May Giveaway on PatriciaParisienne: “Je T’aime, Me Neither”

Paris is the city of love.

All kinds of love. People flock to Paris for a myriad of reasons, including simply because, well, it’s Paris! My love of music, my family, and the city itself brought me back to the City of Lights. For some, it’s a charming Frenchman or woman, others an exciting new career. The mystique and thrill of Paris are the perfect ingredients for an adventure, especially one in romance. Want to know what these passionate moments are really like?

Je T’Aime, Me Neither is a glimpse into the life of a fabulous Canadian woman living and loving in Paris. April Lily Heise’s novel had me glued to her words, laughing out loud and cringing along with her. (Valentino’s twist…whaaaat?!)  I loved how despite some of love’s international ups and downs, Lily’s attitude was so positive. On the travel front, we readers get to see Paris through a fun-loving, young expat’s eyes. SO looking forward to trying some of these fabulous places she mentions!

Dating in Paris can include quite a few misadventures and hilarious (or not…) cultural misunderstandings. An honest and fun representation of what it is truly like to find love in Paris, this book is a must-read. It’s a perfect book to take on a train ride, a beach trip, or just to relax with. I had so much fun reading about Lily’s adventures! (Believe me, you want to hear some of these stories!)
