Confessions of a Paris Party Girl by Vicki Lesage

SYNOPSIS

Wine, romance, and French bureaucracy – the ups and downs of an American’s life in Paris. This laugh-out-loud memoir is almost too funny to be true!
 Drinking too much bubbly. Meeting sappy Frenchmen who have girlfriends or are creeps or both. Encountering problème after problème with French bureaucracy. When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to taste wine, stuff her face with croissants, and maybe fall in love.
 In her first book, this long-time blogger and semi-professional drinker recounts the ups and downs of her life in Paris. Full of sass, shamefully honest admissions, and situations that seem too absurd to be true, Vicki makes you feel as if you’re stumbling along the cobblestones with her.
 Will she find love? Will she learn to consume reasonable amounts of alcohol? Will the French administration ever cut her a break? [provided by the author]

My review:

5 stars

Received for an honest review

This book came to me at just the right time!  I need something fun and light!  I also needed to take an escape to the streets of France and emerge myself in French culture!  I loved that once I started this fantastic memoir I could not put it down.  The complexities of two cultures meshing are always fun and I think eye-opening experience.  I personally love France and French culture so much of the “conflicts” I took as a chuckle.  Vicky’s adventures in France were normal adventures that a young woman living in a different country could experience. This was such a delightful adventure.  It reminded me of SATC but in France!  Anyone that wants to sit and enjoy a glass of French culture wrapped up in this young woman’s adventures in France would love this book.  It reminded me how much I miss France and Europe!  Thank you for the fun read!
