    An unashamedly romantic novel from popular French writer Marc Levy. I’ve read quite a few of his love stories and they are all without exception gentle, charming, light and heart-warming, with a very French feel to them, a bit quirky with sparkly dialogue and engaging characters. I suppose overall they don’t amount to very much but I find them really enjoyable and it’s nice on occasion to read something that is no more than it pretends to b...

    I'm going to be upfront and personal here. I am a dyed in the wool Francophile. I get giddy at all things French. Anything to do with France and I'm pretty well sold on the concept. I follow bloggers from France, I buy photography books with photos from France, I dream of the day I can visit the country and I even own salt and pepper shaking in the form of the Eiffel Tower. (Yes, I really do and they are glorious.) So to learn that Marc Levy is a...

    There is much to like in P.S. from Paris. The characters are amiable and charming, and their banter keeps things interesting. There are so many witty one-liners that just reading them alone would be more than entertaining, but it is the introspection on persona and trying to live up to expectations that are most engaging. Both characters are at a crossroads, and their friendship is a respite from the cruel realities of a bad marriage and careers ...

    I picked up this book just by knowing that it was the writer of If only it were true, a sweet and strong message novel that is very successful until today and turned into film in the hands of Steven Spielberg ,starring Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo and released in 2005 which was also a hit with audiences and critics. What I did not know is that exists a Book 2 (I have already looked for so much and I will buy it in Spanish) and it is the con...

    The description blurb does not do this book justice. I picked it up on a whim and am very glad that I did. It's not the sluggish, slow-winding romance that you get from most books labeled as such. It has a quick, excitable pace to it, like a city itself, and the conversations are snappy and fun. I loved the inner dialogue of both protagonists and the way each is accused of mumbling out loud. I found both David and Mia to be relatable but also wit...

    This is a fun and enjoyable read that keeps you wanting more. Mia discovers her husband is having an affair, so she takes off to Paris to stay with her friend, Daisy. Paul, who is a novelist from San Francisco, now resides in Paris. Mia and Paul meet via blind date and even though things are a bit complicated, they can’t help but to see each other in a special light. The synopsis for this book sounded very similar to “Notting Hill,” which I...

    How had I never heard of Marc Levy prior to reading this book?! It was an absolutely wonderful read, and as soon as I wrapped up reading this book I proceeded to immediately make my way through three more of his books. I can tell from going back and reading his other books that his writing has continued to get better with each new book. I appreciate how his stories seem to have a bit of a twist to them and are not utterly predictable. I highly re...

    I enjoyed this book because it was the right book to read at the right time. I wanted something light and fun -- and this fulfilled that wish. (view spoiler)[It was slightly unbelievable as a famous actress goes underground in Paris and, for the most part, no one recognizes her. (hide spoiler)]But I was willing to suspend belief for a fun read. I enjoyed the leading characters and thought the surprise towards the end was clever. I didn't see it c...

    This book is an odd mix. First, don't make the same mistake I did. There is an earlier book, If Only It Were True, that tells the story of Arthur and Lauren. You'll feel less lost reading P.S. From Paris, I think, if you read that one (although I haven't read it myself so I can't really say). The book starts off as a typical modern romance - boy meets girl, boy and girl have disastrous first meeting, boy starts to like girl and girl likes boy, hi...

    Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in return for my honest review. I really liked this story of an American author living in Paris and an English actress hiding in Paris from her philandering husband. The friendship between Mia and Paul is a slow build-as is their romance but I enjoyed their meet cute and their bantering. The story was definitely a 4 star but I took off 1/2 star for the parts of the story that I didn't understand. I think that this m...

    I was blessed enough to be able to download a free E-Arc of the book via Netgally’s “Read Now” option(Meaning that I didn’t have to be approved by the publisher first) in exchange for my honest review of the book which is as follows: I had a hard time getting into the story at the beginning of the book because of some personal confusion about the characters however towards the middle of books I figured out my issue and the characters star...

    I was given the opportunity to read this ebook Arc from NetGalley for an honest review.As a reader and a writer, I give this a 3 star rating. I hadn't read anything from this author before and I guess they just aren't my cup of tea. This book "OK" at best. Nothing bad about it, but nothing stood out, either. It was just a pretty standard romance novel. The only word that comes to mind to describe it is "efficient". The words are well written. Sto...

    A light, romance I found enjoyable because of the setting and witty dialogue. I was unfamiliar with French author Marc Levy and thought it interesting that his protagonists in this book are an English actress and American writer. Both face personal obstacles causing them to escape to Paris. They initially resist efforts by friends to bring them together. I delighted in the development of their friendship.I believe "P.S. from Paris" would be as ex...
