[STARRED REVIEW]
When Isla, loopy on medication after a dentist appointment, finds herself in the same Manhattan café as her crush object, Josh, she’s able to do something she’s never managed in the three years they’ve attended the same boarding school in Paris: talk to him. Lo and behold, it turns out that he likes her too, and once they’re back in France, a relationship blossoms. Alas, the course of true love never did run smooth, and pressures both internal (Isla’s self-doubt) and external (Josh’s father’s Senate reelection campaign) force them apart. Is their love strong enough to bring them back together? Fans will relish appearances by characters from Perkins’s Anna and the French Kiss (2011) and Lola and the Boy Next Door (2013, both Dutton) in this sweet, charming series third that will make readers feel like they’re in Paris too. Realistic characters, spot-on dialogue, and a truly delightful romance make for a novel that will delight the author’s fans and win her legions of new one.—Stephanie Klose, Library Journal
