US Journal Review - Paris Imperfect

An encouraging review from the US journal Booklist: "Twice-married Englishwoman Clio Forrester is living what she thinks is the perfect life in Paris, working as a private tour guide. She and her son Alex..live with her boyfriend Philippe in his pristine flat. Philippe is everything a woman wants in a man—cultured, handsome, well-off. So what if he constantly wants her to lose weight or if his mother does not bother to hide her disdain? Everything starts to change, however, after she conducts one of many tours of the French battlefields. She is escorting an American couple, who gives her grief, and a handsome Canadian, who gives her goose bumps...Vereker delivers a triumphant tale of a modern Englishwoman living abroad that will appeal to American readers looking for a sophisticated romance."

Good news: have just discovered that Paris Imperfect will be out in trade paperback (the large kind of pb) in September at £10.99.

I meant to say that, unfortunately, the price has gone up again for the hardback at the Book Depository, but they still offer world wide free delivery.
