When I started this writing caper I decided to review everything I read. I posted those reviews to Amazon in the UK and US (you could in those days without having to spend $50 with them first! #JustSaying!) and Goodreads. It didn’t cross my mind to post them on my blog… duh! As I’m aiming to stick to a blogging schedule – oh, how we laughed! – and as I read desperately slowly I shall add in these retro-fitted book reviews when I don’t have a current one to post.
I was hooked from the first page in this fast flowing story of family history and intrigue. Esme Quentin starts to investigate when her sister is attacked and hospitalised and the plot becomes complicated from there with many twists and surprises along the route, none of which I want to reveal. Percival keeps the writing tight and I found the pages turned easily, so keen was I to find out the answers in this gripping mystery.
