The first instalment in this hilarious, romantic and unputdownable five-part series. Perfect for fans of Lindsey Kelk’s I Heart… novels.
Firstly, thanks to Headline Publishing, for providing me with a review copy of Poppy Does Paris on Net Galley.
This book was an easy choice for me, as I love books set in Paris and all things Parisian, and I found the cover eye-catching. I also love Lindsey Kelk’s I Heart… series, so that instantly caught my attention.
This novella was a delight to read, and Poppy was an instantly lovable character.
Poppy works in publishing, and she’s in the middle of a bit of a ‘dry spell’ with men – a nearly-a-year-long dry spell. When she manages to score a work trip to Paris for a couple of days with her good-looking (if somewhat annoying) colleague, Poppy thinks that a bit of a no-strings-attached fun could be exactly what she needs, and decides the city of love is the perfect place to seduce him for a naughty weekend fling.
Naturally things don’t quite go to plan, and Poppy finds her adventurous weekend taking a few unexpected turns, especially when you throw in the sexy, charming author who she’s in Paris to interview!
I really enjoyed this novella; Doherty’s writing is charming, and really makes you feel like you’re a part of the story. Being a huge lover of Paris, I could picture myself strolling alongside Poppy, sharing her wonder at the beauty of it all. Poppy herself is incredibly sweet and very endearing in a ditzy sort of way. She made me laugh right from the start when setting up her internet dating profile. Her train of thought is always hilarious, making you laugh every time she nearly puts her foot in it, and every time she very much does!
Poppy Does Paris is everything you could ask for from a chick lit novella; sweet, funny and easy to read, it definitely left me smiling.
The next instalment of the Girls On Tour series, Lisa Does LA, is out on the 25th of September, and I will definitely be reading the whole series.
