Publisher's Summary

Less than 24 hours after fleeing to Paris, Maya Sinclair is the prime suspect in a brutal murder—and targeted by the real killer. When she's viciously attacked in the gardens of Versailles, Maya barely escapes with her life, thanks to sexy French journalist Simon Girard.

Simon has been investigating the mysterious death of his brother, an art forger with ties to the woman Maya is suspected of killing. Still healing from heartbreak of his own, Simon reluctantly joins forces with Maya, who has awakened feelings within him he thought long dead.

Their search for answers uncovers the existence of a secret society, and puts them on a quest to find a missing crucifix rumored to hold the key to everlasting life. Together, Maya and Simon race through Paris one step ahead of a killer who will do anything to ensure some secrets remain buried forever....

    Story
    "Thinly disguised "chic lit"--no Stephanie Plum"

    The plot summary intrigued me, as I spend a lot of time in Paris, and like reading about it. I had never heard of the author; but now think she is likely a mediocre romance novelist.

    The first thing that grated was the lame, weepy dialogue, and cliche beginning--a jilted woman going to Paris to "find" herself.

    The second was absolutely unforgivable--HORRIBLE French accents (they sounded more like they were from India), and ridiculous mispronunciations of just about every French name or word, including the name of the very famous town south of Paris, that was the center of interest in the "plot", and that virtually every supposedly French character discussed and repeatedly mispronounced. If you are going to stage a story in France, and most of the characters are supposed to be French; the narrator should have known a modicum of French--at least learned that the French accent the last syllable, rather than the American way of accenting the first. Moret-sur-Loing is a spectacular village, frequented by every French impressionist painter, and home to the inventor of the hot air balloon. To say "low-ing" is unforgivable. She should at the very least, have learned to pronounce that much repeated name!

    And, the third irritating detail was the overtly and extremely prolonged and detailed sex scenes, describing every touch, technique, movement, etc. This is a romance novel pretending to have a loftier purpose.

    When you think you are buying a thriller and get a weepy, poorly written romance novel--it is a waste. She is NO Janet Evanovich, and shouldn't pretend otherwise.

    "Took a long time to get to the solution"

    It seemed to make some unnecessary trips around the barn to get to the finish.
