When Hannah and her boyfriend, Simon, board their train with only a few seconds to spare, they’re confident that they’ll make it to Amsterdam in time for his sister’s wedding. But unbeknownst to them, the train is scheduled to divide in the middle of the night. And when it does, half of it continues on the route to Amsterdam. And the other half–the one with Hannah in it–heads 300 miles away, to Paris.

Left without her luggage, ticket, cell phone, or hope of reuniting with Simon, Hannah has no choice but to spend the day in Paris before the next train out. Worse than being stuck in a foreign city alone, though, is being stuck with Leo, the handsome but infuriating Frenchman who blames Hannah for his own unwanted detour. The series of mishaps that sends them traipsing through the City of Light seems like only further proof that Hannah’s day has gone from bad to worse. So why is it that the more Hannah takes in the glorious sights and sounds of Paris–and the more time she spends with the increasingly intriguing Leo–the more she finds herself beginning to question the safe, tidy life she’s built for herself back home in London?

book review

The Paris Connection really took me by surprise! I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did.

The beginning was a bit slow and it took me a while to properly get into this book. In the beginning, the main character, Hannah, is annoying and dependent on her boyfriend, Simon. I couldn’t really connect with her but the book soon picked up!

When Simon and Hannah finally split on a train, with him going to Amsterdam and her to Paris, I grew fond of her! That’s when Hannah finally started discovering her old new self and I saw a bit of myself in her. Her story of rediscovering herself after she finished 30 and discovering what she wants in life was amazing and inspiring.

I loved following Hannah’s adventures with Leo in Paris, their connection was amazing. I loved the ending (no spoilers here but it was perfect for Hannah’s story). I definetly recommend that one! ❤️
