Can life really turn on a dime,
a missed bus—
or a stuck pastry shop door?

Chloe Dillard’s life has always been complicated. Her mother is a neurotic romance novelist and her boyfriend, Mathew, has been pressuring her to go “all the way”—even as one of her own best friends offers to accommodate him.

But after The Worst Night of Her Life, Chloe escapes on her Senior Class trip to the swoon-worthy city of Paris which takes her mind off her troubles—temporarily. On the final leg of her dream trip, Chloe squeezes in one final run for a last-minute box of decadent pastries. Add a stuck door, subtract a broken four-inch heel from her cute strappy sandals, and Chloe ends up one stuck girl on the bakery shop floor with a sprained ankle.

Rescued by the shop owner’s dreamy son with chocolate-syrup eyes, the beautiful city of Paris suddenly becomes Chloe’s personal secret adventure. And even though Jean-Paul, the oh-so-kind La Patisserie shop boy is the gentlemanly guy Chloe has always dreamed of, even he has a girlfriend.

The police are tracking her down as a run-away, Mom’s having a nervous breakdown over her daughter’s “disappearance”, and Chloe’s just trying to have a Happily-Ever-After even as her dreams with Matt are swirling down the drain.

Could being lost in the city of Paris be just what the doctor ordered? What’s a girl to do in the most romantic city in the world?
I just cannot resist a book with delicious pastries. Especially when the book is set in Paris. And the book cover is just adorable!

Chloe is going to make a big decision about her relationship with her boyfriend, Mathew after she went back from her trip to Paris with her French class. But Chloe missed her tour bus when she decided to take a last minute trip to her favorite Patisserie shop in Paris. She is stuck in the Patisserie shop with a sprained ankle. That is when the shop owner’s son, Jean-Paul rescued her. 

I love Chloe. She’s a sweet and funny girl. But there are times when I just wanted to shake some senses into her, especially when Mathew was involved. I love Chloe’s obsession with French pastries. I wish I was in a Patisserie shop in Paris, devouring those delicious pastries like beignets.  Jean-Paul is absolutely dreamy. He’s the kind of boy I imagined a French boy would be. The relationship between Chloe and Jean-Paul was short. But really sweet. I enjoy reading their adventure and trips in Paris. The author did a great job in describing Paris and pastries!

Overall, I’m in love with this book. Paris Cravings is definitely a delicious read with humor and cute romance.

I received a copy of this book from the author/eBooks for Review in exchange for an honest review.
