  1. What a fantastic book cover ! I often go shopping for books by browsing through covers and book titles. Then I read the blurb on the back. Then I buy the book. Congratulations !

    • Thank you so much! I am the same way 🙂 Ever since I was a kid. I can’t wait to read the book. My jaw dropped when I saw who the author was, I am a huge fan.

  2. WAIT. How did I miss that??? Congratulations Rebecca!! So so very excited for you-I’m going to order my copy right now!

    • Hi! You didn’t miss anything. Thank you! I kept it top secret. I cannot wait to hold my own copy and read the story. I am truly honored!

  3. I ordered that sweater! I hope it fits. Can’t wait to get it. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend! XOXO

    • Thank you! Keep me posted if you like the sweater. I hope you had a lovely weekend too! xo

  4. Wow! Where to begin with this list! First, and foremost, the most heartfelt congratulations on the book cover. Not just ANY book cover, but a Tatiana de Rosnay book cover! Way to go, Rebecca. Secondly, while I am not romantically linked at this moment, The Most Romantic Places in the 2nd is just filled with places that I will hit later this year no matter if I’m still not coupled. I have no qualms with dining solo even in the most romantic setting. I will let the ambience, smells, sights and sounds romance me all evening long! Who knows, I may even flirt with the waiters. Thirdly, Barbara Corcoran’s air travel tips are just too good! Finally, Corey Frye’s article on why American’s are still so infatuated with Paris made me sigh and swoon. I’m a huge French Frye in Paris fan and this article just reminds me why. Great list, Rebecca! Merci beaucoup.

    -Your superfan, Missy Lamb.

    • Hi Missy,

      Thank you! I am so excited for this book and I was truly honored they chose one of my photos. I am sure it will be a book club book later this year. Solo travel is such a wonderful experience. You learn so much about yourself and you get to do exactly what you want to do. You never know, you might end up meeting someone. Barbara Corcoran is awesome. I love that she still sits in coach! Are you doing a walk with Corey?
