    Bill calls from China informing Lana their trip is off. Outraged, Lara decides to go to France without Bill. To her own amazement, she invites the carpenter working on her deck to join her. Even more amazing the thirtyish Tom Holland accepts because he finds Lara very attractive. Overseas, the couple bickers, shares madcap adventures, and enjoys each other company until love intercedes and decisions must be made.

    THE LAST TIME I SAW PARIS is a fun to read lighthearted romantic romp that will leave the audience in stitches of laughter as they observe the loving duo dives head first from one crazy incident to another. Elizabeth Adler's tale has a serious undertone as the heroine must face reality and see her husband for what he is and not how she wants him to be. Romance lovers will thoroughly enjoy this first class ride into true love.
