Juliette know danger, even to the point of leaving her two children in the care of their grandmother while she continues in the critical role she has played since joining the Resistance. Advanced in her role as a spy, she has no choice but to join forces with Captain Daniel Diaz, an American agent. The two must work together in order to uncover a plot being set in place by their enemy. While at first Juliette and Daniel are like oil and water, they both begin to develop strong feelings towards each other, even to the point where love begins to solidify their relationship.
Romance is not key to Juliette, especially when she receives news of the worst kind. Her children and mother are missing, even though they were being protected. Juliette’s role has been discovered and the kidnapping of those most precious to her leaves her with an ultimatum. If she does not turn traitor, her family will be lost to her forever. Save her children or save France. Determined to do both, Juliette plots a dangerous plan.
What an amazing story by Amanda Lees! Any mother could imagine Juliette’s heart breaking in a million pieces with her worry for the safety of her children. However, it is her courage. Her strength. Even her loyalty that proves her incredible character.
This powerful story was not an easy read. This was especially so when the reason behind the kidnapping led back to the horrific experiences Juliette had to deal with during her marriage. Now experiencing the worst kind of betrayal, Juliette must really dig deep to save those she loves. Meanwhile, any possible future with Daniel just might be lost forever.
For a read that will keep you turning pages until the very end, look no further than Paris at First Light. In fact, for a read just as impactful I highly recommend the first book in this incredible series, The Silence Before Dawn. Both of these fabulous stories show strong and fearless women who survive the odds while making the most difficult choices.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
