Reviews

Tender, funny, sad, and brutally honest, I devoured this book like I would have eaten Parisian patisserie. I loved every page (as did my husband!) -- JoJo Moyes
I totally loved this gorgeous, funny, honest, adorable book: formidable. -- Jenny Colgan
Searingly funny, searingly honest, searingly good cake. -- Sarah Franklin, Costa Prize judge and director of Short Stories Aloud
I loved We'll Always Have Paris. Love, grief & cake. Often sad and hellishly funny. -- Lissa Evans, author of A Crooked Heart
Charged with love, longing and lots of cake, Emma Beddington's warm and witty memoir of her romance with the City of Light is a treat for anyone whose Parisian dreams encompass cafe creme at Les Deux Magots, macaroons at Laduree ... and instinctively recognising the gender of a lave-vaisselle. -- Kathryn Flett
We'll Always have Paris is a joy. So much resonated as I read it in a cafe wearing my Breton t-shirt. -- Cathy Rentzenbrink
Extremely funny, emotionally acute and often very moving. Writing about yourself and your life without giving in to navel gazing or self- interest is a rare trick and one Emma Beddington pulls off with aplomb; instead she turns her sideways gaze on the world and its absurdities with a wink and a wry smile. We'll Always Have Paris has all this, but in addition a big dose of genuine warmth and wisdom. -- Jess Ruston
'I loved Emma Beddington's funny, poignant memoir, which made me laugh - and cry. -- Nina Stibbe
A sumptuous ode to Gallic philosophy, patisserie and joie de vivre, and also a poignant account of relationships, loss and identity. -- Zahra Saeed * Independent *
Emma writes frankly and with self-deprecating humour about depression, motherhood, her Paris dreams and their soul-crushing reality, and cake. There's so much cake in this delightful, thoughtful book. -- Sarra Manning * Red *
