Imagine the film ?Before Sunrise with three times the ?participants and a bit less subtlety, ?and you get the gist of Sussman’s sexy travelogue French Lessons. Three couples, each composed of a hot young French tutor and an attractive, emotionally bruised American student, spend a day strolling, café-ing, and conjugating through the streets of Paris. And since they’re in the City of Love, chatting in the language of love, secrets of the heart are revealed and beds are fallen into. Sussman certainly knows her way around a boudoir scene — and when those boudoirs are in Paris, well, you end up with some sizzling ? escapist reading. B+
