Judi Lee | 5 comments Small paperback book. Blue cover, I believe. It is NOT The Last Time I Saw Paris by Elizabeth Adler - I've read that, and have it in my possession. I hope this is enough information. Please let me know if there is anything more I can tell you to help me solve this mystery. Thank you. J

Judi Lee | 5 comments Definitely not MMM, but thanks, Rachel.

Juels, I more than likely read it 5 or 7 years ago, possibly longer. The woman follows a wonderful and adventure filled route throughout France. She gets lost a lot. There may even be a romantic interest in the mix, but I could be confusing it with EatPrayLove. I would like to find this book because I hope to go to France and follow her route. Isn't this what dreams are made of?

Thanks for your input. Judi

Faking It by Leah Marie Brown turned up while searching, but it was published in 2015.

Judy, was the heroine traveling alone through France? Did someone from her hometown accompany her?

Did she travel by bicycle, train, car or hitchhike?

Did the book feature certain regions of France - Paris, Provence, the Riviera, etc.?

When I got dumped by my stupid fiancé a week before the wedding, my plans involved nothing more than ice cream, a blanket fort, and a bonfire of his possessions.

But my friends convinced me that bitter tastes better drowned in Bordeaux, so I came to Paris for a single-moon.

Judi Lee | 5 comments Dear Kris and Sarah. Neither of your suggestions were the book. I'm beginning to believe this entire memory is only a figment of my imagination. Thanks for sharing. Judi
