After her brilliant, artist father died on 9/11, Joan ended up giving up most of her dreams only to find herself, 9 years later, in a boring job and a boring marriage. Her marriage implodes and she accepts a job couriering some art to Paris only to have it stolen and replaced with pages from her dad's missing notebooks. She and her one night stand end up on a treasure hunt around Paris to get the art back and find out who has her dad's notebooks.

Action packed. While Jack Morgan is visiting Private‘s Paris office he is asked to protect a top client‘s granddaughter. Somehow she is tied in with violent criminals. As Morgan investigates, he is asked to help with some murders which keep bumping into a war starting…are they all somehow tied into one another?

PROMPT: WITH TWO+ AUTHORS

Three women, three different time periods, three different situations, but they all find the Ritz of Paris to be their comfort zone.

The 3W's did it again!! ALL THE WAYS WE SAID GOODBYE is another marvelous, well-researched, difficult-to-put-down tale.

Approachable and absorbing social and cultural history. I pulled this off the shelf while reading The Postcard and it turned out to be a great companion read. I went with a combination of audio (good narration) and print (black and white photos throughout).

tpixie Thanks! #europiacollective The Postcard was a moving read! 1mo

The House In Paris | Elizabeth Bowen

There is a lot going on in this book that I didn‘t understand the main one being Henrietta why was she in the story at all?

The real story centres around Leopold and the mystery of why he doesn‘t live with his mother, a mystery which is slowly revealed when the narrative switches to the past and we learn his mother‘s story.

I think I would have enjoyed it more if I followed everything that was going on.
