I'll See You in Paris winds together the lives of three women born generations apart, but who face similar struggles of love and heartbreak. After losing her fiance in the Vietnam War, nineteen-year-old Laurel Haley takes a job in England, hoping the distance will mend her shattered heart. Laurel expects the pain might lessen but does not foresee the beguiling man she meets or that they'll go to Paris, where the city's magic will take over and alter everything Laurel believes about love. Thirty years later, Laurel's daughter Annie is newly engaged and an old question resurfaces: who is Annie's father and what happened to him? Laurel has always been vague about the details and Annie's told herself it doesn't matter. But with her impending marriage, Annie has to know everything. Why won't Laurel tell her the truth? The key to unlocking Laurel's secrets starts with a mysterious book about an infamous woman known as the Duchess of Marlborough. Annie's quest to understand the Duchess, and therefore her own history, takes her from a charming hamlet in the English countryside, to a decaying estate kept behind barbed wire, and ultimately to Paris where answers will be found at last.

Review Text

"Plot-master Gable's affection for hidden treasures emerges again in her second absorbing novel. Readers are kept guessing 'til the end in this sweet story of love, mystery, art, literature, and Paris. As complex and moving as Naomi Wood's Mrs. Hemingway and Liz Trenow's The Forgotten Seamstress." -Booklist

"Gable (A Paris Apartment) writes an engaging story, and both worlds-Annie's in 2001 and Pru's in 1973-are easy to slide into. Readers will root for both women as they uncover family secrets and discover hidden aspects of themselves. Readers of Kate Morton and those who enjoy family-centered mysteries will approve highly of this book." -Library Journal

"Gable has crafted another page-turner of a good read, filled with history, mystery and a dash of romance. This is the sort of fun, escapist read that is beloved by books clubs. There are characters to love, characters to hate, enticing settings and a requisite amount of plot twists." -Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Michelle Gable . . . elegantly navigates the narratives of the generations, making each set of characters complex and likable."-Richmond Times Dispatch

"Gable's novel provides a wonderful, highly literate mystery . . . stories within stories, an almost Wuthering Heights narrative complexity."-The Roanoke Times

"Gable (A Paris Apartment, 2014) tells an engaging story of a fascinating, largely forgotten historical figure against the backdrop of two fledgling romances." -Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Michelle Gable

"Compelling and well-written."-Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Gable's prose is fresh and emotionally complex."-Sophie Littlefield, national bestselling author

"An engaging story of a fascinating, largely forgotten historical figure against the backdrop of two fledgling romances."-Kirkus Reviews
