The wait is over! The third and final instalment of the Secrets of Paris trilogy, From a Paris Balcony, is available from today.

Ella Carey‘s latest release delivers the escapism we’re all yearning for right about now.  The Secrets of Paris series is a thrilling journey through time, examining the complex lives, loves, and losses of everyday people who are in some way connected to one of the world’s most famous cities, amidst incredible moments in history.

Ella has been having an excellent month so far, with the first of these three titles, Paris Time Capsule (Bookouture), climbing the North American Kindle charts last week; the eBook peaked at no.1 in Canada and no.9 in the US!

From a Paris Balcony sees a young American woman, reeling from recent losses, uncover the life of a 19th Century Parisian courtesan, who appears to have some kind of connection to her family tree.

Heartbroken and alone, Boston art curator Sarah West is grieving the recent deaths of her parents and the end of her marriage. Ultrasensible by nature, she’s determined to stay the course to get her life back on track.

But fate has something else in mind. While cleaning out her father’s closet, she finds a letter from the famous Parisian courtesan Marthe de Florian, dated 1895. The subject? Sarah’s great-great-aunt Louisa’s death. Legend has it Louisa committed suicide…but this letter implies there’s more to that story.

Determined to learn the truth, Sarah, against her nature, impulsively flies to Paris. There she’s drawn into the world of her flatmate, the brilliant artist Laurent Chartier. As she delves deep into the glittering Belle Époque to unravel the mystery, Sarah finds that her aunt’s story may offer her exactly what she needs to open up to love again.

Following Sarah in the present day and Louisa in the 1890s, this moving novel spans more than a century to tell the stories of two remarkable women.

Ella’s masterful writing has once again left her readers enthralled:
