A MelanieM Review: Made in Paris (Made In #3) by Ana Newfolk


Rating: 4 stars out of 5

When pen and paper meet to create the story of a lifetime.

New York. Paris. A friendship across continents and ages.

In Paris, days before Christmas, and on the most important stage of their lives, Dorian and Jean-Paul stumble upon the many letters they exchanged over the years since they became penpals at the tender age of ten.

Watch what happens when friendship turns into more.

Distance, tragedy, and fear.

Will anything get in the way of their love?


Short and sweet,  Made In Paris by Ana Newfolk is the third in her Made In series.  This lovely  novella traces back a romance and relationship through letters on a very  important day in their lives.  We’ve met these men before in the series.  We know them.  So getting to see them here at this stage and also being let into the secret of their beginning is so touching and heartwarming.

It made me want more.

It also sent me back to the first two stories.

But this was so sweet and I have always loved the format of letters as a vehicle to tell a story between two lovers.  When done well, it’s an emotional journey for the men involved as well the the reader as it happens here.

This should make you want to go and read the entire series.  They should be read in the order they are listed and I highly recommend them all.  Well written, tremendous characters, and storylines you won’t forget.  Go get started!

Cover Artist: Rhys Athanasiadis-Lawrence, Ethereal Ealain.  Love these covers.  They are perfect for the characters and the series.

At 10 years old Joel was uprooted from his home and everything he knew in Portugal to start a new life in the States. At 26 he finds himself returning for the first time in thirteen years. So what if looking into the eyes of his childhood best friend again still makes his heart race out of his chest?

Living in sunny, laid-back Portugal isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For David, dreams of being a pastry chef come second to working in his family’s café where his renowned custard tarts draw in the crowds. Seeing Joel brings old feelings back. Feelings he’s not sure he’s brave enough to acknowledge to anyone other than himself.

With the inspiration of an old travel journal, the two friends embark on a real journey through memories in a country where looking back into the past runs as deep as the blood that courses through their veins.

Falling in love was never meant to be a stop along the way, but maybe inevitable when you have the adventurous spirit and courage to pursue what you want, make love under the stars, and even figure out how to jumpstart an old Citroen 2CV in the middle of the Alentejo countryside.

Ana Newfolk was born in Portugal where she grew up surrounded by sunshine and countryside. She has always had a deep love of reading, and ever since she can remember her favorite presents and treats have always been books. She would often be found in her not-so-secret spot reading her favorite adventure books (when she was younger) and romance novels (when she discovered boys). At 20 years old she moved to the UK where she has lived since.

In 2015 Ana stumbled across her first MM romance novel by chance, and she was hooked. She loves reading about men falling in love, hard, fast and ever so sweetly. This new found love for LGBTQ+ romance has opened a new world for Ana, and in 2017 she decided to finally listen to the voices in her head and write them down.

In addition to the time she spends reading and writing Ana has a full-time job that involves meeting lots of people with interesting stories to tell. She also loves baking as much as she loves watching people eat what she creates, much to the delight of family, friends and work colleagues alike.
