Publisher's Summary

French women didn't invent happiness. But they know a thing or two about joie de vivre - being alive to each delicious moment.

As a young girl, Jamie Cat Callan was fascinated by her French grandmother. Though she had little money, Jamie's grand-mère ate well, dressed well, and took joy in simple, everyday pleasures. As Jamie journeyed through France as an adult, she gained more insight into the differences between French and American women. French women - whether doctors, shop owners, or housewives - don't worry about being thin enough, young enough, or accomplished enough. They age gracefully and celebrate their bodies. They know how to balance their lives - to love food without overeating, to work hard but not too much, to relish friends and family, and still make time for themselves. Now Jamie draws on everything French women have taught her and shows you how to:

  • Buy and consume less - and enjoy more
  • Look like a million Euros on a few francs
  • Find time to be alone
  • Flirt la française
  • Rediscover your own mystery

Perfection isn't attainable, but happiness always is. And this uplifting, revelatory book shows every woman how to embrace it - and savor it.

Very enjoyable

I quite enjoyed this. And the narrator was delightful - I felt like I was being read to by Mrs. Maisel. It was the perfect sunny antidote for my dreary desk job.

Such a Delightful book!!!!

Madame Jamie Cat Callan is such a wonderful story teller and writer. I was a having second thoughts of buying this book.. because i bought several francophile books that it seemed to me saying same things that i already know from other books or bloggers.
This book did not disappoint me ,it such a delight, funny and i can relate to it. Madame Callan imparted her wisdom through her experiences and her friends experiences as she discovered Joie de Vivre. I salute and adored her! Ill buy all her books!! I'm now a fan! LOL BOnjour Happiness!

Disappointing

Would you try another book from Jamie Cat Callan and/or Tavia Gilbert?

No, there was no depth. Just shallow short and not relevant references of random people

Would you ever listen to anything by Jamie Cat Callan again?

No

What character would you cut from Bonjour, Happiness!?

Too many not relevant people

Any additional comments?

If you are a Francophile, this is a must read! I enjoyed this book a lot! And I will be reading the rest of her books indeed.
