Friendship, loss and a tantalizing trip to Paris in this highly praised #1 Amazon Best Seller! Amy and Kat had planned a secret trip to Paris. Even Amy’s husband wouldn’t know about it. But when Amy loses Kat to cancer, she knows the plan is gone forever. Or is it?
Guided by memories of her friend and dissatisfaction with her own calorie-counting life in Phoenix, Amy sneaks off to Paris while her husband is away on a business trip. Once there, she’s robbed, stalked, arrested and almost kidnapped. Worse, she finds that all her problems have come right along with her. Through her adventures, laced with luscious descriptions of food and Paris, Amy learns that often in life, love and friendship, nothing is exactly as it seems. Grab a croissant and settle in for a decidedly non-touristy trip to the City of Light.

My Review

It 's an exciting book with some touching moments but also lots of humor and irony, food and beautiful landscapes
Kat and Amy had a plan, make a trip to Paris, in secret without telling even to Amy's husband. Kat unfortunately has lost her battle with cancer. Now Amy has the opportunity to make this journey alone: ​​the husband goes away for work for 10 days. Will she have the courage to do?
Amy is unemployed and takes care of the home full-time, makes a lot of manual labor but according to her friend Kat had to be more daring, make better use of her artistic skills. She's always on a diet, but loves food, she hates her life but doesn't dare to change it. It was really interesting to see evolving her, try changing her monotonous and boring life.
Before you start reading this book I recommend you have a full stomach because so many foods are nominated, both savory and sweet, that is constantly hungry.
It was a quick and flowing read but enjoyable, an intriguing journey into the most romantic city in the world. 


k-s-r-burns-the-paris-effect Unlike her character Amy in THE PARIS EFFECT, K. S. R. Burns has never ventured down into the scary and forbidden catacombs. Nor has she run away from home, but she has lived and worked in 22 cities, one of them Paris (because she does definitely share Amy’s passion for Paris). Burns is also the author of THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF WORKING GIRL: REAL-LIFE CAREER ADVICE YOU CAN ACTUALLY USE (Running Press 2009), because while living in 22 cities she racked up a total of 59 jobs, thereby learning a lot about the world of work. She currently writes a weekly career advice column for The Seattle Times. No longer a wanderer, Burns currently resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and cat. Visit her website.
