Traveling foodies of the world, rejoice--Thomas provides the sweet scoop on Paris and New York in this mouth-watering memoir. While an associate creative director at ad agency Ogilvy & Mather, Thomas was offered a position as copywriter on the Louis Vuitton account in Paris. So she left her life in New York--where an insatiable sweet tooth had made her a veritable expert on the city's bakeries and chocolatiers--to live in the foodie mecca of the Second Arrondissement and work in a gorgeous building on the Champs-Élysées. During her quest to find the best breads, desserts, and cheeses at the myriad pâtisseries, boulangeries, and bistros, Thomas revels in the historic and cultural joys of Paris--the parks, markets, and of course the gorgeous Canal Saint-Martin. Thankfully, her vivid descriptions of baguettes, macaroons, and baba au rhum do more than merely tempt--supplemented with an extensive list of Thomas' favorite bakeries in Paris and New York, readers can get their own taste of two cities, though Thomas' is the tale to beat. --Publisher Weekly Feb 2012
Two cities have long held a special allure for me: Paris and New York. For decades, I figured I would find a way to live in both. These dreams haven t materialized, but I have been able to savor a soupcon of them vicariously through Amy Thomas s new memoir, Paris, My Sweet. When a job at Louis Vuitton unexpectedly falls into her lap, Thomas leaves New York to settle in Paris. The ensuing two years of adventures some sweet and some bittersweet are layered with memories of New York life in this delicious account. A savvy sweetaholic, Thomas ices this literary gateau with a list of more than 100 bite-worthy bakeries in her two adopted homes. --National Geographic Traveler Feb 2012
Like a tasty Parisian bonbon, this book is filled with sweet surprises. --David Lebovitz, New York Times bestselling author of The Sweet Life in Paris
Amy Thomas seduces us in the same manner than Paris seduced her - one exquisite morsel at a time. --Nicole Robertson, author of Paris in Color
Présentation de l'éditeur
"From the New York cupcake wars to the perfect Parisian macaron, Thomas's passion is palpable, her sweet tooth, unstoppable."--Elizabeth Bard, bestselling author of Lunch in Paris
Forever a girl obsessed with all things French, sweet freak Amy Thomas landed a gig as rich as the purest dark chocolate: leave Manhattan for Paris to write ad copy for Louis Vuitton. Working on the Champs-elysees, strolling the charming streets, and exploring the best patisseries and boulangeries, Amy marveled at the magnificence of the City of Light.
But does falling in love with one city mean turning your back on another? As much as Amy adored Paris, there was part of her that felt like a humble chocolate chip cookie in a sea of pristine macarons. PARIS, MY SWEET explores how the search for happiness can be as fleeting as a salted caramel souffle's rise, as intensely satisfying as molten chocolate cake, and about how the life you're meant to live doesn't always taste like the one you envisioned.
Part love letter to Paris, part love letter to New York, and total devotion to all things sweet, PARIS, MY SWEET is a treasure map for anyone with a hunger for life.

While this book is not Jane Austen, it is still a delightful book. I found it to be a very easy and breazy read. It was short and SWEET(pun intended). This book is filled with detailed descriptions of desserts and the stores they came from. I found myself going online to look up many of the places and desserts while reading Paris My Sweet. I also started craving many of the sweets. I have taken cooking lessons in New York and loved it! Now I would love to take cooking classes in Paris too.
Amy Thomas loves New York City as much as she does Paris. I love New York City too. I do not live there anymore, but I totally understand how Amy feels about New York. I think it is one of the greatest cultural centers in America. There is always something going on, things to do, places to go and great places to eat. I appreciate the comparisions of the two cities in the book. I appreciate Amy Thomas's honesty about the people in France and how she felt very lonely at times because of it. It is not something that I haven't heard before. Never the less Amy Thomas was still able to enjoy the country she fell in love with as a college student. Miss Thomas made me want to get on a plane straight away and head for France.
One of the reasons I enjoyed Paris My Sweet is because Amy Thomas did something that I have dreamed about doing since I was a teenager. I admire any woman who moves to another country by herself leaving her family and friends behind. It can be scary, but mostly I see it as a wonderful adventure. I did not think the author should have been upset because her friends were getting married and having babies. Moving to France to live and work is equally exciting. Not to mention all the trips you can make to other Eurpoean countries while you are living in France. I would be happy about my friends getting married and having children, and even happier about me living in France. And if things did not turn out as expected in France I would have explored another country over there to move to. Maybe Miss Thomas would have found love and romance in England? Spain? Switzerland? Italy?
I would love to get an update on Amy Thomas now. Does she have a boyfriend now? Would she move to Paris for good?
It was a pleasure for me to review this book on my blog. The only books that I reveiw on my blog are the ones I like.
Amy Thomas, thank you very much for writing this book. I appreciate it even if some people didn't. I think a lot of people do appreciate it as much as I do. Please give us an update on how your life is going now Miss Thomas.
