A few years ago and totally by chance I decided to give Sarah Jio a try and I fell in love. There’s something special about the way she narrates her stories that I just can’t look away from. ALL THE FLOWERS IN PARIS swept me off my feet and had my attention from the very first page. I wanted to know more, uncover our characters secrets and see what the future held for them. I couldn’t put it down!
We follow two women. A widow and a mother in Nazi occupied Paris. Her father owns a flower shop and although not widely known, is part Jewish. W follow Celine as she stuggles seeing the world she’s known and loved fall apart around them and the reality of their situation forces them to dig for a strength she didn’t know she had. And we also have Caroline, in modern day Paris, who finds herself without memories of who she is or her past and is trying to piece that past back together.
Connected by the magical streets of Paris, taking this journey with both of them felt like a rollercoaster of emotions. Oddly enough, I didn’t want it to stop. The writing is beautiful, the characters are compelling. I highly recommend this is you are in the mood for a great historical fiction novel this summer.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
