Publisher's Summary

When Jennifer arrived at Madame Chic's Parisian apartment as a foreign exchange student, Madame Chic took her under her wing and tutored her in the secrets of how the French elevate the little things in life to the art of living. Years later Jennifer was back in California with a husband, two young daughters, a dog, and her first home. She began to think about Madame Chic's home - how the breakfast table was set beautifully the night before, the music that always played in the background, and the calm of Madame and Monsieur Chic's ritual cocktail hour together. Jennifer wanted that life. She decided to see what would happen if she didn't perform her chores impatiently or mindlessly...and could live like Madame Chic.

At Home with Madame Chic reveals the secrets to having a happy, fulfilling, and passionate life at home. Jennifer explains the morning send-off need not be chaotic, it's possible to look stylish with minimal time and effort, a little forethought makes it possible to serve a home-cooked dinner every night, and details like music and scented candles can set the tone for the whole family's evening.

    "Sounds like a robot."
    What did you like best about At Home with Madame Chic? What did you like least?

    I really like the points that this author was making. A more formal, European lifestyle with more attention paid to good food, an organized home and planning are things I would love to here more about. But 3 hrs in to this 4 hr book I can not listen to this narration anymore. I'm pretty sure it's just a computer generated version of Siri reading. It's comically bad.


    Would you recommend At Home with Madame Chic to your friends? Why or why not?

    I can not recommend the audio version.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I've heard the author speak on her youtube videos. She could have narrated this herself 1000 times better.

    "Good book, lazy narrator."

    Would be better if the narrator could pronounce the foreign words she uses. Unfortunately, she didn't take the time to do her homework and find out. I laugh out loud sometimes at her ridiculous pronunciation.

    "Tres chic"

    At Home with Madame Chic is full of great practical tips to create a home that you love, your children love, and that is intentional and filled with peace and class. I would recommend this book to any mom who is looking to have a less frenzied life and the ability to enjoy each moment.

    "Inspiring and practical!"

    I loved the practical tips in this book and the adorable anecdotes. The reader is a little monotone unfortunately, but still worth a listen!

    "The French pronunciations are terrible"
    Would you try another book from Jennifer L. Scott and/or Amy Rubinate?

    Scott, yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Oh my goodness, I'm at the beginning and the narrator keeps pronouncing "bien dans sa peau" about as wrongly as it can be pronounced. I'm not asking for a perfect French accent, but she could have tried for one single minute to learn the correct pronunciation. Wow, terrible!

    "How to be the perfect housewife"

    Loved this book, all the advice, all the details. I am a single woman who has really struggled with having a barely functioning apartment, forget a smoothly running peaceful home like the author describes. This book has already been a great help- just this morning I used several of her tips: do Sisyphean tasks with a positive attitude, listen to peaceful classy music to begin your day on the right foot, wake up an hour before you normally do if you always rush too much in the morning, say affirmations, spend quality breakfast time with your loved ones . . . I will be listening again and again. My only issue with this audio book was the French pronunciation of the narrator, which was rather poor. There are a couple phrases which are repeated several times, so it became irritating.

    "Ooh la la...I ooh la loved it!"

    The contents of this book made me whip out a pen & notebook so I wouldn't forget the valuable information the author shared...Yes, I wrote down some notes...it felt like I was in a class...HA!...learning about class!
    Loved how the info was arranged...section by section. Loved how practical the advice turned out to be... What can I say? The book is simply filled with usable, very valuable information.
    I'll definitely be listening to this several times...I don't want to forget a thing! Now...I'm off to purchase Jennifer Scott's newest book!!!
