A novel by

 
 
An American in Paris navigates her family’s secret past and unlocks her own future, in this emotionally evocative novel by New York Times bestselling author Juliet Blackwell.

As a girl, Genevieve Martin spent the happiest summer of her life in Paris, learning the delicate art of locksmithing at her uncle’s side. But since then, living back in the States, she has become more private, more subdued. She has been an observer of life rather than an active participant, holding herself back from those around her, including her soon-to-be-ex-husband.

Paris never really left Genevieve, and, as her marriage crumbles, she finds herself faced with an incredible opportunity: return to the magical city of her youth to take over her late uncle’s shop. But as she absorbs all that Parisian culture has to offer, she realizes the city also holds secrets about her family that could change her forever, and that locked doors can protect you or imprison you, depending on which side of them you stand.

"Juliet Blackwell offers a compelling storyline with a charming protagonist and a deep well of family secrets, all gorgeously set in the City of Lights. The sights and smells of Blackwell’s Paris lingered long after I turned the last page. The Paris Key is an absorbing homage to family, friendship, and, of course, the greatest city in the world." - Michelle Gable

"A gorgeously plotted novel woven with luminescent charm, The Paris Key gleams as brightly as the city herself." - Rachael Herron

"In this witty, warm, winsome novel, Blackwell draws back the curtain on Paris’s complex past while celebrating its vibrant present. Her generation-spanning tale combines intrigue and passion with a flawless ear for language and a gift for sensory detail. If The Paris Key doesn’t make a Francophile of you, nothing will!" - Sophie Littlefield
