REVIEW: THE PARIS APARTMENT, BY LUCY FOLEY

Jess needs a fresh start. She’s broke and alone, and she’s just left her job under less than ideal circumstances. Her half-brother Ben didn’t sound thrilled when she asked if she could crash with him for a bit, but he didn’t say no, and surely everything will look better from Paris. Only when she shows up – to find a very nice apartment, could Ben really have afforded this? – he’s not there.
The longer Ben stays missing, the more Jess starts to dig into her brother’s situation, and the more questions she has. Ben’s neighbors are an eclectic bunch, and not particularly friendly. Jess may have come to Paris to escape her past, but it’s starting to look like it’s Ben’s future that’s in question.

The socialite – The nice guy – The alcoholic – The girl on the verge – The concierge
Everyone’s a neighbor. Everyone’s a suspect. And everyone knows something they’re not telling.

Jess is trying to find her brother Ben, after she arrives at The Paris Apartment and finds him missing. She is amazed at how big and beautiful it is, and she is curious about how he can afford it. She is also curious about the people living in the apartment complex, who appear to be part of a dysfunctional family.

As she follows the clues, she learns that Ben was on a quest to find answers to what was happening with this strange family.

But what happened to him? Was Jess able to find him, or will he be lost to her?
A story that could have been compelling but was not. There were too many strange twists in the road. 3.5 stars.
