The Paris Affair by Pip Drysdale. (2021).
**4.5 out of 5 stars**
No matter what Audrey Hepburn might have said about the city of love, it turns out Paris is not always a good idea…
Meet Harper: she’s an art and culture writer. She is living in Paris and dreams of being a hard-hitting news reporter. She loves true crime podcasts and art galleries. She doesn’t love fake people and toxic positivity. She has special skills such as breaking out of car boots, picking locks and escaping relationships. She can lose any guy in 3 minutes flat. And she’s hot on the trail of a murderer – and the scoop of a lifetime.
That’s if the killer doesn’t catch her first.
Another excellent thriller from Pip Drysdale, who has quickly become one of my favourite authors as all of her books are such great reads. I really liked Harper who was an intelligent, feisty and cynical woman; some might say she had a harsh nature in relation to her attitude towards men but I thought given her history it was fair enough and it made for very entertaining reading haha. Fortunately for her, her interest in true crime comes in handy when she finds herself linked to a dead woman. With Paris always being marketed as the city of love, it was very interesting to learn about it’s darker side and facts such as there is on average over 1000 unidentified bodies found in France every year!
I highly recommend this intriguing thriller that you won’t want to put down, definitely binge read if you can.
