Today I have a review of One Summer in Paris by Sarah Morgan, available on April 9, 2019, from HQN/Harlequin Books!
I recently read The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan and was completely swept up in her storytelling. I could not wait to read One Summer in Paris!
Grace and her husband are celebrating twenty-five years of happy marriage, and she plans a surprise trip to Paris as an anniversary gift.
Only her husband has a surprise of his own, a devastating one. He’s filing for divorce. Grace makes an emboldened decision to take the trip to Paris by herself.
Audrey has her own heartbreaking story and reason for leaving London for Paris. She finds a job in a delicious bookshop and makes her getaway.
And then, Grace and Audrey cross paths in Paris. They are living separately in apartments above the bookshop, and through their friendship, they heal and come-of-age in the new phases of their lives.
Sarah Morgan writes the most uplifting stories. Grace and Audrey have had their share of heartbreak, but when they choose to turn the page, we go with them and know something good is in store for them, thanks to Sarah Morgan. The story is entertaining, engaging, wholesome, and warm. I was completely lost in it and within Grace and Audrey’s friendship. I felt like they were my friends, too. There’s so much more here than first meets the surface, and it’s all worth its weight in gold!
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own. A special thank you to the author, her publicist, and HQN Books for the copy.
“Morgan is a masterful storyteller, and readers will be fully immersed in this realistic but magical summer in Paris. Packed full of love, loss, heartbreak, and hope, this may just be Morgan’s best book yet. For fans of Jojo Moyes, Taylor Jenkins Reid, and Stacey Ballis” -Booklist Review on One Summer in Paris
USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan returns with this heartwarming novel about the power of friendship, love and what happens when an ending is just the beginning…
To celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Grace has planned the surprise of a lifetime for her husband—a romantic getaway to Paris. But she never expected he’d have a surprise of his own: he wants a divorce. Reeling from the shock but refusing to be broken, a devastated Grace makes the bold decision to go to Paris alone.
Audrey, a young woman from London, has left behind a heartache of her own when she arrives in Paris. A job in a bookshop is her ticket to freedom, but with no money and no knowledge of the French language, suddenly a summer spent wandering the cobbled streets alone seems much more likely…until she meets Grace, and everything changes.
Grace can’t believe how daring Audrey is. Audrey can’t believe how cautious newly single Grace is. Living in neighboring apartments above the bookshop, this unlikely pair offer each other just what they’ve both been missing. They came to Paris to find themselves, but finding this unbreakable friendship might be the best thing that’s ever happened to them…
