Time for this week's Reading~

Seems I'm playing catchup with blogging and happily so...

What I've been currently reading and just completed ? from Julie Klassen ~
The Tutor's Daughter
405 pages of pure pleasure reading, this suspenseful Regency set on the cliffs of Cornwall with an unexpected sweet romance for the spinster blue-stocking daughter of the Smallwood Boys' School tutor...

What I'm reading next ?
A few choices at hand...
One novel topping my stack for
Paris in July 
is Luanne Rice's 
Secrets of Paris
found in a local charity book 
sale and a perfect addition for
this month's theme..

Along with Sandra Byrd's delectable
French Twist series ~ 
Let Them Eat Cake #1
Lexi Stuart is at a critical crossroads. She’s done with college but still living at home, ready to launch a career but unable to find a job, and solidly stalled between boyfriends.
When a lighthearted conversation in French with the manager of her favourite bakery turns into a job offer, Lexi accepts. But the actual glamour is minimal: the pay is less than generous, her co-workers are skeptical, her bank account remains vertically-challenged, and her parents are perpetually disappointed. Her only comfort comes from the flirtatious baker she has her eye on–but even he may not be who he seems to be!
So when a handsome young executive dashes into the bakery to pick up his high profile company’s special order for an important meeting–an order Lexi has flubbed– she loses her compulsion to please. “What am I going to do?” he shouts. “Let them eat cake!” she fires back with equal passion and a nod to Marie Antoinette. And then, something inside Lexi clicks. Laissez la révolution commencer! Let the revolution begin!
time to stop trying to fulfill everyone else’s expectations for her life...

Bon Appetit   #2
{picked up currently free as ebook}

As she settles into her new home in the village of Presque le Chateau to study and work in a local bakery, her twenty-something optimism meets resistance in the seemingly crusty nature of the people and culture around her. Determined to gain her footing, she finds a church, meets a new friend, and makes the acquaintance of a child named Celine–as well as Celine’s attractive, widowed father, Philippe. Even Patricia, the gruff pastry cook, shows a softer side as she mentors Lexi in the art of baking.

You could try 'The Paris Wife' by Paula McClain. It wasn't a favorite of mine, but the Paris setting was well done.
Here's my WWW: http://samannelizabeth.wordpress.com/2014/07/16/www-wednesday-16-july-2014/

I've read a Luanne Rice story before, so that one definitely looks very intriguing!
I have so many books lined up on my Kindle app and I have not even started one yet! I gotta get cracking.
