The Demon Lover by Victoria Holt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This story was very different from Holt's other titles. Set in Paris around the time of the Battle for Paris, a young female artist tries to make her way in the world. She finds a patron in a dangerous Baron, who is her making as well as her downfall. Although I always figure out the twist in Holt's books, this one took me longer than usual to figure out. The break from the usual formula was enjoyable and I loved reading about the French countryside and culture. A great little recreational read with a little bit of history thrown in.
