When Angela Clark’s boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance.
But even as she’s falling for the joie de vivre of Paris, someone’s conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a ṱȇte-à-tȇte with his ex in a local bar, Angela’s dreams of Parisian passion all start crashing around her.
With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can’t decide if she should stay and face the music or run away home...
What do you get when you combine a romantic trip to Paris with your boyfriend’s heart breaking ex? I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk is the answer. Another great summer read.
This time Angela is taking a trip with her lovely boyfriend to Paris as he has a gig with his band there. Unknown to Angela, her boyfriend’s evil ex is there. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Everything seems to go wrong for Angela on this trip. Her luggage doesn’t make it to Paris, she is supposed to be writing a piece for a magazine but she can’t get much research done with everything that is going on and to top it all off her relationship looks like it’s stumbling.
Angela is having a rough time of it in this book but she comes out fighting. She has a few life changing decisions to make. One of those decisions is whether she stays in New York or does she go home to the UK?
Throughout the whole book I was silently screaming at Angela for being such an idiot. But that’s easy enough for me to say being the reader and not living her life even though what happens to her has probably happened to a lot of us girls and for some reason we seem to add two and two together and get five when the answer is so clear and straightforward. Our emotions get the better of us and it clouds our judgment, this is what happens to Angela. Luckily, the fog clears and she manages to salvage what’s left of her life.
Overall, another great book from Lindsey Kelk and I would recommend it to anyone that wants a non-serious and funny read.
Disclaimer: I own this book and it was bought by my lovely boyfriend. I have not been paid to review this book and everything I have said is of my own honest opinion.
