I have just finished reading “I Heart Paris” by Lindsey Kelk, the third in her “I Heart” series.

“I Heart Paris (I Heart #3)” by Lindsey Kelk (via Goodreads)

The blurb reads:

“Angela is in the city of love — but romance is taking a nose-dive! When Angela Clark’s boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance. But even as she’s falling for the joie de vivre of Paris, someone’s conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a tete-a-tete with his ex in a local bar, Angela’s dreams of Parisian passion all start crashing down around her. With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can’t decide if should stay and face the music or run away home!”

Angela is back, causing trouble for herself as always, but this time in Paris!

Having recovered from her escapades in LA, Angela jumps at the chance to visit Paris with her boyfriend Alex for his gig at a festival AND gets the chance to write a travel piece for fashion magazine Belle. However, between someone trying to sabotage her job and Alex’s ex-girlfriend stirring up trouble for Angela, she manages to find herself utterly overwhelmed by everything.

Alex suffers a bit of a midlife crisis after turning 30, especially with Angela saying she’s not ready to move in with him, even though she decides she is ready. Between this argument and the constant re-appearance of his beautiful, cheating ex-girlfriend who is determined to get him back, Angela gets so confused by what everyone is telling her that she almost wrecks everything until she finally confronts the ex-girlfriend at the music festival in a rather funny incident!

Meanwhile, the job opportunity that seemed too good to be true starts to unravel, and it becomes clear that someone is behind all the trouble Angela is going through as she is desperately trying to put together an article about the hip scenes in Paris. She is assigned a French assistant who is friendly and helps her, but who seems to have another motive.

Never mind that she is in a beautiful city and there are some lovely sights that she gets to see: she ends up almost going home to England after her best friend Louisa comes to see her and, after talking about everything and deciding she’s had enough, Angela follows Louisa home to London where she does some thinking about what she wants and decides that running away wasn’t the answer and heads back to Paris to face the music and to fight for what she wants most.

What’s great about this book is that we explore a little bit more about Alex’s past and how it has affected him, as well as introducing the reader more to his bandmates who seem to be decent guys who try to help Angela sort out her issues with Alex.

I do like this book, and can’t believe how unlucky Angela is sometimes and how she manages to constantly mess up and need to be bailed out! It’s 8/10 to this book for the sheer entertainment that she provides by being such a trouble-magnet!
