Current book:

One Paris Summer

Denise Crover Swank

One Paris Summer  A Sneak Peek

Goodreads Summary:

Most teens dream of visiting the City of Lights, but it feels more like a nightmare for Sophie Brooks. She and her brother are sent to Paris to spend the summer with their father, who left home a year ago without any explanation. As if his sudden abandonment weren't betrayal enough, he's about to remarry, and they’re expected to play nice with his soon-to-be wife and stepdaughter. The stepdaughter, Camille, agrees to show them around the city, but she makes it clear that she will do everything in her power to make Sophie miserable.

Sophie could deal with all the pain and humiliation if only she could practice piano. Her dream is to become a pianist, and she was supposed to spend the summer preparing for a scholarship competition. Even though her father moved to Paris to pursue his own dream, he clearly doesn't support hers. His promise to provide her with a piano goes unfulfilled.

Still, no one is immune to Paris’s charm. After a few encounters with a gorgeous French boy, Sophie finds herself warming to the city, particularly when she discovers that he can help her practice piano. There’s just one hitch—he’s a friend of Camille’s, and Camille hates Sophie. While the summer Sophie dreaded promises to become best summer of her life, one person could ruin it all.

Sneak Peek:

"Mathieu glanced around and took a few steps to the right. Was that supposed to be some kind of hint? I considered going the opposite direction, but why go out of the way just to prove a point?" location 1800 (ereader)

Initial Thoughts

An adorably cute main character, Sophie took me with her on her summer adventure completely. I wasn't sure on this one when I picked it up, yet after only a few pages I was hooked. I had to know what would happen in Paris!

One Paris SummerOne Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swank
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this one. The story was light and fun. A perfect summer read, nice and quick.

This was a fun read. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a light romantic teen piece. Of course, there is no reason why adults can't enjoy this flashback of puppy love during a summer vacation. It is probably a little predictable, but there is no doubt you will get swept up in Sophie's life. Her summer in Paris is full of stress and disappointment, yet, she finds a way to make her wishes come true.

Denise Grover Swank has done a marvelous job of writing a clean summer story that is appropriate for younger teens as well, which in this day and age, that is not common.
