REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
Like many “finding yourself” novels, this one starts out in England and ends up in Paris- always a promising start.
Flailing English major Annie Haley has never known her real father, and the only thing she does know about her mother’s past seems to have something to do with a book about the real life, long-lost Duchess of Marlborough hiding out in her old age in a tiny English village… a place her mother suddenly needs to visit. There Annie is left to her own devices, where she finds finds herself immersed in the puzzle of her mother’s past, and caught up in the love story between the writer of the mysterious book and and the supposed duchess’ caretaker. As everybody knows, lost love, deception, and finding the truth about your father are all serious matters, right? Wrong! This one is really pretty funny. Check it out!
I’ll See You in Paris will be available on February 9th
