Twenty-eight-year old Annabel Green is about to tie the knot with her college love, an aspiring author Jeremy Blake, but her plans for an ideal wedding are rudely interrupted when she catches Jeremy kissing his gorgeous book agent.

Shell-shocked by Jeremy’s betrayal, Annabel retreats into the quiet routine of TV dinners and solitary evenings. It is then that Annabel’s best friend, fashion designer Lilly Clayton, sets herself on a mission to draw Annabel out of her shell. In an attempt to persuade Annabel to keep an open mind on dating, Lilly takes Annabel for a stunning makeover, but after Annabel passes on a date with a dashing entrepreneur, Lilly decides that more drastic measures are needed. Lilly invites Annabel to see a palm reader who gives Annabel a lucky charm that is supposed to help her find true love.

A few weeks later, during her trip to Paris, Annabel meets a handsome Parisian, and as the two embark on a whirlwind romance, she starts to believe in the power of the talisman the palm reader has given her. But what Annabel doesn’t know is that Lilly is hiding a secret that could unravel her faith in her newly found luck in love.

What I thought

This was a very cute story! I really enjoyed reading this. To be honest, sometimes the covers can throw me off. I thought it would be super cheesy but it really wasn't. It was sweet, charming and very romantic!

The premise was interesting. Annabel ends up finding her fiance kissing his book agent and decides to chuck him. Good for Annabel! But the real part of the story wasn't just trying to get over the hurt and pain that came along with being cheated on, but learning to love again. And that made this story such a treat to read!

I thought this was written really well. The narrative was easy to read and the story flowed so well. It's written in third person and there were a few times it changed character views, but for the most part it stays with Annabel. What I liked even more was that Annabel wasn't the only one finding love. We had some great side stories filled with couples falling in love.

Definitely read worthy! If you haven't taken a chance on this book, definitely check it out. Plenty of romance to melt the heart!

Sounds like a cute story! I've really been all about the romance lately (though I haven't had a chance to read many because of the review books I have). I'll have to remember this one is good! Awesome review!

Aimee this one was a fast easy contemporary romance that kept me wanting to strangle Jeremy, until he became too pathetic for words. Glad to be a part of the tour for this author, otherwise would have missed a very cute read!

Thanks! I'm always on a romance kick!

I'm glad I got to read it too! If it wasn't for the tour I might never have known about this book.
