    "Another gem from Imogen Robertson"

    I have discovered Imogen Robertson's work only this year and I thoroughly love it. Her "Westerman & Crowther" novels are simply brilliant and excellently paced stories with wonderful characters so you should definately check them out.

    This is her only stand alone novel - it is a dark thriller about a middle class English woman Maud Heighton and her struggle to become an artist in 1909 Paris. The plot is alluring and makes you want to carry on reading and the characters are excellent you I was always re-assessing them.

    What I love most about this book is the descriptions of the floods of Paris in Jan 1910 and how she weaves this into the characters motivations and feelings at this point in the story. Its a storytelling masterclass and I loved it!!!

    Where does The Paris Winter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    in the top 5, it is a very addictive read, different, rich with imagery and tantalizing.
