Nicole-Marie Handy has loved all things French since she was a child. After the death of her best friend, determined to get out of her rut, she goes to Paris, leaving behind a marriage proposal. While there, Nicole chances upon an old photo of her father-lovingly inscribed, in his hand, to a woman Nicole has never heard of. What starts as a vacation quickly becomes an investigation into his relationship to this mystery woman.
Moving back and forth in time between the sparkling Paris of today and the jazz-fueled city filled with expatriates in the 1950s, Passing Love is the story of two women dealing with lost love, secrets, and betrayal...and how the City of Light may hold all of the answers.

My Review:  
I will start with the cover this time. "I LOVED IT"! Why you ask, well I had been reading a lot of kindle books at the time I got this book. So to just have an actual book in my hands was awesome. Not to say I didn't have other actual books, because I did. This cover drew me a picture of possibilities of love, romance, of chances of going to distant places. I loved the wording, the style, and placement. There is a gentleness about the whole picture. 

Passing Love by author Jacqueline E. Luckett pulled me in to the pages fairly easy. Not a fast pace story line but smooth writing style for the most part. Just the pace that keeps you reading.   

The main character was well thought out and placed neatly into the plot. And as for the secondary characters you may ask. Well for the most part they were good but for a few places that seemed to kinda drag. 

Over all I did enjoy this read and for that reason and the reasons above I will be giving this book my Breath Of Life Rating of:

 Four Clock Rating!! 

Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
