The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley #BookReview #TheParisApartment #Mystery #Thriller #Netgalley @lucyfoleytweets @HarperCollinsAU #onceuponatimebookreviews

Today I am reviewing The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley. This was released on the 3rd of March, published by Harper Collins Australia.


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 

There was a murder here last night.
A mystery lies behind the door of apartment three.

Who holds the key?

“Unlock the mystery…Only you have the key…”

The Paris Apartment is a gripping thriller where its creepiness gave me goosebumps! Foley creates a claustrophobic atmosphere against a backdrop of a once beautiful Paris apartment block, where one of its residents last seen there is missing.

I was transported into the story and taken on a journey where its cast of diverse characters, each an unreliable narrator and suspect, have secrets to hide and I enjoyed finding out what they were. The mystery itself plays out well and its twists keep things interesting.

All round this is an enjoyable read and I look forward to Foley’s next book.

Thank you to Lucy Foley, Harper Collins Australia and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Paris Apartment, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK, but will post to Waterstones & Foyles if also available.
