Who's Publishing What: Lost and Found in Paris

Lian Dolan invites readers to journey to Paris for an art history treasure hunt “told with wit, style and a touch of intrigue.”

Booklist says Lost and Found in Paris (William Morrow Books)spins a story that is both heavy and light, spanning continents and exploring relationships. With a hint of Dan Brown and a splash of Jamie Brenner, this book will appeal to … those who enjoy character-driven fiction.”

What does the author say about her fourth novel? “All I know is that when you finish it, I hope you feel like you’ve had the best vacation in Paris. Maybe you had a little too much wine, maybe you did a few things you might not do at home, maybe you met a special someone, maybe you wore that killer dress and maybe you solved a mystery. It’s Paris after all,” says Dolan, author of The Sweeney Sisters, Helen of Pasadena and Elizabeth the First Wife.

Lian is the creator and host of “Satellite Sisters,” the award-winning podcast she produces with her four real sisters: Julie, Liz, Sheila and Monica. She’s a regular humor columnist for Pasadena Magazine and has previously written monthly columns for O, The Oprah Magazine and Working Mother Magazine. In 2020, she served on the faculty of the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop.
