Review: Kiss Me in Paris by Catherine Rider

Book Blurb

The delightful follow-up to Kiss Me in New York.

Serena Fuentes won’t waste one moment of her whirlwind trip to Paris. She has it all mapped out, right down to the photos she will take, and the last thing she wants is a change in plans.

Yet suddenly she’s touring the city with Jean-Luc, a French friend of her sister’s boyfriend. He has to take pictures of his own if he ever hopes to pass his photography class, and his project totally slows Serena down.

One minute they’re bickering, the next minute they’re bonding … and soon they’re exploring corners of Paris together that Serena never imagined. Could they also be falling in love?

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Serena is on a mission.  She wants to experience Paris just as her mom and dad did on their honeymoon.  She plans to make a scrape book for her mother, so the memory of her father doesn’t fade.  She even has a set itinerary.
The author, of course, creates situations that stop her from following it.  First her mother can’t come and second her sister isn’t available.   I love how she is paired with a stranger who tags along for his own reasons.  Then nothing goes right.  Serena can’t believe how her trip is turning out.  John-Luc is her companion and seems to be causing more issues than helping.  It is fun to read the situations they find themselves.  They are so different that their views are interesting.  They bicker constantly because of their differences.

I like how Serena’s grief is more about her than her mother as she first thought.  She starts working through her sadness with John-Luc’s help which surprises her.  John-Luc has his own issues which you learn farther in the story.  He doesn’t realize he has them until his ex shows up in the story.  It is a fun read and I liked how Serena’s roommate is Charlotte from the first book.  I liked seeing Charlotte and Anthony again.  It was a great read.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
