Early reviews of April in Paris, 1921:

“Fascinating characters, beautifully written.”
– Kate Williams, New York Times bestselling author of ‘Becoming Queen Victoria’

“Tessa Lunney brilliantly evokes the Années folles of the Roaring Twenties as her heroine―an Australian debutant-turned-nurse-turned-spy―Kiki Button traipses through Paris’s sensual bohemian culture hunting for a World War I mole and stolen Pablo Picasso painting.”
– Julie McElwain, author of ‘A Murder in Time’ and ‘A Twist in Time’

“An irresistible debut! Adventurous and whip-smart, Kiki Button is Jazz Age Paris’s most dazzling ex-pat.”
– David Krugler, author of ‘The Dead Don’t Bleed’

“Liberated from her wartime duties as a nurse, Kiki Button, Tessa Lunney’s main character of her debut April in Paris, 1921, is a gossip columnist-cum-detective who finds herself mixed up in a mystery set against the backdrop of post-WWI Paris. Lunney takes the reader on a breathless, page-turning journey through cafes, streets, and dark alleys of this Bohemian time period, searching for a stolen piece of art. Kiki, who is charming, self-possessed, and sexually free, is readable and fun, a modern woman blazing though the Années folles no holds barred.”
– John Copenhaver, author of ‘Dodging and Burning’
