Praise for
Kissed in Paris

 

“Like café au lait and a chocolate croissant, Juliette Sobanet serves up a delicious story to be savored and shared. Too much wine, a charming Frenchman, and a stolen ring spell disaster for uber-organized Chloe Turner. Je t’aime
Kissed in Paris
!” -Lauren Clark, author of
Dancing Naked in Dixie
and
Stay Tuned

 

“This madcap romantic comedy is full of thrills and adventure, and it is the first novel in many years that interrupted my sleep and left me craving for more.” -Komal Mansoor of
The Review Girl

 

“From my patio, I could smell the melted cheese and chocolate on the streets of Annecy. I envisioned a vineyard outside of Lyon, and the scent of lavender and rosemary was real . . . if only for a moment.
Kissed in Paris
by Juliette Sobanet is the best way to travel to Paris without a passport.” -Peggy Randall-Martin, author of
Backwater

 


Kissed in Paris
is the perfect balance of fun, romance, and adventure. Sobanet had me laughing out loud, but she also had me in tears. Her easy voice and pacing made the book fly by. You know a book is a great read when you do more cardio at the gym just to keep reading it. Can't wait to see what's next from Sobanet.” -Rachel Kall, writer of romantic suspense

 

“Ms. Sobanet's descriptions of French pastries and wine will place hints of lavender and butter on the tip of your tongue and leave you longing for a skimpy red dress to wear while gallivanting around the Alps with a handsome, chain-smoking stranger.” -Jennie Shaw of
Well Shut the Front Door

 

 

I loved, loved, loved this story!
Kissed in Paris
is a fabulous,
fast-paced romance that I would highly recommend.
I can't wait to read Juliette Sobanet's next novel!” -Candy Morton of
So Little Time

 

Praise for
Sleeping with Paris

 

“This fun, fast-paced debut novel by Sobanet is the kind of story you want to pick up at the end of the day with a glass of wine and let the rest of the world fall away.” -Sophie Moss, author of
The Selkie Spell

 

“This book was a breath of fresh Parisian air, full of butter croissants, fine wines, and the rush of life one can only feel in the streets of Paris. Juliette Sobanet is an amazing author who knows how to tell a real story, one that makes you angry, sad, giddy, and feeling a bit sexy too.
Sleeping with Paris
has become my favorite read of 2012.” -Thomas Amo, author of
An Apple for Zoe

 

“This story of a twenty-something grad student in Paris trying to mend her broken heart while ‘dating like a man’ may sound like one you've read before. But, trust me, it's not. Just as
West Side Story
was a new telling of
Romeo & Juliet
,
Sleeping with Paris
is a fresh approach to this tale. This book had me wiggling in my seat, laughing out loud, and itching to book a trip to Paris!” -Stana Warren, avid reader and Francophile

 

“A fun read about a heartbroken American newcomer to the City of Love . . . and how she manages to overcome her hurt (and various other obstacles, along the way!). If you love Paris, you'll definitely enjoy this. I did!” -
Talli Roland, author of
Build A Man

 

“You remember the Calgon jingle ‘Take Me Away?’
Sleeping with Paris
does exactly that. It makes you want to pour yourself a glass of wine (or eat some delicious chocolate), dive into the book, and leave your cares and worries behind. I haven't read a chick lit novel in a while that was this romantic and entertaining.” -Amy Bromberg of
Chick Lit Central

 

“Anyone who loves the story of a strong woman finding herself and her heart is going to be absolutely enamored with this book.” -Michelle Bell of
Michelle’s Book Nook

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

 

I would like to thank my friends and family for your unending enthusiasm and support. Amanda, thank you for devouring my book on your iPhone and for being such a wonderful cousin and friend. Huge thanks also to Kelly for reading my debut novel in its earliest stages, and to James and Zack for being the first male readers to test the waters.

Special thanks to my amazing agent, Kevan Lyon, for your insight and guidance. I would not be here without your support. And to Leslie, thank you for your continuous encouragement and belief in me. I appreciate it more than you know.

Thanks to the fabulous support network I’ve made through blogging, Twitter and Facebook this past year. I didn’t realize it was possible to make lasting friendships online, but you’ve proved me wrong.

Mom, thank you for always telling me that I could be anything I wanted to be. And to Sean, thank you for listening to all of my “What if’s,” even when you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about.

Finally, I’d like to thank every single reader who has given my books a chance, and especially those who’ve written to me with words of support and encouragement. It makes me happier than a love-struck woman in Paris to know that you’re enjoying my stories!
