Publisher's Summary

Forever a girl obsessed with all things French, sweet freak Amy Thomas landed a gig as rich as the purest dark chocolate: leave Manhattan for Paris to write ad copy for Louis Vuitton. Working on the Champs-Élysées, strolling the charming streets, and exploring the best patisseries and boulangeries, Amy marveled at the magnificence of the City of Light.
But does falling in love with one city mean turning your back on another? As much as Amy adored Paris, there was part of her that felt like a humble chocolate chip cookie in a sea of pristine macarons. Paris, My Sweet explores how the search for happiness can be as fleeting as a salted caramel souffle's rise, as intensely satisfying as molten chocolate cake, and about how the life you're meant to live doesn't always taste like the one you envisioned.
Part love letter to Paris, part love letter to New York, and total devotion to all things sweet, Paris, My Sweet is a treasure map for anyone with a hunger for life.

It was a nice surprise

I actually purchased this book because it had one my all time favorite narrators: Cassandra Campbell. (the other fav is Bernadette Dunne)

It was a good mixture of culinary speak and a interesting story. Just moving to NYC, I liked that she gave reviews of great dessert places. It made me hungry listening to it at times since she spoke of amazing desserts.I now have a list of places that I need to go to so I can enjoy some of these amazing treats.

One complaint, (which really shouldn't be one since it was based on a true story), I kept wanting it to become a romance story. I wanted so bad for her to meet her mr. right in the city of lights, but it wasn't about that. It was about a gal who loved desserts and was in the middle of deciding what she should do, stay in paris or go back to nyc.

Chocolate and travel are a perfect combination

I saw this book at Barnes and Nobles and immediately came home to buy the audio copy. It was everything I wanted it to be; full of humor, real life situations, travel, and just like it promised- SWEETS!

I loved following the author on her journey. There are some great life lessons in this about moving away from friends and family and the realities of following your dreams.
