Paris is Always a Good Idea
From the author of The Ingredients of Love Love is on the cards ...Rosalie Laurent is a graphic artist and proud owner of a little postcard shop in Saint-Germain. Her specialty is producing 'wishing cards', and every birthday Rosalie sends a card inscribed with her heart's desire fluttering down from the Eiffel Tower - but none of her wishes have ever been fulfilled. Then one day a famous author of children's books enters her store and her life. When the elderly gentleman asks her to illustrate his new (and probably last) book, Rosalie is only too glad to accept, and the two very different maverick artists become friends. Rosalie's wishes seem to be coming true at last, until a clumsy American professor accuses her of plagiarism. Rosalie is unsure whether love or trouble is blowing through her door, but when in doubt, she knows that Paris is Always a Good Idea when looking for love and happiness. PRAISE FOR THE INGREDIENTS OF LOVE "These are The Ingredients of Love: a delightful heroine, a mysterious hero, romance, Paris, and beaucoup de charme!" Ellen Sussman, New York Times bestselling author of French Lessons "I loved every moment of being transported to Paris in this charming, disarming novel about matters of the heart."
