Florida transplant Georgia Lee Maxwell doesn't take to Paris at first, despite the fact that she's at least leaving a no-good man and a hated job as a society editor. Now she's a Paris correspondent, thank you very much—a dream come true for any journalist.
There's just a slight down side—she
arrives in freezing rain, gets caught in a traffic jam caused by a bomb
scare, and hates her apartment; but the real Bonjour is finding herself
face down on a museum floor during a robbery. "Killed for a boring
story!" she thinks. But as it happens, she isn't the one who dies. Three
terrifying masked gunmen shoot the unfortunate security guard.
They could have stolen all the treasures of Monte Cristo's cave, so to
speak, but it turns out they've made off with only a mirror. True, it
once belonged to the French seer Nostradamus, but it may be the museum's
least valuable item.
Does it have some prophetic ability? Does
someone know something the gendarmes don't? Here's what Georgia Lee
knows: If she finds out first, she's a journalistic hero. If she
doesn't, she's dead. From Goodreads.
This is a suspense supposedly about the Mirror of Nostradamus, but there are other things happening as well. It didn't end as I expected but that didn't matter as I basically didn't like the main character.
