Summary

New York - based photographer Cat Jordan is ready to begin a new life with her successful, button-down boyfriend. But when she learns that she's inherited the estate of a complete stranger - a woman named Isabelle de Florian - her life is turned upside down.
Cat arrives in Paris to find that she is now the owner of a perfectly preserved Belle Époque apartment in the ninth arrondissement, and that the Frenchwoman's family knew nothing about this secret estate. Amid these strange developments, Cat is left with burning questions: Who was Isabelle de Florian? And why did she leave the inheritance to Cat instead of her own family?
As Cat travels France in search of answers, she feels her grasp on her New York life starting to slip. With long-buried secrets coming to light and an attraction to Isabelle de Florian's grandson growing too intense to ignore, Cat will have to decide what to let go of, and what to claim as her own.

A lovely story with a great central motif

I love time capsules, having found one myself, and love the idea of making up a completely fictional story to surround the discovery of this Paris apartment
It's a sweet story and fun to fantasise.

A fantastic story

I really enjoyed this story and wasn't expecting the twist at the end. Well worth listening to.

INteresting storyline

Would you try another book from Ella Carey and/or Emily Sutton-Smith?

Probably, I wouldn't pursue this author. She didn't develop the character "Cat" at all, supposedly the male character was in love with her immediately, yet she seemed more like an insecure child than an interesting adult.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the facts about the secret apartment, and the twist in the story via the author.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I didn't like the childlike voice of the reader.

Any additional comments?

I wouldn't recommend this book because of the main character, "Cat." She is not interesting. Charitable, kind, slightly unbelievably so, but not interesting.

Just average

I know i am in the minority here, but I was not impressed with this book. The beginning and ending were fairly good, but everything in between slow moving. Okay to pass the time.
