Americans Maya and her boyfriend for a year Ben were to go to Paris together, but just before their trip, he returned to his former wife. Maya goes to France without Ben. At the Bienvenue Hotel where she is staying, Maya meets Dr. Juliet Rice who the desk booked as Dr. Julius Price and has no room. Kindhearted Maya shares her double occupancy room with Juliet. The next morning Julie is found murdered in the hotel room and the police suspect Maya.

The cops are not the only problem confronting Maya. Apparently dangerous predators stalk her. She is unaware that the Moret Society believes that she possesses the Moret Crucifix, which they want at any cost. French reporter Simon Girard investigates the murder of his brother who had ties to Juliet. He comes to her aid, but as they investigate together and fall in love, Maya fears she will not survive her ordeal.

The Paris Secret is an exciting twisting thriller starring a beleaguered woman in peril and a heroic man risking his life to keep her safe. Although somewhat over the top of the Eifel Tower, the story line brings to life An American in Paris (and Versailles), her romance and a bit of history, but it is the taut suspense that makes for a fun time for armchair travelers in Paris.
