Jenny Colgan did it again. When I read her books, my mouth is literary watering. All those cakes and cookies and chocolates. And Paris, the most romantic city in the world. What's not to love there?
Anna Trent works in a chocolate factory. When I hear the words chocolate factory, in the very same moment I think of Willy Wonka. So exciting! But, after the accident at the job, Anna ends up in hospital. Next to her, lays her former French teacher treated with chemotherapy. They become friends soon and Claire sends Anna to Paris. It's her last wish and Anna doesn't have a heart to refuse it. Claire sends her to live the life that she never had, and maybe, just maybe, to fix her own mistakes from the past.
There are two main stories in this book. One is the story of Claire, her time spent in Paris, finding the love, losing it, finding it again. Her life story is so full of ups and down, fighting the cancer, looking for the true love, searching for happiness in life. Her emotional story touched my heart and provoked tears in my eyes. She seems like an guardian angel to Anna because she shows up in the very same moment when Anna needs someone. On the other side, there is the story of Anna, who loses her toes in an accident and starts to build her life again. The trip to Paris is her chance to start all over again, and maybe to find her love in the most romantic place on the planet.
