Lucy Foley: The Paris Apartment

Today I’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for The Paris Apartment. My review is written with thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me on the tour and to the publisher for my copy of the book.

Blurb:

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?

Review:

The Paris Apartment is very different to Lucy Foley’s previous novels, but I certainly enjoyed it just as much. I loved the darker edge to the story and from the beginning, I had so many questions and I was compelled to keep reading to discover what was happening. 

As the title suggests, Foley takes us to Paris in this novel. The city she paints for us is not the beautiful, romantic city we usually think of when we think of Paris and we do see a much darker underbelly, but I was still transported there effortlessly and was drawn into the story really easily. 

Each chapter in The Paris Apartment is told from the perspective of a different character. This really helped me to understand their different personalities and also helped to create intrigue as we discover the secrets that they are hiding, not only from us as readers but also from each other. I didn’t find the characters particularly likeable and I was never quite sure who to trust but I definitely wanted to know more about them! 

The Paris Apartment is very well plotted and I enjoyed the reveals along the way.

The Paris Apartment is available from Amazon.
