About the Author

Natasha Lester is the New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Seamstress, The Paris Orphan and The Riviera House, and a former marketing executive for L'Oréal. Her novels have been translated into many different languages and are published all around the world.
When she's not writing, she loves collecting vintage fashion (Dior is a favorite!), practicing the art of fashion illustration, learning about fashion history--and traveling to Paris. Natasha lives with her husband and three children in Perth, Western Australia.


"In Hitler's war on civilization, a group of women and men risk everything to protect the art in their care, but it's not until decades later that the profound extent of their sacrifice is discovered. The Riviera House is a love letter to art in all its forms. With beautiful prose and immeasurable heart, Natasha Lester shows we must dare to love, in spite of fear, no matter the cost."--Erika Robuck, national bestselling author of The Invisible Woman
"Beautifully written and intimately researched, The Riviera House weaves an intriguing and wonderfully imagined path between WW2 Paris and modern-day French Riviera. Lester handles the darker aspects of war sensitively, while effortlessly drawing the reader into a powerful tale of art, passion and secrets. Like the masterpieces she writes about, Lester adds rich layers and real depth to her characters, and fans of historical fiction and dual timeline novels will be mesmerised as connections are slowly revealed, building toward a heart wrenching finale. Magnifique!"--Hazel Gaynor, NYT bestselling author of When We Were Young & Brave
"Delectable and daring, The Riviera House takes readers from wartime Paris to the sun-soaked French Riviera and beyond, populating its world with fabulous fashion, unforgettable characters, vibrant masterpieces -- and intrigue at every turn." --Bryn Turnbull, author of Woman Before Wallis

"Art lovers and fashionistas alike will be glued to this emotional page-turner about the women who safeguarded Paris's treasures during the German occupation."
--Kaia Alderson, author of Sisters in Arms
"The Riviera House is a poignant meditation on loss and the courage it takes to start over. A stark reminder of how the past influences the present, the novel kept me up at night, turning the pages faster and faster, in order to be with its heroine Remy as she solved the mystery of an enigmatic painting and learned what happened to the Résistants who risked their lives to help others."--Janet Skeslien Charles, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Library
"A vivid, nuanced and deeply moving depiction of women's courage in the face of unimaginable danger, sacrifice and loss. The Riviera House is a gripping story of a young woman who risks her life to record the Nazi's pillage of fine artworks during World War II, and the repercussions of her actions down the years, as her legacy helps another woman in her greatest hour of need. A superlative work of historical fiction--Natasha Lester's finest yet!"--Christine Wells, author of Sisters of the Resistance
