I have been trying for the longest to get to this author and was never successful. This book was through the local library at
Glen Waverley in Melbourne and hopefully I will be able to get another book before I leave for Sri Lanka by the end of this
This collection of short stories starts with the Paris for One which is also the longest one of the lot. Each story involves a woman
and the story is from the angle of the woman. In Paris for one Nell decides to act out of character. Planning a weekend in Paris
with her boyfriend who ditches her, she now has to salvage what was left of the weekend. How she goes from despair to euphoria and
how the weekend ultimately evolves is the story.
Crocodile Shoes how a misplaced bag and a fancy Louboutini changed someone's life was very good. What a new hair cut and a trip to
the salon could do!
The Christmas List highlights how one should celebrate not as a rote, but because we want to and with people whom we care about
otherwise it is just another day.
The entire collection some very short and some novellas, held me interested throughout.
