Wow – I did NOT enjoy this book!
I was in a Paris mood, looking for something “scenic” that would recall memories of past visits to Paris - instead I got drippy, insipid, BORING drivel.
The characters were flat and unbelievable, the plot was uninteresting, the flashbacks were unexciting, the story uninspired… so why did I read on? Because I kept hoping things would improve; how much worse could they get since the book started off on such a low?
The narration was a farce. The French accents were so extremely comically bad, to me it felt like what Americans think French people should sound like (when they are making fun of them!) It was over the top absurdly bad – everyone was a cliché of Clouseau. “Ziss iz zee best place to ave crrrrrroisant! Come ma belle, let us enjoy zee sun. It tiz a bootifool afternoon,non”
ugh, I can’t even fake it.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Perhaps a different narrator. I found this one grated on my nerves.
What did you like best about this story?
The "story" was intriquing. The writing and characters and narration were not.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
She tried too hard to be cute.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Like I said, the story was intriguing. Unfortunately, that couldn't carry me through to the end. :)
