In a tale of friendship, self-discovery, and love, three women running away from their lives become unlikely friends in a beautiful house in the heart of Paris.
Lost in France, a country she mistrusts, among French people she hardly understands, Annie has trouble venturing away from home since the death of her husband. And since home happens to be a small jewel of a house nestled in the heart of Paris, why would she ever want to? But when bankruptcy threatens her beloved house, her one anchor in life, Annie has no choice but to find renters, and quick.
Leave it to someone socially phobic to phrase a want ad in all the wrong ways. With shimmering promises of ‘Starting over in Paris’ –– a concept she has no intention of applying to her own life–– Annie attracts tenants with the kind of baggage that doesn’t fit in suitcases. A long-legged, cool-headed ex model (everything Annie is definitely not) on the run from her abusive husband, a frail young woman harboring a possible death wish, a mysterious French artist, and an infuriating blue-blooded French man soon threaten Annie’s way of life in ways she never anticipated.
But when Annie finds herself reluctantly yet actively engaged in the rescue of her tenants, she discovers that she might just save herself in the process.
What readers recently said about Hidden in Paris
“This book sucked me in. The central characters are warm and likable, it is a relief to read something well written that doesn't dwell in dark place. Corine Gantz is a really good story teller, I wanted to know how it all turns out and at the same time didn't want to skip ahead and miss any part.”

“This is not my usual genre of book but I have to say I did enjoy the friendships these 3 very different women developed. It is true you can find some very wonderful people that become your extended family if you just open yourself up to them. I enjoyed the strangers who became friends & then realized they meant more to each other than any of them had ever thought possible…”
