Book: The Paris Apartment
Author: Lucy Foley
This is my 71st book of the year
This is the story of Jess. She has traveled to Paris to meet her brother, Ben, and hopfully crash with him for awhile. She hasn't seen him in awhile, but finds herself in circumstances where she really needs his help. When she arrives in Paris, Ben isn't at the apartment, and Jess can't get him on his cell. She enlist the help of neighbors, and someone who was working with Ben to try and find out what happened to him. What Jess finds is an apartment building full of suspicious people who seem to know something but aren't telling. As Jess delves into Ben's life in Paris and the people who knew him, she starts to think that something terrible happened to him.
This was an okay book. I actually liked it better than the other book I read of hers: "The Guest List". The chracters are all terrible people, but they are supposed to be. I thought several times while reading this that the author really doesn't seem to like the French. Her characters were prety stereotypical. You figure out pretty quickly who is involved in Ben's disappearance, but it kept me entertained well enough. I listened to this one and while I didn't jump to keep listening to it, when I needed entertainment during yard chores, this kept me going.
