Paris Is Always A Good Idea by Nicholas Barreau

After Robert Sherman's mother dies, he is at a loose end. He doesn't want to work as a lawyer for the family firm and he is pretty tired of his nagging girlfriend. When he is offered a job in Paris, he remembers his mother saying that ''Paris is always a good idea'. However, he turns up only to find that his story has been plagiarised!

Rosalie Laurent, a pretty young postcard-shop owner thinks that her financial crisis is over when she illustrates 'The Blue Tiger' but now she is confronted by this mad American who says that the story is stolen!

This is an enchanting, fairy-tale like novel, redolent of the atmosphere of Paris, with lovely characters. I love Nicholas Barreau's books!
