Customer Review Erica Miner...Award-winning author of the Opera Series Mysteries...5 5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite haunts depicted beautifully. "For starters, this book is a Francophile's dream fantasy. "The author sets a story with heart in some of France's most amazing places--and those who know the country know that there are many. A love story with many twists, turns, and surprises, PARIS ONCE UPON A TIME captures the essence of what we all love about la Belle France from the perspective of two people who are destined to fall hopelessly in love but come across pitfalls and obstacles throughout their journey. I loved how Lawrence Rose made classical music an integral part of the plot without overemphasis, comparing such sublime works as Berlioz's 'Les Nuits d'été to an 'escape to the islands of delight, where one loves forever.' A riveting read and highly recommended." RESERVE YOURS NOW, OR GET MORE INFO! CLICK! French Beauty, Millionaire, Marisol de Froissart comes in Many Forms in the Thrillers and Romantic Adventures and Short Stories by Lawrence Rose... So does love come in many forms. ESPECIALY IN PARIS ONCE UPON A TIME by Lawrence Rose... a Love Story La Casa de Marisol.... The small entry gave onto the salon. The sound of our quiet voices echoed across the room as she led me in. Perhaps I was walking into the home of a very wealthy art critic or even into a décor style salon in a museum in Paris. Art Nouveau, Belle Époque bentwood, great arches, organic, flower-carved, like vines intertwined, the sofas, large chairs, tables, of a type. Craft. But this was her home. Marisol saw the look of wonder on my face. “I see you know art, Steven.” The mantles held ceramics from Bruges and Limoges, adamantine, emerald, and turquoise blue, pastel-colored vases both rectangular and round. The floors and ceilings of polished American golden oak with Greek Key marquetry of tropical hardwoods of delicate design. Draped were custom tapestries from Gobelin of forest scenes in fabled Arcadia. The room became centered and joined together by the Courbet. At the back of the salon, museum lit, a large painting by Courbet, a dreamy scene with flashing sunset colors by a cliff on the sea obscured by clouds and mist mastered the room. A lonely barkentine cruised offshore.

Hilarie S.G. PARIS ONCE UPON A TIME
FIVE STARS!... is a classic love story. Rose depicts Steven, a man of great musical talent who, after years of “playing the field,” meets the one woman who completes him. Marisol is a complicated, sophisticated, French heiress involved in wonderful charity work. They meet in France by sheer chance and almost immediately their beautiful romance begins. Her family’s background is filled with fascists and Nazi collaborators. They quickly become a couple. and Rose’s story creates a travelogue of beautiful, and often exotic places. During their myriad vacations, they enjoy incredible epicurean delights. Rose pays tremendous detail to both the history of the regions, focusing often on places of religious and/or historical fame, and their very upscale dining experiences. Steven’s background is musical. Originally from New York, he lives in San Francisco and spends his life teaching, but is greatly involved in a well-known chorus. He travels on business for them a great deal, particularly in France, and because of this is highly familiar with many areas.
Steven and Marisol’s romance leads to marriage and over the years they encounter people in their travels who become interesting dear friends.
Rose’s knowledge of opera, classical, and other styles of music, gourmet dining, and both architecture, and history make this a most interesting read.
I enjoyed the details about the couple’s lovely... life together. This is a classic story of two lovers who.have found a perfect life together.
