Paříž je vždycky dobrý nápad, řekla kdysi slavná herečka Audrey Hepburnová. Už proto, že Paříži se říká město lásky. Tak kam jinam zamířit, když vám láska chybí?
Ava s nejlepší kamarádkou Debs se tam vydají právě o Vánocích. Zrovna začalo sněžit, Eiffelovka zlatě září a všude voní svařené víno a nejlepší francouzské dobroty. Ale ani v tak romantické atmosféře nemohou obě přítelkyně zapomenout na své problémy: Ava se právě rozešla s proradným Leem a matka ji nenechá na pokoji, Debs má velké starosti s prací a ještě ke všemu se zdá, že matčin manžel má aférku – právě s nějakou Pařížankou!
A tak si svůj pařížský pobyt okoření dobrodružným pronásledováním nic netušící ženy, při němž není nouze o trapasy a situace. Budete se u nich skvěle bavit, zvlášť až se dozvíte, jak to vlastně se „záletníkem“ bylo.
V Paříži se ale obě přítelkyně setkají i s tajemstvím. Jeden z obou mladých mužů, s nimiž se zde seznámí, záhadný fotograf Julien, se pohybuje ve stínu smrti. Podaří se mu z něj za Aviny pomoci vymanit? A jak Ava zareguje, až se dozví jeho tajemství? Najde s ním v nejromantičtějším městě světa svou novou lásku?
Dojemný, vtipný a láskyplný příběh je tím pravým pro správnou vánoční atmosféru.

Capable, confident and career-driven, Ellen had her dream job and a marriage proposal from boyfriend Ross. Life was good, her future set. Until it wasn’t and everything fell apart…
Whisked off to the beautiful island of Corfu to plan her sister Lacey’s big, fat, Greek wedding, Ellen is hoping some time out will help clear her head and heal her heart. But letting go of her past is not going to be easy.
With Lacey in full on Bridezilla mode, Ellen is soon distracted from her own problems. And when the all-inclusive treats on offer at hotel Blue Vue include one gorgeous, brooding Adonis – Yan – Ellen finds him difficult to resist.
But Ellen isn’t looking for love or lust, or anything involving too much ouzo…or is she?

Sunshine, soft white sand and a sizzling hot millionaire – you don’t get trouble in paradise, right?
Imogen Charlton is sorted. Dead-beat husband? History. Dream job? Application sent. But then her impulsive brother, Harry, spends every last penny on a Greek restaurant in Corfu, and is determined to run it himself. It’s up to Imogen to bring him to his senses.
When sexy millionaire Panos Dimitriou offers to buy back his family taverna, Imogen wonders if all her prayers have been answered (and all her fantasies about to come true). But Harry won’t budge, and his enthusiasm is infectious.
Bright pink bougainvillea tumbling over whitewashed walls, endless blue skies, the sparkling Mediterranean; it’s hard not to fall for Corfu. And that’s not all Imogen is falling for…
