Publisher's Summary

When Jennifer arrived at Madame Chic's Parisian apartment as a foreign exchange student, Madame Chic took her under her wing and tutored her in the secrets of how the French elevate the little things in life to the art of living. Years later Jennifer was back in California with a husband, two young daughters, a dog, and her first home. She began to think about Madame Chic's home - how the breakfast table was set beautifully the night before, the music that always played in the background, and the calm of Madame and Monsieur Chic's ritual cocktail hour together. Jennifer wanted that life. She decided to see what would happen if she didn't perform her chores impatiently or mindlessly...and could live like Madame Chic.
At Home with Madame Chic reveals the secrets to having a happy, fulfilling, and passionate life at home. Jennifer explains the morning send-off need not be chaotic, it's possible to look stylish with minimal time and effort, a little forethought makes it possible to serve a home-cooked dinner every night, and details like music and scented candles can set the tone for the whole family's evening.

Good book, lazy narrator.

Would be better if the narrator could pronounce the foreign words she uses. Unfortunately, she didn't take the time to do her homework and find out. I laugh out loud sometimes at her ridiculous pronunciation.

Sounds like a robot.

What did you like best about At Home with Madame Chic? What did you like least?

I really like the points that this author was making. A more formal, European lifestyle with more attention paid to good food, an organized home and planning are things I would love to here more about. But 3 hrs in to this 4 hr book I can not listen to this narration anymore. I'm pretty sure it's just a computer generated version of Siri reading. It's comically bad.


Would you recommend At Home with Madame Chic to your friends? Why or why not?

I can not recommend the audio version.


How could the performance have been better?

I've heard the author speak on her youtube videos. She could have narrated this herself 1000 times better.
