I have been really lucky lately in finding some really great audiobooks and The Paris Key by Juliet Blackwell is one of them. A story that alternates from the past to the present revealing long buried secrets The Paris Key is a story of a woman learning of her past while reinventing her present.
The Paris Key is narrated by Xe Sands who I really enjoy listening to. I love her voice and the hours just fly by when I’m listening to her. She’s definitely on my list of favorite narrators.
Genevieve spent a wonderful summer in Paris as a girl. She learned the art of locksmithing from her uncle and seemed to have a knack for it. However she had to go home and never really thought of it much until she learns that her uncle has passed and she has the opportunity to take over his shop. Since Genevieve is at a crossroads in her life with her separation from her husband she makes the trip to Paris. While repairing some locks in an old house Genevieve discovers secret passages that lead to her learning long buried secrets about her own mother. Secrets that have the power to change Genevieve’s life forever just as Paris does.
Fancy It or Not
I definitely fancied it. First I love stories taking place in Paris and secondly I love stories that alternate from past to present as this one does. Then there are all the things that go with Paris like the food, wine, bakeries- all of it. It made me long for Paris and listening to it in audio made it all the more real for me.
