P.S. From Paris

Marc Levy, trans. from the French by Sam Taylor. Amazon Crossing, $27 (288p) ISBN 978-1-4778-2028-5

This 19th novel from bestselling author Levy (If Only It Were True) is an enchanting story of unexpected love and the fickle nature of fate. When her marriage turns sour, popular actress Mia finds an incognito waitressing job in Paris, where she can escape the prying eyes of her followers and her husband’s lies. What she doesn’t expect, though, is to fall in love in the hypnotic City of Lights. Meanwhile, American writer Paul moved to Paris to find some peace and quiet after the unexpected success of his debut novel. His abrupt departure from San Francisco was supposed to give him more freedom and inspiration to write another book; the last thing he wanted was for his concentration to be hampered by his friends’ attempt to set him up. But after Mia “accidentally” finds her way onto a dating website, and Paul’s best friends craftily trick him into going to meet her, the powers of Parisian love become irresistible. With sassy characters and a refreshing narrative, Levy delays the inevitable in clever ways, allowing for personality quirks and believable foibles to make the steady descent into romance a fun ride.
