So I would recemmmend yes, but be aware if you read the 2 previous part, it's a different. The format is the same in a way we follow one story in the past and one in present day, but that's it. If you haven't read the other ones go it's worth it!

Ella Carey has skillfully woven a tale which spans time periods over 100 years apart and between England and Paris and two women, Louisa from the late 1800's and Sarah from the present time. It's hard to say whether the author is telling two love stories wrapped up in a mystery or a mystery wrapped in love stories. Whatever, this book held me rapt from beginning to end. I would especially recommend it to anyone who enjoys a story with some history woven through it and one with sub-plots and endings which can surprise the reader. The contrast between the location and events of the Belle Epoque period in Paris and the gentile lifestyle of 1890's England was particularly interesting.
Sarah West finds about her ancestor Louisa’s death by accident from a letter from Marthe de Florian. And she is intrigued and wants to find out more. How did Louisa really die? Was it a suicide? She goes to Paris and moves in with artist Laurent Chartier. And starts seeing life in a new way.
Then we follow Louisa’s story and find out about her remarkable life and love as Sarah delves in her ancestor’s story. Now Sarah knows what path to follow for her own life.
FROM A PARIS BALCONY is an intriguing story following the lives of two remarkable ladies centuries apart. Both their stories are interesting and will take a reader on a journey of self-exploration. Author Ella Carey pens these spell-binding tales with her books that hooks readers and keeps them engrossed till the very last page. And still keep them in the story world long after they close the book.
Highly recommended for all readers.
