A new day...A new book. Good morning #Littens! Have a lovely day.
This is the second book that I have read about valuable art that was discovered in a Paris apartment which had not been entered for many years. Fascinating art world intrigue. Beautiful people and settings. Family secrets. Things aren‘t always what they seem. Finding love. Enjoyable read.
Happy Independent Bookstore Day!
These audiobooks (among others) are free today to celebrate... check out Libro.fm for more info. I highly recommend getting a membership and supporting your local indie bookstore. 😃
The Paris Secret was already on my wishlist thanks to @Laalaleighh and Tangerine looks too intriguing to pass up.
I‘ve already listened to and LOVED Strange the Dreamer—read by my favorite narrator, Steve West. 😍 Now I own it!
This is the second novel I've read about the real Paris apartment abandoned at the dawn of WW2 & left untouched. For the most part I really enjoyed the direction the author took it, the story & the focus on the art. Could have done without the romance which didn't click with me-but still the mystery & secrets kept me absorbed enough to overlook that aspect. With Ratatouille with Salmon inspired by the book for my blog book tour review-link below.
Finishing up the last 50 pages of this book I'm reviewing tomorrow before getting started on work projects & because it's Wednesday, there is my usual Wednesday coffeeshop breakfast of avocado toast with spicy garlic aioli & a press of local coffee. 🥑🍞☕️💚 Thank you for all of the love on last night's 2O0K post. I will be doing some kind of appreciation giveaway later this week--to say mahalo for all of the joy I get from all of you on Litsy.😍
#TuneIntoNovember #DoIWannaKnow Do I wanna know the sugar grams in my Caramel Soy Macchiato & apple hand pie? No, I do not.😆They are a tasty pairing & since I ate no pie on Thanksgiving, I'm having it for (second) breakfast today.😋Errands are run-settling in with this book for review next week-full of secrets that I'm sure I'll wanna know. The 2nd novel I've read based on the treasures/secrets in an abandoned Paris apartment. (1st is tagged👇🏻)
If you love Paris, art, and historical fiction, you will love THE PARIS SECRET.
Mystery, intrigue, and deceit abound in THE PARIS SECRET.

Happy Publication Day for #theParisSecret and #KarenSwan. Check out the 4⭐️ review. https://lharvey250.tumblr.com/post/166766767794/the-paris-secret-karen-swan-my-r...
I am reading THE PARIS SECRET by Karen Swan. Loving it.
The Paris Secret is a well-crafted and gripping story borrowed from a real-life Paris headline. Karen Swan writing is superb and she skillfully transports us from London to Paris to Vienna to Antibes. https://lharvey250.tumblr.com/post/166766767794/the-paris-secret-karen-swan-my-r...
Almost my last day in Crete!!! I've been enjoying every second here & getting so much reading time in - it was NEARLY enough! I don't know if it ever is enough, I've never actually reached that point, but this got close! It's been lovely 😊
This is my early morning reading with that first incredible cup of coffee on our little balcony, before the sun gets too hot, always one eye on the ocean

I'm sure my postmaster was amazed at the numerous packages that arrived at my tiny post office today. #Bookmail galore! Over half of the #PassportLitsy books for next year arrived, as well as my Historical Fiction PageHabit box. And, at my front door was a UPS delivery from @WilliamMorrow for a book I won on LibraryThing (the tagged book).
My dining room table looks like a book bomb went off - so many wonderful reads!
Plans fell through for tonight. But it is okay because I ended up going for a swim and now it's time to read and have a cider
Where to begin with The Paris Secret... this story was based off an article posted in the daily mail about a Parisian apartment found to have been sealed and forgotten for 70 years. Karen Swan imagines the dramatic story behind such a mystery, an ultra rich family with the means to forget about a Parisian property, the ill gotten treasure within its walls and the havoc such a secret would wreak on those in the know. Add a little sizzle and Voila!
