ABOUT THE BOOK: July 15, 2013
Event planner Samantha Hunter is prepared for a few challenges when escorting a group of good ole boy beer distributors to Paris, the city of haute cuisine and fine wines. However, she doesn’t foresee being passed up for a promotion because she is too professional and doesn’t knock back beers with her clients.
Her focus soon switches from landing the well-deserved promotion to finding her free-spirited sister, who lives in Paris and has disappeared, leaving behind family secrets to be uncovered. A sexy puppeteer helps Samantha search for clues to her sister’s whereabouts and teaches her to embrace her inner child. And a funeral-crashing psychic demonstrates the importance of living life to the fullest. It takes Samantha’s life spiraling out of control for her to finally get a life.
REVIEW: KISSING MY OLD LIFE AU REVOIR is a contemporary storyline focusing on event planner Samantha Hunter as she encounters a new life rich in French culture, family betrayal and the possibility of a future with no job.
In France, on business, Samantha will discover that family secrets and hidden betrayal run deep. Her sister’s lifestyle and the people she meets force Samantha to make decisions that will affect her job, her personal life and the future. And the future involves a major change in direction for everyone involved. When Sam meets her sister’s neighbor Luc, her imagination and fantasies will soon become her new reality and possibly her future.
Samantha is a woman who had to grow up quickly when her father abandoned the family and was never heard from again. Her mother’s emotional and psychological disorders forced Samantha into the role of mother to her younger sister and has shaped her personality and focus on all things personal and business. The glass ceiling and work place double standard are an eye opening slap in the face, when Samantha learns that the promotion she was hoping for will be given to someone who can ‘party with the big boys’,
KISSING MY OLD LIFE AU REVOIR is a fast paced, detailed storyline that reveals the many different levels of family dysfunction and work place discrimination. Secrets from the past are revealed that open old wounds and cut deeply when Samantha learns the truth behind her sister’s life in Paris and the reasons she left home. But it will be Samantha who once again, must pick up the pieces and put everything and everyone back together.
Eliza pulls the reader into a storyline fraught with heartbreaking betrayal, sorrow and the knowledge that perhaps the only one you can trust is the person in the mirror.
