Years later she tracks her down to an insane asylum where Camille tells her an explosive secret - can their friendship survive the betrayal?

Paris Kiss Reviews

It will haunt you." - Sara Sheridan "A beautifully written evocation of the Parisian art scene of the late 1800s - it is a mesmerising canvas of love, friendship and betrayal." Laura Marney "Jessie's adventures as a woman artist in 1880s Paris completely captivated me. A wonderful story." - Carmen Reid
