Jordan will have another run-in with a Goddess of Love and I wanted to have a different setting for the second book that reflects the feel of this series.
So what perfect place for Jordan to visit but the city of romance:
Now I haven't been to Paris...yet, that is but my niece Shaundra has been there. She's going to share some of her experiences which I thought will be perfect for Jordan.
I also was able to get a galley of a memoir from Sourcebooks:
This is a memoir of a woman who lives in Paris and ends up having a love affair with not only the city but the food. I decided to Google the recommended places and sweets.
Macarons from Pierre Herme.
Le cookie au chocolat made with Valrhona chocolate and toasted pecans from Eric Kayser
Madeleines from Fabrice:
Almond croissant from Boulangerie Julien
Oh, and Jordan has to go to Angelina for chocolat chaud
Now I just need to find my own local French bakery and sample some of the sweets for myself. Like I mentioned before, research is a tough job but someone's got to do it!
I think Audrey Hepburn would approve, don't you?
