Blame It on Paris by Laura Florand is a semiautobiographical novel that tells the story of Laura, a student in Paris who doesn’t like the city but stumbles upon a waiter that she can’t resist. I picked this up thinking it would be a fun little chick lit novel and in some ways it is. The romance is delightful and it is a very funny novel. But I found myself entranced by seeing the two cultures interact. It wasn’t always pretty, but they learned from each other and we get to learn vicariously along the way.
