Book of the Week: The Paris Apartment

The Paris Apartment, by Lucy Foley

Absolutely mind-blowing, double-twisted mystery that leaves you on the edge of your seat. I could not put this book down. Just when you thought you were going to get some answers and the plot twist hits you—BAM—a new plot twist enters that is so completely unexpected, it leaves your mouth gaping wide open.

You will NOT see it coming. Fabulously written, engaging and intriguing.

This was my second book I’ve read by Lucy Foley, and it did not disappoint at all. There were so many elements and layers to the characters and the interactions that it grabbed you and kept you riveted the entire book. The characters all seem oddly mismatched, like the weirdest group of individuals to be assembled in an apartment complex. But as the truth is revealed, the complicated histories between them all make a lot more sense, and add a lot more depth to the mystery.

I think what helped with the ultimate plot twist most was the back and forth between past and present, so that you missed the nuance of a certain present that makes you realize A-ha! when the final twist is revealed.

The hints are there all along, but so carefully crafted, that you don’t see them until the reveal.

And, I have to say, I love some unexpected feel-good endings that are beyond the main characters…good deeds and heart alongside murder and mystery. There was a nice tie up at the end that made this book more than just a whodunit mystery.

HIGHLY recommended read.
