Summary, etc.:
"Bertie and Kate have been best friends since high school...[Bertie's] job depresses her, but not as much as the fact that Kate has recently decided to move...When Bertie's attempts to make Kate stay fail, she suggests the next-best thing: a trip to Paris...One night in Paris, they meet a strange man in a bar who offers them a private tour of the Louvre. The women find themselves alone in the museum, where nothing is quite as it seems. Caught up in a day that keeps repeating itself, Bertie and Kate are eventually separated, and Bertie is faced with a mystery that threatens to derail everything"-- Provided by publisher.

    When Bertie and Kate are offered a private tour of the Louvre by a man they meet at a Parisian bar, it almost seems too good to be true. The friends are taking this trip before Kate moves to a new city; the borders have now reopened, although after years of storms, shortages, bombings, and unrest, the global situation still feels precarious. Bertie and Kate arrive at the museum and are ushered inside without incident, but Bertie will soon discover it's easier to get in than to get out. None of her photos seem to turn out, the elevators are mysteriously moving on their own, and Kate suddenly disappears after a spat. In an increasingly disconcerting and ominous atmosphere, Bertie tries navigating the strange magnetism of the Louvre and the loop of time she suddenly is caught in, and her boyfriend, Dylan, arriving on the scene, only complicates things further. An enjoyably mind-bending trip through an all-too-realistic depiction of the breakdown of society, Bertie's unexpected journey explores the power of relationships to shape our reality.
