The Paris Connection by Cerella Sechrist

About the Book
Sparks are flying in the city of light…
Emma Brooks, single mom and managing director at the leading recruiting firm in Paris, was against their merger with an American company from the start. Not only was her firm losing its autonomy, she was losing her well-deserved promotion to Cole Dorset – a handsome, arrogant interloper from New York!
How did Cole’s ex-girlfriend’s dream of moving to Paris become his nightmare? Now he’s got to find his way in a new country, and the woman showing him the ropes wants to string him up by one. But as he gets to know Emma and her daughter, he realizes Paris may have more to offer than he thought…
Releases March 1, 2014 from Harlequin Heartwarming
E-book available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble

My Thoughts
This was such a sweet book! I found myself swept away to Paris and thoroughly enjoyed my time there! All of the characters were absolutely fantastic especially Emma, Cole, and Emma's daughter Avery. And even the characters that you didn't love as much, still had redeeming qualities. I loved how the whole book had this lighthearted and romantic feel that was so refreshingly beautiful! Honestly I was just wrapped up in the book and it's hard to pull myself out enough to find the right words for it. I will say that it did remind me a lot of Sandra Byrd's French Twist series that I read last year, though it was different enough that I loved them both! I also hadn't heard of Cole and Emma's job before so it was interesting to learn about that!
So I will leave you by saying that it is a cute, clean, and fun read that I definitely recommend!
