McMillan Palgrave

New York Times Best Selling Author of A Paris Apartment

Three women, born generations apart.
One mysterious book that threads their lives together.
A journey of love, discovery, and truth…

I’ll See You in Paris is based on the real life of Gladys Spencer-Churchill, the Duchess of Marlborough, a woman whose life was so rich and storied it could fill several books. Nearly a century after Gladys’s heyday, a young woman’s quest to understand the legendary Duchess takes her from a charming hamlet in the English countryside to a dilapidated manse kept behind barbed wire, and ultimately, to Paris, where answers will be found at last. In the end, she not only solves the riddle of the Duchess but also uncovers the missing pieces in her own life.

At once a great love story and literary mystery, I’ll See You in Paris will entertain and delight, with an unexpected ending that will leave readers satisfied and eager for Michelle Gable’s next novel.

"Michelle Gable's 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 fiancâe 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"--
Three generations of women--Laurel; her daughter, Annie; and a relative known as the Duchess of Marlborough--face similar struggles in life, including lost loves, romance, and mystery.

I really wanted to like this -- set (at least partially) in England with elements of historical fiction and a family saga. After 5 chapters, though, I found the characters to be trite and inconsistent, and I gave up.

A recent college graduate and just engaged Anna goes to Banbury, Oxfordshire, with her mother Laurel. While her mother engages in some complicated ‘business,’ Annie finds a biography of an alleged Duchess of Marlborough who may have once lived in the town and begins some ‘research’ of her own.

Had potential, but failed for me on many levels.
