One Way Ticket to Paris by Emma Robinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When I was a kid and I’d lost something, my dad always said ‘Go back to the place you last had it’. The problem is that what I’ve lost is… me.
Kate loves her family more than anything, but recently she has started to feel invisible. Lying awake at three a.m. as her husband snores, panicking about shopping lists, birthday parties, and the school bake sale…
She finds herself in the kitchen, gulping water, staring at a postcard of the Eiffel Tower from Shannon, her best friend.
Paris, with its red wine, slippery cobbles and curly lampposts. Where the scent of freshly-baked croissants hangs in the air, and Kate last remembers feeling like herself.
My thoughts: We start out reading about Kate and then Shannon and finally Laura. Kate meets Laura on the plane to see Shannon. Laura work for the same company as Shannon. We don't find out until later on that they all know each other. They all have problems of their own they are tying to deal with and confiding with each other and getting drunk. Also doing some impulsive things.
Kate does everything for her family and seems burnt out. She needs time to herself. Shannon is not a family person nor the marrying type. Her boyfriend has older daughters who he wants her to meet but she keeps putting it off. Laura has been with her boyfriend for 12 years and she wants marriage, kids and the white picket fence but whenever she talks to him about it he puts it off. I loved how these 3 women come together and how they fight and lean on each other to help each other and will things all come together for them at the end on what they should really do?
I received this from NetGalley and Bookouture for review.
