I don’t read many memoirs but I couldn’t resist Seven Letters from Paris by Samantha Verant, an American woman living in France. Here in Australia, it’s being compared to Almost French by Sarah Turnbull, which I loved.
Here’s the teaser:
And here’s the blurb:
Samantha’s life is falling apart – she’s lost her job, her marriage is on the rocks and she’s walking dogs to keep the wolf from the door. When she stumbles across seven love letters from the handsome Frenchman she fell head over heels forin Paris when she was 19, she can’t help but wonder, what if? One carefully worded, very belated email apology, it’s clear that sometimes love does give you a second chance. Jetting off to France to reconnect with a man you knew for just one day is crazy – but it’s the kind of crazy Samantha’s been waiting for her whole life. Truth may be stranger than fiction but sometimes it’s better than your wildest dreams. Deliciously funny, honest and beyond romantic, Seven Letters is the perfect feel-good gift for any woman with a heartbeat.
Sound good? Would you read this book? You can buy it and read an extract here. There’s even a book trailer complete with some cheesy French music.
