Wonderful review and Barb’s post had me green with envy!

Wouldn’t you just love to attend a cooking class in Paris? I attended one in Provence which was great but one in Paris would be the icing on the cake.

That would be incredible.

Congratulations on the great review.

Thanks so much, Rebecca.

I agree with the walkability of Paris. Thanks for the photos, which help me reminisce. 😀

That is one of the great things about Paris, is that you can walk everywhere. I loved the pictures Barb included in the post. Glad they brought back great memories.

Heading over to read the rest!

Congratulations on another wonderful review, Darlene. The reviewer is absolutely right about the way you so deftly incorporate geography into the story. Your books should be in all schools.

Thanks, Debra. I appreciate that.

What a fantastic review. This makes me want to return to Paris and just wander around.

I know! I feel the same. Paris is a great wander around place.

I know, I’m still grinning from ear to ear.

A walking cooking class. Now I am intrigued.
