Dancing with Paris is a fantastic story! I really enjoyed reading it! It’s a time-travel, mystery romance!
Claudia is given an unique opportunity to right a wrong done in a past life that will change things for the better in her present life when she wakes up in the body of Ruby Kerrigan. Ruby is a singer and dancer in a popular nightclub in Paris, the year 1959. With a silver haired “fairy-godmother” of sorts to give a little (very little) advice, Claudia has to figure out what the event she is there to change. It’s not an easy task to figure out because Ruby is a suspect in a murder investigation. To make matters worse, Claudia only has bits of Ruby's memories to help her out. She must navigate through Ruby’s life and try to make the right decision ... hopefully, she can make life better for herself and everyone involved.
Claudia is desperate to get back to 2012 where she is pregnant with a baby girl, but while in 1959, she meets Antoine Richard and falls in love with him. I found this really interesting because I couldn’t figure out how she would keep her baby in the future and keep her love in the past. (I’m one of those people who when you’re watching a movie and the characters leave a candle burning in a room after they’ve left - I worry about it. The same applied here - I kept worrying about what was going to happen to the baby!) Well done!
I love that Ruby is friends with Claudia’s grandmother in the past. Claudia gets to know what her grandmother was like when she was in her twenties! So cool! Especially, because she is very close to her grandmother in 2012.
Dancing with Paris is a unique story! I loved it! This is Juliette Sobanet’s fourth novel. She writes about what she loves most, Paris! I highly recommend reading it!
