Quietly starving, and dreading another cold Paris winter, Maud is hired by Christian Morel as companion to his beautiful, young sister, Sylvie. But Sylvie, Maud discovers, is not quite the darling she seems. She has a secret addiction to opium and an ominous air of intrigue. As Maud is drawn further into the Morels' world of elegant luxury, their secrets become hers. And before the New Year arrives, a greater deception will plunge her into the darkness that waits beneath this glittering city of light.
Set against the backdrop of the Great Flood, The Paris Winter is a dark and powerful tale of deceit and revenge from a masterful storyteller.

If you love period dramas that transport you to another place and time this is definitely a great summer read. Be warned though, not a lot of action or plot happens in the first half of the book however I thoroughly enjoyed the authors depiction of the time and place as well as the exploration of the characters. The characters start out as stereotypes but as we learn more about them they are revealed to have great depth and it was interesting to explore their motivations.
