The Paris Secret

By Karen Swan
Narrated by Lucy Price-Lewis / 12 hours 14 minutes

In this glittering tale of forgotten treasures and long-held secrets, international bestseller Karen Swan explores one woman’s journey to discovering the truth behind an abandoned apartment and a family whose mysteries may be better left undiscovered.

When high-powered fine-art agent Flora Sykes is called in to assess objets d'art in a Paris apartment that has been abandoned since WWII, she is skeptical at first—until she discovers that under decades of dust the treasure trove of paintings is myriad...and priceless. The powerful Vermeil family to whom they belong is eager to learn more and asks Flora to trace the history of each and every painting. Thrown into their rarified world, Flora soon realizes that there is more to this project than meets the eye, and, as she researches the provenance of their prize Renoir, she uncovers not only a scandal surrounding the painting but also a family secret. The fallout places Flora in the eye of a storm that carries her from London to Vienna to the coast of Provence, but Xavier Vermeil, the brusque scion of the family, is determined to separate her from his family's affairs...in spite of the attraction that propels them together. What secrets is he trying to hide, and what price will Flora pay to uncover the truth?

“I loved it. Escaping into a world of art, beauty and heartbreaking history, I was caught on page one and didn’t put it down until I finished it.”

Liz Fenwick , bestselling author of The Cornish House

The Paris Secret had me from the moment I started reading. Filled with a smart and sympathetic protagonist, a touch of romance, a smidgen of history, plenty of intrigue and suspense galore.”

Diane Chamberlain, internationally bestselling author of The Midwife's Confession

Reviews

“Behind the locked door are shocking secrets, an unlikely romance, and nail-biting intrigue--it’s definitely worth a peek.”

Kirkus Reviews

“A former fashion editor, Swan brings an eye for detail to her descriptive prose. Offer this to fans of Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series who may be looking for more sophistication.”
