Annie in Paris Summary

Personal shopper Annie Valentine is back! Older and bolder!

Fashion guru Annie is struggling to cope with her hectic life. With the demands of two older children, plus four-year-old twins, her marriage to Ed is in a romance-free rut and she’s clinging by a couture thread to her job as the nation’s favourite fashion fixer.

And where is Svetlana, her multi-millionaire friend, when Annie needs her? Busy with an expensive mid-life crisis, that’s where!

When Ed gets the chance to teach in Paris, Annie thinks time apart could be the answer. Wrong!

In Paris, Ed transforms into a debonair silver fox, attracting the attentions of stylish siren Sylvie.

Annie can’t lose her man or the job she loves, so bundling her bags, her babies and a reluctant Svetlana onto the Eurostar, she sets off to the rescue. But can the City of Love deliver the ooh la la that her marriage, and her fashion series, so desperately needs?

Another brilliant laugh out loud emotional read, perfect for fans of Fiona Gibson, Tracy Bloom and Sophie Ranald!

Annie in Paris Review

This story follows the lives of fashion stylist Annie, who hosts her own show along with her extremely wealthy friend Svetlana. When Annie’s husband, Ed, gets a job in Paris (after telling her he needs time alone) and she sees a photo of him with a beautiful French woman on Instagram she decided that filming a segment for the show in Paris is the best way to solve their marriage woes.

What follows is a hilarious adventure in the French capital with Annie bringing her young twins with her and ambushing Ed in his flat, which he is not happy about. Throw in a calamitous childcare experience and slightly stalker-ish behaviour from Annie and the whole trip is threatening to be a complete disaster. Can Annie and Ed save their marriage and will Annie’s idea for a show work?

I absolutely loved Annie in Paris. It is funny, easy to read and light-hearted, which is just what I wanted!

I loved the little fashion tip intros to each chapter and adored both Annie and Svetlana whilst thinking Ed could do with a wake-up call!

The writing is funny and I raced through the story. It is part of a series of books however it’s the first one I have read and can be read as a standalone easily. I wish I’d read all the others now! A brilliant read.
