Grace has been married for twenty-five years, and she has a surprise all planned out for her husband: a romantic trip to Paris. But he has a surprise as well: he wants a divorce. With her world in pieces, Grace decides to take the trip anyway and spend the summer in Paris—where memories of the one who got away haunt her.
Audrey has worked for years to get away from her alcoholic mother. A summer in Paris and a job at a bookstore is her way out, and she intends to enjoy every moment to the fullest. Now she’s in Paris, but doesn’t speak French, and has no money, so maybe she’ll be wandering the streets of Paris alone.
Then she meets Grace, and the unlikely pair form a bond that draws them together even as they help each other spread their wings.
One Summer in Paris made me want to visit the city…and I’ve never had the impulse to go there before. I would love to visit this bookstore—let alone work there—and the city came alive on the pages of this book. I’m more like Grace than like Audrey, but I thoroughly enjoyed this read!
Sarah Morgan is a bestselling author. One Summer in Paris is her newest novel.
