3.75 out of 5 stars

Fun, but ultimately too flawed for a higher rating. I had a great time with this novel - it's one of the few historical fiction novels I would term a "romp" - but wasn't blind to its flaws. Fans of Moran's previous novels will find a lot to enjoy with her latest French offering.

Review to come.
