Paris Is Always a Good Idea by Jenn McKinlay ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

I'm a relatively new fan of Jenn McKinlay, but she has quickly become one of my favorite cozy mystery authors. So I was eager to try her new novel Paris Is Always a Good Idea, especially since it was not a cozy mystery.

July 2020; Berkley; 978-0593101353
audio, ebook, print (352 pages); chick lit
I was delighted with Paris Is Always a Good Idea. McKinlay has created wonderful characters, just as I had come to expect from her cozies. I loved Chelsea. She felt so real and my heart really went out to her.

The backdrop of a European vacation is perfect for a summer read, particularly given that this year most of us probably aren't traveling much. It did cross my mind a time or two that this trip wouldn't have been possible this year. Perhaps that is what made it such a great bit of escapism reading.

It has all the hallmarks of a fun chic-lit novel. The situations that Chelsea finds herself in when she goes looking for the guys she fell in love with during her year abroad are just ridiculous enough to give a lighthearted tone to the story.

The ending is kind of obvious, but the journey is so much fun that I didn't mind.
