Paris, 1941: Kitty returns to Paris for the third time and this time is her most dangerous mission ever.  As an undercover agent for the resistance she knows that she must complete the mission.  She has lost so many family members and friends old and new to the Nazis so she can’t possibly stop fighting now.  But is she willing to lose more people that she is close to including her own husband?  Kitty and her husband Edgar know that the only way the Resistance’s mission will be successful is if they are no longer married.  This is the hardest time of their life and they know that even though they are no longer operating as husband and wife, her heart is put to the test when she gets word that Edgar is missing.  Kitty continues to fulfill the mission of the Resistance in risking her own life, by moving refugees across the borders while at the same time, sneaking supplies into the Prisoner of War Camps.  Kitty knows that one day she will find Edgar and that is the hope she hangs on to in such horrible times.

An American Wife in Paris authored by Chrystyna Lucyk-Berger is a wonderful continuation to The Diplomat's Wife Series.  This heartbreaking World War II historical fiction kept me on the edge of my seat with Kleenex in hand.  I felt such a deep connection to each and every character hoping that they would survive.  This unputdownable, phenomenal story was a rapid page turner for me.  The author did an amazing job of pulling me into the story that  I felt as if I was sneaking across the border myself.  My heart was pounding faster and louder at every gasp, as I continued reading to the very end.  I loved everything about this story and I highly recommend it.

“If I go back to Paris, it would be my third time there as an undercover agent...” Kitty murmured. “I ask myself, how many chances does one person get?”

Paris, 1941. When Kitty is asked to return to Paris as an undercover agent, she knows the mission is her most dangerous yet. But she has been fighting the Nazis for too long to stop now. And her role within the Resistance has already cost her friends, family and now – almost – her own marriage.

Because while she and 
Edgar are more in love than ever, his role as an undercover Nazi means it is safer if they are no longer married. And while signing the divorce papers is a formality that breaks her heart, Kitty knows that she and Edgar will find a way to be together when the war is finally over…

More determined than ever to undermine the Nazi regime, Kitty has nothing left to lose. From secretly supplying Prisoner of War camps with essential items, to moving refugees across borders to safety, she will stop at nothing to play her part in bringing the war to a close, even if it means risking her own life.

But when Edgar goes missing, Kitty’s world stops. As she begins a desperate search for her beloved husband, she hears from her contacts that he has been killed. But Kitty feels strongly in her heart that, somewhere out there, Edgar is still alive. And she knows she must risk everything to rescue the man she loves, no matter what…
