Hidden in Paris by Corine Gantz

Lost in France, a country she mistrusts, among French people she hardly understands, Annie has trouble venturing away from home since the death of her husband. And since home happens to be a small jewel of a house nestled in the heart of Paris, why would she ever want to? But when bankruptcy threatens her beloved house, her one anchor in life, Annie has no choice but to find renters, and quick.

Leave it to someone socially phobic to phrase a want ad in all the wrong ways. With shimmering promises of 'Starting over in Paris' -- a concept she has no intention of applying to her own life--Annie attracts tenants with the kind of baggage that doesn't fit in suitcases. A long-legged, cool-headed ex model (everything Annie is not) on the run from her abusive husband, a frail young woman harboring a possible death wish, a mysterious French artist, and an infuriating blue-blooded French man soon threaten Annie's way of life in ways she never anticipated.

But when Annie finds herself reluctantly yet actively engaged in the rescue of her tenants, she discovers that she might just save herself in the process.

I really enjoyed this book! The characters are all interesting, the setting in Paris was great, and the food references were delicious. You would never know this was independently published.

I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting to see how people from totally different walks of life could come together and help each other. A little comedy a little romance and a lot about life.

As an editor, I was surprised when I finished reading the novel that this is a self-published work. Well done. It's a light read that doesn't end in a neat package with a bow. These are real people leading untidy lives and I rooted for them, flaws and all.

I thought this was a good book, but it moved very slowly, with too many details in the wrong places. I would have loved to learn more about the characters lives before they retreated to Paris.

I wanted to say that the author deals with the subject of domestic violence with a kind of amused disdain that I have never encountered from a female author. She also writes about anorexia with a callousness that is unforgiveable. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
