Not bad for early in her career
on June 14, 2004
Maybe I'm biased since I love everything Luanne Rice writes...I've read all of her newer novels, and I've worked my way back to her older stuff. I've enjoyed them all, but of course the older books aren't as "polished".
Secrets of Paris is like an anatomy of a marriage. We see two people who are going through a rough transitional time in their lives, and trying to get through it and stay together. They thought moving to Paris for a year might help, but of course it brings about new issues as well. This couple makes friends, move forward in their careers, but will they make progress in their marriage?
Again, this is not Rice's best work. I did however enjoy the story and characters. I cared about them and what would happen. To me, that's a good story. If you haven't read Luanne Rice before, I would recommend some of her newer novels first though- like Cloud 9, Firefly Beach and Safe Harbor.
