24 Hours in Paris

Romi Moondi. W x Wattpad, $16.99 trade paper (320p) ISBN 978-1-990259-17-3

Filled with delectable delights and heart-tugging insights, this stunning contemporary romance from Moondi (Never or Forever) is a feast for the senses. Thirty-four-year-old Indian American Mira Attwal travels to Paris on a business trip that offers no time to enjoy the city of her dreams. Then her return flight is delayed, giving her an unexpected bonus day in the City of Light. There’s only one catch: Jake Lewis, an extroverted white salesman from her company, is stuck with her—and he grates on her last nerve. But what’s Mira to do? It’s either drag the apparent womanizer along on a truncated tour through Paris as she nurses some personal regrets and reflection or cruelly abandon him in the hotel room from hell. As the pair cross items off of Mira’s Parisian bucket list, they come to see each other in new lights. The sharp comedic timing and mouthwatering culinary tour through the city would be enough to carry the novel, but the sheer depth of character development elevate it further as readers are invited along on a journey of discovery through the eyes of two people who, on the surface, have nothing in common. The result will have readers falling in love just as quickly as Mira and Jake do. (May)
