Hidden in Paris

When I first sketched this painting... I thought I would use it to talk about Book Clubs... but after reading Hidden in Paris by Corine Gantz... I thought it would be PARFAIT for the three women in the book... 

Soooo when it came to colour... I thought the women should all be in shades of PINK to show they are similar... different book subjects to show they're differences ... and of course soooo EVERYONE would know the setting... the Eiffel Tower out the window!

NOW... YOU ask... what is Hidden in Paris about...

Three women running away from their lives become unlikely friends in a beautiful house in the heart of Paris. Lost in France, a country she mistrusts, among French people she hardly understands, Annie has trouble venturing away from home since the death of her husband. And since home happens to be a small jewel of a house nestled in the heart of Paris, why would she ever want to? But when bankruptcy threatens her beloved house, her one anchor in life, Annie has no choice but to find renters, and quick. Leave it to someone socially phobic to phrase a want ad in all the wrong ways. With shimmering promises of ‘Starting over in Paris’ –– a concept she has no intention of applying to her own life––Annie attracts tenants with the kind of baggage that doesn’t fit in suitcases. A long-legged, cool-headed ex model (everything Annie is not) on the run from her abusive husband, a frail young woman harboring a possible death wish, a mysterious French artist, and an infuriating blue-blooded French man soon threaten Annie’s way of life in ways she never anticipated. But when Annie finds herself reluctantly yet actively engaged in the rescue of her tenants, she discovers that she might just save herself in the process. (synopsis via HERE)
Sound interesting?  I LOVED it!!!
Andddddddddd... YOU could WIN this book... 
visit Reading is Fashionable to meet the author and leave a comment to WIN!
 Alsooooooooo... be sure visit Beverly and the PINK Saturday participants
and don't forget PINKALICIOUS too!

Bon Weekend...
