A Tryst in Paris is a work of fiction in the historical fiction, sci-fi, and romance subgenres, and it forms the opening novel to The Carousel Time Traveler Book. It is suitable for the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Anne Armistead. When Mirabelle Montgomery finds herself swept into the time travel vortex of the Luxembourg Carousel in Paris, she is transported to the year 1900. Her mission is to restore the fate of a man whose life has gone awry. As Mirabelle meets the captivating Jacques Thibaut, a once-respected police detective accused of plotting against the government, she believes he is the man she must help. Their growing connection kindles passion, but her presence in the past jeopardizes everything, as Jacques' destiny does not include her. Can she complete her mission and return to her own time?
Author Anne Armistead has crafted a truly delightful journey through time, weaving together the charm of the golden age of Paris and the excitement of unexpected romance. I was really impressed with the close attention paid to narrative detail and emotional depth for Mirabelle's character development as she navigated the challenges of her mission. The romance between Mirabelle and Jacques was beautifully portrayed, and their chemistry was palpable in every moment of dialogue. Armistead's writing is engaging and immersive, and I found myself completely engrossed from beginning to end as the pace never slowed or faltered. Overall, A Tryst in Paris is a wonderful introduction to The Carousel Time Traveler series, promising more intriguing journeys through time and love in future installments, and I can’t wait for more.
