Monday Musings: Paris, Giveaways, and More!

I've been thinking of Paris lately. :) Probably because I've been posting articles for Jet Set January on social media, and musing on my favorite travels. I've only been to Paris once, back in 1993, and it was an experience--the maze of streets, the Seine, the old buildings, the roses blooming outside Notre Dame, the museums, oh, the museums! (I love museums.). The Musee d'Orsay was a favorite, mostly for its collection of Impressionists. Today is Berthe Morisot's birthday; she was considered one of the great impressionist painters, and you can see why:

I'll post more on Wednesday about museums and Paris. Also today, coincidentally, is a giveaway from Clean Wholesome Romance (part of the month-long Forever Yours Clean Romance Event I'm participating in--if you click, you can enter the kick-off giveaway until February 3, 2019) featuring author Jennie Goutet, and her book A Friend in Paris. Last I looked, the book was only .99cents on Amazon! It sounds like a good read, especially if you like sweet romance set in Paris. There's also a $25 Amazon/PayPal Giveaway (and more information on Jennie's book) if you click through the link at the end of this post. My book set in Paris, Paris Interlude, is also .99cents this week on Amazon (1/16--1/20). Check them both out and happy reading!

A Friend in Paris by Jennie Goutet
Friendship between a talented young artist and her handsome French neighbor is a promising start—until it’s not enough.
April promised her dying father she would study painting in Paris, but friends are few, her budget is tight, and her landlord increasingly won’t take “no” for an answer. Then she meets Victor.
Victor is as chivalrous as he is wealthy, and if it weren’t for him, April would have already left the City of Light behind. Too bad Victor still has eyes for his ex-girlfriend, who is now back on the scene and wants to get married.
Although April and Victor swore to remain just friends, magical Paris seems to weave a different spell. The more their connection deepens, the more it becomes difficult to keep a proper distance. Or to remember why they should.

Do you enjoy books set in Paris and other European cities? Tell me some of your favorites!
