Keeley Andrews has had a pretty rough year. Her life has been turned upside down and now she’s very much under the gaze of her over-protective mother and feeling a little lost. When an email arrives out of the blue inviting her to spend an all expenses fortnight in Paris just before Christmas it feels like a perfect solution. Taking her best friend Rach with her as support, Keeley prepares to meet the mother of her kidney donor.
Ethan Bouchard has had an equally traumatic year. Losing his best friend Ferne has hit him really hard. Now it looks like he is about to lose his beloved hotel chain as well and he really is at his lowest ebb.
As Keeley and Ethan keep running into each other in the magical streets of festive Paris it begins to feel like fate might be trying to tell them something. A Perfect Paris Christmas is a really evocative journey around a beautiful city. Like all Mandy’s books she always manages to create a landscape that makes you want to hop on a plane and go and join her characters. This book is slightly different to her normal stories. There is a lot more depth to this story with Keeley facing some really difficult physical and emotional situations. This really does makes you think as well as being a beautiful story. It makes for a perfect Christmas read.
