Paris, My Sweet
By: Amy Thomas
Part love letter to New York, part love letter to Paris, and total devotion to all things sweet. Hello, My Sweets is a personal and moveable feast that's a treasure map for anyone who loves fresh cupcakes and fine chocolate, New York and Paris, and life in general. --bn.com
Amy Thomas loves chocolate and sweets. So much so that she centered a vacation to Paris around them. (Now that is my kind of vacation!) She is a literal directory of all the best places to go to in New York and Paris for various desserts and chocolates. When she's transferred to Paris for work, she gets to spend even more time exploring the different places to fuel her love of chocolate and sweets.
Paris, My Sweet documents her life once she makes the move to Paris. From the difficulties with the language and making friends to finding excellent places to eat her sorrows away. She takes you along for her ride- all the good and bad of it. And she doesn't just stop with Paris. She tells you where to go when it comes to New York, as well. For both Paris and New York she gives you the history for several of the more successful shops and their owners.
By the time I finished this book I was craving chocolate cake and wanting to travel to New York to check out the places she mentions. I loved reading how some of the shops came to be in both locations.
