About The Book

Welcome to No.12 rue des Amants
A beautiful old apartment block, far from the glittering lights of the Eiffel Tower and the bustling banks of the Seine.
Where nothing goes unseen.And everyone has a story to unlock.
The watchful concierge
The scorned lover
The prying journalist
The naïve student
The unwanted guest
Something terrible happened here last night.A mystery lies behind the door of apartment three.
Only you – and the killer – hold the key . . .


My Thoughts

When Jess arrives in Paris escaping from her life, she expects to find her brother Ben to calm her, but instead she finds a hostile neighbourhood and Ben has gone missing. So, as soon as Jess starts asking questions to the residents of the building she feels that everyone is hiding something and no one is interested in finding her brother. Are you ready to help her find Ben?
This had been a twisted thriller, a little long sometimes but full of interesting characters. No one living in the apartment seems to like Ben and all seem to have a hidden agenda making Jess leave the apartment, but why? Ben was a cooking journalist, what has he discovered from all the people living in the building that could be so dangerous?
It was not difficult to distrust everyone, they all seem to be hiding something from her and lies are told in almost every conversation. I have to say that I would have loved knowing a little bit more of Jess’ past and more juicy secrets from everyone.
It has been an interesting read, this is one of my favourite books by Lucy Foley, she does an amazing job with the atmosphere and the character description, but in this book I missed something.
I hope you’ll take a chance to read it and tell me what you think!
