In this fresh and humorous tale, 29–year–old Claire agrees to supervise the renovation of the Paris apartment her parents have inherited. Ignoring her romantic surroundings, Claire is all–business and in a hurry to return to her job, home, and an “almost dating” relationship with Brian, an associate pastor.
When Adrien, a handsome and flirtatious friend of the family, agrees to help Claire, his spontaneity and joie de vie drives her crazy. But in time, even Claire cannot resist the City of Lights’ offerings, including the Rodin museum where the sculpture The Kiss raises the questions...who will be the love of her life? And will she ever learn to enjoy the life God has placed right in front of her.
This book took me forever to read. Not because it was bad, I just wasn't totally captured by the story-line and thus didn't feel drawn to reading it. It was still a cute read though and it was fun to watch Claire blossom during her time in France. Adrien was a bit too French for my taste but he was a great guy and I loved how he was determined to bring Claire out of her shell and to show her how beautiful she really was. There was all that much to the plot beyond Claire's journey of self-discovery but it was a sweet one-time read that I'm sure others will enjoy more than I did.
