Review: From Paris with love by Samantha Tonge


From Paris With Love cover


“From the bestselling author of Doubting Abbey

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…”

Elder Park Book Reviews:

“Gemma and Edward are back for their next hilarious adventure. Samantha Tonge pulled out all the stops for this one and it is larger than life. From “Paris with love” is the follow up book to “Doubting Abbey” where we first met Edward, as Gemma impersonated his Cousin Abbey to win a reality television show and feel in love. From “ Paris with love” can be read as a stand alone novel but I recommend you read “Doubting Abbey” because it was so much fun. Samantha Tonge brings Paris alive with all sights and sounds of the metro and Eiffel tower but adds her own unique je ne sais quoi to make the city truly come alive. I have to admit I now have a literary crush on Edward. He is such an amazing character who has really come into his own and proved himself to be a modern day Mr. Darcy. Gemma is just as bonkers as ever. Within minutes of getting off the plane from England, Gemma is embroiled in a intrigue of Emma Peel proportions. “From Paris with love” is a tour de force of a novel that with compel you to read from cover to cover in one sitting. I can not wait for Gemma and Edward’s next adventure. I highly recommend. Be warned, this book is so funny – you will laugh out loud and chances of falling in love with Edward are very high.”
