    1. On the first page, where she writes the sun had shone I rolled my eyes After a few pages of annoyingly florid prose, I almost quit But I have been recently spending my time with Tana French s Dublin Murder squad, so I wanted something light and fluffy to wash away the heartbreak of those stories, so I pressed on The best thing I can say about it is it was a quick read I can t imagine the twist was meant to be a surprise, it s telegraphed almost from the get go, but to me the surprise was that ev [...]

    2. Oh my gosh, what can I say The story started off okay Then it got stupid Then it got really silly Then it just got boring because the ending was so easy to figure out.The main character, Phaedra, was someone I doubt I d warm up to in real life since she s so perfect She goes about the family correcting everyone s faults and making them all perfect, like she is gag I wouldn t wish this book on my worst enemy I guess it s okay if you like pompous upperclass Brits who have servants doing every las [...]

    3. On the positive side, this book has a very strong sense of place the large country estate is described lovingly For many of us, the social stratum at the centre of this novel is entirely alien and the author does a good job of breathing life into the people and geography of Fairfield Park And I finished the novel Which doesn t always happen But there are a number of aspects of the book that irritated me First Phaedra As annoying a character you will be hard pressed to find Unless, of course, you [...]

    4. I normally enjoy Santa Montefiore s novels, but this particular one did nothing for me I didn t like the characters at all thought they were all whiney and bratish

    5. Gosh, I love a good book As soon as I opened The Woman from Paris, I was treated to interesting and witty characters, a multi layered plot and a wonderful setting.There are secrets, romance and family drama all woven into this novel and I happily devoured it all I lived inside these pages for a little while.Lord George Frampton is head of a well to do family in London, he dies in a mountain climbing accident in the Alps Phaedra Chancellor arrives at Frampton s funeral claiming to be his illegiti [...]

    6. Ik vond dit boek leuk, maar niet super speciaal Dit is zo een boek dat ideaal is om te lezen op het strand, of op vakantie Het is gemakkelijk, leest lekker weg maar eigenlijk gebeurt er heel weinig.De personages waren goed uitgewerkt, en de omgeving werd zo levendig beschreven Hierdoor krijg je echt het gevoel alsof je zelf deel uitmaakt van de familie Frampton.

    7. Wanneer Lord Frampton, George, overlijdt ligt het Engelse landgoed Fairfield Park er stil bij Niemand weet dat een onbekende gast voor opschudding zal zorgen.Aan het einde van de uitvaartplechtigheid meldt Phaedra, de buitenechtelijke dochter van George, zich Behalve dit nieuws blijkt ze nog eens onweerstaanbaar mooi te zijn n is ze toegevoegd aan het testament.Waarom komt de familie dit op deze manier te weten Had George haar niet eerder kunnen introduceren David, de zoon des huizes, heeft zijn [...]

    8. Yes I read this book in one day I was disappointed with where the author took the story It s was very clich , the married, older, adventurous, wealthy man has secret affair with beautiful, adventurous, much younger woman Where have I heard that story before Oh right, it s similar to my own life except my husband wasn t rich and he didn t die He left me However that being said the main focus of the story was a tale of a family living in a rigid, expected life and ultimately being disconnected in [...]

    9. I read a review in a newspaper almost a year ago about Santa Montefiore s work The review was glowing, writing lovingly of her prose and character construction.I have to say that I found myself only partly agreeing with both statements after purchasing this book While Montefiore s writing is certainly engrossing, with wonderfully descriptive albeit sometimes repetitive landscapes and enthralling characters, this book leaned as it progressed into predictable and annoying.The family the plot centr [...]

    10. Could have used 100 pages edited out, and really how many times can one author use the word frisson But sometimes it is just as enjoyable to be annoyed by a book as like a book, and this was one of those cases Very Downton Abbey ish but modern Lots of foreshadowing that led to the obvious Incredibly redundant, but not a total waste of time.

    11. I really enjoy Santa s writing style she has a great ability for getting you to connect with the characters You can really picture the setting The only reason I gave a 4 not a 5 is due to the fact I preferred The French Gardener and maybe would have liked to see of a commupence to Julius the lawyer I m definitely going to read of hers.

    12. A good, fast read that kept my attention but in the middle it lagged a bit and the outcome was predictable Characters were well draw and the use of some new words for me kept me on my toes and in my dictionary I enjoyed the setting in England and the use of English words and culture that were unique to the British.

    13. NB Title in USA is The Woman From Paris I first took an interest in this author s writing in 2001 when her first novel Meet Me Under The Umbo Tree was published I went on to read the next two as they were released The Butterfly Box and The Forget Me Not Sonata It was another five years before any of her books came my way when in 2008 I read two of her novels Last Voyage of the Valentina and The Gypsy Madonna It was to be another three years before I read two of her novels, The Swallow and The [...]

    14. Nothing is sweeter than a story with enchanting characters who reach through the pages and welcome you to their lives In The Woman from Paris, the characters and scenery sweep you into the story of the Framptoms When Lord Frampton dies in a tragic accident, his family is fragile and reeling from loss In walks Phaedra, a beautiful woman who claims to be his illegitimate daughter.When the will is read, Phaedra is included in a very intimate way she inherits the family jewels Slowly, the family is [...]

    15. This is my first book by this author, and must say that I look forward to reading by her The story opened up on a sad note, and picked up from there I was already engrossed within the first few pages, and could visualize the characters and their personalities, mood demeanor The Dowager Lady Frampton cracked me up had me literally laughing out loud on several occasions due to her snarkiness and irreverent humor somewhat reminded me of Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey as Lady Violet I admit I had su [...]

    16. The Woman From ParisThe book blurb grabbed my attention aristocrats and family secrets I was still under the influence of Dowton Abbey So I decided to read the book The story was promising in the beginning The Frampton family was shocked by the death of the head of the family and, very soon, the family discovered another shocking secret Phaedra Chancellor.Then, I lost interest I failed to connect to most of the characters Antoinette s decision to embrace Phaedra as her daughter seemed too quick [...]

    17. THE WOMAN FROM PARISSanta MontefioreHaving read several of Ms Montefiore lovely romantic family novels, I was sure that this would be just as good I wasn t disappointed, despite her tendency to fall in love with her own words and descriptions.Lord Frampton dies in a skiing accident He leaves the Frampton sapphires to a young woman who shocks the family at his funeral, claiming to be his illegitimate daughter.Despite the anger, shock and outrage the young woman manages to charm and capture the en [...]

    18. I started off really liking this story but became less enad as it progressed Despite the title it s set primarily in England at Lord Frampton s country estate After his sudden death a young woman appears at his funeral claiming to be his illegitimate daughter The reactions of his family are mixed but Phaedra s soon invited to become part of the family The widow, after her initial shock, welcomes her as a daughter with what struck me as unnatural speed Phaedra and the eldest son, David, are insta [...]

    19. This is a nice escapism read for Brit lovers The estate where the Framptons live is almost alive in its descriptions The family is interesting and the characters likeable, for the most part Anyone paying attention can figure out the plot surprise by the time they are halfway through the book And further, anyone can predict the ending even if they are not paying attention, all tied up in a happy pink bow I found the Phaedra David relationship sort of creepy, first as a sort of incestuous one and [...]

    20. Super predictable I mean, all us readers knew the truth about soooo many things, Julius, Dr, Phaedra and we were just waiting for the characters in the book to catch on.And what about the ick factor Never addressed by the main characters Despite a compliment from Julian Fellowes, this reminded me of early Penny Vincenzi, whom I used to devour Skip unless you really your sopa opera.

    21. This was plesant enough but it didnt have the same spark as her others It was a deep and emotional read to begin with but Phaedra one of the main characters got on my nerves a bit with her constant holier than thou, self help attitude Nice enough to read on a long train journey but far not my favourite of hers.

    22. The story could ve moved along at a much faster pace I enjoyed the overall plot yet it just seemed to take entirely too long to get to the good stuff Could ve been dramatically shortened to keep my attention I was sick which is the only reason the read went fast Normally this would ve taken me weeks to get through Sometimes authors need to get to the point

    23. The Frampton family are in a state of shock as Lord Frampton has died, albeit doing what he loved most, facing danger on off piste skiing, and he met his end under an avalanche So to the funeral where a beautiful young woman appears who quickly declares with the aid of the family lawyer, Julius Beecher, to be the illegitimate daughter and therefore sister to the three Frampton brothers.Antoinette Frampton doesn t know what to think, she s always been a bit of an aside to George s adventurous li [...]

    24. Book Summary Antoinette s world has fallen apart as her husband, George died in an accident He was the man she knew better than she knew herself Or at least so she thought She meets Phaedra, a girl in her early 30 s at George s funeral someone who she has never seen or met before Phaedra loved George and could not stay away from his funeral She knows what she is about to reveal to the family will change everyone s lives.What I liked about the book Well written in terms of narrative and structure [...]
