Firstly Thank You so much @fictionpubteam @HarperCollinsUK
@eleanorwrites & @NetGalley for allowing me to review this wonderful book.

As soon as I saw Paris in the title, I knew it was the book for me and  i just adore the stunning cover it looks so romantic.
The story too had me gripped. History meets the present day mixed really well.

From the bestselling author of THE WEIRD SISTERS comes an enchanting tale of self-discovery that will strike a chord with anyone who has ever felt they’ve lost their way. 
Chicago, 1999.
Madeleine is trapped – by her family’s expectations, by her controlling husband – in an unhappy marriage and a life she never wanted. But when she finds a diary detailing her grandmother Margie’s trip to Jazz Age Paris, she meets a woman she never knew: a dreamer who defied her strict family and spent a summer living on her own, and falling for a charismatic artist.
When Madeleine’s marriage is threatened, she escapes to her hometown to stay with her disapproving mother. Shaken by the revelation of a family secret and inspired by her grandmother’s bravery, Madeleine creates her own summer of joy. In reconnecting with her love of painting and cultivating a new circle of friends, the chance of a new life emerges – but will she be bold enough take it?
