I’ve listened to a few of Lucy Foley’s books and really enjoyed them. I initially hesitated on her newest because I had heard that some hadn’t liked it but then I thought I’d see for myself. I’m so glad I did as I really enjoyed it! Also look at that cover – it’s great! It sets the premise for a creepy apartment building with residents who have plenty to hide.
Jess is desperate to get away from her life so she sets out to stay with her half brother Ben in Paris. She recieves a message from him telling her what apartment it is and that he’ll be waiting for her. Yet when she arrives he isn’t anywhere to be found. He isn’t answering his phone and the apartment is empty. She starts asking around only to find that the residents aren’t all that friendly nor are they too eager to help her. Something is wrong. Jess can feel it. She’s determined to find out what has happened to her brother and she quickly discovers that doing that could prove dangerous.
I listened to the audio of course and it was fantastic with a full cast of narrators bringing the story to life. The narrators include Clare Corbett, Daphne Kouma, Julia Winwood, Sope Dirisu, Sofia Zervudachi, and Charlie Anson. Wow! They are all great and they drew me fully into this story. I love audios for this very reason – when you have really good narrators they can make you feel as though you’ve got a movie playing in your head.
The Paris Apartment is a twisty tale that keeps you wondering what will be coming around the corner. For me it was another great book from Lucy Foley!
