Book Review #1220
The Jewel and the Key by Louise Spiegler
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I really liked the cover of this book - but it was totally different from what I was expecting. The historical elements were pretty well done, but I never felt fully drawn into the story. I would have liked a better connection with Addie. I saw all the things that happened to her, but I didn't really have any feelings for her. The romantic elements felt a little forced, but it didn't bother me too much - kind of because I was a little apathetic towards the story. I wasn't a big fan of the ending, I wanted more closure, something to grasp, but the author chose to take a different approach. Even though I didn't love this book, I might still recommend to people who like this genre. It just wasn't for me.
