This is the third book by Foley that I’ve read, after The Hunting Party and The Guest List. I would definitely say she’s a favorite mystery author. I love how she takes a bigger cast of characters and leaves you guessing all their little, and big, secrets.

Before I read this book, my favorite Foley novel was The Guest List…and it’s still The Guest List after reading The Paris Apartment. That’s not to say it’s a bad novel, by any means. It was still full of intriguing, often unlikeable characters, that are hiding a myriad of secrets. However, it was a bit slow in the beginning and it definitely took me longer to get adjusted to the story.

Once I got about halfway, things started to pick up and I was fully invested in figuring out what happened to Ben, who has gone missing. The end was definitely a shock to me, which I loved! It was fun not knowing what was ultimately going on, even if I did guess a few things here and there.

I’d recommend it if you’re already a fan of Foley, and if you’re new to her, maybe start here instead of reading the books in the order they were released.

  1. I actually liked this one better than The Guest List. I think because I listened to The Guest List, I felt like I missed things.

  2. I have heard a few people say that they didn’t like this one as much as her others, but I will probably still read it at some point.

    Honestly – I would add this one to my collection just because of how aesthetic the cover is LOL – the color scheme is wonderful.
