Book Description

Feb. 4 2014
Finding love and freedom in a pen, a paintbrush… and Paris

How much money does it take to quit your job?

Exhausted and on the verge of burnout, Janice poses this questions to herself as she doodles on a notepad at her desk. Surprisingly, the answer isn't as daunting as she expected. With a little math and a lot of determination, Janice cuts back, saves up, and buys herself two years of freedom in Europe.

A few days into her stop in Paris, Janice meets Christophe, the cute butcher down the street-who doesn't speak English. Through a combination of sign language and franglais, they embark on a whirlwind Paris romance. She soon realizes that she can never return to the world of twelve-hour workdays and greasy corporate lingo. But her dwindling savings force her to find a way to fund her dreams again. So Janice turns to her three loves-words, art, and Christophe-to figure out a way to make her happily-ever-after in Paris last forever.

Read this lovely bood in less than two days. The story is soulful and meaningful and has a happy ending!!! I love books where the main character wants to make a change and then...makes it! I cheered her on as i read and was spurred by her can-do attitude.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paris Letters paperback and e book March 12 2014
I first learned about this book in a magazine article and immediately purchased the e book. After reading on my iPad I realized I NEEDED the actual book so I could gaze at the pictures and touch the pages hoping that some of Janice's bravery would rub off! Paris Letters is a story about a plucky Princess who instead of waiting for someone to save her, embarks on enchanting journey to save herself! The fact that she also finds her Prince in the end is la cerise sur le gâteau!

Janice took me on a wonderful journey. I loved the whole idea of hers, Wish I was younger to do the same. I visited Paris 5 years ago during a European tour, and have always said I want to go back to see more. Janice has made me want the dream even more. I want to do what she has done. A few days just isn't enough. A book I could read again and again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light and quick... April 21 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
...but also inspirational. Liked the author's list of exactly how she saved up to leave her mind-numbing job. Liked hearing how the Italian and French mentalities about life and work differ for the North American. Like that she is Canadian.

This book is an excellent road map on how to achieve this goal and
then how to really enjoy the decision. Janice Macleod had a plan and
worked the plan which she shares with the reader. I was rooting for her
from the first page.
