Lessons in French is a bit like a Devil Wears Prada story as we follow a young woman, Kate, in her first job as an assistant to a powerful and mercurial photographer in Paris. As a Yale grad, her vision of this job falls far from the reality. At times she is the artistic assistant and at other times she is the dog walker. Kate Is often placed in the middle of a family drama and must tiptoe around all of the eccentricity and turmoil. Her need to please is a trait that she discovers can be a hindrance in her situation. One of the more appealing relationships that Kate develops is with her cousin Etienne as she resolves her past relationship with him and his family. Hilary Reyl provides us with a well-defined cast of characters but it takes the entire story to discover all of their attributes and intricacies. It was enjoyable finding this out.
