Product Description:

In this glittering tale of forgotten treasures and long-held secrets, international bestseller Karen Swan explores one woman’s journey to discovering the truth behind an abandoned apartment and a family whose mysteries may be better left undiscovered.

When high-powered fine art agent Flora Sykes is called in to assess objets d’art in a Paris apartment that has been abandoned since WWII, she is skeptical at first—until she discovers that the treasure trove of paintings is myriad…and priceless. The powerful Vermeil family to whom they belong is eager to learn more and asks Flora to trace the history of each painting.

Despite a shocking announcement that has left her own family reeling, Flora finds herself thrown into the glamorous world of the Vermeils. But she soon realizes there is more to this project than first appears. As she researches the provenance of their prize Renoir, she uncovers a scandal surrounding the painting—and a secret that goes to the very heart of the family. The fallout will place Flora in the eye of a storm that carries her from London to Vienna to the glittering coast of Provence.

Xavier Vermeil, the brusque scion of the family, is determined to separate Flora from his family's affairs in spite of their powerful attraction to one another. Just what are the secrets he is desperately trying to hide? And what price is Flora willing to pay to uncover the devastating truth…?

The Paris Secret had me from the moment I started reading. Filled with a smart and sympathetic protagonist, a touch of romance, a smidgen of history, plenty of intrigue and suspense galore.”—Diane Chamberlain, internationally bestselling author of The Midwife's Confession



Flora Sykes can’t believe someone could forget about an apartment for more than seventy years. But then Flora discovers just how possible this type of incident can be when she is hired to catalogue the contents of an apartment in Paris owned by the Vermeil family that has been locked up and undisturbed since World War II. What turns out to be even more amazing is what Flora finds in the apartment: hundreds of pieces of art including two extremely valuable paintings. However, as Flora attempts to trace the provenances of the paintings, she uncovers a secret about the Vermeil’s past that could destroy everyone in the family including the devastatingly sexy and irresistibly arrogant Xavier Vermeil.

Inspired by the real-life discovery of a Paris apartment that had been boarded up since World War II, Swan’s latest addictively readable novel is a sophisticated mix of secrets, suspense, scandal, and seduction that manages to be both deliciously retro as well as smartly on trend in its literary appeal. The glamorous European settings and glitzy life-style of the characters in The Paris Secret evoke the fabulously entertaining 1980’s and 1990’s novels of Judith Krantz and Judith Michael while the book’s brooding hero and the potent sexual chemistry Swan cooks up between him and the heroine, will definitely draw in romance readers, who can’t get enough of the billionaire bad boys (with hearts of gold) heroes that are so popular today.

The Paris Secret is exhilarating, escapist fun.
