Kiss Me in Paris

Reviewed by:

Writing partners Stephanie Elliot and James Noble have teamed up under the pen name of Catherine Rider to produce a contemporary romantic adventure set in Paris. Their authentic descriptions of the City of Love, its architecture and famous landmarks, transport the reader on a pleasurable journey, narrated from two points of view. The female protagonist is Serena, an introverted and determined college student on a whirlwind weekend trip to Paris to recreate the steps of her parents honeymoon as a tribute to her deceased father and a memory scrapbook for her grieving mother. Jean-Luc, a moody and serious photography student, changes his weekend plans to rectify a disappointing  photo project, and tours Serena, viewing his beloved home through her eyes and his camera. The trip goes awry when Serena’s precise timeline fails, and the two new friends experience friction, humor, and attraction while making special memories. A delightful epilogue will satisfy young adult readers as they enjoy this emotional journey about self-discovery, grieving, and falling in love in the world’s most romantic city – Paris.
