After backpacking her way around Europe, journalist Sarah Turnbull is ready to embark on one last adventure before heading home to Sydney. A chance meeting with a charming Frenchman in Bucharest changes her travel plans forever. Acting on impulse, she agrees to visit Fredric in Paris for a week. Put a very French Frenchman together with a strong-willed Australian girl and the result is some spectacular - and often hilarious - cultural clashes. Language is a minefield of misunderstanding and the simple act of buying a baguette is fraught with social danger.

But as she navigates the highs and lows of this strange new world, from the sophisticated cafes and haute couture fashion houses to the picture postcard French countryside, little by little Sarah falls under its spell: passionate, mysterious, infuriating, and charged with that French specialty - seduction. And it becomes her home.

    " Intriguing and elucidating, but somewhat uneven in maintaining interest. Overall I enjoyed it, as an ex-pat wannabe. "

    " I loved this book! It is a non-fictional account of a journalist who moves to Paris to be with the man she loves. She makes sharp observations about cultural differences, and paints a lovely picture of the city of Paris. Well-written and really interesting. "

    " An interesting ethnography of an Aussie's move to France. Although I enjoyed this book, I didn't love it as much as I thought I would. Turnbull is a good writer, and she presents some interesting points of view on the French. "
