Book Worm #3 I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk

Here we are with the third post in my new series and the third of the 'I heart...' novels. I seem to be whizzing through these because they are such easy, great reads. I read this one in a couple of days when I was on holiday and received the next in line in the post today. My bookshelf really is starting to fill up.

As usual, if you are reading them with me but haven't finished Hollywood, then this might contain spoilers.

Angela is confused with the new dialema of whether or not to move in with her boyfriend, Alex. After being hurt before, she doesn't mind taking it slowly this time, but she might be in danger of going so slowly that there is no longer a decision to make. 

She gets offered a new job at Belle Magazine - one of the leading fashion magazines in the world. They want her to do a travel piece in Paris whilst she is there with her boyfriend for his 30th birthday. Little does she know that she is not the only one with a past in a different country. Paris may not turn out to be as romantic as she might of previously hoped.

Being a journalism graduate, I want to see my byline in black and white and therefore feel I can relate to Angela's struggles in Paris. The need to get copy completed on a short deadline isn't something to take lightly. It is the gateway to a new way of life and they don't come thick and fast if you can't take the heat when given the opportunity.

She misses home dearly. She's missing Louise and perhaps even though she doesn't wish to admit it, her mum and dad as well. When she seeks support from those who are meant to be closest to her in New York but doesn't find it, you can understand some of the choices she makes unlike with the last two books.

It's almost like you're watching Angela grow up and willing her to make the right decisions whilst laughing along with all the wrong ones like a good friend. In the end she is still Angela, and after a drink or two she will always end up spewing on the bathroom floor or smacking 6 shades of purple into her eye socket when she falls over.

Thankfully I have never thrown up after drink, nor have I had a black eye, but there is definitely room for some serious shopping in Paris and a pair of Louboutins or two.

  1. Sounds like a really relatable, enoyable and fun read! I am looking for a new book right now, just finished a series and am officially book-less! =(
    But I'll look for this one to remedy that!
