Painshade
This is an almost perfectly told tale of middle-aged marital ennui set against a backdrop of American upper-middle-class angst in the world of contemporary expatriate Paris. The characters are all exquisitely drawn archetypes except for Daphne, the amourouse errant who is so strikingly different and whose presence is easily seen as a discordant note. Her entrance into the other characters' lives sends these lives off onto new trajectories.

One can imagine a spicier ending, of the heroine making a more daring choice. But then this would become a novel about middle-age breakup. But I think this is a beautiful novel about a couple finding themselves again, the coming together as the foundations of the relationship reassert themselves. Possibly this dimension could have been made more poignant, more dramatic--but it does have a high degree of verisimilitude. If you like Paris, you will like this novel.

This is the best novel I've read in quite awhile.I didn't give it the extra star only because it was a bit slow-moving. I really felt like I was in Paris. Having never been there, I don't know if the descriptions were accurate, but I got the feel of Paris life. Some said the plot was predictable--well, maybe so, but you didn't know quite how it was going to go until near the end. I liked the main character, Annie, and was rooting for her the whole book. It was enjoyable and I looked forward to getting back to it to see what would happen next. I would read any new novels by this author. I enjoyed her style of writing and thought she did a good job of character development for the most part. One character, Daphne, was a bit weird, but then I guess she was supposed to be. I would recommend this book.

I really enjoyed reading this book en route to France. I don't want to give anything away, but as one reviewer commented, 'it is predictable.' But that didn't take away from it for me. What WAS predictable was the ending. I was enormously disappointed because I expected more from the author by that point. Still, it was an enjoyable read.

As a confirmed Francophile, I'm always on the look out for both fiction and non-fiction books about Paris.

This one did not disappoint! For once, a realistic main character. Not one with the stiletto heels, high power job, looking for Mr. Right while romping in every bed available.

Davis's prose was smooth and enjoyable. Her characters and plot were believable and she wrapped up the ending in a timely fashion that left the reader satisfied.

I look forward to more novels from this author.

The best word to describe this book is drivel. The characters are shallow and the plot predictable. We have lived in Paris and I love reading all types of books set there from historical novels to mysteries to culinary adventures. Despite the main character allegedly having lived in Paris for 20years it seemed very superficial without a sense of the rhythm of the city. This is just bad chic lit midlife crisis junk. The only positive is the editor did a god job so it is a quick read.

Every now and then I need to read a good book about Paris. This is a good Paris "fix", in my opinion. I read it and passed it on to others who also love Paris. This book is not "great" literature, but it does capture Paris. This novel will probably not appear in any future volume of the Norton Anthology of World Literature, but I still liked reading it.

I bought this book for Christmas for a friend of mine who loves Paris. I've never been to Paris. It was such a great deal and the description intrigued me so I bought myself a copy too. The descriptions of Paris are just as I would imagine it. The author gives you a great sense of what it would be like to be an American living in Paris. The culture, the scenery, the traditions. The story was very rivetting as well. I enjoyed this book from beginning to the very last page.
For a first-time novel, this effort is to be commended. Regardless of the fact that the plot is predictable, it is handled with grace and sensitivity. Very intimate knowledge of daily life in Paris, which was part of its charm. I would recommend it to any Francophile.
