My Review

I am sad to report but I was not a huge fan of most of the stories in this collection. Although, the first three stories were not bad. The first one, Paris for One was more of a full length story. I really got into the story and Nell. She may not have planned to go to Paris alone but Nell really did discover herself and what she is capable of. Experiencing Paris through Nell's eyes was nice. A good happy ending.

Than there is Between the Tweets. Which at first I was not sure about this short story but as the storyline played out I was into it. The ending was a shocker. What I liked about Love in the Afternoon was that it showed you that love does not have to happen just at night or in the morning. A quickie in the afternoon is just fine. Also, the right pair of high heels does not hurt. The other stories while not bad just were not as memorable.
