Deena is a character with a personality which made me root for her from the start.

The Paris Notebook is full of plenty of fun. There are quite a few different plots going on, but each of them has been wrapped up by the end of the book.

Touched with creativity and humor, The Paris Notebook is a cute love story filled with friendships and romance.

Although The Paris Notebook is a romance novel, it's also a story about finding the confidence to pursue your dreams. All the characters have their own unique flaws and insecurities, which makes it easy to relate to them, and some also have a history preventing them from fully realizing their potential. As the book progresses, they struggle to build enough courage to move past these bar

Reader, writer, and former professional book critic for RT Book Reviews and Publishers Weekly. This is why I only give 3, 4 or 5 star reviews. I do not finish reading books that fall below that level. Life is too short to read bad books!
