OOSA Online Gives 5 Stars to Encounters in Paris

“The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.” – Flora Whittemore

When you think of Paris, one of things that might cross your mind is romance, but the last thing Ellery Roulet is feeling is romantic. Ellery never imagined reading her mail would send her life in a downward spiral, but soon she realizes it was already headed that way.

“Encounters in Paris” is described as a collection of short stories, but I would describe it as chapters in Ellery Roulet’s life. Every short story involves Ellery coming to the realization of a situation in her life, and also understanding that life’s solutions aren’t so black and white. The author does an excellent job of engrossing readers in the language, atmosphere, and culture of Paris, also addressing topics such as infidelity, trust, and regret.

Hopefully the author will continue Ellery’s story, because I believe there is so much more waiting in the wings for the main character.
