Less than Picture Perfect

Lessons in French by Hilary Reyl


What budding artist wouldn't grab the chance to work in Paris with the world-famous photojournalist Lydia Schell? For Katherine, who just finished Yale, it will also be like going home, having lived in Paris as a young girl when her father was dying from cancer. Back then, she stayed with cousins and their son in a poor part of the city. Remembering that time, including her cousin Etienne's cruelty to her, still hurt, but they aren't going to get in the way of making new ones. This time Kate will be renting a room in the Schell's house, located in one of Paris' most classy neighborhoods. So what if Kate doesn't know how difficult Lydia is, or what she'll be doing for her? How hard could it be for a Yale graduate with unaccented and fluent French in the city of every artist's dreams? Furthermore, the Berlin Wall is about to come down, so this is the perfect time to work with a photojournalist.



My complete review of this book is available on my new blog here!



"Lessons in French" by Hilary Reyl is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo Books (for other eReader formats), iTunes, the Book Depository (free worldwide delivery), new or used from Alibris, Better World Books or from an IndieBound store near you. I would like to thank the publishers for sending me the uncorrected proof copy of this book for review via Curious Book Fans. This is a revised version of my review on that site, which was also published on Dooyoo (under my username TheChocolateLady) and {the now defunct} Yahoo! Contributor Network.
