Greetings Intrepid, Independent Francophiles,

You’re invited to join me, other mystery lovers and Francophiles for an exclusive week in Paris.

Our boutique hotel is located in the Paris neighborhood described in my book, Murder in Clichy, in the 8th arrondissement. We will meet in the hotel salon each evening to sample French wines and discuss the day’s events, with a bit of book talk thrown into the mix.

You are also welcome to choose your own accommodation and meet up with us for nightly Apéros and discussion.

Please note that this itinerary may change, depending on changes in time or availability of some of our destinations. Or change a venue due to unforeseen circumstances.

Cara Black in ParisBut rain or shine, we’ll hit the cobblestones everyday.

This adventure will require a modicum of self-reliance in terms of getting around, but it should nonetheless be a grand adventure. As most of you will have visited Paris before, get ready for a different visit.

You need to be prepared to walk everyday and we’ll be using the Metro and buses. You will have plenty of time to explore on your own.

Space will be limited, please submit a non-refundable deposit of $500 by 11/1/22.

The remainder of the balance ($1500) is due by 2/14/23. Meg would prefer to have checks but can also do Apple Pay. Any questions, please contact Meg:

We’d love to have you join us for APRIL IN PARIS,
Cara and Meg
