Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir by Eliza Watson



When Samantha heads to Paris to do her job as an event planner, she never dreams how her whole world will change.  She gets there and visits her sister Libby, who is SURPRISE 8 months pregnant, and no daddy to the baby in sight.   Luc, the friendly neighbor, is very helpful when she searches for her sister after she disappears.   Samantha feels her life spiraling out of control and not only wants to get control again, but needs to reevaluate her goals. 

This is a story that pulls you right in.  I found myself thinking about the book and the characters when I put it down and when I went to bed at night.   The need to have to keep reading was more than I had felt in a long time.  I wanted to know what was happening to Libby and her baby, was Samantha finding happiness, and of course I needed to know what Luc was up to. 

Eliza Watson wrote Kissing My Old Life Au Revior with just the right amount of emotions.  I laughed, I cried, and I sighed (a lot).  The relationship between Libby and Samantha made me laugh, not cause it was funny, but I could relate so much.  This is the relationship that I had with my sister.  The growing up and fighting so much as youngsters but then as we grew older I took on that older sister role and made sure she was protected just as Samantha did for Libby.  I cried for the relationship between the girls and their parents.  Having neither parent there for the support and the guidance every child needs growing up was hard for me to imagine, as I have both my parents still around, but I felt for them.  The sighing…well the relationship between Luc and Samantha just made me sigh.  There were other times that I felt these feelings but I do not want to give away too much of the story. 

Eliza Watson has earned a spot on my To Read Authors list.  I will highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for a light, fun, and easy read.   I found it perfect for the beach or the pool.
