A Paris Apartment

Bienvenue Paris!When April Vogt's boss tells her about an apartment in the ninth arrondissement that has been discovered after being shuttered for the past seventy years, the Sotheby's continental furniture specialist does not hear the words dust or rats or decrepit. She hears Paris. She hears escape.Once in France, April quickly learns the apartment is not merely some rich hoarder's repository. Beneath the cobwebs and stale perfumed air is a goldmine, and not because of the actual gold (or painted ostrich eggs or mounted rhinoceros horns or bronze bathtub). First, there's a portrait by one of the masters of the Belle Epoque, Giovanni Boldini. And then there are letters and journals written by the very woman in the painting, Marthe deFlorian. These documentsreveal that she was more than a renowned courtesan with enviable decolletage. Suddenly April's quest is no longer about the bureaux plats and Louis-style armchairs that will fetch millions at auction. It's about discovering the story behind this charismatic woman.It's about discovering two women, actually.With the help of a salty (and annoyingly sexy)Parisian solicitor and the courtesan's private diaries, April tries to uncover the manysecrets buried in the apartment. As she digs into Marthe's life, April can't help but take a deeper look into her own. Having left behind in the States a cheating husband, a family crisis about to erupt, and a career she's been using as the crutch to simply get by, she feels compelled to sort out her own life too. When thethings she left bubbling back home begin to boil over, and Parisian delicacies beyond flaky ptisseries tempt her better judgment,April knows that both she and Marthe deserve happy finales.Whether accompanied by croissants or champagne, this delectable debut novel depicts the Paris of the BelleEpoque and the present day with vibrant and stunning allure. Based on historical events, MichelleGable's A Paris Apartment will entertain and inspire, as readers embrace the struggles and successes of two very unforgettable women....

A Paris Apartment Reviews

  • Aurora

    Only made it about halfway through, with effort, and tonight I stumbled into some pretty clumsy writing and refused to spend more time on it. How is this book's average rating almost a 4? The premise of the story has appeal, but I feel like it's already been done, and much more skillfully.

  • Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews

    Paris in the late 1800's during the Belle Epoque, antique furniture and paintings, and journals from an apartment's original inhabitant. All of these things made A PARIS APARTMENT a book that will keep you glued to the pages.

    Who wouldn't want to go to Paris? April was an art history major and an auctioneer. When her boss told her she would be going to Paris to put value on an apartment's contents that had been closed up for 70 years, she couldn't pass up the chance even though her marriage was a

    It's no surprise that I love all things Paris, so this book was already up my alley. I loved April from the start (and is it too late for me to become both a librarian AND an auctioneer?), and I (of course) loved Luc. Marthe de Florian, even at the end, was a phenomenal, larger than life character; it is easy to see why April loved her so much. When all of those curveballs were thrown, I didn't think I could like the story even more...and then, of course, I did.

    Влюбих се в Париж и чета всякакви бози, които имат този град в името си.

    ПАрижкият апартамент започва много интересно и увличащо. Но опитът да се опишат два романа в едно е катастрофален. Историческият роман на Март, описанието на Бел епок и изобщо цялата тази част е разкошна. Това, ако беше отделен роман, щеше да е много успешен. От друга страна - съвременната линия на Април (да има заигравка с имената на героините) е пълна скука. Действието се води през очите на Април и тя през цялото време се

    A bit of truth mixed with the imagination of a gifted author spotlights Paris past and present in this exceptional debut novel. Sure to be a bestseller, A PARIS APARTMENT captivated me from the first page. Every character and setting is crafted with the precision of a master artist.

    The intriguing element of brilliantly composed 1890s Paris journal entries (written by a most fascinating female character) adds a layer of intrigue as the story weaves leading lady April Vogt’s contemporary journey a

    I'm so disappointed in this book. It sounded great, the reviews seemed good and I love to read anything (almost) about Paris.

    What went wrong? It's an intriguing idea - the closed apartment full of treasures, the two story lines, the parrallels and mysteries between the mother stories, even the marriage angst. It could have, should have, been a great read.

    But no. It made me reflect on how some writers can find the exact correct word or phrase to make a story come alive, how sometimes a sentence i

    I was a history major as an undergrad. There's a reason for that: I love history, in all its forms. I enjoy conjecture in my history, too, so long as its based on evidence. What I don't like, however, is when a fictional story is spun around someone who actually lived. That's what happened here.

    Of course I'd heard about the apartment in Paris that had been closed for 70 years and was discovered just a few years ago. What an incredible find! And I remembered that a valuable painting had been foun

    Not only did I love this book in and of itself, but the fact that it is the debut novel of my childhood friend made it that much more fun and exciting to read.

    What a fantastic "escape" to Paris through the eyes of a modern-day Sotheby's furniture expert and also through the journals of a famous "demimondaine" of the Belle Epoque era. The story goes back and forth between the two time periods and both stories are well done.

    This book is extremely well-researched and beautifully written. You would
