  Good Thursday all , I hope your week is going well .I woke up to fog as thick as pea soup this morning, hope you guys are better weather wise . Today I have a brand new author to me who I met on a cool app. Let me introduce you to Hannah Byron and her epic world war 2 love story THE PARISIAN SPY ( A Resistance Girl novel book 3)

                           BOOK BLURB 

  Paris, 1939

The most sought-after woman in the French Resistance.

War is coming, but Océane Bell is focused on her studies. She enrolls at Sorbonne Medical School in Paris and begins working at a local hospital, and keeps out of politics.

That is until she meets Jean-Jacques Riveau. He is a passionate and talented artist. But when the Nazis take Paris, Jean-Jacques abandons his art to join the Resistance movement.

Océane tries to stay out of it, but when Jean-Jacques is arrested by the Gestapo, she has to do something. 

Dieter Von Stein, the cruel, enigmatic head of the Paris Gestapo, is in need of a personal physician. Océane sees her opportunity and takes it, figuring she’ll be able to use her new position to find out where her lover is being kept and rescue him.

Her new boss, however, has other plans...for Jean-Jacques and for Océane. A dangerous game ensues, and there can only be one winner.

Can Océane outsmart Dieter Von Stein? Or will the game be up for both her and her lover?

                      MY REVIEW 
  Oceane is a sweet girl who at the the time is having a crisis should she become a doctor or should she be an artist . When she is sent to live with uncle and when she decides to finish her doctor's degree . She starts working at the local hospital as she studies at the Sorbonne medical school . Until the day her life is turned upside down and a man who will steal her heart walks in and a war starts .  Oceane is swept up in the resistance and what she can do to find her love .Jean-Jacques has been taken by the Nazis. She is swept into the Nazi world by becoming Dieter Von Stein 's personal doctor and trying to find out where JJ is . With Dieter's plans are different and tease Oceane with little tidbits about JJ. Oceane needs to escape and get back to her family but will she be able to get out and back to France or will she get swallowed up in the resistance . 

  This is a story that has it all intrigue , romance and danger . The characters are so well written and complex . Oceane is a young woman who at the beginning is a naive student trying to figure out her life. Boy does she grow up fast through the book we see her become a very strong woman. She is passionate and very strong willed when it comes to her family and JJ . She truly grew up fast . JJ is an artist who is more then just an artist , he is a passionate man who loves with his whole heart . He opens up a world of passion in Oceane and helps her grow. There are so many characters that come into Oceane's life that help her through the wages of the occupation . 

  This is a book that once you start you can't stop . I was totally engrossed and was turning pages well into the night . The author has a writing style that takes you to the edge of your seat and keeps you there .  Her characters are so well written and complex and they grow through out the book . The story is well thought out and really thought provoking . You will get transported back and be right in the action . I am usually not really into historical fiction but this author changed my mind . I truly enjoyed this story and can't wait to read other books from this author. So if you want a good historical romance check it out .
