Special Feature: The Paris Model by Alexandra Joel

Can we talk about how stunning this cover it before we even start talking about the book? This cover caught my eye and instantly made me want to read it. I love the colors and of course the Eiffel Tower in the background only enhanced the beauty of the cover.

I also thought it captured the essence of this novel. This is a novel featuring Christian Dior and I think it absolutely does the famous designer justice. The cover just reminds me of a call back to a more elegant time and I can’t tell you how much I love it.

This book is out now and if you love historical fiction with a bit of romance (like me) then you are going to love this book or at least you need to get it on your radar! I am reading it a little later this year but I wanted to get the info out to you now because it came out this week and you don’t want to miss it!


Sometimes you have to lose everything to find yourself … A stunning novel of love, betrayal and family secrets for all fans of Fiona McIntosh and Natasha Lester. After a devastating discovery, Grace Woods leaves her vast Australian sheep station and travels to tumultuous post-war Paris in order to find her true identity.

While working as a glamorous mannequin for Christian Dior, the world’s newly acclaimed emperor of fashion, Grace mixes with counts and princesses, authors and artists, diplomats and politicians.

But when Grace falls for handsome Philippe Boyer she doesn’t know that he is leading a double life, nor that his past might inflict devastating consequences upon her. As she is drawn into Philippe’s secret world of international espionage, Grace discovers both the shattering truth of her origins – and that her life is in peril.

Based on a true story, The Paris Model is a tale of glamour, family secrets and heartbreak that takes you from the Australian outback to the exclusive salons of Paris. (summary from Goodreads)
