It takes two to tango in the City of Love...

Paris. City of love, city of romance. The last place you want to go to on a work trip when you're in the middle of an epic dry spell.  
But that's where Poppy is headed, along with her colleague Charlie, who's shallow and annoying but very, very good-looking.  
During a white-wine-fuelled Skype session with her friend Alice in LA, Poppy concocts the perfect plan: work by day, and have some no-strings fun with Charlie by night.
  Of course, it might prove a little more complicated than that, but it's nothing Poppy can't handle - or is it?

Poppy is looking for a man, she has contemplated online dating, although she isn't sure how to write an attractive profile that will interest a member of the opposite sex. Deciding that maybe a trip to meet a new client  in Paris with her handsome colleague Charlie, she could finally get out of her funk by sleeping with him. Although, whereas Paris is one of the romantic cities in the world, it is also has some of the many mysteries as well. 

Poppy's plan was just under way when she came face-to-face with the client, a handsome man who was just as romantic as the city itself. Jonathan has lived in Paris for many years, with his writing he could write anywhere in the world, though he chose Paris. Poppy can't help but get drawn to this intelligent man that lives in the city of Love, so when she decides to have a fling with this handsome writer, she knows what she is getting herself in for but then everything starts to fall apart around her and her plan to have a meaning less fling just got even more complicated.

Poppy Does Paris is a fabulous short story that has Paris, romantic flings and most importantly handsome men that fill the pages. With its likeable characters, gorgeous sights and  amusing moments, I loved everything about Poppy Does Paris, so much so that I didn't want it to end! 

If I had to sum this book up in three words, they would be Witty, Funny and Magical

Another day, another book,
