Reviews

In this fun spy romp, none other than Jacqueline Lee Bouvier is graduating from college in 1951. [S]he is thrilled when [the] deputy director of the newly established CIA offers her a special assignment in Paris. Having studied at the Sorbonne, Jackie is confident and intrigued, but when a simple defection devolves into multiple murders, she calls for backup. This highly enjoyable first [novel] offers plenty of cameo appearances by luminaries of the post-WWII social and political scenes including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Christian Dior, and Marlene Dietrich. - BooklistGreat fun! Makes you want to buy big sunglasses and fly to Paris. - Rita Mae Brown, New York Times bestselling author of the Mrs. Murphy mysteriesPart mystery, part chick lit, Paris to Die For is all fun. It manages to bring together a satisfying mystery and Cold War espionage with a lighthearted romance and gushing tour of Paris. It's full of name-dropping, with cameos from Wallis Simpson to Ian Fleming to the then-unknown Audrey Hepburn, and peppered with delightful bits of pop culture. I'm already anticipating the next book in the series. - Historical Novels ReviewJFK loved Ian Fleming's creation of James Bond so this intriguing novel may not be as far-fetched as you think. - Kitty Kelley, New York Times bestselling author of Jackie Oh!A bold book that makes you rethink one of our most beloved 20th century American icons. - Mark Medoff, Tony Award-winning playwright of Children of a Lesser GodIn her last year as an editor, Jacqueline Onassis was actually working on an espionage story that intersected with her own life at key points. I can imagine her paging through PARIS TO DIE FOR with a wicked smile. - William Kuhn, author of Reading Jackie: Her Autobiography in BooksParis to Die For is a frothy romp through the City of Light with a determined young Jackie Bouvier. It goes down with a tickle, like a fine champagne. - Rebecca Cantrell, award-winning author of A Game of LiesHaving known the real Jackie, I can say that she loved adventure--and had a fantastic sense of curiosity--and our imagined heroine here is likewise enterprising, brave, and fun to follow. - Glenn Plaskin, interviewer and author of Katie Up and Down the Hall: The True Story of How One Dog Turned Five Neighbors into a Family
