Review quote

"I've just spent a year in Paris... Or at least I feel like I did, thanks to Laura Bradbury's latest Grape installment. I am a fan of the entire series (I've read them all at least twice) and this one is a new favorite. As much as I tried to read it slowly, I couldn't help myself. I devoured page after page, gobbling up Paris along the way. I smelled the food, heard the crispy crunch of the fresh croissants, felt the stifling summer heat, and got a bit seasick on the Seine. Laura's writing is so evocative of her 'moment in time' that I also suffered her youthful angst about her studies, her friends, her neighbors, her relationship and her future. This book was a joy to read and I will likely be re-reading it again in the near future but this time I will do it slowly, savoring every page. It will be a treat, to be sure."

About Laura Bradbury

Bestselling author Laura Bradbury published her first book-a heartfelt memoir about her leap away from a prestigious legal career in London to live in a tiny French village with her Burgundian husband in My Grape Escape-after being diagnosed with PSC, a rare autoimmune bile duct/liver disease. Since then Laura has published three more books in the Grape series about her enchanting adventures in France, with more Grape books in the works. Laura also plans to delve into the worlds of romance and women's fiction. Ooh la la! Now living and writing on the West Coast of Canada with a new liver and three Franco-Canuck daughters (collectively known as "the Bevy"), Laura runs four charming vacation rentals in Burgundy with her husband, has an enviable collection of beach glass, and does all she can to support PSC awareness and research.
