Wine, romance, and French bureaucracy – the ups and downs of an American’s life in Paris. This laugh-out-loud memoir is almost too funny to be true!
Drinking too much bubbly. Meeting sappy Frenchmen who have girlfriends or are creeps or both. Encountering problème after problème with French bureaucracy. When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to taste wine, stuff her face with croissants, and maybe fall in love.
In her first book, this long-time blogger and semi-professional drinker recounts the ups and downs of her life in Paris. Full of sass, shamefully honest admissions, and situations that seem too absurd to be true, Vicki makes you feel as if you’re stumbling along the cobblestones with her.
Confessions of a Paris Party Girl read (to me) much like a very detailed and descriptive travel journey/life story. I will tell you that I admire Vicki’s courage and determination to move to Paris and create a life for herself, and “kudos” to her for succeeding!! I cannot, however, give this book a star rating simply because it’s not “my cup of tea” To give it a low star rating wouldn’t be fair because it is by no means a bad or poorly written book…..quite the contrary. To give it a high star rating would also feel unfair. For some, Confessions of a Paris Party Girl will be everything they want and look for in a book. Read it for yourself and discover all that Paris has to offer through Vicki’s eyes. Give it a try!!
