Que serais-je sans toi? de Guillaume Musso
From the rooftops of Paris to sunny San Francisco
A story of first love that lights up a whole life
A masterful and deeply moving conclusion.
Gabrielle has two men in her life.
One is her father, the other her first love.
One is a great cop, the other a famous thief.
They are long gone, having left an empty space in her heart.
On the same day, at the same time, they reappear, turning her life upside down. They know each other, and hate each other, and are engaged in a chase to the death.
Un havre de paix by Nicholas Sparks
When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.
