Afternoon my lovelies.  Today I have a review for you on the blog tour of That Night in Paris by Sandy Barker – another fabulous book from this amazing author!

the blurb

Note to self: don’t sleep with your flatmate after a curry and three bottles of wine… especially if he’s secretly in love with you and wants you to meet his mum.

Cat Parsons is on the run. She doesn’t do relationships. After ten years of singlehood even the hint of the ‘L’ word is enough to get Cat packing her bags and booking herself onto a two-week holiday.

A European bus tour feels like a stroke of genius to dodge awkward conversations at home. But little does Cat realise that the first stop will be Paris, the city of love itself. 

Joined by new friends, Cat has got two weeks, eight countries and a hell of a lot of wine ahead of her. As they discover hidden treasures and the camaraderie of life on the road, will Cat find a new way of looking at love? 

Discover the beauty of Europe’s most romantic cities in this uplifting and laugh-out-loud novel for fans of Samantha Parks, Alex Brown and Mandy Baggot

my review

Another fantastic feel-good, laugh out loud, warm your cockles novel by Sandy!

After making a terrible mistake and sleeping with her flatmate, who then confessed his undying love for her, Cat is now on run! Booking herself on to a European bus tour holiday to get away, she certainly doesn’t expect what’s coming to her!!

Making some fabulous new friends, her ‘bus besties’, she sets of on an amazing, wine and food fuelled break away with some awwww, OMG and laugh out loud moments!!  Sleeping in some far from glamorous places, seeing some beautiful sights and reliving memories, Cat gets more than she bargained for when they visit Paris.  Nicknames the ‘love bus’ Cat is set on not being sucked in – but will she be able to avoid the ‘l word’?! YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!

I absolutely loved this.  Perfect to read in my garden in the sun, I literally felt like I was on holiday with Cat!  Her friends were my friends, I was seeing the sights with her and having the best time – I was just sad I didn’t get to drink the copious amounts of wine she consumes!

Cat is a fantastic character – determined not to ever fall in love again, she just wants some fun.  But realises that maybe her feelings run deeper than she first thought.  Her bus besties are amazing – I just wanted to cuddle Lou! She’s such a warm and amazing woman, and Dani and Jae had me in stitches with their escapades.  And Craig – the wonderful little bro! And then there is one character who will remain nameless, until you’ve read the book, who I feel head over heels in love with! It was also great to check in with Cat’s sister Sarah (who you meet and fall in love with in Sandy’s other books!).

I’ve said in my previous reviews and I’ll say it again.  I love Sandy’s writing style.  If I decided to write a book, it would be like this! It flows so easily and at times you feel like the character is talking directly to you.  It sucks you in and you genuinely hop on board the journey – all the sights, sounds, smells and adventures come to life.

I absolutely loved this.  I’m not giving anymore details because I don’t want to ruin it for you! But just know that I smiled all the way through, wanted to kick characters up the bum, join in on their adventures and find out what happened next!!  This is the perfect book for buying yourself at the moment – sit in the garden in the sunshine, with this and you’ll have a wonderful day! Highly recommended by me!
