I JUST LOVED THIS BOOK!! "What if, everything you knew suddenly seemed like a nightmare?" A fight for life book. Reading this book was like opening a window into my heart and soul. It was an alluring, multi-dimensional story, a witty, double-edged tale of intrigue, romance and French culture. What could have been a mournful, hopelessly bleak story, (the way it started), but instead perseverance, and sheer will turned adversity into an uplifting tale of triumph of the human spirit. The author unveils the mask of evil in the grizzly details of a murderer who murders to get control. This provides a suspenseful backdrop to a beautiful love story and the ideal essence of life. Angie remained in a state of emotional limbo of quiet desperation until she met Ross, who was everything Mitch wasn't. The emotional tension with the blossoming friendship with Ross and then the possibility of forbidden love kept me on an emotional high then my heart pounded louder and harder as the storyline switched gears leading to a threatening, dark, dangerous place, hence "EXPLOSION" in EXPLOSION IN PARIS. Never go on a boat alone with someone you don't trust!! Angie's soaring spirit rose above the atrocities she'd endured to embrace life and struggle to find a life of her own outside of the emotional prison that Mitch was determined to keep her in. I was totally immersed in the life she'd carved out for herself, even envied her! I was intrigued by so many of Angie's unexpected maneuvers to seek justice for Mitch's murderous tasks. There were tons of surprises that kept me entertained and attached to the book. The light-hearted humor throughout in conversations along with witty, playful banter added such depth to the characters. The dialog was completely entertaining and kept me chuckling, if not laughing out loud. There were many memorable, profound quotes I enjoyed. "Life is CHOOSING to love." "We need to forgive ourselves and everyone else for NOT being perfect." "We are all looking for the Fairy Tale. When it doesn't come, we try to create it." I love the tidbits of philosophy throughout. The background story is cleverly woven into the storyline without slowing down the pace of the plot and the dramatic events take the story in a whole new direction and kept me hooked and in a trance. The reckoning came when Angie saw to it that Mitch was forced to face his demons. In a world of endless, been there, done that romance, far out, unimaginable science fiction and unbelievable vampires, witches and werewolves, this amazing voice of real life, inspiration, believability and depth presents a deliciously satisfying, unforgettable, intriguing, riveting story that is worth reading and remembering! This one could change the way you see yourself and the world. An exquisite gem of a book! This is one of my all time FAVORITE BOOKS!
