"Spring, 1924. Recovering from a broken wartime engagement and a serious illness that left her near death, Lady Helena Montagu-Douglas-Parr vows that for once she will live life on her own terms. Breaking free from the stifling social constraints of the aristocratic society in which she was raised, she travels to France to stay with her free-spirited aunt. For one year, she will simply be Miss Parr. She will explore the picturesque streets of Paris, meet people who know nothing of her past, and pursue her dream of becoming an artist ... [She soon meets] Sam Howard, an irascible and infuriatingly honest correspondent for the Chicago Tribune"--Cover flap.

I loved this book. I would enjoy reading it again. I was pleased that the author brought one of the other characters in her books into the story. Lady Helena was the "nice" person in the other books, engaged to Edward and one of the wealthy and privileged. Destined to marry and be a wife and nothing more. In this story she becomes her own person. She has friends she enjoys and she falls in love which she deserves.

While I enjoyed the author's vision of 1924 Paris I was disappointed at her 'Americanisation' of the characters in the story. The way they talked and related to each other is not consistent with what I understand of behaviours of that time. To be enjoyed as a fanciful love story only.

I was very disappointed in this novel. I look forward to this authors' work and found lack of a plot made the effort to finish the book just not worth it.

This book is a pretty weak and somewhat boring story.
Good bedtime reading! Snore.

This is a hard one to rate, because it's a fast read and enjoyable enough, but it also feels a trifle simplistic. The themes of the book and the journey the heroine undergoes make this feel more like a young adult book than an adult one (which I don't mean as a hit to YA! Just that it's hard for me to believe this protagonist is supposed to be in her late 20s, because her who journey of self-discovery feels like a coming-of-age story that would be more at home with a teenage protagonist). Fans of historical fiction will enjoy the 20s setting and the descriptions of clothing and parties, and there's a nice (though predictable) romantic subplot, but it lacks a certain oomph that would have made it a bit more memorable for me. Still, as I said, worth a read for fans of period pieces.
