Passing Love by Jacqueline E. Luckett

Nicole-Marie Handy has loved all things French since she was a child. After the death of her best friend, determined to get out of her rut of ordinary living and experience something new, she goes to Paris, leaving behind work, ailing parents and a proposal from her married lover. While there, Nicole chances upon an old photo of her father—lovingly inscribed, in his hand, to a woman Nicole has never heard of.

What starts as a vacation for Nicole quickly becomes an investigation into her relationship to this mystery woman. Moving back and forth in time between the sparkling Paris of today and the jazz-fueled city filled with expatriates in the 1950s, PASSING LOVE is the story of two women dealing with love lost, secrets, and betrayal . . . and how the City of Lights may hold all of the answers.

I really enjoyed this book but I have a working knowledge of French. Someone that does not understand French may not enjoy it as much because no translation is offered when French is used. I do not think the inability to translate the French phases and small conversations detracted from the story. I do think that since I know some French and understood a good portion of it, it might have been more appealing to me.

Nice read-brings Paris to having a grown and sexy main character and the author adds the perfect amount of jaw dropping twists to keep the story interesting.

Nicole Hardy’s story initially seems to follow that of most—she has a dream that life tells her must be deferred. Rather than put off her heart’s desire to appease another she follows through with the deathbed pledge made to her best friend and travels to Paris. Her mind is filled with the adventures she will have. What she didn’t count on was the chance discovery of a picture of her father in a photo shop, or that discovery leading her into a world of long ago. Most of all, Nicole had no idea that her unselfish indulgence would uncover a secret that would change her world. Passing Love is a well-written and compelling read that combines the elements of family secrets with old world richness and a first class tour of Paris.
