Summary

How much money does it take to quit your job? Exhausted and on the verge of burnout, Janice poses this question to herself as she doodles on a notepad at her desk. Surprisingly, the answer isn't as daunting as she expected. With a little math and a lot of determination, Janice cuts back, saves up, and buys herself two years of freedom in Europe. A few days into her stop in Paris, Janice meets Christophe, the cute butcher down the street - who doesn't speak English. Through a combination of sign language and Franglais, they embark on a whirlwind Paris romance. She soon realizes that she can never return to the world of 12-hour workdays and greasy corporate lingo. But her dwindling savings force her to find a way to fund her dreams again. So Janice turns to her three loves - words, art, and Christophe - to figure out a way to make her happily-ever-after in Paris last forever.

Loved it!

The story was adorable, romantic, funny and well-written! The narrator was one of my favorites, really made me feel like the author was sitting across the table from me at a café, telling me her life story!

Interesting. No plot.

Interesting book, not much in the way. Good to have on in the background while you do other things.
