"This lovely book [In Love in France] does its subject justice. It is smartly writtten, has wonderfully evocative color photographs and is full of

insightful details that capture the heart and soul of Paris." 

Chicago Tribune

"…turn to Rhonda Carrier’s fabulous guides in the Frommers With your Family series, which accompany you up each street to find the best

family-friendly cafe and direct you towards the nearest playground." 

Dea Birkett

"Invaluable for anyone travelling with children, [Brittany With Your Family] is full of genuinely useful advice about finding – among other

 things – the best castles, beaches, boat trips, museums and campsites." 

The Sunday Telegraph

"To have an expert in your pocket, your handbag or in the glove compartment of your car is never less than reassuring, so don't forget to

take Rhonda with you; she is eminently good company."
