Spending "Midnight in Paris" with Isabelle LaFleche...plus a book giveaway

Introduction by Melissa Patafio

**Giveaway is now closed**

Isabelle Lafleche, author of J'adore New York, is joining us for the second time with her latest novel, J'adore Paris (reviewed here). If the sequel is anywhere near as good as the first (which I'm sure it is), this will be yet another read that's impossible to put down!

Isabelle worked as a corporate attorney in New York, Toronto, and Montreal before becoming a best selling author and is able to portray the corporate law life as well as intertwining fashion into her books.

It's a real treat to have Isabelle back at CLC and we look forward to seeing what she has planned for the future!

A big "thank you" to Isabelle for taking the time to answer our movie casting question and we hope you enjoy seeing her choices! She also has TWO copies of J'Adore Paris for some lucky readers in the US and/or Canada!

You can find Isabelle at her blog, Facebook and Twitter.

Cast for J'adore Paris (can also be used for J'adore New York)

CATHERINE LAMBERT
My first choice would be Marion Cotillard. Not only is she a model and spokesperson for Christian Dior, the fashion house portrayed in the novel, she’s extremely classy, gorgeous and talented (Have you seen her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose? Hel-looooo). My second choice would be Zooey Deschanel. She’s witty and really lovely; I think she would also make a great Catherine Lambert.

RIKASH
My dear friend Yanic Truesdale who played in the Gilmore Girls would make the perfect Rikash. He’s very funny, stylish and over-the-top fabulous.

ANTOINE
Jean Dujardin would be perfect. He’s got some major French charm and charisma. I could also see Ryan Reynolds in this role. Who wouldn’t?

JEFFREY
Hugh Jackman. Um, just because.

BONNIE CLARK
I would love to see Catherine Zeta-Jones play Bonnie. She’s stunning, has a commanding screen presence and knows how to play a badass. Oh yeah.

Thanks to Isabelle for sharing her dream cast for her "J'adore" series and her book with our readers.

Sounds like great reading! Would love a chance to win the book. (I'm a blog follower, also follow on facebook and twitter).

Being a Europhile, I love all movies that are taken place in Europe. 2 of my recent faves are Midnight in Paris and Letters to Juliet.

Thanks for the review.

Have you ever heard of Billy Elliot? It's about a boy from Ireland during a mining strike. His mother has died, and his Dad and brother are picketing and because of this they live very poor. Billy has no interest in the boxing lessons his Dad enrolls him in. Instead he likes the ballet. he totally straight but is interested in dancing and ballet. I just love that movie. It is my favorite for sure! I suggest everyone watch it! I wonder if there is a book too? O I would love to read it, LOL.

OK, so I know I should probably be thinking about a romantic chic flick, but honestly the first movie that came to mind was Nacho Libre (Mexico). Then the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons.
