In this fresh and humorous tale, 29-year-old Claire agrees to supervise the renovation of the Paris apartment her parents have inherited. Ignoring her romantic surroundings, Claire is all business and in a hurry to return to her job, home, and an "almost dating" relationship with Brian, an associate pastor.
When Adrien, a handsome and flirtatious friend of the family, agrees to help Claire, his spontaneity and joie de vie drives her crazy. But in time, even Claire cannot resist the City of Lights' offerings, including the Rodin museum where the sculpture The Kiss raises the questions... who will be the love of her life? And will she ever learn to enjoy the life God has placed right in front of her?
I loved, loved, loved this book! I loved it enough to stay up until 2:30 am to finish reading it because I just couldn't stand to put it down without knowing if, how, or when Claire and Adrien would kiss.
I loved the background that Claire and Adrien had as well as the new realizations of each other after being apart for 10 years.
I loved the descriptions of Paris and the museums and artwork. Especially the decription and storyline of "The Kiss".
This book brought back all the longings, frustrations and insecurities of falling in love and waiting for that first kiss. The kind that leaves you breathless.
This was my first time reading Siri L. Mitchell but I have a few other of her books on my to-be-read pile that are moving toward the front after reading "Kissing Adrien".
So romantic... Sigh...
