Description

Heroic bookseller Laurent Letellier comes across an abandoned handbag on a Parisian street. There's nothing in the bag to indicate who it belongs to, although there's all sorts of other things in it. Laurent feels a strong impulse to find the owner and tries to puzzle together who she might be from the contents of the bag. Especially a red notebook with her jottings, which really makes him want to meet her. Without even a name to go on, and only a few of her possessions to help him, how is he to find one woman in a city of millions?

"Elegant, witty, lighthearted - and somehow very French." ( Booklist)

A romantic movie in my head...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to my girlfriends who like romantic love stories with a bit of mystery, humor, and tension.

Who was your favorite character and why?

As a female reader, I loved the character of Laurent. What woman wouldn't want a man to seek her out and fall in love with her only based on what he finds in her pocketbook? After reading this book I immediately went to my closet and put some interesting things in my purse, just in case...

Which scene was your favorite?

I love the scene where Laurent comes to Laure's apartment and calls the cat by name so that her friend assumes that he knows Laure. I also love how he lovingly investigates her apartment.The funniest scene in the book is when his daughter attempts to pass him off as her much older boyfriend. I was laughing out loud at this!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh at the one comical scene and I nearly cried when Laurent's daughter whispered to Laure her father's name and the address of his bookshop. That was so terribly sweet and beautifully written.

Any additional comments?

At first I didn't not like Alex Wyndham's narration - it seemed a bit stiff and a little angry sounding. But as the story progressed it grew on me and I especially enjoyed his portrayal of Laurent's daughter as well as his ex-girlfriend. I would definitely recommend this book to the romantic's out there and would love to see it made into a movie. This is the kind of story I will read more than once.

Charming book

Great story. My book club friends will love it for the fact that it involves a book seller and it's Paris setting.
My only wish is that there had been chapter designations.

Underwhelming

About half way through, I realized the story was taking a similar turn to “While You Were Sleeping,” But I’m glad to writer pulled up before crashing into that plot. Still, it was wearily predictable and wholly unsatisfying.

Charming

This was a short, sweet read. A charming story that all worked out well. The author did a good job at presenting a premise that might have come off as weird and stalkerish, but instead was all around lovely.
