Title: One Night in Paris
Author: Juliette Sobanet
Pages: 65 pages
When Manhattan attorney Ella Carlyle gets a call that her beloved grandmother is dying, she rushes to Paris to be by her side, against the wishes of her overbearing boyfriend. Ella would do anything for her grandmother and jumps at the chance to fulfil her dying wish. But things take a mystical turn when Ella is transported to a swinging Paris jazz club full of alluring strangers…in the year 1927! As the clock runs out on her one night in the City of Lights, Ella will attempt to rewrite the past – and perhaps her own destiny as well.
I absolutely adore Juliette Sobanet’s books and have read nearly all of her published work because personally I think she is one of the better conteporary romance writers. It is such a pleasure to see her turn her hand to writing short stories.
One Night in Paris is the second book that I have read of Sobanet’s that takes a magical detour into the past. With One Night in Paris you have to allow the suspension of disbelief and just enjoy the wonderful world that Sobanet creates.
In One Night in Paris we see Sobanet briefly deal with the contentious issue of domestic violence but also with the strength that women can have when they stand up to their bully. However, she does not allow this dark and upsetting theme clog the magic that is Paris during the 1920s. Once again, Sobanet’s love for Paris drips off the pages as she makes Paris seem more and more romantic and special.
I implore you to read this book, in fact read Juliette Sobanet’s back catalogue. You will regrette rien!
