 "In Paris, it's not just hotels touting treatments. There are spas and beauty salons crowding every street. If you would like to learn more about them, you need to consult Pampered In Paris: A Guide To The Best Spas, Salons And Beauty Boutiques. It provides an arrondissement-by-arrondissement guide to who offers what and where." --The Mail on Sunday (London)"Author Kim Horton Levesque researched more than 50 establishments whose makeup, perfume and skin treatments are dear to the heart of fashionable Parisian women. Naturally, such experiences can be intimidating -- think going to the fragrances counter at your local upscale department store and multiply by 100 -- so Levesque offers advice on spa etiquette. She also provides a glossary of useful terms so travelers will know the French for shimmer or anti-aging facial." - Pittsburgh Tribune Review "For a tantalizing overview of the Paris Spa experience, pick up a copy of Kim Horton Levesque's  Pampered in Paris: A Guide to the best Spas, Salons and Beauty Boutiques.
