Ava and her best friend Debs arrive in Paris just as the snow starts to fall. The Eiffel Tower glitters gold and the scent of spiced wine is all around, but all Ava can think about is Leo, her no-good, cheating ex.
Debs is on a mission to make Ava smile again, and as they tour the Christmas markets, watch lamplight glittering on the river Seine, and eat their body weight in pain-au-chocolat, Ava remembers there’s more to life than men … Until they cross paths with handsome, mysterious photographer Julien with his French accent and hazelnut eyes that seem to see right inside her.
Julian, damaged and grieving following the death of his sister and a parent who has moved on with his life. Julian, who has put his own life on hold when he meets Ava.
Ava is the girl running away, running away from Waitrose, well not really. Ava is running from her mother and the life she doesn’t want as a stand in model for her mother’s agency.
Two lost souls finding love and redemption in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. What’s not to love?
