Kissing My Old Life au Revoir by Eliza Watson was a fun read for me and I really enjoyed it. It’s great for summer reading when you’re looking for a book that will just take you away from your own life for a bit and even better when it takes you to Paris! Of course I was attracted to the book because of the setting but once I started reading I was completely drawn in by the story and the people inhabiting its pages.
Samantha is an event planner and most definitely a career woman which is exactly why she turns down a proposal from her boyfriend. She wants to get ahead in her company, not stay at home and have babies. Which is why she is so infuriated when she finds out that her ‘so called boyfriend’ actually didn’t recommend her for the promotion she has been coveting. However she can’t worry about that right now because she has a huge meeting to plan for her beer distributor clients.
That is why we find Samantha in Paris and while there she really wants to spend a bit of time with her younger sister Libby. Libby is a free spirit who has been living in Paris for a while now but nothing could prepare Samantha for the surprise that Libby has for her. Then to top it off Libby up and disappears which leaves Samantha taking to the streets of Paris with the gorgeous Luc to find her.
Meanwhile Samantha’s life is falling apart around her as she is indeed turned down for her promotion. However she’s not going to take it sitting down and neither are her friends. What starts out as a simple thing on Facebook soon blossoms into something that her company can’t ignore. Yet Samantha has to wonder if it’s all really worth it … because sometimes the simplest things can make us the most happy. Kissing My Old Life au Revoir is about love, romance, family, and finding what truly makes you happy in life!

I’ve been wanting to read this book from the first time I simply saw the title. After I got more information about it, I have been even more intrigued. I lived in Paris for a number of years so reading novels about my other home is a special treat for me.
Thanks for sharing the great review.
