Cat Parsons is on the run. She doesn’t do relationships. After ten years of singlehood even the hint of the ‘L’ word is enough to get Cat packing her bags and booking herself onto a two-week holiday.
A European bus tour feels like a stroke of genius to dodge awkward conversations at home. But little does Cat realise that the first stop will be Paris, the city of love itself.
Joined by new friends, Cat has got two weeks, eight countries and a hell of a lot of wine ahead of her. As they discover hidden treasures and the camaraderie of life on the road, will Cat find a new way of looking at love?
I think it’s safe to say that we have all made some extremely memorable mistakes when in a drunken state and this one, Cat is ready to forget all about – especially when that man you made a mistake with is already head over heels in love with you. It is most certainly enough to have you on the run and what more perfect way than a European Bus Tour including; Paris, Florence and Rome?
A book always has me sold when France is involved – the scenery is just to die for and every author, including Sandy, does the whole city impeccable justice and once this lock-down is over with, I seriously need to consider booking a holiday there. Although Cat’s stop in Paris was fleeting, this is truly where her story begins, as she bumps in to an old, incredibly handsome friend, Jean Luc. Their romance was gorgeous and filled with so much passion, but what I loved most about this book is that Sandy didn’t focus on love so much in the romantic manner – the book truly highlights the love that comes with friendship and Cat most certainly made some life long friends on this journey and I think that is what is so important when reading this book. The four girls each had their issues and with the support of one another, their guidance helped them with heading in the right direction.
‘That Night in Paris’ is the second in a series, so what made it that little bit more exciting for me, was when Cat had her video calls with her sister, Sarah – who was the leading woman in Sandy’s first book in the series, ‘One Summer in Santorini’. It was a delight to see what Sarah was up to now and how she was dealing with the little love triangle she had found herself in when we had last heard from her. Those little moments in a series, where everything connects, always make it that bit more extra special.
Another wonderful addition to the ‘The Holiday Romance’ series and I can’t wait to reunite with Cat’s sister, Sarah, in the third book ‘A Sunset in Sydney’, where she will – fingers crossed – choose between the two men who had stolen her heart during that one trip to Santorini!
