Poppy does Paris - Nicola Doherty

Poppy Does Paris (Girls On Tour BOOK 1)Poppy Does Paris by Nicola Doherty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first instalment in this hilarious, romantic and unputdownable five-part series. Perfect for fans of Lindsey Kelk's I Heart... novels.

Paris. City of love, city of romance. The last place you want to go to on a work trip when you're in the middle of an epic dry spell. But that's where Poppy is headed, along with her colleague Charlie, who's shallow and annoying but very, very good-looking. During a white-wine-fuelled session with her friend Alice, Poppy concocts the perfect plan: work by day, and have some no-strings fun with Charlie by night. Of course, it might prove a little more complicated than that, but it's nothing Poppy can't handle - or is it?

Girls on Tour is an irresistible series of interlinked stories about four friends, ordinary girls who have extraordinary fun in faraway places. Expect the unexpected, the utterly hilarious and unforgettable, on this rollercoaster ride of love, laughs, surprises and sparks. You have a VIP pass to join each girl's adventure, so pack your bags and buckle your seatbelts, because just about anything is possible...

I fist discovered Nicola Doherty last year when I read her novel, If I could turn back time. I absolutely loved this and when I found Poppy does Paris was also written by her, I jumped at the chance to read it.

This is a series of short stories which feature interlocking characters. Each story centres round a different character, these are all set around the world. personally I love stories that are set abroad as I have the travel bug and when I can't afford to be abroad I need to read about it!

Poppy does Paris is about Poppy, she works in publishing and she is sent to Paris to meet a famous author and hopefully clinch the deal for him to sign up to use her company. Poppy is sent along with a younger, male colleague. Poppy goes along with the intention to mix business with pleasure, when it comes to her colleague Charlie. unfortunately for Poppy, things don't quite go as she expects.

for a novella, it is a quick read, personally I thought it was long enough. I do enjoy reading novellas in between longer novels. This being the first in a series is also a great thing.

I enjoyed the story, however I was not blown away. personally I didn't think it was quite up the same standard as Doherty' s full length novels, saying that, I will be reading then others in this series.

I would like to thank the publisher for sending me this copy in exchange for an honest review.


  1. This sounds quite good. You're always so brilliant at writing reviews!
