A New York Times Bestseller. After years of living vicariously through the heroines in her novels, bestselling author Eloisa James takes a leap that most of us can only daydream about.
She sells her house, leaves her job as a Shakespeare professor, and packs her husband and two protesting children off to Paris.
Grand plans are abandoned as she falls under the spell of daily life as a Parisienne exquisite food, long walks by the Seine, reading in bed, displays of effortless chic around every corner, and being reminded of what really matters in a place where people seem to kiss all the time.
Against one of the world's most picturesque backdrops, she copes with her Italian husband's notions of quality time; her two hilarious children, ages eleven and fifteen, as they navigate schools not to mention puberty in a foreign language; and her formidable mother-in-law, Marina, who believes dogs should be fed prosciutto and wives should live in the kitchen.
An irresistible love letter to a city that will make you want to head there, Paris in Love is also a joyful testament to the pleasures of savouring life.

Review by Berly
This is a wonderful little peek into the daily life of New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James. She decided one day to take a sabbatical, sell her house, and move her family to Paris. Her year there is told in funny, loving excerpts, covering the antics of her two children, the wonderful food, and the ups and downs of married life all set in one of the most enchanting and beautiful cities. A light, fun read.
