I picked this up at the library as I love to travel and have been to France a lot. It looked like a light novel, but I had no familiarity with this author and wanted a light weekend read. Well, it was light, that's for sure -- about as much substance as a soap opera or reality TV. This is just garbage, and couldn't even be considered literature. It's meant to appeal to female almost-middle-age readers who need to escape from their humdrum lives and think somehow it is possible to find true love with the much-younger deck guy in a couple days after their husband dumps them for the cliche younger woman and this will solve all their problems. I actually am in those demographics (40-something female) but find this insulting.
The plot is absurd; there is no character development or any reason for these two to get together. Lara is not remotely interesting, and her gaggle of girlfriends are equally shallow and annoying. There isn't any explanation of why this guy would fall for her except the usual pandering to the intended audience of how shallow younger women are (and Lara is supposedly so deep, hah, given all she does is shop and whine and has the intellect of a bowl of jello and the maturity of a 12-year old girl). I gather the audience for these romance novels like to read about shopping and restaurants as there are many descriptions of those (vicarious shopping, I guess). I suppose the author went to France once and made notes of hotels and places to put in a novel with no plot and she learned a few French words she likes to throw around. I don't understand the appeal of that except it's probably some kind of snobbism (look how cool I am to name drop places of inns in the Dordogne, etc).

While it was an easy read, as most romances are, I found the plot and the events happening therein extremely trite and redundant. A middle-aged woman escapes to Paris with a younger man after finding out her husband has been cheating on her (promising enough) but what ensues are repetitive descriptions of charming French inns, exotic food (if she mentions getting a "grand crème" one more time, I will scream!), and tepid, sentimental erotic encounters. Each chapter plays like the one before it: Lara loves the scenery, Lara loves Dan, Lara experiences self-doubt, Lara and Dan quibble, Lara goes shopping, Lara and Dan make love, Lara feels better. Ugh. Maybe a 7th grader would consider this marginally interesting, but I consider it something that would tire even the most bored, romantically-deprived reader. Check it out at your local library (at your own risk).

I recently read and loved Summer in Tuscany by Elizabeth Adler. Shortly afterwards I came across The Last Time I Saw Paris by the same author and while I enjoyed this book it wasn't nearly as good as Summer in Tuscany. Whereas Summer in Tuscany was a fun-filled read which almost served as a travelogue of the region, The Last Time I Saw Paris had a rather silly premise and didn't describe Paris nearly as interestingly as the former book.
After almost 25 years of marriage, Lara plans a trip to Paris to celebrate this milestone anniversary. But more than this it is an attempt to revitalize her failing marriage. Remembering back to their honeymoon plans every detail exactly the same as it was during their honeymoon hoping they can recreate those fun-free and happy days. Or at least this is the way Lara chooses to remember them. But Lara's husband has a surprise for her. Not only doesn't he want to recreate their honeymoon 25 years later, he no longer wants to be married to Lara preferring the company of a much younger colleague. Licking her wounds, Lara retreats to their beach house where she meets the contractor they previously hired for some odd jobs. He is young, good looking and Lara is immediately attracted to him. During a hasty moment Lara invites him to accompany her on this trip and he accepts. As one can imagine these two are now in for some very madcap and hilarious moments as everything that can happen to tourists happens to them. They arrive in Paris to find their luggage is missing, they have no reservations in a small French town and during a violent rainstorm their car breaks down. In a rather predictable plot, Lara and Don find themselves beginning a relationship in the city of love.

Lara Lewis is concerned about her marriage to a self-absorbed Doctor, and decides that a second honeymoon to Paris is just what the Dr. ordered. Unfortunately the Dr. disagrees and backs out of the trip in order to accompany a younger woman on a business trip. Lara is heartbroken and thinks she will have to go to Paris alone, but meanwhile she meets a young handyman at her beach house, and decides to take him along. During the trip, she compares her new experiences with Dan to the ones she has imagined she had with her husband. She learns some surprising truths about herself and her marriage and emerges from the trip with new confidence. The author obviously has a knowledge of and love for France and she describes the countryside in a way which makes the reader want to go and see the sights in person.
