SYNOPSIS

How her daughter and her passport taught Jennifer to live like there's no tomorrow.
Jennifer Coburn has always been terrified of dying young. So she decides to save up and drop everything to travel with her daughter, Katie, on a whirlwind European adventure before it's too late. Even though her husband can't join them, even though she's nervous about the journey, and even though she's perfectly healthy, Jennifer is determined to jam her daughter's mental photo album with memories—just in case.

From the cafés of Paris to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Jennifer and Katie take on Europe one city at a time, united by their desire to see the world and spend precious time together. In this heartwarming generational love story, Jennifer reveals how their adventures helped vanquish her fear of dying...for the sake of living. [provided by the author]

My Review
Four Stars
Copy received for an honest review from France Book Tours
When I saw "We'll Always Have Paris" by Jennifer Coburn I thought it would be a fun, light read about a mom and daughter traveling throughout Europe.  It was but it was also much more.  Jennifer Coburn really let's us into her life and her experiences.  Although her and her daughter were experiencing Europe together there was always a part of her that remained struggling with the death of her father.  She also let us enjoy the funny and quirky moments that she experienced with her daughter.  Although the book is titled "We'll Always Have Paris"  Coburn and Katie (her daughter) travel to other countries as well.  I personally really loved reading about France, Italy, Spain and then Amsterdam.  As part of their journey there is also a deep bond that is evident between this mom and daughter.  Often times I found myself grabbing a tissue when she spoke about the struggles she faced with her fathers death.  I really enjoyed this beautiful story about a beautiful family.
