nice package

I haven't looked at it yet. but it arrived within a week, and the cover looks so fine. it looks very nice!

Great Book

I really liked everything about this book down to the pages it was written on. They are really nice pages! I felt all warm and fuzzy after reading this book and can't wait to read her other book I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere. I didn't want to put this book down and was upset when I was forced to. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends. I usually give books about 100 pages to spark my interest, but this book did so immediately.

Charming, heartwarming

I'm 3/4 of the way through this delightfully engrossing 500+ page novel. Very hip and current. Lots of French slang. This author can write pages of quippy dialog that tell you huge amounts about the two characters engaged in conversation. She can also write pages of description and monologue that move the plot forward cleverly. The next time I'm in Paris, I'll be looking for these lovable characters at every turn. I just expect to run into them, hurrying by on a moto, waiting at the metro. They're that real. Whenever Camille refers to a specific artist who has inspired her - Vuillard, Albrecht Durer - I run to the Internet to look them up.

Loved it!

I loved this book. The novel is contemporary, and unfolds almost entirely in dialogue. It took me a while to adjust to this, but then I was hooked. The characters are eccentric and charming and the dialogue invariably sparkling and surprising. (And, of course, it doesn't hurt a bit that it's set in Paris and the Loire Valley, and that one of the characters is a chef.) This was a novel I ended up carrying with me everywhere, chatting about to strangers, and lost sleep finishing.

I haven't even finished the book yet and I'm sad it will have to end!

This book is wonderful. I haven't even finished it yet, and I'm already thinking how sad I will be when it ends! It's just beautiful. So enjoyable and stunning.
