When Poppy finds a postcard from Paris, sent by an aunt she didn’t know existed, she books a flight to France to investigate. Just days after arriving in Paris, she accidentally lands herself a job thanks to a case of mistaken identity.

To complicate matters further, she soon starts to fall for her new boss. Falling in love with your boss is never a good idea and she knows it. But when he makes her an offer she can’t refuse, her heart just might win the battle against reason and logic.

Review new 2021

This is a lovely romantic novel from author Holly Willow. The book is set in Boston, Massachusetts and Paris, France. It tells the tale of thirty-five-years-old Poppy who thought she was happy and that her life was settled. She was happily engaged to Daniel and enjoying her job. Then in the blink of an eye, everything changed.

Not quite sure what was going to happen next in her life Poppy flies to Paris, France after seeing a postcard from there from an aunt she never knew existed. This is Poppy’s story of what happens when she is in the capital of Love.

The book was exceptionally well written with good use of language, the sentence “fascination of a virologist peeking at a new strain of Ebola through a microscope” is an example of the authors varied use of words and phrases.

The theme was interesting with plenty of twists throughout. I loved the characters, especially Selma who was clearly defined as larger than life and had a good, generous, heart.

I found the story moved along at a nice pace and was very easy to read and the plot unfolded with some unusual and intriguing ideas. The outcome was a little bit predictable but in no way did it detract me from enjoying this book.

This is the perfect read for a cold or wet day, where you can curl up on the sofa! Well done Holly Willow for this amazing read and I will definitely be recommending this romantic novel to all my friends.
