Editorial Reviews

Review

"... a can't-put-down-book... never stops being an absorbing adventure--not until the gratifying final moments... A lovely ode to Paris, friendship, spontaneity and forks--both on the plate and in the road." -- Kirkus Reviews (January 2015 Featured Review)


"The story is about food and obsession--but it's also about Amy's discovery of her self outside of food, love, and life's slings and arrows... [an] unusual blend of a fictional story, a feisty, believable protagonist's journeys, and the underlying purpose and realities of dieting and weight loss that all combine to make for a fun, vigorous read." -- Midwest Book Review


"This adventure is replete with delectable food, poignancy, humor, dark secrets and portents of illumination--which is as it should be for a story set in the City of Light." -- Bellingham Herald


"Discover a Paris that few casual tourists see--not the romantic Woody Allen Paris but a multinational, multilingual Paris of street hustlers, puddles of pee, diesel fumes..." -- Paris Voice


"I couldn't believe how wonderful and adventurous this title would be until I read it. This is an addictive read that will keep readers guessing on every single page." -- Readers' Favorite


"Readers who value a well-crafted story and love the sights, sounds, foods and options of Paris will enjoy this tale and its surprising sequence of events." -- ASU Magazine


"What a story. It will make you smile, make you sad, plus every emotion in between!" --The Good Life France


"A galvanizing debut novel, at once hilarious, harrowing, and heartwarming. Smart, sassy, a real gem." -- Will North, bestselling author of The Long Walk Home


"Smart, funny, deeply human, and compulsively readable--and who can resist a trip to Paris?" -- Christine Johnson-Duell, author of Italian Lessons


"In this terrific novel, a seemingly frothy American-woman-traveling-impulsively-to-Paris tale soon steps deeply into an existential abyss. Beneath Burns's tightly paced narrative, such questions as 'Do we really love those whom we think we love?' 'Whom can we trust?' and 'Can we even trust ourselves?' yawn open like the catacombs that lurk underneath Paris's storied streets. The only certainty is the precision of Burns's surgical examination of the human heart and its labyrinthine contradictions." -- Donna Stonecipher, author of The Cosmopolitan


"It has a very twisting plot line--you never know what will happen to Amy next, and (unlike so many books) I had no idea how she was going to end up."
