Paris Letters by Janice MacLeod
Exhausted and on the verge of a burnout, Janice Macleod asks herself exactly how much money will it take for her to quit her job. With a little math and a lot of determination, she decides to buy herself two years of freedom in Europe. In Paris, she falls in love with a butcher who can’t speak a bit of English. Through a combination of sign language and franglais, they embark on a whirlwind romance and Janice becomes set on making this love affair in Paris her happily ever after.
She soon realizes that she can never return to the world of twelve-hour workdays and greasy corporate lingo. But her dwindling savings force her to find a way to fund her dreams again. So Janice turns to her three loves—words, art, and Christophe—to figure out a way to make her happily-ever-after in Paris last forever.
Through her personal letters Janice tells a story that is both touching and inspiring. She allows her readers a deeply personal look into her life in Paris, her adventures, and her romantic liaisons with one certain butcher. `
