The Paris Maid by Ella Carey

Grandma Louise's daughter found a photo of her after the war with a swastika on her forehead and being paraded through the streets of France.

Her daughter sent it to Nicole.

Nicole couldn't believe Grandma could have been a Nazi collaborator.

Or maybe she was and that's why she would never talk about the war.

Nicole had to find out the truth, but could she after all these years?

We follow Nicole, Louise, and soldiers as the story unfolds and truths are revealed.

THE PAIRS MAID will keep you glued to the pages as you live through the war with Louise, soldiers, The Resistance, and all the citizens trying to stay alive.

You will also hope Nicole finds out that her Grandmother is innocent because she can't think of her grandmother any other way than the way she knew her.

THE PARIS MAID is historical fiction and a mystery wrapped up into one good read.

Enjoy!! 5/5
