Blog Tour: A Love Letter to Paris by Rebecca Raisin


Have you ever written a love letter?  One where you have to sit down and try to convey who you are, what you feel and what it is that you hope for?

Lilou loves reading love letters and old journals, so much so that she sells them at her market stall in the St Ouen market in Paris. Whilst Lilou tells herself that she isn't interested in love for herself, she still believes in love, and if she can help her friends find it then she will. And so Paris Cupid is born, but this isn't any ordinary dating website. Lilou carefully matches each couple who have agreed that they will only communicate via letter until they both agree that it is time to meet.  Lilou is determined to remain anonymous though. Who would trust someone with as many dating disasters as she has had to help them find love?

It isn't long before Paris Cupid is making news headlines when a famous actor announces that he has found love through the website. Suddenly everyone is speculating who could the mastermind behind the website could be. 

When Lilou starts receiving love notes, letters and gifts, she isn't really sure who could be sending them to her. It could be any one of the three men who have recently been allocated stall spaces next to her in the market. Scratch that. It could be two of the three men. It couldn't possibly be the third one.

Soon Lilou has her hands full trying to work out who her mysterious admirer might by, running her market stall and trying to keep her Paris Cupid business going, as well as keep her identity secret. 

I have read quite a few Rebecca Raisin books now. I love the way that she writes about food, books and the locations, especially Paris! And this book is no exception. The reader is very cleverly taken to a number of sites around Paris in the course of Lilou's activities. Some of the sites are well known, but others not quite so famous. I now need to visit Paris again to visit some of the places mentioned. I mean, I needed to go already, but even more so now. I am already looking forward to her next book

This most definitely is a love letter to Paris, but it is also a love letter to love letters, to the lost art of letter writing, and to falling in love slowly. 

I was contemplating when I last wrote a love letter. When I first started seeing my now husband, I wrote him a letter almost like a performance appraisal where I gave him a promotion from dating to being a boyfriend, and again to partner, and then again when we got married. I don't think I can promote him any higher than husband? Maybe I need to write him another one soon.

Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher and Rachel's Random Resources for the review copy. I am sharing this review with the New Release Challenge hosted at The Chocolate Lady's Book Review Blog and as part of Paris in July, hosted by Emma and Words And Peace.

About the book

A Love Letter to Paris

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?
