Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Shuttered for 70 years, the ninth arrondissement apartment is a treasure trove for furniture appraiser April Vogt. Plus, an extended trip to Paris allows her to avoid her troubled marriage. As April uses the diaries of Marthe de Florian to establish provenance of the pieces, she becomes obsessed with Marthe’s Belle Epoque exploits, her rivalry with Jeanne Hugo (Victor’s granddaughter), and her path from Folies Bergère bartender to renowned (if forgotten) courtesan. All the while, April struggles to forgive her husband’s infidelity, a situation not helped by the presence of Luc Thebault, the estate’s solicitor, who seems determined to make sure April doesn’t work too hard. Gable’s debut is strongest when Paris is the focus, whether it’s suffering a rude waiter at a corner bistro in the present day or dripping in jewels and furs and being bored by Proust in a café at the turn of the century. Some of April’s actions late in the book will render her unforgivable to many readers, so if sick parents and infidelity are red flags, pass on this one. Otherwise, vive la Paris apartment! --Susan Maguire

Review

"With its well-developed, memorable characters and the author's skillful transitioning between story lines...this stunning and fascinating debut will capture the interest of a wide audience but particularly thoseinterested in stories about women behind famous men like MelanieBenjamin's The Aviator's Wife or Nancy Horan's Under the Wide and Starry Sky. Highly recommended." -Library Journal (starred review)

"Gable's Paris of today and yesteryear are worlds that are easy and pleasurableto get lost in. April's and Marthe's stories intersect, at timesblatantly and at times subtly mirroring or contrasting one another....This parallel construction, the sense of place and atmosphere, andGable's often witty writing are the book's greatest strengths." -The San Diego Union-Tribune

"Pick it up as the perfect escape--you'll quickly be whisked away through the vividly described scenery and events of life in Paris." -Spa Weekly Daily

"The inspiration for A Paris Apartment began in 2010 when Gable's agent sent her an intriguing article withthe note: 'I think you can do something with this.' A real-life Parisian flat, abandoned for 70 years, its contents frozen in time? Absolutely,she could." -Celeste Williams, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Vive le Paris apartment!" -Booklist
