summer in Paris. Just the bookshop alone would be worth the trip. Wonderful Sarah. Now moving on to. Wedding in December which I bought at same time.
