Did I enjoy this book? 
This book was slow, but I did eventually like it. Mia is a movie star whose husband is cheating on her. She escapes to visit a friend in Paris and uses the friend’s online dating profile to meet a new friend. Paul is a recluse author living in Paris. His friends try to convince him to socialize more and set up an online dating profile against his wishes. After the world’s most awkward blind date, Paul and Mia decide to continue their friendship. After a number of different mishaps, the two friends decide to try a romantic relationship instead.

This book is a cute romantic comedy. It’s got a different premise than a standard romance, and you are genuinely pulling for the characters throughout the story. The story was very well written. It’s obvious why this author is so popular.

 

Would I recommend it? Absolutely. This was a good summer read while I was on vacation.

About the book – from Goodreads: From Marc Levy, the most-read French author alive today, comes a modern-day love story between a famous actress hiding in Paris and a bestselling writer lying to himself. They knew their friendship was going to be complicated, but love—and the City of Lights—just might find a way.

On the big screen, Mia plays a woman in love. But in real life, she’s an actress in need of a break from her real-life philandering husband—the megastar who plays her romantic interest in the movies. So she heads across the English Channel to hide in Paris behind a new haircut, fake eyeglasses, and a waitressing job at her best friend’s restaurant.

Paul is an American author hoping to recapture the fame of his first novel. When his best friend surreptitiously sets him up with Mia through a dating website, Paul and Mia’s relationship status is “complicated.”

Even though everything about Paris seems to be nudging them together, the two lonely ex-pats resist, concocting increasingly far-fetched strategies to stay “just friends.” A feat easier said than done, as fate has other plans in store. Is true love waiting for them in a postscript?
