“Le Vie En Rose Bookshop owner Sarah Smith has been offered the opportunity to exchange bookshops with her new Parisian friend for 6 months! And saying yes is a no-brainer – after all, what kind of a romantic would turn down a trip to Paris…for Christmas? Even if it does mean leaving the irresistible Ridge Warner behind, Sarah’s sure she’s in for the holiday of a lifetime – complete with all the books she can read! Imagining days wandering around Shakespeare & Co, munching on croissants, sipping café au laits and watching the snow fall on the Champs-Élysées Sarah boards the plane. But will her dream of a Parisian Happily-Ever-After come true? Or will Sarah realise that the dream of a Christmas fairytale in the city of love isn’t quite as rosy in reality… “

I really liked how based in reality this book was for the most part. In this day and age with the internet it is hard to own a bookstore and that was reflected in the book. Also the problems and insecurities of having a long distance relationship i felt were accurately reflected in this book. The only thing I felt was a bit off was the way Paris was represented, like the reader is wearing rose coloured glasses. I’m sure there are areas of Paris that are picturesque but not all of it is for certain. The reason I say for the most part is because in the end everyone gets a happy ever after. But I must admit that the romantic in me enjoyed that everyone got a happily ever after.
