A good review for ONLY IN PARIS from Janine Marsh at weloveparis.com. She writes that "the quirky, the strange, the surprising and the downright odd are all here and it makes for utterly riveting reading". The book has also inspired Janine to visit the Musée Marmottan, a private museum tucked away in the 16th Arrondissement, which boasts the world's best collection of works by Monet.
