    I'm a fan of Kristin Harmel's novels. Every time I pick one up, I know I'll be getting a good story, and The Room on Rue Amlie is no exception. Like with The Sweetness of Forgetting, she set her story in France during World War II. However, this story had a different feel from Sweetn...

    This is a wonderful new book about the resistance in Paris during World War II. The characters are well written and the story is a real page turner that will keep you reading to find out how it ends. I liked the way the author started the book with an epilogue about a elderly couple...

    4 stars from me for this classic WWII story I feel like it's been a while since I read a book in this genre and it reminded of how much I enjoy books with this historical setting. This one has an interesting premise (which I read was based on a real person) of an American, Ruby, who...

    This is supposed to be historical fiction about the resistance in Paris during WWII, but in reality it's just a bad romance story using the above premise as a backdrop to tell the story. There is very little character development, and all the characters are mostly stereotypes. There is...

    I fell in love with the prologue of this book because it was so beautifully written and heart wrenching. I hoped the rest of the book was like that, but it fell sort of flat. I didn?t really connect with any of the characters, and they all seemed to have swallowed a book of clichs ...
