The Little Book shop on the Seine

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  It’s The Holiday on the Champs-Élysées in a great big love letter to Paris, charming old bookstores and happily-ever-afters!

When bookshop owner Sarah Smith is offered the opportunity for a job exchange with her Parisian friend Sophie, saying yes is a no-brainer—after all, what kind of romantic would turn down six months in Paris? Sarah is sure she’s in for the experience of a lifetime—days spent surrounded by literature in a gorgeous bookshop, and the chance to watch the snow fall on the Eiffel Tower. Plus, now she can meet up with her journalist boyfriend, Ridge, when his job takes him around the globe.

But her expectations cool faster than her café au lait soon after she lands in the City of Light—she’s a fish out of water in Paris. The customers are rude, her new coworkers suspicious and her relationship with Ridge has been reduced to a long-distance game of phone tag, leaving Sarah to wonder if he’ll ever put her first over his busy career. As Christmas approaches, Sarah is determined to get the shop—and her life—back in order…and make her dreams of a Parisian happily-ever-after come true.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Book shop owners + Paris + love + sprinkles of mysteries = The Little Book Shop on the Seine.  Very enjoyable and I was hooked right away.  Love the characters (even the mean girl!).  I didn't realize this was a follow up to The Little Book Shop on the Corner, however, it stands on its own.  I do want to go read the first book though!  Raisin has a lot of books that really spark my interest.  So glad I found another author's books to enjoy.
