What a beautiful book! ONE SUMMER IN PARIS by Sarah Morgan revolves around Grace, an American, and London-born Audrey. The story starts with separate introductions of these wonderful women, who come together over their shared summers in Paris. In an effort to get away from their current struggles of family life, Grace and Audrey both head to Paris.

Grace has been married for twenty-five years, and a summer in Paris was going to be her anniversary gift to her husband. However, after receiving some unsettling news, Grace ends up heading to Paris alone, a city which holds bittersweet memories of her youth. On the other hand, Audrey wants to escape from a miserable situation at home and since her mother is getting remarried it's the perfect time to find her feet and the much-needed independence she desires. She finds a job and will spend the summer working and living in a Left Bank bookshop. Audrey has her personal struggles but is street smart, too. She is determined to make the most of her time in Paris.

Once Grace and Audrey's paths cross and they become unlikely friends. They help each other through everything that they're struggling with while also finding the joys Paris has to offer. But when Grace's glamorous French grandmother Mimi, Grace's estranged husband David, their daughter Sophia all show up at various points during there trip, trouble follows Grace. This leads to confrontations, past secrets being revealed, and high emotions coming out in the open. What shines throughout all of the struggles of Grace and Audrey's journeys is their friendship and their kindred spirits. We see glimpses of the beauty of Parisian life via the men who romance Grace and Audrey. There's new and old loves spreading joy and happiness. The heart of it the story is about friendship, kindred spirits, and second chances. The book delivers on all counts for me: great characters, amazing setting, and some heartwarming and touching emotions which make me want to hope, fall in love, and maybe visit Paris in summer.

USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan returns with this heartwarming novel about the power of friendship, love and what happens when an ending is just the beginning…

To celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Grace has planned the surprise of a lifetime for her husband—a romantic getaway to Paris. But she never expected he’d have a surprise of his own: he wants a divorce. Reeling from the shock but refusing to be broken, a devastated Grace makes the bold decision to go to Paris alone.

Audrey, a young woman from London, has left behind a heartache of her own when she arrives in Paris. A job in a bookshop is her ticket to freedom, but with no money and no knowledge of the French language, suddenly a summer spent wandering the cobbled streets alone seems much more likely…until she meets Grace, and everything changes.

Grace can’t believe how daring Audrey is. Audrey can’t believe how cautious newly single Grace is. Living in neighboring apartments above the bookshop, this unlikely pair offer each other just what they’ve both been missing. They came to Paris to find themselves, but finding this unbreakable friendship might be the best thing that’s ever happened to them…
