When her Uncle passes away Genevieve leaves her Calfornia home to return to Paris to run her uncle's shop.
The story of present day Genevieve is joined with that of her her mother's point of view as she fell in love with Paris in the past.
This book is a wonderful vacation from everyday life into the world of Paris, hidden doors and family secrets. The protagonist Genevieve knows little French when she arrives and her adventures in Paris are our adventures in Paris. It's almost as if we are peeking into the keyholes of their lives. The plot is intriguing and kept me turning the pages. I loved the characters and came away with a rich sense of Paris that makes me long to get on a plane. If you love Paris, you'll love The Paris Key.
