By Catherine Rider


Publisher: Kids Can Press
Publication Date: September 4, 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Serena has just flown all the way to Paris for a special pre-Christmas weekend with her sister, Lara. They plan to retrace the steps of their parents' long-ago honeymoon in Paris, and create a scrapbook for their bereaved mother to remember it by. 

It's supposed to be serious sister bonding...until Lara takes off with her boyfriend instead.

Jean-Luc is Serena's Plan B, a friend of a friend of Lara's, who has some space in a place where Serena can stay. Just like his latest relationship, his photography final has been an epic fail. He has one night to retake all his pictures if he is to stay in school. 

Jean-Luc can't stand Serena's loud voice or her bright orange sneakers.

Serena can't stand his haughty manners or the way his camera is always in her face.

Together, though, they set out into a cold night that will warm their hearts, creating unforgettable photos and fresh romantic sparks in the City of Lights.

Review & Wrap-Up:

Kiss Me in Paris is a cute and sweet story of a girl going to Paris to meet up with her sister to go on a ‘Love Tour’ of Paris with her sister, only to find her sister won’t be there and has pawned her off onto a friend of her boyfriend.

Serena’s character is one that I think most young girls who are scared of disappointing their parents but are on the precipice to finding their own footing in the world can relate to. Serena wants so badly to hold on to the memory of her late father and his love for her mother that while in Paris on her ‘Love Tour,’ she’s too busy trying to recreate their love and magic, that she’s too flustered to realize her very own happening in front of her. Thankfully Jean-Luc’s photography makes her lose her footing and has her falling into her own ‘Love Tour’ of Paris.

Catherine Rider’s playful story of being young and falling in love in Paris is one that any young girl dreaming of being in love in a foreign country will swoon after!


From one bookaholic to another, I hope I’ve helped you find your next fix.
