Praise for the Aimée Leduc series set in Paris:

“Compelling. . . . Aimée makes an engaging protagonist, vulnerable beneath her vintage chic clothing and sharp-witted exterior.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Charming. . . . Aimée is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city’s historical streets and byways with their eyes closed.”—The New York Times Book Review

“The buzz is partly about her heroine’s hip, next-generation, cutting-edge investigations and partly about Paris, a setting of unrivaled charm.”—Houston Chronicle

“Cara Black books are good companions. . . . Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendentally, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can’t go, these will do fine. Or, better yet, go and bring them with you.”—Alan Furst

“Conveys vividly those layers of history that make the stones of Paris sing for so many of us.”—Chicago Tribune

“If you’ve always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black . . . instead.”—Val McDermid

This was a fast paced and suspenseful novel. Best to have read other books in the series before this one as the other books have more character development of main characters. However, the plot and emotional tension are great. Also, one has to admire her courage and quick thinking which help to unravel the mystery, even though she does not figure out everything.

Did not live up to its hype. Generally bad sophomoric writing. The catch, that the main character is a young female investigator in Paris sounds interesting enough... but she's bland, ditzy and stumbles onto most of the clues. Zero character development. And really, who cares that she finds vintage designer clothes in second hand bins at flea markets? Vapid... written for fans of Sex In The City.
