Dancing with Paris | [Juliette Sobanet]

Dancing with Paris

When Claudia takes a tumble in her grandmother’s San Diego dance studio, she awakens to her past life in 1950s Paris in the body of Ruby Kerrigan, the glamorous star of a risqué cabaret - and the number one suspect in a gruesome murder investigation. With the police hot on her trail and a handsome French doctor lighting a fire in her sinfully beautiful new body, Claudia has just five days to unmask the true killer and clear Ruby’s name. But to do so she must make an impossible choice, one that will change the course of both of her lives forever.

Publisher's Summary

In Paris, a past life promises a second chance at love.

Straitlaced marriage therapist Claudia Davis had a plan - and it definitely did not involve getting pregnant from a one-night stand or falling for a gorgeous French actor. Could her life possibly get any more complicated?

In a word: oui!

When Claudia takes a tumble in her grandmother’s San Diego dance studio, she awakens to her past life in 1950s Paris in the body of Ruby Kerrigan, the glamorous star of a risqué cabaret - and the number one suspect in a gruesome murder investigation. With the police hot on her trail and a handsome French doctor lighting a fire in her sinfully beautiful new body, Claudia has just five days to unmask the true killer and clear Ruby’s name. But to do so she must make an impossible choice, one that will change the course of both of her lives forever.

    "Pretty Awful"
    What would have made Dancing with Paris better?

    The writing is weak and repetitive (I get it, the croissants are buttery). I question the author's research. How did this get published? I'm glad I only paid $4.95.


    Has Dancing with Paris turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not at all. But I will avoid this author in the future.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine, not the very best I've heard but certainly not the worst, either.


    What character would you cut from Dancing with Paris?

    There wasn't one specific problematic character. The trouble with the story is the writing.

    Story
    "Not awful, for a fantasy, time travel piece"

    I didn't expect much from this, with the time travel element added to the fantasy, but it wasn't bad. Kind of a combination of Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, and The Wizard of Oz--even down to the ruby red shoes. It gets into a bit of trouble with the ending resolution (do babies en vitro time travel too?), but somewhat entertaining if you get it inexpensively.

    "Time Travel"
    What did you love best about Dancing with Paris?

    I am such a sucker for time travel. This was not a great book but it was enjoyable and very relaxing. I listen to books when I paint or clean the house or drive and this book is good for that.

    "A good story"

    It's hard to review this book as the concept was one that I thought very good. I guess my issue is with the repetitiveness of some parts .... to a point where I wished someone would shoot her .... and with the melodramatic narration at times. However, I persevered and listened right to the end to see how it all turned out.

    "Dreadful"

    I read glowing reviews of this book and was excited to listen to a time traveling story set in Paris.
    The concept is really good, in my opinion, but the writing is weak, the narrating terrible, even the sound quality of the recording is poor.
    I would like to think that anyone setting a book in Paris in 1959 would have done enough research to know not to describe the men as wearing bowlers, the women wearing pantyhose (while invented in 1959 they weren't generally worn til the mid-60s)
    In addition, there are smatterings of French thrown in - the main character describes a perfect French accent, but the narrator has clearly never heard one.
    I only made it an hour and a half in and threw my hands up in frustration.
