Reviews

"A starry-eyed tour of the City of Light's best p tisseries, juxtaposed with the American-style treats of her beloved New York." - Adventures in Food, France and Beyond "It's fun, it's tooth-achingly sweet, and I loved every minute! " - All Things Luxurious "[The] storyline kept me engaged and, of course, the chocolate descriptions kept me salivating." - Bookshipper "If you have a sweet tooth, if you want to live vicariously through the eyes of Amy Thomas as she spends time in both Paris and New York, then this may be a good choice for you." - Adventures of an Intrepid Reader "The book is an entertaining memoir about a girl and her love for Paris [as well as her struggle with loving New York too]." - Gourmet Galley "Though I don't recommend reading this tribute to deliciousness during a 21-day-juice cleanse you'd surely lose the will to go on it's the perfect book any other time you find yourself in need of geographic or baked escapism." - The Chalkboard Magazine "This little book is a treat for the senses and the mind. You will feel as if you are on a sweet ride with Amy." - Maurice on Books ""Paris, My Sweet" A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate) (Sourcebooks) balances her unexpected homesickness-often taking the form of a yen for Billy's cupcakes and Levain cookies-with delicious new findings, including sexy boutique chocolatiers (Pigalle's L'Etoile d'Or) and Paris' best madeleine purveyor (Bl Sucr )." - VOGUE.com "Thomas's story in "Paris, My Sweet" is inspiring in her quest to redefine her life for herself--and of course, will leave readers longing for a quick dash into a Parisian bakery." - Shelf Awareness for Readers

"I studied the Lost Generation, reading Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Janet Flanner, and built a mini library so I'd never be far from Paris." This short but sweet ode to all things French informs Thomas's decision to move from Manhattan to Paris to write for Louis Vuitton and sample the finer things in life, namely dark chocolate and rich desserts. Narrator Cassandra Campbell delivers a stellar reading that is both nuanced and subtle, and all but embodies Thomas. Smart yet simple, confident yet slightly naive, Campbell's tone is everything that Thomas was setting out on her new adventure. When Thomas longs for her old stomping grounds while attempting to reconcile her love of the French capital, Campbell manages to balance distant longing with absolute infatuation with only minor shifts in tone.
