A Perfect Paris Christmas by Mandy Baggot
This is the book that turned me into a total Mandy Baggot fan girl! I want to read all her back catalogue, I think she’s a really great romance writer. Her characters are so realistic, with full lives outside the romance. They have jobs that they care about and families they love and it makes them seem like such wonderful 3D people! A Perfect Paris Christmas is about Keeley, who goes to Paris just before Christmas to meet the mother of her kidney donor, and while she’s there, meets and starts to fall for Ethan, her donor’s best friend, who is struggling to adjust to life and business solo. It’s absolutely gorgeous, with perfect descriptions of Paris and the spectacular hotel chain Ethan runs. Family is a key theme in this novel – so if you like powerful emotional currents and characters working through their issues, give it a go!
