Welcome to No.12 rue des Amants
A beautiful old apartment block, far from the glittering lights of the Eiffel Tower and the bustling banks of the Seine. Where nothing goes unseen, and everyone has a story to unlock.
The watchful concierge
The scorned lover
The prying journalist
The naïve student
The unwanted guest
There was a murder here last night.
A mystery lies behind the door of apartment three.
Who holds the key?
Lucy Foley has excelled herself – yet again!
Jess has left England and headed to Paris to stay with her brother, Ben. Although it was a sudden decision, she let him know she was coming and expected him to meet her at the station – but he never showed up. Armed with the address, Jess sets off and finds that he lives in a private apartment in a building with it’s own courtyard, complete with a live-in concierge. However, there’s no sign of Ben; where is he? His old friend Nick lives in the apartment below – can he help her find her brother?
Such a good read! Without giving anything away, the author provides just enough information to get the reader hooked on the story and unable to let it go until discovering what’s going on. Lucy Foley produces another well-paced novel and she is exceptionally good at always having a few secrets up her sleeve to both surprise and delight her audience. Did I see what was coming? Well, I thought I did but the author was way ahead of me at every turn. A stunning read and the kind of book I wish I could start all over again without being aware of what was going on. Dazzlingly delightful, highly recommended and easily earning all five glowing stars.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
