My Paris Dream – Book Review and Giveaway

My countdown to Paris feels as though it’s moving at a snail’s pace.  I seriously needed my spirits to soar.  Fortunately, my father-in-law surprised me with a copy of  – My Paris Dream: An Education in Style, Slang, and Seduction in the Great City on the Seine.

I made myself a lovely cup of tea and landed on the couch with my favorite blanket.  My husband likes to keep the house at minus arctic degrees, so a blanket is always needed in our house.


This book was just the ticket I needed.  If I can’t be in Paris in 2016, then I will jet off to Paris circa 1980’s  –  via Kate Betts.


If you have a love affair with Paris or fashion – this is a must read.  You will experience the highs and lows of Kate’s turbulent dream of self-discovery, in the city she loves dearly.  You will feel the passion in her pursuit to make it into the fashion industry.

We all have our dreams – even if Paris isn’t your dream, you will find this memoir an entertaining read.  My Paris Dream is a journey on following your heart.

I have one hardcover copy of My Paris Dream from Ms. Betts for this giveaway.  One $25.00 Amazon Gift Card will also be included for the lucky winner from moi.

UPDATE – The winner is Carol P.  Congratulations!  I have sent you an email.  Thanks to everyone!

Good Luck – Bonne chance!

    I don’t have a love affair with Paris, but I like your blog a lot! I am always amazed at bloggers that do giveaways and I think that is so cool! I’ve never done a giveaway before because I’m afraid one of these online crazies, like Gary, will find me because they didn’t like the gift! 😄😉

      1. No problem! I think you will like All the light we cannot see. It was slow for me, but the writing was phenomenal. The imagery he creates is if you are there in the book! in Paris!
