The Paris Secret is all things glamour, fashion and money, but is a story based on lies, deceit and discovery.
Flora, a high-end art dealer, is called in to assess a collection of paintings found in a long-forgotten apartment in Paris. Yet after hitting dead end leads in her search for the background of the paintings, a series of lies with devastating consequences begins to unravel. This, paired with the volatility of the family she works with, her simultaneous hatred and obsession with Xavier, and her own family dramas, make for a book full of rich storylines that interweave together to create chaos in Flora’s life.
It took me a couple of chapters to properly get into this book, and for it to build up into something that I couldn’t put down. But I was soon captured, having to tear myself away from it, each chapter ending with a cliff-hanger that I just couldn’t wait to jump back to! The book gave a glimpse into the lives of the rich and powerful, and the places, designers and illustrious characters prominent in their world. And showed that despite perfect exteriors, turmoil can exist within a family regardless of their status.
For the most part, I would never have guessed the twists and turns of the plot, genuinely shocked when I read some of the most gripping storylines. I also enjoyed the diversity of the three central plots within the book, one based on romantic, one family, and one history and lies. This was a great book to read at the end of a long day, not too heavy but still able to completely grab my attention!
