Would you rather...with Isabelle Andover

Please welcome Isabelle andover, author of Cocktails at Le Carmen.

Isabelle Andover:


Originally from England, Isabelle Andover moved to France after graduating from Durham University with a degree in Modern Languages. She lives in Paris with her tabby cat Oscar, who occasionally blogs about apartment-style living in the City of Light, and who also inspired a prize-winning short story when he was a kitten.

Following several years as a media analyst, Isabelle now works at a Paris-based media company specialized in the international beauty market. In addition to fully embracing the culture of her adopted country by way of consuming plenty of French wine and cheese, Isabelle can also be found indulging in the typically British pursuits of shopping at Marks and Spencer on the Champs Elysées and drinking copious cups of Earl Grey.

Would You Rather... 
with Isabelle Andover

Chips, chocolate or cheese?

Ooh this is a tough one. All are equally good. I’d have to go with chocolate, I think.

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw?

Carrie Bradshaw  - more for her taste in shoes than her taste in men.

Wine, beer or vodka?

I’d have to say wine, since I live in France.

Camping or spa vacation?

Spa vacation all the way. Not because I can’t live without my hair dryer (I wash my hair less often than Kim Kardashian), but because you can’t beat a bit of pampering and relaxation.

Water or mountains?


Zombies or vampires?

I suppose I’d have to say vampires.

Dogs or cats?

Cats! I love cats. I have one — I’m a total cat lady. My friends think I have ‘issues’.

Coke or Pepsi?

Am I allowed to say neither?

Coffee or tea?

Tea. I really like Earl Grey, although I also drink coffee.

Dine out or take away?

Take away (pizza).

High heels, sneakers or flip flops?

Sneakers. Or ‘trainers’, since I’m British.

Physical Book or ebook?

Physical book. Although I’ve recently started reading e-books, so maybe this will change.

Paperback or Hardcover?

Paperback. They’re easier to read in the bath.

Pen or pencil?

Pen – one with coloured ink.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad?

Breaking Bad.

Drama or comedy?

Comedy, definitely.

Twilight or Hunger Games?

Hunger Games.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick?

Lipgloss, but only if you aren’t wearing your hair down, otherwise you have the dreaded 'hair stuck to your lips' problem if you venture out in high winds.

Facebook or Twiter?

Facebook. I spend hours on there. In fact, I’m multi tasking right now.

Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants?

Fly by the seat of your pants. It probably takes longer to write this way, but your novel can end up taking some unexpected twists and turns.

Cocktails at Le Carmen

When job cuts at Chloe Saddler’s London communications firm result in an unexpected transfer to Paris, she finds herself leaving behind her friends, family, and boyfriend Scott to start a new life in the City of Light. Getting to grips with La Vie Parisienne and keeping a long-distance relationship afloat is not made any easier by the culture shock. Committing the odd French faux pas and inadvertently indulging in a few too many flirtations with her very sexy (and very taken) boss, Jean-Luc, is just the start of it. Factor in her bridezilla of a sister’s wedding (the hottest event of the year in the Saddler family’s social calendar), an unexpected session of hot, naked yoga, a slightly psychotic stalker, and one incredible kiss at an infamous Montmartre nightspot, and Chloe can say au revoir to her old, safe London life and bonjour to the romance, splendour, and glamour of Paris.

A delightful debut that harks back to the early days of Chick Lit when heroines were flawed, funny, and forever battling for love and happiness. With quirky characters and classic comedic charm, Cocktails at Le Carmen is pure fun from page one.
