Struggling American writer Tim Nolinger pursues his journalism career in Paris while proper Frenchwoman Anne Sophie plans their wedding. When Tim covers the theft of a valuable manuscript, the story leads the couple to the local home of a reclusive American film director and his actress wife. Once there, Tim and Anne Sophie find themselves in the midst of a murder investigation, a French-American feud, and a reckless love affair that threatens to destroy their marriage even before it begins.
Diane Johnson weaves acerbic humor and refreshing observations into this thoroughly modern tale of love and marriage. With her dramatic performance, Suzanne Toren brings out the moral complexities that shimmer just beneath the surface.

"Another wickedly clever comedy of manners." (Publishers Weekly)
I could barely manage finishing this book, the story line is weak, the love triangle is blah and the murder does not provoke the least bit of interest, nor does the marriage.
Dear God this book is boring. I'm only at chapter 17 and there is nothing happening thus far. Don't waste your time.
