  • A Captivating Story

    I remember when news of this apartment broke about ten years ago and images of its amazing contents that had been left undisturbed since World War II. This apartment captured the imagination of many, but none more so than Ella Carey who was inspired to write three novels based around this fantastic discovery. Paris Time Capsule is the first of the trilogy and is a delightful blend of fact and fiction. When Cat Jordan receives a parcel from Paris containing a key, she is unable to grasp that she has been left an apartment in Paris. Cat travels to Paris at the urging of the solicitor, leaving behind her fiancé and her job in a photographic studio. None of her questions regarding the inheritance are answered to her satsifaction. She only knows that the connection is through her grandmother, which doesn't explain why Isabelle de Florian would leave property to Cat's family and not her own. Cat is surprised when Isabelle de Florian's grandson, Loic Archer, arrives when she is about to view the apartment. The solicitor had assured her that there were no other claimants. Now that relatives have come forward, Cat believes she has no claim to the inheritance, but Loic disagrees citing that his mother will respect his grandmother's wishes. With Cat offering to share or hand over the apartment and its treasures, and Loic's mother determined not to accept Cat's generosity, it seems that they have reached an impasse until Loic's mother asks Cat to delve into the mystery. Not all the family is happy with Cat's decision to do this, and Loic, although he believes things are better left alone, agrees to help. Spending so much time together it is inevitable that Cat and Loic become more than friends. Complicating the issue is Cat's fiancé who insists she come home as they have a wedding to plan, but she is reluctant to return to New York until she uncovers the mystery. So fielding telephone calls from New York regarding wedding arrangements and fighting her feelings for Loic, Cat follows the trail of Isabelle de Florian to uncover a sad but amazing tale. Paris Time Capsule is a captivating story from Ella Carey, taking the reader back to the grand times of the Belle Epoch and the dangerous and uncertain times of the Nazi occupation. Not only does she deliver a heart warming romance, but also an intriguing mystery and a plausible explanation for the abandonment of this treasure-filled apartment. A high point of this novel, thanks to Carey's vivid descriptions, is the moment that Cat opens the door to the apartment. The reader shared Cat's wonderment and incredulity of this Aladdin's cave, right down to the smell of musty air tinged with the scent of stale perfume, and the excitement of discovering that Boldini portrait of Marthe de Florian, the original owner of the apartment. Overall, this was a quick and very entertaining read, which will appeal to readers of romantic fiction who also enjoy mysteries with links the past.

  • Paris Time Capsule

    Paris Time Capsule by Ella Carey was beautifully written. Cat's unexpected inheritance takes her on a journey deep into her family's past and exposes secrets hidden away for a lifetime. It all begins with a letter. Although I wonder if anyone today would jump on a plane to Paris to claim an estate from someone they didn't know existed, it played to my imagination of long-lost heirs. Cat has inherited a lavish apartment that seems to have been untouched since 1940. Full of antiques and treasures, and covered in dust and dirt, Cat falls deeper into the mystery. But there's always more than we first expect. Isabelle has a family - and she never told them about the apartment. No one understands why - and I didn't understand why they were so set on not claiming it once they found out about it. While I found it nice they wanted to follow Isabelle's last wishes, I don't quite understand why they didn't take the estate when Cat said she didn't want it. But I guess then we wouldn't have had a story. Cat digs deep into history, uncovering more and more strange information on Isabelle and her past. She was a fascinating woman that lived through a lot during the war. Fleeing from the Nazi occupation, there isn't much of a paper trail to follow. I was quite surprised when Cat found the last clue and solved the mystery. All the loose ends were tied up nicely in a way that was a little larger than life, but still very believable. It maintained the slight fairy tale atmosphere without going too far. And the bit of a love story along the way sure didn't hurt. **I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**

  • Majestic storytelling! Historically factual!

    A package comes in the mail with an old key and a letter? A mystery is already afoot for Cat because the letter is from a Paris attorney! It is claiming her grandmother is to receive something from a lady she had never heard of from either her grandmother nor her mother! Her family members have passed away and they are no help and no clues at the house. Who was this mystery woman and what was she going to find when she crossed over the ocean? This book is truly a remarkable story and a journey for Cat! It has a lot of wonderful drama and romance! The author has given us historical facts and taken the plot into a majestic dimension that just unfolds at the right moments that keep you wanting to turn the pages! I would definitely recommend this book! I received an advanced copy from NetGalley and these are my willingly given thoughts and opinions.
