Happy Reading!!Thanks for stopping.
The Paris Secret looks like one I need to read!
It is really good.It is about an empty apartment that is filled with art work, and the art work has a secret behind it.Thanks for commenting, Laurel.
I haven't read any of Swan's books but I read a different author's version of this true story (The Velvet Hours). This weekend I'm listening to The Summer's End by Mary Alice Monroe.
I read The Velvet Hours and A Paris Apartment. Both about the apartment of Marte de Florian.I thought this was going to be the same apartment, but it is a different apartment and the issue is paintings stolen during WWII. Summer's End sounds good.Thanks for commenting, Mary.
Wow, I didn't know there was another apartment like that. Now I'm thinking there are probably more. But the art angle is what hooks me. Thanks for explaining!
Just finished the book and to verify...the author said it was found a few years ago.
ah, anther Paris book! I'm finishing an amazing mystery set in Venice: Venetian Blood: Murder in a Sensuous City. The descriptions are a-ma-zing!
Oh yes...books set in Paris are good. :)Venetian Blood sounds good, Emma. Love good descriptions.Thanks for commenting.
I haven't read any of Swan's books. This one looks enticing, though. I just finished reading The Noise of Time by Julian Barnes. It's biography (of Shostakovich) written as fiction and is heartrending. It gives you life under the various leaders of the USSR and how frightening it was to make the smallest error. When I put the book down, I felt I had lived there myself. Brilliant writing. Now I'm reading something lighter: Memoirs from Mrs. Hudson's Kitchen (Mrs. Hudson being Sherlock Holmes's landlady). Great details of London during the Victorian Era.
The Noise of Time does sound intense. Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth.Mrs. Hudson's Kitchen sounds wonderful. Love the Victorian Era.Thanks for commenting.
Elizabeth, I'm still reading Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro, slowly but surely. The Paris Secret sounds excellent. Have a great weekend!
I hope you are enjoying Never Let Me Go, Suko.Thanks for commenting.
I'm just finishing up "Captured" by Erica Stevens
I hope it is good, Carole Rae.Thanks for commenting.

The Paris Secret was an excellent read.Thanks for commenting, Mystica.
I am just starting Keep Her Safe by Sophie Hannah. I hope it's good.
I haven't heard any comments either way.I hope you enjoy it.Thanks for commenting, Ti.
