Married life for Grace Monroe has been quickly becoming dull, Grace has always wanted something more than just being a house wife. Things become worse when she finds out that her husband may have cheated on her, but things about to become even more strange when she is contacted by a lawyer about a will from a woman named Eva d’Orsey. A woman Grace has never met has not only left her a property but also a huge sum of money wrapped up in stocks.
Leaving her home life behind Grace travels to Paris from her home in England to take care of the will but she quickly finds out that there is more there than she thought. Now with the help of her lawyer Grace begins to unravel the great life of this mystery woman and her connection to Grace. What seemed like a mistake before is quickly starts to come full circle and begins to change everything Grace knew about her life. Grace must decide does the accept what was given to her as far as the knowledge she has learned and the riches left to her. Whatever she decides Grace knows one thing....her life will never be the same again.
Thoughts: There were some minor errors in the writing and the story left some questions unanswered but besides all that this book was a very elegant read. I love the adventurous life of Eva d'Orsey and I found myself enjoying her story more than Grace's but never the less both stories weaved together beautifully.
