Those books look interesting. The one about acting and sounding like a French person must be very funny.

I love the idea of A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi! My (English) husband always goes on about the Gallic Shrug. But for a giant hint I might just choose the French Vineyards--what a great way to spend a summer touring France one year!!!
