A Chic Provence Giveaway! Hidden in Paris


The brilliant Corine at Hidden in France has published her first book, Hidden in Paris,and I loved reading it! I already miss the characters... Annie, Lola, Althea, Lucas... and find myself wondering what they are up to now!

Corine is French living in Los Angeles, and her book is written with lots of little insights into the French way of thinking. I find her use of the English language completely charming and spot on for a native French speaker (and I know because I'm married to one!). I can already see the film, {Renee Zellwieger (Annie), Uma Thurman (Lola), Hilary Swank (Althea)}, and a narrator speaking English with that French accent and way of expressing things, and I can't wait to see it!

If you have been to Paris you will recognize the places and the paces of life described here, and it will make you want to head over there and take up residence off Avenue Hoch near Parc Monceau, and shop the daily produce markets on Rue Poncelet. Sigh!

You can win an autographed copy of Hidden in France here, enter below now!
