About the Book:

After having her heart broken at the base of the Eiffel Tower, Chicagoan Tristin Calhoun thinks Paris is highly overrated and believes, after thirty years of experience, that all men cheat. But, when her best friend calls begging for her help, Tristin puts up with the traffic, dog poop, and arrogant Frenchmen of the City of Lights to find out what her friend’s man is up to when he disappears for hours. She assumes that after one week in Paris, she’ll find proof the husband is cheating, console her friend, and go back home to decorating other people’s swanky lake view apartments. She does not expect to meet Lucas Chevalier, a chef desperate to save his restaurant. Despite the warnings in her head, her heart believes maybe he is a truffle among fungi. Can Lucas convince her that not all men are porc?

Author's Note:

This is a work-in-progress. I previously posted it under a different name, but it has undergone some significant changes since. If you have already read it, I would appreciate another look. If you haven't seen it before, please let me know what you think! Thanks, Ella
