Review of One Christmas in Paris by Mandy Baggot - Five **


How many croissants does it take to mend a broken heart?

Ava and her best friend Debs arrive in Paris just as the snow starts to fall. The Eiffel Tower glitters gold, but all Ava can think about is Leo, her no-good, cheating ex.

Debs is on a mission to make Ava smile again, and as they tour the Christmas markets, and eat their body weight in pain-au-chocolat, Ava remembers there’s more to life than men... Until they cross paths with sizzling hot, oh-so-mysterious photographer Julien, with his French accent and hazelnut eyes that seem to see right inside her.

Ava can’t ignore the intense chemistry between them, but she can’t help but feel he’s hiding something. Her fingers have been burned before and she can’t forget it, especially when her ex, Leo, starts texting again. Can Ava really trust Julien – and what exactly is his secret?

Will Ava go home with a broken heart, or will she find true love in Paris?

Join Ava and Julien in the most romantic city in the world this Christmas, as they discover the importance of being true to themselves, and learn how to follow their hearts.

One Christmas in Paris is a gorgeous, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy – perfect for fans of Jane Costello, Miranda Dickinson and Lucy Diamond.


I've read several Christmas books this year - ok - quite a lot! Some were good. some were very good and one or two were absolutely amazing.....and this is one of them!

Set in Paris (as you may have guessed from the title!) and featuring Ava and her friend Debs. Debs is on a mission to cheer Ava up following her break up from her cheating ex Leo. Ava is determined not to find romance in the most romantic city in the world at Christmas. Then she meets Julien. And he is one sexy beast!

Of course the path of true love never runs smooth, even in Paris and there are several bumps in the road that they have to get over.

Funny, Christmassy, very romantic and one of my favourite Christmas books ever! Thank you Mandy!

Thanks to Bookouture & NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
