From the internationally bestselling author of The French Gardener comes a sweeping and sophisticated romance about an aristocratic English family shocked by the revelations of a beautiful stranger from Paris.

When Lord Frampton dies in a skiing accident, a beautiful young woman named Phaedra appears at his funeral, claiming to be the Lord’s illegitimate daughter. In his will, Lord Frampton has left the priceless Frampton suite of sapphires to this interloper, confirming her claim—and outraging his family.

Eventually, however, Phaedra’s sweet nature thaws the frosty relationships. She becomes the daughter that Antoinette Frampton never had—and a wise and compassionate granddaughter to the formidable Dowager Lady Frampton. But when an attraction grows between Phaedra and the eldest son, David, it seems an impossible love, blocked by their blood connection and the fury of one family member—who is determined to expose Phaedra as a fraud.

Filled with the luscious scenery and enchanting characters her fans adore, Santa Montefiore’s The Woman from Paris is an unforgettable story about family, forgiveness, and the power of love.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debdanz | 2/19/2014

    " Could have used 100+ pages edited out, and really how many times can one author use the word "frisson?" But sometimes it is just as enjoyable to be annoyed by a book as like a book, and this was one of those cases. Very "Downton Abbey-ish" but modern. Lots of foreshadowing that led to the obvious. Incredibly redundant, but not a total waste of time. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/10/2014

    " Definitely a fluff book with some parts that were very predictable but one shocker that I didn't see coming. Normally that is rare in a fluff book. If you are looking for a light easy read, with very likable characters, I'd definitely recommend this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Miller | 1/28/2014

    " Loved the suspense is she/isn't she, will they/won't they! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne Dillon | 1/19/2014

    " Good read with some nice twists. Santa Montefiore never disappoints! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 1/15/2014

    " I loved Santa's first book 'Meet me under the Ombu tree' probably cause this is about young love, but her latest book 'the summer house' was very disappointing. I felt like I was constantly waiting for something to happen and it felt like the central characters were all over the age of 60. Too much description of trees and surrounds instead of taking me on a journey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/9/2014

    " It did not match my memory of the French Gardener, which I really loved. "

    " An enjoyable quick read. "

    " I saw the big plot point coming, and the ending was wrapped up too neatly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Rogers | 10/2/2013

    " Nice enough holiday read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Hauer | 8/10/2013

    " Charming and thought-provoking. Title and especially cover are not true indicators of the substance within. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 6/13/2013

    " Enjoyable read. Had it figured out fairly soon but worth the read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 5/26/2013

    " another gripping story that stays with you long after you finish the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey | 5/13/2013

    " I enjoyed the book and thought that it was an interesting premise. A bit predictable but I really did not care. If you like Downton Abby, this is a good choice for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 3/24/2013

    " Although quite predictable, I enjoyed the Frampton family saga. "

    " I normally enjoy Santa Montefiore's novels, but this particular one did nothing for me! I didn't like the characters at all - thought they were all whiney and bratish! "
