Romance Is My Day Job: A Memoir of Finding Love at Last
Her book follows her initial decision to her arrival, then through France, and on to Italy where she has to decide what she wants to do with her life now that her plans and expectations have changed again.
From my highlights: …there are lessons in the bad and joy to be had there too. So many recipes, so much food. Do not read while hungry.
What I'm reading right now:
Bard chronicles the start of her relationship with Gwendal and the initial immersion of her life in Paris as she figures out culture, food, and her potential life with him. Each chapter includes recipes for the food she prepares or talks about in that portion of her story, and her experience with Parisian food and cooking are the foundation of the multilayered charm of this memoir.
My imaginary life was through, and my new life, my real life, was standing in front of me on the Paris sidewalk. Patience, by virtue of being a romance reader and a romance editor, is extremely fluent in romance fiction, its characters, and its tropes. Alas, as expected, that fluency can get in the way of navigating her own reality, which it does for her a few times, but her optimism and humor are part of what allow her and readers like me to persevere. Please note: there are some upsetting and abusive relationships included, so proceed with caution if that might make for difficult reading.
Year is the story of her experience as an exchange student, and it is all sorts of catnip for me because my own experience is similar.

Reviews provided by Syndetics Library Journal Review Bloom, an editor for Harlequin romance novels, here chronicles her personal journey toward love, beginning in high school and ending when she marries. Throughout the memoir, Bloom equates her love interests and friends to typical characters found in romance works. At times this can be confusing but does lead to people in her life surprising her by busting out of their assigned roles.

She nearly gave up on love. Then one day a real-life chance at romance made her wonder if what she'd been writing and editing all those years might be true. A Facebook message from a high school friend, Sam, sparked a relationship with more promise than she'd had in years.
But Sam lived thousands of miles away - they hadn't seen each other in more than two decades. Was it worth the risk? Could love and romance conquer all? As with the novels Patience edited for years, listeners will have to wait until the very end to find out. Austen Power Tis the Season.
