Difficult book to categorise- chick lit with time travel?

Paris Adrift - E.J. Swift

 

Although not really my type of novel, I read it through to the end to see how the plot develops. It centres around Hallie, an English young woman, arriving in Paris to get away from her family and university life. She encounters many characters, especially at work, but also finds herself time-travelling to help others ( a bit Quantum Leap / Sliders).Without giving too much away, she finds love and a purpose.

 

The plot moves along a bit slowly as the characters are developed and there’s a fair amount of introspection. There are some nice stylistic moments but generally the book did not excite me although I “enjoyed” the possible future of Paris.
