A Paris Odyssey

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B0C1KM1B5R&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=GB&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=jjbarnes 21&language=en GBir?t=jjbarnes 21&language=en GB&l=li3&o=2&a=B0C1KM1B5RA Paris Odyssey, this third volume in Axel Forrester’s Odyssey series will be relished like a scrumptiously decadant French pastry, by enthusiasts of this American author living in the UK, and her Protagonist, Grant Decker.

Grant, an American photographer, is on assignment in Paris. He realizes how unprepared he is to navigate this unfamiliar world, where the language is both vaguely familiar and perplexing when he gets to the Gare du Nord train station. Riding the metro across the city, with the intention of learning his way around, Grant discovers a different Paris when he makes new friends among street performers. He is able to sharpen his eye and open his heart to the numerous love stories that weave through “the city of light” thanks to these eccentric characters.

This charming, funny, and touching novella, which has already won a Gold Award of Achievement from the International Review of Books, finds the author’s adventurous photographer, whose previous Odyssey adventures have taken him to Cornwall and China, making unexpected friends and experiencing a Paris that most tourists never get to see.

This latest adventure will also stoke daydreams of being immersed in the beauty, romance, and quirkiness of the French capital, which the Odyssey series provides as a wonderful break from the humdrum of everyday life. A Paris Odyssey is a captivating tale of adventure, friendship, and love that is funny, touching, and magical.
