  • Absorbing, intense, and pacey!

    The Black Swan of Paris is a suspenseful, thrilling tale set in Paris during WWII that takes us into the life of Genevieve Dumont a beautiful, Parisian performer who uses her charisma, fame, and desirability to acquire crucial information from high-ranking Nazis that will not only aid Allied Forces and the Resistance but also provide her with the intelligence needed to rescue her recently captured mother from the hands of the ruthless enemy. The prose is descriptive and tense. The characters are committed, supportive, and courageous. And the plot is a compelling mix of life, love, loss, secrets, passion, heartbreak, betrayal, danger, tragedy, survival, friendship, and war. Overall, The Black Swan of Paris is an emotive, action-packed, gripping tale by Robards that transports you to another time and place and immerses you so thoroughly into the feelings, lives, and personalities of the characters you can’t help but be fully invested and enthralled.

  • a compelling read

    I received a free electronic ARC of this novel from Netgalley, Karen Robards, and Harlequin - MIRA. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this novel of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. I highly recommend this historical jewel to those who enjoy a rich, historical novel, stories set in France in World War II, or romance novels. Karen Robards doesn't ever disappoint. The Black Swan of Paris is a remarkable tale with fully formed characters, and accurate and picturesque WWII background, plus a story that is fully-charged to keep you on the edge of your chair. Even the maid, Berthe Krawiek plays an important part in this tale of espionage and war, and I loved the singer Genevieve Dumont and Max Bonet of the French underground - or is he? Emmanuelle Granville - Emmy - and her mother Baroness Lillian de Rocheford play important and essential roles in this tale, as does Otto. This is a book you cannot put down until the very last word is read.
