Review: One Christmas in Paris by Mandy Baggot

One Christmas in Paris: The perfect feel good Christmas romanceThey say Paris is the City of Love, so bring your je ne sais quoiand don’t forget the mistletoe!

Ava and her best friend Debs arrive in Paris just as the snow starts to fall. The Eiffel Tower glitters gold and the scent of spiced wine is all around, but all Ava can think about is Leo, her no-good, cheating ex.

Debs is on a mission to make Ava smile again, and as they tour the Christmas markets, watch lamplight glittering on the river Seine, and eat their body weight in pain-au-chocolat, Ava remembers there’s more to life than men ... Until they cross paths with handsome, mysterious photographer Julien with his French accent and hazelnut eyes that seem to see right inside her.

Ava can’t ignore the intense chemistry between them, but her fingers have been burned before and she can’t forget it, especially when her ex, Leo, starts texting again. Can Ava really trust Julien – and what exactly is his secret?

Will Ava go home with a broken heart, or will she find true love amongst the cobbled streets of Paris?

Join Ava and Julien in the most romantic city in the world this Christmas, as they discover the importance of being true to themselves, and learn how to follow their hearts.

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars

Ava needs to get away from her cheating ex boyfriend and her pushy mother who wants her to drop a dress size or two and go on a modelling shoot. So when Best friend Debs invites her along on a working (of sorts) holiday to France she jumps at the chance. 
Julien is lovely. In all the right ways, but especially when he sees Ava for the first time. Seeing her through his eyes was one of the best bits for me, he was able to see the beauty in everything. 

Baggot has once again delivered a book that will keep you entwined in its pages from start through to finish. Not only will this book make you wish you were in Paris with Ava and Julien exploring the city together, but it will make you wish you could devour the food too.
