Kate can’t believe her luck when she nabs a job working for a world famous photo-journalist in Paris.

Synopsis

Lessons in French by Hilary Reyl

Fresh out of university and determined to dream big, Kate can hardly believe her luck when she lands a job as a 'little-bit-of-everything' to the world famous photo-journalist Lydia Schell. Better still, the job is in Paris, and her guide to the most romantic city on earth is the handsome Olivier. The Berlin Wall is about to come tumbling down, and the world feels full of possibility. But the oh-so-charming Lydia turns out to be the boss from hell. The 'little-bit-of-everything' includes collecting under-the-counter diet pills and walking a flatulent dog round the rainy streets of the sixth arrondissement. And the gorgeous Olivier? He happens to be dating Lydia's daughter...As the two worlds of her disastrous job and exciting flirtation look set to collide, Kate is about to get a fast education in the French approach to having it all.

Reviews

'Kate's lessons are hard-won and often risky - and yet we believe and fully root for her from page one. An affecting and intelligently drawn debut.'
Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife

Zarina de Ruiter

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
