Fresh out of college and recently dumped by his long-time girlfriend, shy and bookish Jefferson Blythe is touring Europe using an inherited vintage copy of Esquire Magazine’s Europe in Style.

Jefferson Blythe, Esquire is about old maps, new adventures, getting lost, getting found, getting drunk, and being mistaken for an international criminal. In other words, normal summer vacation when you’re in your twenties.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. (Lao-Tzu)

I think, I’ve just read my favorite book by Josh Lanyon.
Read LITERALLY in one sitting. LOVE EVERY single page.

I’m not a big fan of long and detailed blurbs. Maybe it is the reason, why I seldom read them and it is enough for me just to know the genre. But this blurb…*sigh*. Take one minute of your time and just read it:

Good, right? EXACTLY what this book is about and how it made me feel!

Written/told in a best Woody Allen manner, it could be a perfect screenplay for a future Woody Allen’s movie. Please, please, please, can someone with connections in the movie business ask him to read it?

This book has EVERYTHING that Josh Lanyon are well-known for and what makes this author so popular:

    *** an engaging plot

    *** a thrilling mystery(this time with a comedy touch, and I LOVE IT!)

    *** delightful humor. I LAUGHED a LOT!

    *** It is sooooo romantic! Oh God, I love these two guys. I just can’t decide which one I love me.

    *** CHEMISTRY between the MCs, SEXUAL tension!

    *** London, Paris, Rom, Florence. The detailed descriptions, the atmosphere of these amazing cities. You were there? You love them? You’ll enjoy reading about these places. I did!

    *** misunderstandings, I normally hate them, BUT believe me, here I couldn’t have enough of them!

    *** thoughts about love, friendship and life. GREAT.

    *** combination out of an easy and light read and a deep emotional subject.

    *** I ADORE the first person POV in this book. Jefferson is REAL and authentic. Have you been in love? Are you? Then you have to read it.

    *** THE ENDING. We know an abrupt ending a là JL. BUT THIS BOOK HAS THE BEST ENDING Josh Lanyon has EVER WRITTEN. I CRIED because it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo touching and soooooooooooooooooooooooo right and sooooooooooooooooooo beautiful.

Author

A passionate reader from Germany. I learned to read at the age of 4 and never stopped since then, though my books from that time were very different from what they are now. English is my third language, and I’m sorry for all grammar mistakes I made in my reviews. But I assure you, that my reading English is much better than my writing English. I’m a seeker for the books that differ from mainstream, that provoke the reader or have very often very opposite ratings.
