"Forever a girl obsessed with all things French, sweet freak Amy Thomas landed a gig as rich as the purest dark chocolate: leave Manhattan for Paris to write ad copy for Louis Vuitton. Working on the Champs-Élysées, strolling the charming streets, and exploring the best patisseries and boulangeries, Amy marveled at the magnificence of the City of Light. But does falling in love with one city mean turning your back on another? ... Paris, My Sweet explores how the search for happiness can be as fleeting as a salted caramel soufflé's rise, as intensely satisfying as molten chocolate cake, and about how the life you're meant to live doesn't always taste like the one you envisioned."--P. Cover p. [4].

This is such a beautiful, delightful and delicious read! All the things I love, food, coffee, books and Paris! Oh Paris! And she also wrote maps and tips where to get the best baked stuff, cheeses and boulangeries. Would love to try these places...

Want to read the travel journal of a super fun friend who has moved to Paris for a year from NYC? ...then read this book! Amy Thomas has written a delightful book about living and working abroad as a 30-something singleton, and all the fun and angst that goes along with it. She loves chocolates and desserts - and samples abundantly while weighing the pros and cons of each city. Definitely an enjoyable read!
