RRR presents... A Love Letter To Paris by Rebecca Raisin - REVIEW!

Time to pack your bags and bid au revoir to loveless summer nights because author Rebecca Raisin has a NEW RELEASE that's just waiting to whisk you away to old Paree. 🇫🇷 

Ladies and gents, prepare to meet today's ebook of choice and blog tour guest via Rachel's Random Resources...

A Love Letter To Paris
Rebecca Raisin
Boldwood Books 

About the book...
Late at night when I wander the streets of Paris, my thoughts turn to her… How do I tell her how I feel? Perhaps, I need to show her…

The pretty little streets of Montmartre are abuzz with a rumour. Apparently a mystery matchmaker, known only as ‘Paris Cupid’, has somehow helped the city’s most famous bachelor find love.

But old-fashioned romantic Lilou is staying very quiet. She’d just wanted to set up her best friend, and to get on with her life selling whimsical old love letters, in Paris’s famous St. Ouen market.

She hadn’t imagined her little Paris Cupid project could ever have attracted so many people looking for true, heartfelt romance. Though the truth is that Lilou adores helping people find the right person. Even if her own love life is nothing short of disastrous.

But then a message arrives. And it’s just for her. Someone is in love with her. Someone who knows her secret. But they’re keeping their own identity secret too… Could it be from cheerful, talkative, flame-haired Felix? Or quiet, beautifully handsome Benoit? Or even Pascale – who drives Lilou mad every day?

After so long of helping others find their soulmate, is it time for Lilou to find love of her own in Paris herself?


I admit, I was caught up in the love story of it all.  The setting, the setup, the unexpected match, and the mysteriously kept identity of the possible "one" for our gal Lilou... all are the perfect ingredients for a summertime swoon. ✨️ 

She didn't deserve what happened to her in the past. Love gets us all at times, for better or worse, but to have those missteps put on display for all to see was a few steps beyond far. She'll shocked to say the least, Lilou didn't give up on the concept of love... just for herself, which was disheartening for sure. The thing about love though? It's true what they often finds us when we least expect it, and those moments when we've almost given up on it completely can be the most transformative. For her, it wasn't so much disbelief in it, but rather the force of focusing on the happiness of others that opened her heart to the unexpected, yet not unwanted attention. Watching it all unfold was half the magic, but when things come full circle, the true masterpiece can be seen. 

A great addition to this author's body of work, and a wondrous title to add to your summer reading lists.

Storybook Sunday... SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN by Laan Cham - REVIEW!

We're celebrating another day of bookish fun with Storybook Sunday! For those not up to speed on the post, I read a lot of great storybooks and thought, why not give them their own day in the sun. Hence, Storybook Sunday appears every now and then!

Today's featured title celebrates its BOOK BIRTHDAY this Tuesday via Random House Books for Young Readers and features a story about friendship, and walking that middle ground between opposing views, yet still finding a common place to call "home".  Ready or not, here comes today's book of choice...

Somewhere In Between
Laan Cham
Random House Books for Young Readers
Release Date:  07/16/24

Pink is a sweet little girl who has inadvertently traveled from far and away, landing in the Land of Sunshine.  There she meets Fireball, and discovers all the wonders and joys to be had in this shimmery bright, and light land.  As she explores, she catches sight of an area across the water she hasn't yet seen.  Fireball warns her away from the scariness to be found over there, but, as with most children, those things she was to be wary of simply made her more curious, so she sets out to see what's what for herself.  Imagine her surprise when she finds a wintry wonderland called the Land of Snow, and it's welcoming committee of one that goes by the name of Snowball.  Things don't seem as scary as she was told they would be, in fact, they're fun, just in a different way, but what starts as a fun day sharing experiences with newly made friends, turns into a virtual tug of war over that new friend that Pink wants nothing to do she comes up with a solution to meet them both halfway, showing  them how much fun can be had if we give things (and others!) a chance, and how beautiful our differences can really be. 

This is a fun tale from start to finish with brilliantly colored illustrations that really get things across.  We get to experience the fun of both lands, and then the middle ground discovered, while catching all parties in the act as they bicker, misunderstand, and eventually come to the realization of how much they were really missing out on.  Young readers can easily follow the pictures to get that first taste of conflict resolution that'll hopefully help them keep their cool in real life, while older readers will appreciate just how similar these two at odds really are with a chuckle and a smile.  A great addition to a classroom or family library for story time again and again.
