From: Received for free from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
Short Synopsis: A girl gets mugged in Paris and her purse is stolen. In the process she bangs her head and ends up in the hospital. Meanwhile, a guy finds the abondoned purse after the mugger takes out the money. This guy is fascinated with it's contents (including a red notebook) and becomes obsessed with finding the girl.. in a non- agressive sort of way. All sorts of funny things happen due to all sorts of funny events. And in the end. Well, I'm guessing you can guess what happens.
My Response: Very cute! I totally enjoyed it. Maybe a little too contrived, but since that's what's expected, it didn't bother me. I enjoyed the characters and of course the setting! And I really don't know what else to say about it!
Bottom Line: If you're in the mood for a fun quick romantic sort of story set in Paris, this would do the trick!
Let's Talk About: Cute fun books! What do you think? Are you good with them or do you need some deep thinking stuff?
