Event planner Samantha Hunter is prepared for a few challenges when escorting a group of good ole boy beer distributors to Paris, the city of haute cuisine and fine wines. However, she doesn’t foresee being passed up for a promotion because she is too professional and doesn’t knock back beers with her clients.
Her focus soon switches from landing the well-deserved promotion to finding her free-spirited sister, who lives in Paris and has disappeared, leaving behind family secrets to be uncovered. A sexy puppeteer helps Samantha search for clues to her sister’s whereabouts and teaches her to embrace her inner child. And a funeral-crashing psychic demonstrates the importance of living life to the fullest. It takes Samantha’s life spiraling out of control for her to finally get a life.
At first, Samantha Hunter doesn’t know if she does or not. Why? Because all work and no play has made Sam one dull girl. But her co-dependent personality won’t let her nose stay out of everyone else’s business, and her sister throws her one curve ball after another…not to mention the additional rugs pulled out by her boss/boyfriend. When her world spirals out of control faster than an acrophobe on the Eiffel Tower, Samantha will have to come to terms with the fact that her life wasn’t as perfect as the facade she’s built.
This fun, fast read had me captivated from the first scene. One part entertaining romantic comedy. Mix with the drama of a chick lit where the woman needs to find herself, her purpose, and prioritize what she really needs and wants in life. And add the mystery of a missing person…or two, and you get Samantha Hunter’s mixed up life! Put all this in the bowl of a Paris background, and you get an entertaining diversion from real life that you will barely be able to put down.

She and her friends were huge Charlie’s Angels fans and she would sit in her bedroom at night writing scripts for them to act out at recess the following day. She was Kelly Garrett. The journey from fourth grade script writer to published author wasn’t an easy one, but it was always an adventure and the final destination was well worth it. When she’s not traveling for her job as an event planner, or tracing her ancestry roots through Ireland, she’s at home in Wisconsin working on her next novel, bouncing ideas off her husband Mark, and her cats Quigley and Frankie.
