There’s darkness in the City of Light.

The Fibonacci family saved Mercy Watts’ life and now she owes them a favor. Calpurnia Fibonacci calls on Mercy to make good. When you’re dealing with a powerful mafia family, refusing isn’t an option. So Mercy travels to Paris, home of the Louvre, catacombs, and secrets, to search for the identity of a woman glimpsed for just a moment on the fashionable Rue Cler and some answers to a few family mysteries of her own. To make matters worse, Chuck and Aaron tag along and they have agendas of their own. With the mafia and the shadowy Klinefeld Group involved, finding the wife of Riley will be much more dangerous than she ever expected.

This book was great! A solid mystery with with well-defined characters and lots of 'laugh out loud' moments--even when I was sitting in the doctor's office, reading it. Best to read them in order because there are underlying mysteries that gradually unfold during the series.

Mercy is going to Paris. She should be dancing on air, but she's not. She owes a favor to mafia queen, Calpurnia Fibonacci and now Mercy must pay up. She's going there to see if Angela Riley, who was declared dead six years ago, is actually alive. How will Mercy find out when she has to bring her boyfriend Chuck? He's a St. Louis police detective. This story is filled with danger and intrigue. Mercy may look like Marilyn Monroe, but she's a smart and feisty heroine. Chuck loves Mercy, but something is bothering him that he doesn't want to share. I loved seeing their interaction. Their dialogue is lively as is their attraction. I loved the mystery and the paranormal elements. The secondary characters add to the action. A.W. Hartoin did a great job with the interwoven storylines. She merged romance and secrets from the past to create a suspenseful mystery. I loved the characters, the setting and the surprising twists and turns. The Wife Of Riley is an incredible book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mercy, Chuck and Aaron in Paris to solve two separate cases while hiding one from Chuck was a delight. Mercy's relationship with both men is special. I am looking forward to the next book and more answers on the Bleds.

Book 6 of the Mercy Watts series is the perfect package! This time out Mercy, Chuck, & of course Aaron are in Paris trying to find a disappearing wife & answers to the Bleds/Watts connection & secrets of the Klinefeld Group. The story is thrilling & complex with lots of twists, humor, action, & suspense! A.W. Hartoin immerses the reader in French history, food, & scenery making me feel like I was actually experiencing Paris. Chef Aaron is such a delightfully oddball character & in this book we get to learn more about his past. However, it seems like the more we learn about the Bleds & Watts the more the mystery deepens. While I missed The Girls & Mercy's dad we were introduced to a whole slew of new characters. Also added is a small paranormal twist with a couple of ghosts. This was a wonderful roller coaster of a story & I can't wait for book #7 to see where Mercy & company go next.
