Purchase Link: Midnight Train to Paris (A Paris Time Travel Romance)
Country Set In: France, United States
When I was searching for books set in France I came across this series, and was immediately curious. To me it felt like a Romantic, Sci-fi, murder mystery traveling books. I enjoyed every single minute of it.
I was drawn in by the cover it has a very romantic, french vibe not to mention the Arc de Triomphe is in the back ground and something I really hope to see someday. 🙂 Hopefully someday soon.
Synopsis: When hard-hitting DC reporter Jillian Chambord learns that her twin sister, Isla, has been abducted from a luxury train traveling through the Alps, not even the threat of losing her coveted position at The Washington Daily can stop her from hopping on the next flight to France. Never mind the fact that Samuel Kelly—the sexy former CIA agent who Jillian has sworn off forever—has been assigned as the lead investigator in the case.
When Jillian and Samuel arrive in the Alps, they soon learn that their midnight train isn’t leading them to Isla, but has taken them back in time to 1937, to a night when another young woman was abducted from the same Orient Express train. Given a chance to save both women, Jillian and Samuel are unprepared for what they discover on the train that night, for the sparks that fly between them . . . and for what they’ll have to do to keep each other alive.
I will say the synopsis is correct but this book was so much more. It really had a little of everything. It had a murder mystery, time travel, romance and some serious messed up situations. There is child rape in this book. Sorry to spoil that but I feel that is important because that is a icky subject that I know makes some uncomfortable, that being said I like when authors bring icky subjects into a book, because it happens every day.
The book will make you want to travel to France with the talks of chateaus, Paris and the fast pace action in the streets.
I certainly recommend this book to anyone that is in the mood for a fast paced fun mystery that has a little time travel thrown in. Also I still want to ride a train to Paris, even though this book implies crazy stuff happens on trains 😉
