She goes on for the first few chapters discussing her party girl lifestyle and enjoyment of the "occasional" alcoholic beverage. Each chapter ends with a drink recipe. Of course motherhood changed her partying ways as well as the tenor of her writings. I enjoyed her cute stories about family more than those beginning stories, but that could just be me. She talks about the language issues, like the time she tried it endearingly call her husband a little flea and ended up calling him a virgin.
This short memoir about life in the city of lights made me smile and shared some interesting recipes. She even tells us how to make a face mask with honey and cinnamon to clear up acne. Is it an epic novel!...no. Will it win a Pulitzer?...unlikely.
Will it give you a small window into life in Paris?...absolutely. Vicki is laughing through her adventures and has decided to take her readers along for the ride. Sit back, relax...and maybe try one of her recipes as you enjoy this light memoir about living and loving in Paris.
