  • 3 5 stars Thanks to Netgalley and Lake Union Publishing for an e ARC in exchange for an honest review Readers choose books for all sorts of reasons and I am no exception I chose this book specifically for its title because Paris is one of my favorite cities in the world I may have mentioned this in other reviews, but I cried the very first time I saw that city and if the Eiffel Tower had been a person, well it most likely asked me to stop taking pictures of it The fact that it was also sur 3 5 s [...]


  • I will say this about this book, thank God for Coco Chanel and Arletty Those two women made the book worthwhile reading I found the beginning of the book very hard to get into thanks to Olivia Olsen, this young artist who has come to Paris to paint She s just the kind of character I have a problem with, a young naive thing that on the very first pages of the book meets a young anarchist that will take her by storm I was not amused, I found Olivia to be boring to be very frank However, I kep I wi [...]


  • Got this from NetGalley, which is sometimes as much a crapshoot as First Reads But I was surprised this time and delighted a good, gritty, urbane, accurate, practical, frightening, realistic, and generally pitch perfect novel of a little slice of Paris during the war And no smarmy, over the top, twee, treacly Romance anywhere.Review to follow.Oh, if anyone read that horrible gossipy, inaccurate, and poorly written National Enquirer version of the Ritz Hotel during the war by an alleged histor Go [...]


  • I very much enjoyed this trip to WW2 where real and fictional characters do a cross over in a plush hotel in Paris From Coco Chanel to famed French actress Arletty, not to mention a bunch of other well drawn fictional characters, all are faced with the invasion of the Nazis and all yearn to survive the best possible way This of course is far from being simple, especially for the central heroine who longs to save her boyfriend who is at the hands of the Gestapo One thing s for sure, though, si I [...]


  • If you re looking for an effortless read that juxtaposes the lifestyles of rich Nazi sympathizers and struggling Resistance workers in Paris during World War II, you ll enjoy this It really made my commute zip along If, however, you like your books with some depth and writing that rises above the workmanlike, this will disappoint The characters never blossomed into three dimensional Their motivations seemed pat and superficial For instance, did Arletty, one of the biggest French film stars If yo [...]
