Nell is twenty six and has never been to Paris before. Randomly she decided to buy some tickets to go with her boyfriend. Unfortunately her boyfriend is known for being unreliable and at the last moment backside out of the plans leaving Nell alone in a city she's never been to. After a couple of mishaps she decide to stay and do things on her own.

I enjoyed this book I thought I was pretty good. I enjoyed getting to see any Nell come into her own and finally do things on her own. She has been known to stick to a certain way and she finally got out of the box and was doing things for herself. She was finally enjoying herself. I loved her meddling best friends. I love that there was more than one point of view. I thought it was sweet getting to see what was between the two main characters and I thought it had a nice ending. It would have been nice if it was longer but I think it was nice for what it was.

As for the other stories in the book I thought that they were okay but didn't care for them much to be honest.
