Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir
By: Eliza Watson
Event planner Samantha Hunter is prepared for a few challenges when escorting a group of good ole boy beer distributors to Paris, the city of haute cuisine and fine wines. However, she doesn’t foresee being passed up for a promotion because she is too professional and doesn’t knock back beers with her clients. Her focus soon switches from landing the well-deserved promotion to finding her free-spirited sister, who lives in Paris and has disappeared, leaving behind family secrets to be uncovered. A sexy puppeteer helps Samantha search for clues to her sister’s whereabouts and teaches her to embrace her inner child. And a funeral-crashing psychic demonstrates the importance of living life to the fullest. It takes Samantha’s life spiraling out of control for her to finally get a life.

I enjoyed Kissing My Old Life Au Revoir, although it was a bit of a slow start for me. The quirky characters engaged me, and yet their real-life problems drew me further and further into the story.
There were enough questions and suspense to keep me anticipating the next chapter, and, at the end, I was racing through the book to find out what happens.
I happen to love Paris, and the author’s descriptions brought me the atmosphere and memories that a good book can do. Eliza Watson did a good job evoking the lifestyle that contrasted with the heroine’s current corporately driven non-life.
I recommend this book as a great summer read!
Eliza’s first attempt at creative writing was in fourth grade. She and her friends were huge Charlie’s Angels fans and she would sit in her bedroom at night writing scripts for them to act out at recess the following day. She was Kelly Garrett. The journey from fourth grade script writer to published author wasn’t an easy one, but it was always an adventure and the final destination was well worth it.
When she’s not traveling for her job as an event planner, or tracing her ancestry roots through Ireland, she’s at home in Wisconsin working on her next novel, bouncing ideas off her husband Mark, and her cats Quigley and Frankie.
