Rated 5 out of 5 by from An esthetic indulgence Could not put it down as the more I read, the more I was thirsty for taking in more of Paris! Stunning watercolor illustrations and unique photos with colour themes add to an overall soothing impression and are incredibly satisfying! One benefits more from this amazing experience if MacLeod's first book on Paris is read prior to this second treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful to look at and a wonderful read We're about to vacation in Paris and I've been reading everything I can get my hands on. I read Janice's first book Paris Letters and signed up for a monthly snail mail letter with her beautiful drawings and comments building my excitement. I was so happy to see this new book arrive and the daily journal format (with exact addresses for the locations she writes about) will definitely be with me on this trip. It is a truly exquisite book i will reference over and over

Très charmant." - USA Today"I thought there'd be no way she could outdo herself, but I was so wrong!... it's the type of book you beg and plead and hope will never end." - Susan Blumberg-Kason, author of Good Chinese Wife"[A] lovely portrayal of the romantic city...[Janice MacLeod] has a great eye for the city's beauty, capturing those precious moments that locals probably take for granted (and that an outsider never does)."-Cheryl Yanek, Library Journal"Part Paris guidebook/part memoir/part visual candy store.

A Paris Year is a must for anyone who loves Paris." -Lisa Anselmo, author of My (Part-Time) Paris Life: How Running Away Brought Me Home"With whimsical illustrations, captivating photographs, and a diary-format that hooks you from the start, Janice's journey of a year in Paris is downright magical. A wonderful read!" -Lindsey Tramuta, journalist and author of The New Paris"Through art, photography, and a wonderful voice that shines right off the pages, MacLeod takes the reader on a creative journey straight into the heart of the City of Lights.
