As the snow flutters down on the Eiffel Tower and fairy lights sparkle on the pavement cafés of Paris, meet the girl determined not to fall in love in the most romantic city in the world…
When Brooke arrives in Paris at Christmas, it feels like the perfect place to escape after being dumped by her long-term boyfriend. And while her head might be turned by the romance of couples strolling arm in arm along the riverbank, and the air scented with chocolat chaud, her heart remains firmly under lock and key – this trip is going to be about her.
Brooke might be able to resist the charms of one persuasive Frenchman who takes her to some of Paris’s most romantic spots, but when a chance encounter leads her to green-eyed Armand with his dark wavy hair and warm smile, she is annoyed to feel her heart skip a beat…
Still, what’s the harm of a holiday romance with no strings attached? Brooke is sure she can play it cool. But when Armand opens his heart to her in a candlelit restaurant and kisses her at the top of the Eiffel Tower, she throws caution to the wind. Armand isn’t her ex – and doesn’t she deserve a second chance at love?
But when Armand begins to blow hot and cold, she wonders if she has been taken for a fool. Why does he never answer his phone? Who is the mysterious tall blonde French woman who always seems to be watching Brooke? And when Armand leaves Paris without warning as Christmas Eve approaches, should Brooke try and find out more about the stranger she has found herself falling for?
What is it like to spend Christmas in Paris and at the same fall in love with a handsome Frenchman? Then you should read Christmas in Paris by Tilly Tennant.
Brooke was heartbroken when her ex-boyfriend, Johnny breaks up with her and then a year later, marries the woman that he had cheated on with Brooke. Brooke’s friend Felicity comes up with an idea to take up in Christmas selling in the heart of Paris, Brooke joins her friend. While in Paris, she meets Armand, a handsome Frenchman. And they start falling in love with each other with hurdles getting in their way.
I have read many of Tilly Tennant’s books and this book is one of my favorite book of hers. Though you do feel like watching a classic Hallmark Christmas movie while reading this, I actually enjoyed reading the book, particularly I enjoyed reading about the chemistry between Brooke and Armand. And while reading this book, I felt like I was in Paris with Brooke, spending Christmas and then finding romance in the romantic city. Overall, despite the predictable ending, I enjoyed reading this book!
If you are looking for a holiday romance set in Paris, I highly recommend this book. Worth four stars!
