It’s been seven years since Chelsea Martin embarked on her yearlong postcollege European adventure. Since then, she’s lost her mother to cancer and watched her sister marry twice, while Chelsea’s thrown herself into work, becoming one of the most talented fundraisers for the American Cancer Coalition, and with the exception of one annoyingly competent coworker, Jason Knightley, her status as most successful moneymaker is unquestioned.

When her introverted mathematician father announces he’s getting remarried, Chelsea is forced to acknowledge that her life stopped after her mother died and that the last time she can remember being happy, in love, or enjoying her life was on her year abroad. Inspired to retrace her steps–to find Colin in Ireland, Jean Claude in France, and Marcelino in Italy–Chelsea hopes that one of these three men who stole her heart so many years ago can help her find it again.

From the start of her journey nothing goes as planned, but as Chelsea reconnects with her old self, she also finds love in the very last place she expected.

Review of Paris is Always a Good Idea

Review (4.5 Stars): I’ve always adored Ms. McKinlay’s cozy mystery series and I jumped at the chance to read her new romance, Paris is Always a Good Idea.  This story was delightfully funny and Chelsea was a character that you will fall in love with.  Becoming an adult is a hard thing and Chelsea felt as though she had lost the carefree person that she once was.  By retracing her journey that she had taken years ago through Europe, Chelsea felt like she might be able to find the person that she once was.  She found more than she bargained for and found that the journey provides more insight than finally making it to your destination.  Wonderful story.
