Not bad considering few facts are known about the main characters. Kristi & Abby Tabby
This was a fairly good historical novel about Paris in WW2. The marriage between a French husband and an American woman was interesting, the fact that they were both resisting the Nazi's without telling each other was interesting. The name dropping of Hemingway, Gatsby, etc was more of a distraction than pertinent to moving the story along. If you want to read really good historical fiction in this genre read Pamela Jenoff's books or start with "Lilac Girls".
I received an advanced copy of this title through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. The Mistress of the Ritz is a wonderful read with complex characters in a beautiful setting, The Ritz hotel in Paris during a horrific time in history, WW II. There are many secrets, among the guests, staff and especially the Manager of the Ritz, Claude and his wife Blanche. I loved the character development of Claude, Blanche and the surrounding guests and staff. The storyline was intriguing and many times I did not want to put the book down! If you like historical fiction set during WW II with strong characters, this title is for you.
