Author Juliette Sobanet: Dancing With Paris (Giveaway)

Posted July 16, 2013 by Shari in Book Tour, Guest Post / 48 Comments

Thank you so much for having me on Delighted Reader! Today is the official release day for my fourth novel, Dancing with Paris, and I’m thrilled to be here to celebrate with you!

First, a little more about the book:

Dancing in Paris by Juliette SobanetIn Paris, a past life promises a second chance at love.

Straitlaced marriage therapist Claudia Davis had a plan—and it definitely did not involve getting pregnant from a one-night stand or falling for a gorgeous French actor. She thinks her life can’t possibly get more complicated. But when Claudia takes a tumble in her grandmother’s San Diego dance studio, she awakens in 1950s Paris in the body of Ruby Kerrigan, the glamorous star of a risqué cabaret—and the number-one suspect in the gruesome murder of a fellow dancer. As past lives go, it’s a doozy…especially when an encounter with a handsome and mysterious French doctor ignites a fire in Claudia’s sinfully beautiful new body. 

But time, for all its twists and turns, is not on her side: Claudia has just five days to unmask the true killer, clear Ruby’s name, and return to the twenty-first century. To do so, she must make an impossible choice, one that will change the course of both of her lives forever.


Anyone who has read my books knows that I am hopelessly and forever in love with France, and more specifically, with Paris, the dazzling City of Lights. I’ve been lucky enough to spend time living and studying in Paris, and ever since my very first trip at the age of fifteen, I’ve always felt as if I was coming home. Considering I grew up in the cornfieldsof Ohio, my friends and family have always been baffled by my inexplicable connection to France, but it’s always made perfect sense to me. When I’m in Paris, I’m swept away to another world…a world where I can speak the most elegant, gorgeous language I’ve ever heard, where the scent of buttery croissants greets me every morning as I stroll down a charming cobblestone street, where I can sit for hours at sidewalk cafés drinking wine with my friends and feel simply and truly alive.

Eiffel TowerI base my novels in France because I want to sweep my readers away to this romantic, vibrant setting just as Paris first swept me away. I used to joke that I must’ve been French in a past life—it was the only explanation I could come up with for why I had this strong desire to learn French and travel to Paris from such a young age. It was this idea that led to the premise for Dancing with Paris. What if my main character really had lived in Paris in her past life? And what if she had the chance to travel back in time to re-experience that life and potentially change her fate? In Dancing with Paris, I explore all of these questions while taking readers on a magical, suspenseful voyage back in time to romantic 1950s Paris. I hope you are swept away by the sights, sounds, and delicious smells of Paris in the pages of my latest novel…and of course meeting a few sexy French men along the way won’t hurt either!

Bon voyage!

  • I was so excited to see “Dancing in Paris” on my Kindle early this morning! I had been waiting for the book’s release for a few months. Since I’ve been to Paris, I can relate to many of the locations Juliette Sobanet mentions in her books. When I started reading the book I felt I was a bystander in Paris watching the story unfold. After reading her last three books about Paris, I’m planning a trip to go back to France within the next two years. Thank you, Juliette, for your books about Paris because it allows us to vicariously experience the story.

  • Suzy

    Paris is my absolute favorite city! Would love to live there for a summer and enjoy all the culture and beauty!

  • Mena

    I read your serial publication, Midnight Train to Paris. I was enthralled. I wanted to throw my kindle when I reached the last bit of each section. I must have checked a minimum of four times per week “just in case” the next section went live early! Thank you for an engaging and surprising story. I didn’t know how it was going to end from the beginning and that’s a delightful surprise. Yet, you wrote it so I still loved the ending. That’s a rare talent!

    • Thank you so much Mena! I love the image of you throwing the Kindle (or wanting to) because you reached the end of an episode! That is probably one of the best compliments I’ve received. I’m thrilled that you were so surprised by how things turned out in Midnight Train to Paris, and that you enjoyed the story so much. Hope you like Dancing with Paris just as much! Merci! 🙂

    Juliette- I’m so excited this day has finally arrived! I visited Paris 10 years ago around Christmas time and absolutely loved it! I’ve been looking forward to DWP ever since I read SWP a couple years ago. Since then, I’ve been hoarding your books waiting until the next one comes out before reading the previous one… that way, I always have a trip to Paris waiting for me just around the corner, for whenever I miss it most! Thanks for the wonderful stories and all the beautiful imagery you put into them! I’m hoping to see Paris again someday, but until then your books are the next best way to travel.

    • Thank you so much Angel! I love that you are hoarding the Paris books, and I’m so happy to have a new Paris release to share with you. Your support means so much. Thank you!

  • A Paris trip is on my bucket list.

  • Good to see another one of your books out! We shall all dream of Paris, again and again, with you. Merci!!!

  • I now live in the south of France but first fell in love with France via Paris…still have a mad love affair with Paris x

  • Congratulations, Juliette!!!! Really enjoyed reading MIDNIGHT TRAIN TO PARIS. Can’t wait to read DANCING WITH PARIS!!!!

  • Rose

    I have really enjoyed your Paris books, looking forward to this one! I know what you mean about “coming home”
    when you travel to Paris. I have that feeling when I visit Europe also. Keep up the great writing!

  • Congratulations! I can’t wait to read it!

  • Okay, here’s the thing. Before I ever visited Paris, I dreamed about Paris. Oh yes, even though I was only 20 years old and didn’t KNOW that it was Paris in my dream, I visited the streets of this devastatingly romantic city and knew it like the back of my hand. Two years later, I visited Paris for a week and…yup, saw all of the streets from my dream. So I have decided that I lived in Paris in a previous life. Just don’t know in what century. Your books sound fun and fabulously…Parisian!

  • Thanks so much for all of the book love, everyone! I’m so grateful for your support, and I love reading about all of your Paris stories! 🙂

  • I have read most of Juliette’s books and I love them all. I love France, and mostly because of Paris. I have never been there and well she transports me there! Very excited for this new one! Congrats!
