Publisher's Summary

Three women running away from their lives become unlikely friends in a beautiful house in the heart of Paris.

Lost in France, a country she mistrusts, among French people she hardly understands, Annie has trouble venturing away from home since the death of her husband. And since home happens to be a small jewel of a house nestled in the heart of Paris, why would she ever want to? But when bankruptcy threatens her beloved house, her one anchor in life, Annie has no choice but to find renters, and quick.

Leave it to someone socially phobic to phrase a want ad in all the wrong ways. With shimmering promises of "starting over in Paris" - a concept she has no intention of applying to her own life - Annie attracts tenants with the kind of baggage that doesn't fit in suitcases. A long-legged, cool-headed ex-model (everything Annie is not) on the run from her abusive husband, a frail young woman harboring a possible death wish, a mysterious French artist, and an infuriating blue-blooded French man soon threaten Annie's way of life in ways she never anticipated.

But when Annie finds herself reluctantly yet actively engaged in the rescue of her tenants, she discovers that she might just save herself in the process.

Unsettling

Due to the reader's voice, I just cannot finish this audio book. Maybe the characters would come across differently if read in hard copy. There is just too much friction in the characters, all of the time...for me. The plot development is lacking and leaves me bored. The story line was not compelling. When reading books about Paris, I want more romance and this book does not deliver. The reader's voice is grates on my nerves. Maybe too much emotion all of the time? Oh well, I am sending this one back.
