Angela is in the city of love — but romance is taking a nose-dive! When Angela Clark’s boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance. But even as she’s falling for the joie de vivre of Paris, someone’s conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a tete-a-tete with his ex in a local bar, Angela’s dreams of Parisian passion all start crashing down around her. With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can’t decide if should stay and face the music or run away home!
Being new to the ‘I Heart’ series, I didn’t quite know what to expect from ‘I Heart Paris,’ and was new to Angela’s story. Once I’d found my bearings with who’s who in terms of characters ( although knowledge of the previous two books isn’t needed to read this one) I couldn’t put it down both for good reasons and bad, (I seem to have been on a bad spiral of ratings recently.) Angela is a fun character and it doesn’t take long to warm to her and relate to her. The cover is right, perfect for Sex and the City fans however as they say, when you get hooked in easily and fast, be prepared to feel the complete opposite just as fast. I don’t think I’ve ever been envious of a character in a book before. At first I felt this way as Angela lives in my favourite city and gets to go to Paris too. Lindsey Kelk puts in many plot twists and although I did try to guess what was going to happen, the end still surprised me. The novelty wore off as I did not like her relationship and the way she so naively went along with everything even when they did show suspicions very early on, you’d be silly to not notice or question it either that or I am becoming more impatient at peoples stupidities in life lately. Each to their own opinions with novels so I cannot say whether I would recommend this novel or not in that perspective if I want to be fair about it.
2/5 stars from me.
