Book Review: We'll Always Have Paris, A Mother/Daughter Memoir

Memoirs & biographies can be hit or miss. Sometimes, another person's life just isn't that interesting. Everybody loves to hear the dirt & get a glimpse behind the scenes with the infamamous, the great, the celebrities. But ordinary people? Why would you want to read that? Jennifer Coburn, despite being an 'ordinary person', has penned a must-read memoir about her travels with her daughter in Europe.

Prone to the pessimistic idea that she would die young, Coburn decides to take her daughter on a European adventure so she'll have something to remember her by. Spoiler alert: Jennifer Coburn does NOT die young. She & her daughter travel all over Europe over four trips in eight years  In fact, I'm fairly sure she's still alive & well. The story is engaging because she's just like us, making silly tourist mistakes, facing her fears of leaving the hotel room & getting lost. In fact, the book is really funny & I'm enjoying it immensely.

If you're looking for a great summer read for yourself or a gift for mom, this is a good bet. It's $10 for Kindle or $13 for paperback on

Jennifer Coburn is a USA Today best selling author of six novels and contributor to four literary anthologies. Over the past two decades, Coburn has received numerous awards from the Press Club and Society for Professional Journalists for articles that appeared in Mothering, Big Apple Baby, The Miami Herald, The San Diego Union-Tribune and dozens of national and regional publications. She has also written for, Creators News Syndicate and The Huffington Post.

Coburn lives in San Diego with her husband, William, and their daughter, Katie. We'll Always Have Paris is her first memoir.
