I was disappointed in this book. It just wasn't what I expected. I would like to return it for a refund if possible but I can't find the place to ask for a return credit.

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.
