Lost In Paris by Betty Webb #audiobook #audiblebookreview #booktwitter #bookreview @dreamscapeaudio


Paris, 1922: Zoe Barlow knows the pain of loss. By the age of eighteen, she’d already lost her father to suicide and her reputation to an ill-fated love affair—not to mention other losses, too devastating for words. Exiled from her home and her beloved younger sister by their stepmother, she was unceremoniously dumped in Paris without a friend to help her find her way.

Four years later, Zoe has forged a new life as a painter amidst fellow artists, expats, and revolutionary thinkers struggling to make sense of the world in the aftermath of war. She’s adopted this Lost Generation as her new family, so when her dear friend Hadley Hemingway loses a valise containing all of her husband Ernest’s writings, Zoe happily volunteers to track it down. But her search for the bag keeps leading to murder victims, and Zoe must again face hard losses—this time among her adopted tribe. If she persists in her reckless quest to find the killer, the next life lost may be her own.

Pulsing with the glamour and excitement of the Jazz Age, Lost in Paris explores a young woman’s journey to redeem herself from the heartaches of her past while finding her way forward in tumultuous, unprecedented times.


Zoe has been disowned by her family in Alabama. They have just dropped her off and abandoned her in Paris. But, she makes her way and makes friends with artists and expats. She even becomes friends with Hemingway. And when Hemingway loses his valise with his latest writings, Zoe helps out and chases it down. But, she discovers a double murder and this leads to some hard times with her newfound friends.

Zoe is a sweet girl but she is also tough. And she takes no sass! But, this story is a bit slow in places. I did enjoy when Hemingway had an appearance. He is not really a nice man and the author portrays this very well.

The narrator did a great job especially with the accents. That’s a big trigger for me. But, Hope Newhouse, is splendid!

Need a murder mystery with the fabulous setting of Jazz Age Paris…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today.

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
