The Paris Effect by K.S.R. Burns

Friendship, loss, and a tantalizing trip to Paris…
•  Discover a Paris that few casual tourists see" (Paris Voice) in this highly praised #1 Amazon Best Seller in Women's Fiction.
•  A can't-put-down… absorbing adventure—Kirkus Reviews.

When Amy loses her best friend, Kat, to cancer, she knows their dream of a secret trip to Paris will never come true. Yet Kat’s words haunt her, urging her to embark on the Paris trip alone and shed the dissatisfaction of her life in Phoenix.

Little by little, Amy, grappling with a failing marriage and struggling with painful childhood memories, lets herself be swayed. Guided by Kat’s bold voice, Amy sneaks off to Paris while her husband is away on a business trip. Once there, however, she finds that her problems have come right along with her.

Through her adventures, laced with luscious descriptions of food and Paris, Amy learns that often in life, love and friendship, nothing is exactly as it seems. Will Amy choose the life she’s discovered in Paris or decide to revive the one she left behind?


•  A can't-put-down-book... never stops being an absorbing adventure--not until the gratifying final moments… A lovely ode to Paris, friendship, spontaneity and forks. . .both on the plate and in the road—Kirkus Reviews (January 2015 Featured Review)
•  The story is about food and obsession—but it's also about Amy's discovery of her self outside of food, love, and life's slings and arrows…an unusual blend of a fictional story, a feisty, believable protagonist's journeys, and the underlying purpose and realities of dieting and weight loss that all combine to make for a fun, vigorous read—Midwest Book Review
•  This adventure is replete with delectable food, poignancy, humor, dark secrets and portents of illumination--which is as it should be for a story set in the City of Light—Bellingham Herald
•  Discover a Paris that few casual tourists see--not the romantic Woody Allen Paris but a multinational, multilingual Paris of street hustlers, puddles of pee, diesel fumes…—Paris Voice
