Two Americans in Nazi-occupied Paris.
A war divides them. A bookstore unites them.
Today I’m pleased to reveal the cover for my upcoming novel, Until Leaves Fall in Paris, which is scheduled to release from Revell Books on February 1, 2022. This is the second of three standalone novels, each following Americans living in Nazi Europe before and during World War II.
Until Leaves Fall in Paris is now available for pre-order at Baker Book House , Amazon, and Barnes & Noble, and will be available on other sites soon. Pre-orders for the e-book and audiobook will be available at a later date.
Today I’m giving away TEN paperback copies of Until Leaves Fall in Paris, to be mailed in late January 2022.
Until Leaves Fall in Paris
As the Nazis march toward Paris in 1940, American ballerina Lucie Girard buys her favorite English-language bookstore to allow the Jewish owners to escape. Lucie struggles to run Green Leaf Books due to oppressive German laws and harsh conditions, but she finds a way to aid the resistance by passing secret messages between the pages of her books.
Widower Paul Aubrey wants nothing more than to return to the States with his little girl, but the US Army convinces him to keep his factory running and obtain military information from his German customers. As the war rages on, Paul offers his own resistance by sabotaging his product and hiding British airmen in his factory. After they meet in the bookstore, Paul and Lucie are drawn to each other, but she rejects him when she discovers he sells to the Germans. And for Paul to win her trust would mean betraying his mission.
Come to the streets of occupied Paris to discover whether love or duty will prevail.
