    I absolutely adored this book. It tells the tale of three women. I found this book to be fantastically funny and  heart-breakingly sad at times. I would highly recommend this as a true feel-good rom-com.

    I absolutely adored this book. It tells the tale of three women. I found this book to be fantastically funny and  heart-breakingly sad at times. I would highly recommend this as a true feel-good rom-com.

    Kate, happily married with two lovely children but she has lost herself. Her life is full of running after her husband and children which leaves no time for herself.

    Shannon, happily single and childless whilst having a fling with her boss who is looking to make their relationship more permanent and wants her to meet his grown up daughter – Shannon likes how her life is going and not sure she wants to become a family.

    Laura, living with her boyfriend who appears to be everything she wants and needs but is he really?  He doesn’t want to plan ahead and is happy with life as it is whilst Laura yearns to settle down and start a family. 

    As Kate decides to visit her friend Shannon in Paris, she doesn't share her plans with her husband or indeed her friend until she is already on her way! Kate meets Laura who is on her way to Paris for a business meeting.

    Will a weekend in Paris give them all the answer they need to move forward.  What does the future hold for these three women?  

    Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Emma Robinson for the opportunity to read and review this novel prior to publication.

    In this book the author takes us on a trip to Paris, the city of love. We meet Kate, Laura and Shannon. They have one thing in common : what to do about the future?

    Is it so bad to want to plan in advance? Is it so bad to want some time for yourself? Is it so bad to take a bit of time you spend to love life and spend it with the love of your life?

    Big questions answers have to be found for. Will all three women find what they need in order to be happy and fulfilled?

    In this book the author takes us on a trip to Paris, the city of love. We meet Kate, Laura and Shannon. They have one thing in common : what to do about the future?

    Is it so bad to want to plan in advance? Is it so bad to want some time for yourself? Is it so bad to take a bit of time you spend to love life and spend it with the love of your life?

    Big questions answers have to be found for. Will all three women find what they need in order to be happy and fulfilled?

    One by one secrets are being revealed and it seems like the past is catching up. It can be good or it can be bad ...

    The book is about love, love, love with a hint of mystery because who does not want to know what has been kept hidden?

    This story made me laugh, but made me emotional as well. It was an excellent read that I thoroughly enjoyed. 5 stars.

    Thank you, Emma Robinson, Bookouture and Netgalley.

    Any book with the word Paris in the title and I am there. Follows three women who met up in Paris due to a variety of circumstances. Each chapter is told from the POV of one of the women. Lots of changes take place in the women's lives and all have their HEA.

    This was a lovely read about three women, Kate, Shannon and Laura, all finding themselves lost in their lives, but for different reasons.

    Kate who feels lost in her life at being a stay at home Mum. Shannon, Kate’s friend, is an American living and working in Paris with secrets she hasn’t shared with her gorgeous French boyfriend, who also happens to be her boss. Laura a sales woman who wants more from her long term boyfriend and hopes the work related weekend in Paris will give her time to make

    This was a lovely read about three women, Kate, Shannon and Laura, all finding themselves lost in their lives, but for different reasons.

    Kate who feels lost in her life at being a stay at home Mum. Shannon, Kate’s friend, is an American living and working in Paris with secrets she hasn’t shared with her gorgeous French boyfriend, who also happens to be her boss. Laura a sales woman who wants more from her long term boyfriend and hopes the work related weekend in Paris will give her time to make important decisions.

    Even though my boy is now a teenager and just started working, I could really identify with Kate. I remember those times of feeling lost and alone and wanting to escape anywhere in the world. It’s a good job I couldn’t get on the Eurostar to Paris because I might have gone!

    Once again Emma Robinson has written a wonderful story with characters and a plot so compelling that I couldn’t stop reading. I so enjoyed spending time with Kate, Shannon and Laura in Paris getting to know these lovely ladies and watching the personal journeys unfold.

    I definitely recommend this if you enjoy contemporary women’s fiction and Toblerone chocolate!

    When I was a kid and I’d lost something, my dad always said ‘Go back to the place you last had it’. The problem is that what I’ve lost is… me.

    Kate loves her family more than anything, but recently she has started to feel invisible. Lying awake at three a.m. as her husband snores, panicking about shopping lists, birthday parties, and the school bake sale…

    She finds herself in the kitchen, gulping water, staring at a postcard of the Eiffel Tower from Shannon, her best friend.

    Paris, with its red wine, slippery cobbles and curly lampposts. Where the scent of freshly-baked croissants hangs in the air, and Kate last remembers feeling like herself.

    My thoughts: We start out reading about Kate and then Shannon and finally Laura. Kate meets Laura on the plane to see Shannon. Laura work for the same company as Shannon. We don't find out until later on that they all know each other. They all have problems of their own they are tying to deal with and confiding with each other and getting drunk. Also doing some impulsive things.

    Kate does everything for her family and seems burnt out. She needs time to herself. Shannon is not a family person nor the marrying type. Her boyfriend has older daughters who he wants her to meet but she keeps putting it off. Laura has been with her boyfriend for 12 years and she wants marriage, kids and the white picket fence but whenever she talks to him about it he puts it off. I loved how these 3 women come together and how they fight and lean on each other to help each other and will things all come together for them at the end on what they should really do?

    I received this from NetGalley and Bookouture for review.

    What a fun heartwarming story, set against the backdrop of a beautiful Paris!...

    This is Emma Robinsons third book and I have had the pleasure of reading them all... what I love about her books is they are so relatable, books about real people with real lives and real problems.... she tells you like it is in an engaging and humorous way.... The good... the bad... and the ugly... of being a mother, of being a wife, of being a woman... her books reaffirm the fact that you are having normal feelings

    What a fun heartwarming story, set against the backdrop of a beautiful Paris!...

    This is Emma Robinsons third book and I have had the pleasure of reading them all... what I love about her books is they are so relatable, books about real people with real lives and real problems.... she tells you like it is in an engaging and humorous way.... The good... the bad... and the ugly... of being a mother, of being a wife, of being a woman... her books reaffirm the fact that you are having normal feelings and that you’re not alone!

    I think every mother of small children has had a moment where she just wants to escape! Kate lying awake in the middle of the night unable to sleep... her husband is snoring, her for-year-old is taking over half the bed, and all she can think is; how much is a train ticket to Paris? We’ve all been there, but Cate actually purchased that ticket and got on the train! On the train she met Laura who was on the way to a business meeting, Laura is wanting to move forward in her relationship, while her boyfriend of many years seems to be just fine with its current status...When Kate arrives in Paris she meets up with an old friend Shannon, Shannon seems to have embraced life, but does Shannon have some struggles of her own? Three women all in their 30s all in very different stages of their lives...

    I would have loved to be in Paris with these three ladies, enjoying a night of wine and conversation... all three of them are so likable, and they all have their own personal troubles, and you just want everything to work out for them.... I did find Cate the most relatable of the three, simply because that is the path I chose in life... I had three small children in my 30s, but now that they are all grown up what I wouldn’t do to spend the day with them when they were little... I guess we are all a little guilty of the grass is always greener... this book was Filled with a lot of fun, A lot of a motion, and a lot of heart!

    Absolutely recommend to anyone who enjoys a good book with great characters that will make you laugh and realized that you aren’t the only one!

    Didn't love this or hate it. The author has a great writing style especially with the delivery of the little nuggets of important information being dropped at pertinent points, which to be honest is what in the main kept me reading the book, but I loved the fact I felt like I was actually in Paris with the characters with the vivid descriptions of the locale involved.

    The characters were however where I struggled. Because for three women all over the age of thirty, none of them behaved that way and I found myself liking each of them less and less as the book progressed.

    On the strength of this story, I am not 100% certain I would read anything else by this author...

    What's lost is forever lost or is it?

    Kate feels lost, torn from her family, and sees an opportunity to travel to Paris with her bestie Shannon.

    The interaction between characters was especially poignant as each brings so much excitement and intrigue.

    Shannon, Laura, Kate - each with there own individual circumstances about growing their sisterhood while balancing their home life and families.

    The question of when is the right time to settle down and have children also comes up as well as how to satisfy those internal needs as the heat of passion turns up.

    Could co workers truly just be friends?

    The shocker for me was with Shannon and Adam as that twister wasn't on my radar.

    A truly all around good read .

    Thank you to Emma, the publisher, NetGalley, and Aldiko for this ARC in exchange for this honest review.

    I’m sure many of us are familiar with sleepless nights, when the brain just won’t shut down long enough for you to relax, when you maybe start to feel a little punchy and even the most stupid idea suddenly seems like the best one ever.

    It is during such a sleepless night that Kate realises she’s lost her way. Married to Luke and a stay-at-home mum to two children, she seems to have forgotten who she truly is. Her dad always told her that when you lost something, you needed to go back to the place

    I’m sure many of us are familiar with sleepless nights, when the brain just won’t shut down long enough for you to relax, when you maybe start to feel a little punchy and even the most stupid idea suddenly seems like the best one ever.

    It is during such a sleepless night that Kate realises she’s lost her way. Married to Luke and a stay-at-home mum to two children, she seems to have forgotten who she truly is. Her dad always told her that when you lost something, you needed to go back to the place where you last had it. So to find herself again, Kate books a one way ticket to Paris to see her best friend, Shannon.

    Shannon is having problems of her own though and Kate couldn’t have picked a worse weekend to show up unannounced. Because Shannon suddenly finds herself in a position she’s desperately been trying to avoid. On the Eurostar to Paris, Kate meets Laura and thus, the scene is set for a memorable weekend.

    These three women find themselves at a crossroads in their lives. Feelings need to be discussed, secrets need to come out in the open and decisions must be made. One Way Ticket to Paris is a wonderfully entertaining story about love, friendship and how sometimes in the midst of the chaos life throws at us, all you need is some time to just breathe and be yourself again.

    This isn’t exactly the type of genre I normally go for but I do enjoy Emma Robinson’s writing. Her characters always come across realistic and believable and I have no doubt some of the things Kate, Shannon and Laura deal with are entirely relatable to some readers. From men with commitment phobias, to dealing with pushy mums at your children’s schools yapping on about bake sales and the like, to not having a minute to yourself, which means a clean and quiet bathroom in a hotel suddenly feels like paradise on earth.

    With a few chuckles along the way, likeable characters to sympathise with and root for and a healthy dose of romance, this feel-good story is sure to warm your hearts.
