From Paris With Love by Samantha Tonge

Every girl dreams of hearing those four magical words Will you marry me? But no-one tells you what’s supposed to happen next…
Fun-loving Gemma Goodwin knows she should be revelling in her happy-ever-after. Except when her boyfriend Lord Edward popped the question, after a whirlwind romance, although she didn’t say no….she didn’t exactly say yes either!
A month-long cookery course in Paris could be just the place to make sure her heart and her head are on the same page… And however disenchanted with romance Gemma is feeling, the City of Love has plenty to keep her busy; the champagne is decadently quaffable, the croissants almost too delicious, and shopping is a national past-time! In fact, everything in Paris makes her want to say Je t’aime… Except Edward!
But whilst Paris might offer plenty of distractions from wedding planning – including her new friends, mysterious Joe and hot French rockstar Blade - there’s no reason she couldn’t just try one or two couture dresses is there? Just for fun…


When Gemma and Edward arrive in Paris they think this is going to be the most romantic month of their lives. Edward has asked Gemma to marry him, but she isn't ready yet. Hopefully being in Paris will change her mind. Gemma is there to work, she's helping in the kitchen of a restaurant to improve her cooking skills. Besides writing about an important event and his experiences in Paris Edward is also working there. He's the perfect host and the customers love him. Working together and exploring the romantic capital of France in their free time sounds like a perfect plan, but in reality things aren't too great between Gemma and Edward. There's mystery man Joe, who needs Gemma's help. And the cunning and gorgeous actress Monique is trying to come between the famous British couple. Even though she and Edward have got some major problems Gemma is making the best of her stay. She loves the kitchen, enjoys Disneyland and shopping and she quickly finds new friends. One of them is a handsome rock star named Blade. Could Gemma still be happy even though her life has changed so much in the city of love?
I already loved Doubting Abbey and I enjoyed From Paris With Love even more! Gemma is such a warm and tough main character. She can do everything when she puts her mind to it. She has her own plans and they always work out one way or another. She manages to save herself in every situation, no matter how awkward or dangerous they are. I loved the theme of From Paris With Love, it's a little bit mysterious, but with a lot of humor and romance. While reading this book there was a smile plastered on my face the entire time. I liked it a lot. And of course it also helps that this novel is set in Paris. I liked reading about my favorite city and wanted to go there immediately to make some new memories. I loved Edward and Gemma's very different views of the same city. There's also a new character in this book, the gorgeous and sweet Blade. Who doesn't want to read about a cute rock star who also has manners? From Paris With Love is such a perfect and romantic summer read!
