Seven Letters From Paris by Samantha Verant

Published: October 7, 2014
Number of pages: 272
Genre: Memoir

Twenty years, seven letters, and one long-lost love of a lifetime

At age 40, Samantha Verant's life is falling apart-she's jobless, in debt, and feeling stuck... until she stumbles upon seven old love letters from Jean-Luc, the sexy Frenchman she'd met in Paris when she was 19. With a quick Google search, she finds him, and both are quick to realize that the passion they felt 20 years prior hasn't faded with time and distance.

Samantha knows that jetting off to France to reconnect with a man that she only knew for one sun-drenched, passion-filled day is crazy-but it's the kind of crazy she's been waiting for her whole life.

What did I think of this book:
I really enjoyed this book. It was a true-life fairy tale come true. The writing style of the author really made this book easy to read. I liked how she included the seven letters throughout the book and not all in one spot.  Every woman dreams of finding her own Jean-Luc and Samantha really did find him. It was nice how everything worked out for her and how she had the courage to try and find her Frenchman from twenty years ago. Samantha also gave you a glimpse into both her's and Jean-Luc's past relationships and how they found their way back to each other. A nice beach read. 

What did I think of the cover:
I thought the cover was very nice and simple. I like the Eiffel Tower with the heart stamp on it and how that was then incorporated at the beginning of each chapter. After reading the book you will get the reason why their is a hummingbird on the cover. 

About the author:
Samantha VĂ©rant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, French chef. She lives in southwestern France, where she's able to explore all of her passions, and where she's married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met in 1989, but ignored for twenty years.
