I heart Lindsey Kelk. The third book from I Heart Series is definitely not a disappointment. This book has left me giggling at some scene (because laughing in public would be inappropriate) and grinning like an idiot.
In I Heart Paris, Angela’s boyfriend, Alex suggested her to a trip to Paris when he was invited for a performance at a festival. In the same time a fashion magazine, Belle, asked her to write an article on underground hotspots in Paris. Angela thought that this trip will be great. But then things started to go wrong. First, her luggage was destroyed (along with her shoes, clothes). Then, she saw Alex with his ex in a bar, Jenny wouldn’t talk to her and someone was trying to sabotage her article. With things falling apart around her, Angela hopped on a train to London to sort things out. But then, she got a second thought. Now she can’t decide if she should go back home to her family or went back to Paris and see Alex.
I love how Lindsey Kelk writes what’s been going through Angela’s mind. You could see that Angela was a fun and a bit crazy at times. That crazy part might be something in common that Angela and I shared. I think that Angela was lucky that she seemed to stumble into good people when she went to a new place. First, she got Jenny in I Heart New York. In Paris, Angela got Alain, another helpful concierge. Angela seemed to think that everyone around her is nice. I wonder what would happen when she met with a mug or something…
I Heart Paris was definitely sweeter and funnier than the second book. I love the crisis that Angela was facing and that not every crisis she faced had a good ending. It makes the story even more realistic. Overall, this is a fun, light read. I’ve read the next book (it was the first book I’ve read from this series) and I’m excited to read I Heart London next.
Book Cover's Description:
Angela is in the City of Love -- but her own lovelife is heading for trouble!
Angela Clark is a British girl living the life dreams are made of in fabulous New York. But she's never been to the romantic capital of the world -- Paris. So when boyfriend Alex suggests a romantic trip there, tying in with his band's tour and Angela writing an insider's guide to the hip city for a glossy fashion mag -- Belle , she jumps at the chance. Soon Angela finds herself meandering along charming streets lined with designer shops, sipping creamy hot chocolate and eating croissants. It's a world away from New York but she could get used to the joie de vivre of Paris. But when Louisa, Angela's best friend shows up from London, it's not quite the happy, girly catch up she'd hoped for and everything in Paris seems to be going from bad to worse. Louisa reminds Angela that her old life is only a train journey away. With Alex spending so much time partying with the band and meeting up with his ex, for the first time in ages, Angela is homesick. Suddenly Angela is questioning her new life in New York and wondering -- is it make or break for her and Alex?
