Nothing is what it seems in this highly praised novel about a food-obsessed woman who sneaks away to Paris without telling anyone. Not even her husband. Once there, she’s robbed, stalked, arrested, and kidnapped (almost). Worse, her issues have come right along with her.
A suspenseful, moving and at times hilarious novel about love, loss, Paris, food and finding yourself.
Amy is 29, tired of living in her hometown of Phoenix, and at odds with her very predictable engineer husband. When her closest girlfriend dies, she makes a spectacularly rash decision that takes her to Paris, her dream city. But maybe not the best destination, as Amy is always on a diet and is plagued by irksome dieting “rules.” In Paris she is robbed, stalked, arrested, kidnapped (almost) and—worse—finds that her problems have come right along with her. Grab a croissant and settle in for a decidedly non-touristy trip to the City of Light.
