Summary:

Where Moulin Rouge meets The Paris Wife lies THE PARIS APARTMENT, a rich and colorful work by debut author Michelle Gable. When her boss tells her about the discoveries in a cramped, decrepit apartment in the ninth arrondissement, Sotheby' s continental furniture specialist April Vaught does not hear 'dust' or 'rats' or 'shuttered for seventy years'. She hears Paris. She hears escape. She cannot board the plane fast enough. When she arrives, April quickly learns the apartment is more than just some rich hoarder' s repository. Beneath the dust and cobwebs and stale perfumed air is a literal goldmine and not just in terms of actual dollars. First, there' s a portrait painted by one of the masters of the Belle Epoque. Then there are letters and diaries and a thousand indications the woman who lived there was more than a renowned courtesan with enviable dEcolletage. Suddenly it' s no longer about the bureau plats and Louis-style armchairs that will fetch millions at auction. It' s about a life. Two lives, actually. With the help of a salty Parisian solicitor and hundreds of private documents, April tries to uncover the secrets buried in the apartment. As she digs her fingers into one woman' s life, April can' t help but take a deeper look into her own. When two things she left bubbling back in the states begin to boil over, the problems she thought she had suddenly look quaint, more ancient than the shuttered flat. April starts to wonder if in this apartment, in this life, she' ll ever find what she' s looking for.

    Soooooo enjoyed this book. You are immediately drawn into the story and it has a great rhythm that you want to keep listening. The author did a great job of developing the characters which enhanced the plot. Highly recommend this read/listen. The narrators were great at harmoniously delivering the story.

    This was one of those books I got completely immersed in and was so sorry when it ended! The narrator was very good and brought the story to life wonderfully. Working from home during Covid has meant less travelling time, so as I always listen in the car it took a while - nice to have stretched it out.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters came to life for me and I was eager to learn more about Marte's life. The end of her life was a bit of a surprise. The narration was one of the best since I have started listening to audiobooks. And I liked that the diaries being read by someone else.

    Great book. Loved the setting.

    Two interesting stories, one from the 1900s and one contemporary, told in turns. Both have some basis in actual events and people which I didn’t realise until I started Googling the Belle Epoque characters. I particularly liked the narrator of Marthe’s diaries. At first I was a bit daunted by the length of the book but then didn’t want it to end.
