Carina Axelsson is a writer, illustrator, and former model. She grew up in California with her Swedish father and Mexican mother. After high school, Carina moved to New York City to model, then on to Paris where she published her first book. She currently lives in in the forests of Germany with four dogs and a very large aquarium full of fish.
"An entertaining, solid mystery with a resolution that will please
most detective fans...not only is Axelle evolving into a deeper
personality by the end of this book, but the cast of supporting
characters-from the police chief's son, Sebastian, to Herve, the
model booking agent-are fun to spend time with and well drawn." -
"Carina Axelsson kept me on my toes and had me guessing about the culprit until the very end. I really enjoyed the friendship between Axelle and Ellie, who showed that models are more than just pretty faces...I would recommend Model Undercover: Paris for those who enjoy mysteries as a fun read, especially for summer." - The Young Folks
"Well written and engaging, Model Undercover: Paris...takes us into the world of fashion and modeling... A light-hearted, fast paced, and clean page-turner, it would make a great summer read...If the author keeps developing Axelle's many complexities, she could become quite a healthy role model." - Sahar's Reviews
