        Okay, so a novel set in Paris is not a baguette and a bottle of wine by the Seine with an adorably floppy-haired Frenchman. But reading one (or all) of these 10 books .   A missing person, a grieving family, a curious clue: a half-finished manuscript set in Paris. Heading off in search of its author, a mother and her daughters find themselves in France, rescuing a failing bookstore and drawing closer to unexpected truths/5(6).

        Reading a few books set in Paris will get you yearning for an overseas adventure. If your children are too young to appreciate a trip to the City of Lights, I recommend curling up with a few picture books featuring croissants, baguettes, macarons and crêpes (hmm, I may be a little hungry) and taking a little armchair holiday. A missing person, a grieving family, a curious clue: a half-finished manuscript set in Paris. Heading off in search of its author, a mother and her daughters find themselves in France, rescuing a failing bookstore and drawing closer to unexpected truths. Once a week, I chase men who are not my husband/5.

        The Paris Agricultural society is a proud member of the following organizations: Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies, Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions, Paris and District Chamber of Commerce, International Association of Fairs and Expositions and is recognized as one of the Top Events by Festivals and Events Ontario. At once haunting and charming, Paris by the Book follows one woman’s journey of self-discovery as her story is being rewritten, exploring the power of family and the magic that hides within the pages of a book.
