5 Words: Antiques, love, betrayal, family, Paris.

This story was pretty perfect for summer. It was fun and light (but not too light) and the writing really brought Paris to life. I could smell the food, taste the wine, hear the chattering tourists. It's exactly the kind of book to get lost in.

You don't have to have read the first book in The Little Paris collection to read this, they do pretty much stand on their own. The links between the characters are minuscule, almost only the setting of Pari

Being a firm francophile, there's nothing I like better than to be transported to France. With some truly great characters, jewellery thieves and French food, Rebecca Raisin has created a fabulous story. I was fortunate enough to read the first book in the series and this one is just as good. Loved Anouk's mother and crazy sister and nice to see the bookshop mentioned as well.A feel-good romance with a happy ending but not without a lot of heartbreak in order to get there. The perfect escape if ...more

What a wonderful story, its French, it has a kooky shop owner, it's got some bad guys, a fabulous mystery at the heart of the story, and some eccentrics too. What more could you want from a new romantic comedy..ah yes it has romance, a sexy man, some brilliantly light hearted sections and generally is a whole lot of fun too.

As a huge fan of this author's work I jumped at the chance to read this book. Once again she has blown me away with this story.

As a fan, I already knew that the author could write a romantic story, but this one is so much more than that. This story has a mystery running throughout, which dictates how the characters act.

Anouk is a wonderful character. She has a passion for antiques and has turned that into a career. She believes the most important thing is the story behind each item she buys, as

Thanks to TBC and Rebecca for letting me review a copy of this excellent book! I have only recently found this author and already read two of her stories. She writes beautifully and her stories are lovely to read. The is the second book in her series but I read this as a standalone as I did with her other story (Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm) and still enjoyed them. Yet again I felt right at home in this story and welcomed by the characters. You can really spot Rebecca's love of writing within her ...more

The Little Antique Shop under the Eiffel Tower, is the second book in The Little Paris Collection. Although it can be read as a standalone, i think its better to read in order.
Meet Anouk, who is the owner of an Antique shop in Paris. Anouk works with a policy that new buyers are only allowed to buy from her if they are introduced from someone she already knows and can trust. She also likes the item to stay in France. She is very passionate about all of her items and seems to go above and beyond

Where to start…

It’s kind of hard to write this review, because I adore Rebecca Raisin’s books and I really wanted to love this book, but I didn’t. Let me start at the beginning…

The story follows Anouk LaRue who owns an antique shop and wants to protect French heritage. I struggled with her. She is a very intense and complicated character and I just didn’t find a connection to her, which made it hard to follow her story

I absolutely loved this book. It has a wonderful set of quirky characters. Anouk has been hurt by an old boyfriend who rears his head throughout the book. She runs a lovely antique shop where you have to be introduced by a present customer before you grace the doors. She wants to know that the precious antiques are going to find the best home where their story is appreciated and will create their own stories with the new owners. She visits sales with particular customers in mind and often bids o ...more

I received a copy of this via NetGalley in return for a fair and honest review.

This book was such a delightful read! Full of beautiful antiques and settings, and quirky characters, time reading it flew by!

The owner of the Antiques shop is Anouk, and her whole life is antiques! She lives and breathes them, especially the history and the stories behind each piece. But she's been hurt by an ex who used her and ripped her off, so she's finding it hard to trust anyone. She is now very particular abou

I loved Rebecca Raisin's other books and I was so excited to read this one. I liked the main character, Anouk, but I just didn't love this one as much as the others. I loved Anouk's love of antiques and her desire to make sure every antique got a good home. The problem was the relationship development. I thought Tristan and Anouk had great chemistry, but there weren't nearly enough scenes between them to show their feelings towards each other or the progression of those feelings. There was way t ...more

Oh, how I loved this book! The Little Antique Shop Under the Eiffel Tower is the second book in Rebecca Raisin’s new series, though a perfect standalone, and I absolutely loved every single line on every single page. I probably say this every time I read Rebecca’s latest book but The Little Antique Shop was my favourite book of hers so far. I couldn’t get enough of it.

We met Anouk briefly in the previous book, The Little Bookshop on the Seine. I was completely fascinated by her character then,

Having read and loved The Little Bookshop on the Seine I was thrilled to be involved in this, the blog tour for the second book in The Little Paris Collection. Although these books, and the third book coming soon, are part of a collection they can be read as stand-alone novels.

In this book we move location slightly, closer to the Eiffel Tower and learn more about the idiosyncrasies of Anouk who appeared very briefly in the first book of the collection. She runs her antique shop in a way that is

I was offered the chance to be able to read & review this novel and how could I resist?!
Firstly, it is such a beautifully designed cover. A real eye catcher. A cover that shouts "Stop! Read me!". And I'm pleased I did. In this I was not disappointed, and I'm so pleased to say that in this, the story lives up to already high expectations. I am ashamed to say that this is the first Rebecca Raisin book I've read. How?? How have I missed this author for so long?? Now, this is a second book in a seri

TLASUTET is Paris from a local's point of view which believe me is so very refreshing and keeps the Paris magic alive and gives every Francophile a reason to visit Paris soon. The usual touristy fascination takes a back seat and via Anouk, Paris has a charm and an unmissable joie de vivre which the tourists don't get to experience in short time they spend in the city of love and lights. The antics of people around Anouk made me laugh hard, her personality made me contemplate and her handsome Ame ...more
This book, a follow-up to The Little Bookstore on the Seine where the main character is an American, does not work as well with a native French woman heroine (Anouk, the antiques dealer from the first book). Besides the obvious language inconsistencies, where you feel like there should be much more French, the jewel heist caper element felt clumsy and inorganic. Also, I figured out the "surprise" elements very early on. I won't give away spoilers here, but it was way too obvious for me. The char ...more

5 thoughts about this fun read with an enjoyable romance and an interesting mystery:
> Anouk had a great character arc after experiencing a big setback - and she had to deal with some family drama on top of everything else!
> This was a good ol’ enemies-to-lovers romance (on Anouk's part anyway) with a dash of suspicion on both parts
> There was the perfect amount of mystery without it completely taking over the plot or pushing aside the character development
> There could have been more scenes bet

"Visiting Paris was like falling in love. It swept you up, and transported you to another time; history was everywhere – and I could never tire of it....It’s a cliché but life is so short. That’s why we French sleep in, have a leisurely breakfast, a longer lunch, wine with most meals – day-to-day life shouldn’t be hurried or endured, it should be relished, each and every minute, in case tomorrow never comes.” So said Anouk, the owner of the little antique shop by the Eiffel Tower.

I enjoyed some parts of this book, I liked reading about Anouk, and her antique shop and why she was so protective of her shop, this explains a lot from the other books that I have read. I really liked Tristan I knew from the beginning he was a good guy. The reason I gave it four stars is because it was so slow, it took way too long to get to the point and there was way too many misunderstandings the whole way through the book. Yes of course I love a happy ending and there was one in this story ...more

A light hearted easy to read tale. Fantastic for a sunny day and a quiet garden to get wrapped up in this sometime funny story line about a, jewellery shop in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. A relaxing read that can be picked up and put down and easily resumed again without

Too much bother. Would recommend to anyone who likes to read light hearted romance with a bit of a story line

I am on a mission to read all of this author's books. This is the 2nd in a trilogy that happens in France. This is already a win/win for me. This book follows a character we meet in book 1. This is a great story and a way to continue the enjoyment of book 1. I just would have loved to see more of the HEA of book 1 somehow. Oh well! Great book for a cold winter day as Spring hovers on the horizon.

Enjoyed this book!

I have already read the book store in the Seine book so this is my second book by Rebecca Raisin. I have enjoyed both books very much. I am following her and do believe I have one or two more of hers to read still. When I find an author whom I like I do follow them.
I love reading books about locations where I have been see if they give that same feeling that I had when I was there. Her books do that.

As aFrancophile,I loved this book. I listened to the audible version and the narration was good with dialogue using good French accents. It was part love story of Paris and its different arrondissements, part mystery, an inside look into the French psyche, an appreciation of the difference of American and French culture, customs, and food, the slower pace and joie de vivre hurried Americans lack, and lastly a love story between a young couple and the main character’s parents. Très amusant!

After reading the first book in this series I was charmed by this author, especially having recently visited Paris and fallen in love with the city. Very enjoyable romance in the city of light, with a little crime mystery thrown in for good measure.

Fun little book

This was a good book. I enjoyed the development of the characters and who doesn't like a good little mystery? I had just returned from Paris so it was fun to read about some of the places I had been and be able to picture the little shop.

Romantic French mystery!

Such a riveting, yet easy going, mystery all neatly wrapped in Anouk’s story! I loved the French-ness of it. It was so descriptive and I could almost taste the pastries and smell the bouillabaisse! Highly recommend!

Stolen Jewels, Glances and Hearts

This was a sweet mystery set in the world of antiques with a Parisian backdrop. Loved the characters and the interaction between them. The mystery was a little bit of a twist at the end. In all, it's an enjoyable read for a cozy mystery.

Little Antique Shop Under the Eiffel Tower made me feel like I was in Paris. I could almost feel and smell the air. This book kept me intrigued, the characters were interesting. A good, light easy read.
