Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir Blog Tour- Review & Giveaway

Hi Everyone! Today I have a stop on the Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir blog tour. I have a review and giveaway for you all.


Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir
By: Eliza Watson

Blurb
Event planner Samantha Hunter is prepared for a few challenges when escorting a group of good ole boy beer distributors to Paris, the city of haute cuisine and fine wines. However, she doesn’t foresee being passed up for a promotion because she is too professional and doesn’t knock back beers with her clients. Her focus soon switches from landing the well-deserved promotion to finding her free-spirited sister, who lives in Paris and has disappeared, leaving behind family secrets to be uncovered. A sexy puppeteer helps Samantha search for clues to her sister’s whereabouts and teaches her to embrace her inner child. And a funeral-crashing psychic demonstrates the importance of living life to the fullest. It takes Samantha’s life spiraling out of control for her to finally get a life.

My Review
Samantha works hard at her job. She puts in more hours than most people do and does all the work behind the scenes that make up the little things most people don't think of. When in Paris for work instead of getting the promotion she was expecting she finds she has been passed up for another person. While in Paris she also tries to talk her sister into coming back home with her. Her sister has many secrets she has kept hidden from her family. She ups and leaves Samantha with a mess and few clues on how to find her and how to unravel the mess she left behind. Luc her sister's neighbor helps her look and figure out what to do next. He has a few secrets of his own that may hurt Samantha as she grows closer to him.

Samantha gets her whole life changed in a few days and takes it pretty well. When others would fall apart she tries to hold it together with a few breakdowns. I really enjoyed reading about her as she is a smart woman, who sometimes takes on more than she should. She had to grow up young to help with her sister. Luc is sexy Frenchman who a person can't help be drawn to. He has a few ghost of his own he needs to take care of and he has to figure out what he wants to do from now on. He doesn't like to be a puppet for anyone that is for sure. Libby Samantha' s sister is kind of flakey at times and has many secrets. A few times I wanted to smack her and say quit being stupid.

I loved this book and enjoyed following Samantha on her journey of discovering just what she really wants, how she goes about getting it and discovering many secrets. There is a mystery you get to follow along with that has to do with changing a few peoples lives. You get transported to Paris as the author does a great job describing the places, people and so much more. Like the food my mouth watered just reading about some of the food. This book has a few twist coming I didn't see coming and I enjoyed that. You also can get a few chuckles one in particular about a dog's name. I love how Samantha has friends try and help her out using a means most use everyday. I could keep going on about this book but I will just say it was a pleasure to read and I look forward to reading more books from this author.

5 out of 5 Stars


Author Info
Eliza’s first attempt at creative writing was in fourth grade. She and her friends were huge Charlie's Angels fans and she would sit in her bedroom at night writing scripts for them to act out at recess the following day. She was Kelly Garrett. The journey from fourth grade script writer to published author wasn't an easy one, but it was always an adventure and the final destination was well worth it.

When she’s not traveling for her job as an event planner, or tracing her ancestry roots through Ireland, she’s at home in Wisconsin working on her next novel, bouncing ideas off her husband Mark, and her cats Quigley and Frankie.
