Oh thank you Tilly Tennant for another wonderful book! This author is so talented! She is so imaginative, every of her books has a totally different story! This is so great! And this one in particular is taking place in the beautiful streets and Christmas markets of Paris. The atmosphere is very festive but the streets of Paris can be dangerous, you have to be careful! This adds a bit of tension to the book which I loved! Also I loved to read about the wonderful friendship between the two main female characters and of course about the bit of romance happening in this story! I gave this book 4 stars out of 5! If you pick this book, you will have fun reading it!

Tilly Tennant never fails to give readers a treat, especially at Christmas-time. Once again, a lovely feel-good story set in the festive period with a magical backdrop of Paris, 
Likeable characters & a fun storyline makes this book a wonderful read. Full of friendship & romance this is a perfect book to snuggle up with on the chilly winter days & nights over Christmas-time.

Brooke embarked on a business trip with her best friend Felicity after her boyfriend breakup with her to get married to another person. She didn’t plan for a new relationship but it seems that there is one waiting for her in Paris, in the form of mysterious Armand. 

It is a story of heartbreak and second chances. Brooke and Felicity is a charming character and their friendship is the main theme in this book. Their friendship were tested and I love to see how their friendship overcome it. There were plot twists and mystery surrounding them too. Overall, It is a warm cosy read to me.

A cute, slow burn holiday romance set in paris. It was good but a little slow for me. A good book to curl up with of an evening. I loved the Paris setting which is why I picked up the book in the first place! The author did a great job at providing us with vivid descriptions that made me feel like I was back in Paris.

Thanks to netgalley for the chance to read this book.

Brooke and her friend Felicity have gone into business together. They decide to head to Paris and take part in the Christmas market. None of them are looking for a relationship but will they change their mind when they find themselves crossing paths with Manin and Armand.

A great book of heartbreak and second chances.

I was really looking forward to a story about Christmas and two women spending the holiday season in lovely Paris sounded just up my alley. 
Unfortunately I could not get into this book at all. I gave it a try, and then again and again but at 22% in, I give up. 
It’s not that the characters or the setting are not enjoyable, it is just that nothing captivating has happened yet.. so far, the main characters have only visited some tourist places and I am not invested in their story. 
In the meantime I have picked up two other Christmas books and do not want to return to the world in this book.

I am very grateful for the opportunity however to read an advanced copy but there are just too many books out there to get stuck behind a book that is not right for me.

Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy the writing of the storyline in this one, might be a nice festive read for some but this book didn’t do it for me 
Thank you for the chance to read

Very very slow burn and overly bogged down with descriptions of everything. If you are a big fan of Paris, you will like the story and the descriptions of the city. The characters are ok but did not particularly stand out for me.

I love Christmas and I love Paris, so this was a perfect read for me!  This book perfectly captures the spirit of Christmas markets and you can almost smell it!  A warm story of friendship and finding love amidst the glittering backdrop of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

This was a typical slowburn romance about two friends traveling to Paris to sell their jewelry's at a christmas market. I really liked the athmosphere in this book. I could really imagine all the places that was described and they visited. If you have been to Paris, you know have beautiful it is. Unfortunately that was all that I liked about this book. The rest was quite boring and it was really a slowburn. Nothing special happened in this book. Nothing I will remember in a year that I have read.

This book sounded so good, and as a lover of all things Paris, I was very excited to read this one.  Unfortunately, for me, this book just wasn't what I was hoping.  I had a hard time connecting to anything and I couldn't get hooked or interested in the story.  I had to DNF this book.  I hope to maybe pick it up at another time to see if it's just a book for a different time.  But this is not the time, unfortunately.  Out of respect for the book and the author, I will not be leaving a review on social media.

This was a cute read. I enjoyed exploring Paris with Brooke and Felicity and seeing Paris through their eyes. Armand was a delightful addition to the cast and oozed charm and thoughtfulness. 

However, I got bored throughout the middle of the book. I was having trouble staying invested in the story as it just became slow. It did pick up in the end and I am glad that I finished it. This is a nice little Christmas comfort read and is perfect if you are looking for something light and fun. I will definitely be trying another Tilly Tenant book in the near future.  3.5 stars

As someone who’s been to Christmas markets in Paris I was excited to read this book! It was cute, but the plot didn’t get too thick. It was all very “when is something going to happen?” Brooke and Felicity have a strong friendship and reading through their journey in Paris was fun, however! What happened at the stall?? We had like two more weeks before Christmas?? And the book just ended. Did they meet their goal? Were they happy with profits? Will they be coming back? The ending was not ideal.

Christmas in Paris by Tilly Tennant 
Earc: NetGalley 
Publisher:Bookouture 
Publication Date: 21 Oct 2022  
Genre :General Fiction, Women's fiction, Romance

Brooke and her best friend Felicity own a shop that sells handicrafts. They were planning to go to Paris in December and sell goods at his market at Christmas. But when Brooke's boyfriend of three years abruptly broke up with her - married someone else within months - she was heartbroken. I think the story has a lot of potential, but the plot was everywhere. Sometimes it felt like the story went on and on, and other times it felt like there wasn't enough explanation. My Kindle showed that the book had an hour left, so it seemed to end abruptly, which was a bit confusing (it contained part of another book). I got a feel for it, but I wish there was more explanation for some of the characters. A few minor character suspicions will leave you guessing where the story is going!

Overall a sweet and heartwarming love story. The story is a little long, so I'm worried about it.

The characters lacked inspiration or interest, but were intriguing enough to follow their relationships.

All in all, there's a lot more to come, from moving and authentic scenes to hilarious and embarrassing situations filled with romance sparkle and holiday vibes.
