Product description

Product Description

New York–based photographer Cat Jordan is ready to begin a new life with her successful, button-down boyfriend. But when she learns that she’s inherited the estate of a complete stranger—a woman named Isabelle de Florian—her life is turned upside down.

Cat arrives in Paris to find that she is now the owner of a perfectly preserved Belle Époque apartment in the ninth arrondissement, and that the Frenchwoman’s family knew nothing about this secret estate. Amid these strange developments, Cat is left with burning questions: Who was Isabelle de Florian? And why did she leave the inheritance to Cat instead of her own family?

As Cat travels France in search of answers, she feels her grasp on her New York life starting to slip. With long-buried secrets coming to light and an attraction to Isabelle de Florian’s grandson growing too intense to ignore, Cat will have to decide what to let go of, and what to claim as her own.

Revised edition: This edition of Paris Time Capsule includes editorial revisions.

This was a really good book. I didn't realise until after I had read it that it was based on a true story. Recommend.

4.5 out of five. Wow. Just wow. This was an absolutely gorgeous read and from a debut author no less.

I saw a profile of Ella Carey on Nas Dean's blog, Romance Book Paradise,a couple of weeks ago and after reading the premise for The Paris Time Capsule and loving the cover I decided to give it a go. I remembered reading a newspaper article about the apartment a couple of months back and loved that someone had taken it and used it for inspiration.

Ms. Carey has certainly done the story justice. I won't go into plot because any other review here on Goodreads will take you through that but what I will tell you is that Ella Carey made me feel like I was standing in Paris, in that apartment.

She's got a talent for interweaving setting and characterization that is simply captivating. I was hooked. It's rare I find a book that I don't want to finish because I was enjoying it so much but this is one of them. If this was her debut, I can't wait to read the next one.

I began to read these words on a whim expecting a "girlie" book. Not only was I wrong, I couldn't put it down. Hours later, mystery solved, I am wanting to follow in the footsteps of our heroine. Superb story, beautifully written.

THE PARIS TIME CAPSULE is April 2014 release by author Ella Carey.

Catherine Jordan receives a package from a lawyer in Paris. It states that she had inherited something and enclosed she finds a key. She is intrigued by the idea of an inheritance but knows it could be something really small. She knows that her grand-mother used to live in Paris in her wild youth.

So she has to go to Paris to find out the truth as the lawyer refused to divulge the truth of her inheritance to her over the phone. What she finds in Paris astounds her because she has inherited the beautiful and mysterious Isabelle de Florian’s legacy, her apartment full of old, unique and antique treasures. Among them a very valuable painting of Isabelle’s grandmother Marthe de Florian, a courtesan of the high class. And the apartment is full of love letters from the very powerful and wealthy men.

She is not sure that she is the rightful heir when another heir turns up. She is all for giving it all up to Loic Archer and his mother, the true heirs. But they refuse to take her inheritance. They just wanted to find out why Isabelle kept this a secret. She had so much wealth yet she lived a very poor life. Loic’s mother cannot reconcile to the fact that she was brought up in poverty while her mother had all this wealth stashed away. And the main reason…why Cat Jordan as the heir? So Cat has to find out the truth for them as well as for herself. Then she embarks on a fascinating journey of discovery. Unearthing the truth also brings her self-discovery and what she wants in her life.

THE PARIS TIME CAPSULE is an intriguing story. A reader would get hooked from the first page and would keep turning the pages till late at night, trying to unravel the mystery this story is.

Who knew that one letter could send you on an adventure through time?
When Cat receives a letter informing her that she has inherited an apartment from a stranger; she takes a life changing trip to Paris to discover this stranger.
Based on a real apartment in Paris, this work was the perfect combination of mystery and romance - invoking a writing style that was reminiscent of Kate Morton.
The book is based on an intriguing discovery of the Paris apartment of Marthe de Florian, a courtesan during the Belle Époque. The apartment was abandoned during World War II, however payments for the apartment continued until she died in 2010 when it was finally rediscovered after decades untouched. Entering the apartment with its beautifully preserved, luxurious interior is like taking a step back in time.
This is a fascinating story; it was hard to put the book down. The author creates a beautifully vivid atmosphere. You can smell the stale air, the way the dust tickles in your throat and you’re mesmerised by all you see inside just as the main character Cat would have been when she first opened the door of the apartment.
When she meets Isabella’s grandson Loic, he tells Cat that the family knew nothing about the apartment. Cat wonders who Isabella de Florian was and why she has inherited the apartment instead of the Isabella’s family.
When Cat and Loic travel through the South of France, it feels like you are there with them. The characters were complex but true to life.
Everything about this book was simply magical, the vividly described backdrops, the remarkable characters, the mysteries being unraveled, the romance, everything blended incredibly well by the author.
If you enjoy a mixture of historical, literary fiction with a touch of romance and a bit of mystery you will love this book. I thoroughly recommend it.

I began reading this book on holidays recently, and continued it through the plane trip home. It had me turning the pages like few other books that I've read recently.
I'd heard a little about the background to the story: a true story involving a locked up Parisian apartment and a Boldini painting, and Paris Time Capsule has been on my reading list for a while.
It didn't disappoint, outside of a couple of things almost 90% into the story.
I didn't enjoy the 'letter' retelling the story of events regarding Isabelle et al.
At times I got a bit confused trying to keep track of who was related to who, and where Cat sat in the line of descendants/friends/confidants of Isabelle.
I also found the final 'reason' we are given for the break-up of Cat's engagement too convenient and this meant that for me, the happily ever after didn't quite give me the 'aaah' swoon I would have liked.
But for 90% of the book - I loved it, and I'd recommend it as an intriguing read.
