book giveaway!

Author: angiem, 05 22nd, 2011

I first came across Corine’s blog about two years ago. I was smitten from the start with her colorful garden, her fearless decorating style, and her refreshing sense of humor. I remember one night in those early days of having discovered her, when I couldn’t sleep, so I spent about two hours just reading her previous posts, fascinated by this French woman who could say so much and so well, in just a few words.

In the time since, I have discovered that Corine and I have several things in common, besides blogging and telling stories: we both have sisters, we love to eat and are great at it, and we speak English with an accent. When I found out that Corine’s first book came out I immediately bought it, and read it all the day it arrived.

I love the story. It is a perfect read for the summer.  Hidden in Paris, is about three American women in the heart of Paris, each wishing to escape her own problems, living together in a beautiful house, and eating delicious French food. Because Corine is French and has lived in America for quite a long time now, she’s tackled both the French and the American cultures so well. And because I love the story so, I am offering a giveaway of the book. Any comment from now until Wednesday midnight (Pacific Standard Time) will be entered.

Visit Barnes & Nobles online,, and Goodreads, to purchase your own copy of Hidden in Paris.

    I love stories like this! One of my favorites about women staying together for a time is Enchanted April. I actually just found out that the film was based on a book so I’ve added that to my wishlist. I know I will enjoy Hidden in Paris. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I love her blog so so so much.

    Story: I am a college student in Buffalo, New York and I’m getting my first place in July. Lucky me, my grandmother wants to redecorate, and as a apartment warming present, has gifted me her favorite blue velvet couch. I like anime and crazy hair dye, what the heck am I going to do with a blue velvet couch? How do I make little red tulips fun and funky and cute like me?!

    And Corrine told me.

    I’m making a floor cloth to match the floor in the picture. (=

    I have spent most of the day, quietly drowning in Corine’s photos on her Blog. I have been truly enrapt and transported from my wintry room.
    Now, I have seen that she has this blissful book out, so I am hoping perhaps I might be in with a chance to be transported to Paris by these beautiful photographs. True Art. Thank you.
