Publisher's Summary

After backpacking her way around Europe, journalist Sarah Turnbull is ready to embark on one last adventure before heading home to Sydney. A chance meeting with a charming Frenchman in Bucharest changes her travel plans forever. Acting on impulse, she agrees to visit Fredric in Paris for a week. Put a very French Frenchman together with a strong-willed Australian girl and the result is some spectacular - and often hilarious - cultural clashes. Language is a minefield of misunderstanding and the simple act of buying a baguette is fraught with social danger.
But as she navigates the highs and lows of this strange new world, from the sophisticated cafes and haute couture fashion houses to the picture postcard French countryside, little by little Sarah falls under its spell: passionate, mysterious, infuriating, and charged with that French specialty - seduction. And it becomes her home.

One of the best.

What did you like best about this story?

A very engaging, light-hearted and enjoyable experience with which I found it very easy to relate.

Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favourite?

The only character of real interest is the author herself. The rest are only by way of background information.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Pomjour from gay Paree!

Any additional comments?

A supremely well read book, where it seems as though it's the author herself speaking, instead of someone just reading someone else's work. The author has all the charm one tends to associate with France, and at the same time captures all those irritating frustrations that living there as a foreigner inevitably entails. In its own genre, it's hard to beat. Good on yer, Sarah!
