I’m thrilled to finally be able to share Cocktails at Le Carmen with the world. I love this story and the characters so much, and I hope that readers will love them too.
When I started writing this story and posting it on Wattpad two and a half years ago, I never dreamed it would get such a positive reaction from readers, let alone reach #1 in the chicklit category with over 1.5 million reads. It’s largely thanks to reader comments that the story is what it is today, and I am so, so grateful to all of the people who took the time to read, vote and leave comments.
Celebrating with a cocktail
I will of course be celebrating publication day with a cocktail (or three, since it’s Friday), so in honour of this, I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite places to drink a cocktail in Paris, Café Mabillon. (It also makes an appearance in Cocktails at Le Carmen, so look out for it).
Located on Boulevard Saint-Germain, Café Mabillon describes itself as ‘a classic Parisian bar with a modern edge’.
The cocktails are fabulous (and half price in happy hour from 7-9pm), and the terrace is great for people watching. If you ever get a chance to go there, I recommend the Mojito in Love, a raspberry mojito that is quite possibly the best drink I’ve ever tasted.
