This book review is for the novel "Rendezvous" by Melody Carlson. It is the third book in the 'On The Runway' series. I have previously read and reviewed the first two books, Premiere and Catwalk and I always eagerly dive into the next book when I get it. I have truly been loving this series!
First off I have to say that I absolutely love the title of the book! Whenever I read it, I hear this deliciously sounding french accented word. Brings to mind the warm smell of fresh baked scones and french roast coffee..a scarf about the neck as one delights in these things at a sidewalk cafe and gazes at the beautiful Eiffel Tower. Before you even crack the book open you are flooded with delightful images just from the title alone.
I don't know about you but it cranks my Parisian longings up a notch! ;o)
In these book we get to follow the Forrester sisters to Paris to visit such designers as Hermes and Christian Dior etc... to film for their TV show. Just reading all the labels is bringing to mind beautiful shoes and handbags! Read on to watch both sisters grow in the way they communicate with each other as well as different people they deal with. They both still have a lot of growing up to do but international travel and fame is helping them do it.
Seeing Erin come into her own as a beautiful young woman is nice. She isn't just falling into Paige's shadow as much and she is learning to stand up for herself sometimes. And Paige is learning to slow down, consider, and not throw temper tantrums.
Throw in a handsome French guy as well as a few surprise visitors from back home and well....you'll have to read to see! I know, I know, but I can't give it all away right!?!
I like the way that Melody tackles some tough issues without being to in your face about it. I am highly anticipating reading the fourth book, "Spotlight". Look for my upcoming review on it as well!
Have a great weekend! Any interesting plans?
