Synopsis (from

“You are in Paris, the City of Love. You must not be so controlled. Here, have another glass. I promise you, it will not hurt.”
When 29-year-old event planner Chloe Turner wakes up penniless and without a passport in the Plaza Athénée Hotel in Paris, she only has a few fleeting memories of Claude, the suave French man who convinced her to have that extra glass of wine before taking all of her possessions and slipping out the door. As the overly organized, go-to gal for her three drama queen younger sisters, her anxiety-ridden father, and her needy clients, Chloe is normally prepared for every disaster that comes her way. But with her wedding to her straight-laced, lawyer fiancé back in DC only days away and a French con-man on the loose with her engagement ring, this is one catastrophe she never could have planned for.
As Chloe tries to figure out a way home, she runs into an even bigger problem—the police are after her due to suspicious activity now tied to her bank account. Chloe’s only hope at retrieving her passport and clearing her name lies in the hands of a rugged, undercover agent named Julien who has a few secrets of his own. As Chloe follows this mysterious, and—although she doesn’t want to admit it—sexy French man on a wild chase through the sun-kissed countryside of France, she discovers a magical world she never knew existed and has to decide if the perfectly ordered life she’s built for herself back home is really what she wants after all.
My thoughts:  This was another one of my freebie finds on for my Kindle app on my iPad.   I must say that this book offered me much more than what I originally expected.  I admit that given that it is only found in ebook form, I thought it was going to be a pretty cheesy, simple book that would get me through some workouts in the gym.  It did get me through some elliptical workouts at the gym, but it also gave me a really enjoyable read.
I enjoyed the main character, the humor, the bit of intrique/mystery, the description of the trip through the French countryside, and of course the romance that any great chick lit book offers!
Overall, a great, romantic chick lit book.  When I got to the end, I found myself hoping that there would be a follow-up book to this story to let us know what happens.  Here is hoping!
I am certainy glad I happened to run into this book for free!  Definitely worth the read.
And remember,
Books Are Life,
