Part 3 of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

Ciara would rather be anywhere else in the world than Paris. All the gooey eyed couples and handholding are making her miserable.

But Elle doesn’t have time for moping – not when she’s got the three of them on the guest list of an exclusive club. So Ciara tries her best to enjoy the free champagne, the loft party looking over the Seine and a little harmless sexting – until they realize they’ve stumbled into a nightmare none of them were prepared for.

The ideal summer treat for those relaxing days soaking up the sun!

Since our British summer seems to have disappeared for good, I can think of no better way to try and regain a little bit of it by following Ciara, Elle and Gem on their summer road trip. After the brilliant Trouble in Tinseltown and Misbehaving in Miami, book three takes us to Paris. If it was possible to give Point Us to Paris more than a five star rating, I would, because it’s definitely my favourite of the three so far.

Ciara is not excited about being in the city of romance at all, and cracks begin to show in Paris which suggests the girls’ holiday isn’t all going to be fun and games. I loved seeing Aimee explore Ciara’s more vulnerable side – from her doubts about what she wants to do with her life to her feelings towards the expensive lifestyle Elle and Gem see as normal. Ciara’s character development gets stronger and stronger as this series goes on and I find myself connecting with her a lot more in Point Us to Paris.

Ciara isn’t the only character whose vulnerable side is shown here as we see a different side to Elle too. I liked seeing more of her distant relationship with her cousin Zack and how we know there’s just so much more to come from it. I love Zack’s character and how capable he is of being able to shake things up in this series. His involvement is again my favourite part of the book.

As Ciara, Elle and Gem fall into some more trouble in Paris, this book does a great job at teasing and hinting at things to come in Greece and further ahead. The series is really picking up momentum now and there’s one secret in particular I can’t wait to discover. Point Us to Paris had the perfect balance of new in twists in the road trip to building up for what’s ahead and it was a fantastic drama-filled read. I can’t recommend Aimee Duffy’s Summer Flings series enough.
