The Paris Apartment|Review

The Paris Apartment – Published 2022

“Jess needs a fresh start. She’s broke and alone, and she’s just left her job under less than ideal circumstances. Her half-brother Ben didn’t sound thrilled when she asked if she could crash with him for a bit, but he didn’t say no, and surely everything will look better from Paris. Only when she shows up – to find a very nice apartment, could Ben really have afforded this? – he’s not there.

The longer Ben stays missing, the more Jess starts to dig into her brother’s situation, and the more questions she has. Ben’s neighbors are an eclectic bunch, and not particularly friendly. Jess may have come to Paris to escape her past, but it’s starting to look like it’s Ben’s future that’s in question.

The socialite – The nice guy – The alcoholic – The girl on the verge – The concierge

Everyone’s a neighbor. Everyone’s a suspect. And everyone knows something they’re not telling.” – Goodreads


I preordered this book and read it in two days. At the 100 page mark I posted on Instagram that I had no idea what was going on, and everyone panicked thinking I meant it was terrible. It’s not, I just truly had NO idea what happened or who did it.

This book has a lot of characters, and it takes a bit of time before you understand why there are so many and why they’re all important. It’s pretty intense, and it’ll definitely keep you guessing.

I didn’t love it as much as The Guest List, but I liked it more than The Hunting Party. It’s a quick read and there are a lot of twists and turns. Definitely worth the read.
