'A clever, funny novel . . . a masterpiece of Parisian perfection' Duchess of Cornwall 'The very quintessence of French romance' The Times Bookseller Laurent Letellier comes across an abandoned handbag on a Parisian street, and feels impelled to return it to its owner. The bag contains no money, phone or contact information. But a small red notebook with handwritten thoughts and jottings reveals a person that Laurent would very much like to meet. Without even a name to go on, and only a few of her possessions to help him, how is he to find one woman in a city of millions?

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In equal parts an offbeat romance, detective story and a clarion call for metropolitans to look after their neighbours. . . . Reading The Red Notebook is a little like finding a gem among the bric-a-brac in a local brocante' The Telegraph 'Resist this novel if you can; it's the very quintessence of French romance' The Times 'Definitely a heartwarming tale' San Diego Book Review 'Soaked in Parisian atmosphere, this lovely, clever, funny novel will have you rushing to the Eurostar post-haste. . . . A gem' Daily Mail 'This tender and charming romance, written with characteristic Gallic flair, is part mystery and part love story. Flawlessly written, it does everything just right and, at the end, leaves a smile of satisfaction' Foreword Reviews 'An instant, flawless masterpiece of Parisian perfection' The Bookbag 'Lovely, clever, funny and soaked in fabulous Parisian atmosphere, this is the perfect French holiday read' Daily Mail 'An endearing love story written in beautifully poetic prose. It is an enthralling mystery about chasing the unknown, the nostalgia for what could have been, and most importantly, the persistence of curiosity' San Francisco Book Review 'A warm whimsical romantic cozy in which the location and the support cast bring plausibility to Laurent's quest that will remind the audience of the movie Serendipity' Midwest Book Review 'With elements of mystery, romance, and drama coupled with the effervescence and charm of Amelie, The Red Notebook is a perfectly delightful and bubbly tale' Typographical Era 'This is a novel you read with a smile on your face and a thirst to find out how it ends' Elle
