“Exhilarating and enchanting . . . brims with a casual wisdom about life.”—Chicago Tribune In 2009, New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James took a leap that many people dream about: She sold her house, took a sabbatical from her job as a Shakespeare professor, and moved her family to Paris. This memoir chronicles her joyful year in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Eloisa revels in the ordinary pleasures of life—discovering corner museums that tourists overlook, chronicling Frenchwomen’s sartorial triumphs, walking from one end of Paris to another. She copes with her Italian husband’s notions of quality time; her two hilarious children, ages eleven and fifteen, as they navigate schools—not to mention puberty—in a foreign language; and her mother-in-law’s raised eyebrow in the kitchen (even as she overfeeds Milo, the family dog). Paris in Love invites the reader into the life of a most enchanting family, framed by la ville de l’amour. NATIONAL BESTSELLER “In this delightful charm-bracelet of a memoir, [Eloisa James shares] her adventures as an American suddenly immersed in all things French—food, clothes, joie de vivre.”—People “Enchanting . . . gives the reader a sense of being immersed along with James in Paris for a year . . . you see the rain, taste the food, observe the people.”—USA Today “This delectable confection, which includes recipes, is more than a visit to a glorious city: it is also a tour of a family, a marriage, and a love that has no borders. Très magnifique!”—Library Journal (starred review)

Floating in time between 2015 and 1944, this novel both celebrates and laments exalted hopes and broken dreams. The narrator is a sentient, unique, dying woman in hospice who "talks out" her memories via the cassette tapes that her favorite caregiver loyally provides. The heart of her tale revolves around being in the Women's Army Corps (the WACs) between 1943-1945, when she had two life-transforming encounters with a soldier named Jerry. They're both products of their time, in love with MGM musicals and the great Swing Bands, and also much influenced by the best writers of their epoch. We know "Jerry," of course, as J. D. Salinger. But in this novel, we're presented with a wartime, uniformed, pre-fame, pre-"Catcher" G. I. Salinger. And from their chance meeting in the fall of 1943 (when they witness a final stateside performance by Glenn Miller's Army Air Force Band in New York) to a brief reunion in Liberated Paris in the waning days of August 1944 (where an older, exhausted Hemingway blesses the young, aspiring Salinger), our narrator conjures up the echoes of an era. With her own life winding down during one season in hospice, the war years (and so much more) are always on her mind. This narrative is her testimonial, on behalf of her generation. "We share not only the narrator's memories, but also her passion for literature, for music, and for film; plus her insightful zest for life that leads to a love affair with one of the great authors of the 20th century. A smart and poignant journey through a life once lighthearted and bittersweet." --Kenneth Slawenski, International bestselling author of J. D. Salinger: A Life "The plucky heroine of this inventive novel may be paralyzed and dying, but her vibrant mind is a treasury of her generation's politics and culture, especially its popular music. I found myself singing along with her on every page." --Hilma Wolitzer, New York Times bestselling author of An Available Man, Summer Reading, The Doctor's Daughter, In the Flesh, and other novels "M. J. Moore proves that not all compelling, worthwhile stories about WWII have yet been told or imagined..."--Erica Heller, author of Yossarian Slept Here: When Joseph Heller Was Dad, The Apthorp was Home, and Life Was a Catch-22

Ripped from the pages of the New York Times bestselling series The Family Business, Carl Weber and Eric Pete bring you To Paris with Love, a solo story about their two most popular characters to date—the bright, sexy, and deadly Paris Duncan and her flamboyant and cunning twin brother, Rio. It's spring break and Paris Duncan is on the verge of graduating at the top of her class from Chi's Finishing School, one of Europe's most exclusive private academies. At Chi's students not only learn the three Rs, but they also learn the deadly art of assassination. Like most of her classmates, Paris is looking forward to going back home. She can't wait to get back to the bright lights of New York City, where she plans on clubbing with her twin brother Rio, scarfing down her mom's cooking, and wearing out her father's credit cards. A family crisis puts an end to her trip home in favor of a solo trip to the French Riviera. Rio Duncan has been accepted into one of the most prestigious law schools in the country and his father, LC Duncan, couldn't be more proud of him. Unfortunately for LC, Rio has plans of his own, and they don't include law school. If that weren't surprise enough, Rio's got a few more things to tell his dear old dad, one of which is that he is gay. Now that he's come out of the closet, Rio is in the wind. He's headed to Europe to live life by his own rules and hook up with his sister for some fun in the European sun. Together Rio and Paris will do what they do best—have fun, find trouble, and break men's hearts. Travel with Weber and Pete to Europe, to see how Paris and Rio became the dynamic duo of the Duncan clan.
