Happy Friday Readers!!
We have made it through another week, and I hope everyone’s week was a good one! I know I am glad for the weekend and to get some relaxation. The book that I am reviewing today is one filled with adventure, action and secrets. Rook by Sharon Cameron is set in Paris and is filled with explosions. When secrets are reviled you won’t see them coming.
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“History has a way of repeating itself. In the Sunken City that was once Paris, all who oppose the new revolution are being put to the blade. Except for those who disappear from their prison cells, a red-tipped rook feather left in their place. Is the mysterious Red Rook a savior of the innocent or a criminal?
Meanwhile, across the sea in the Commonwealth, Sophia Bellamy’s arranged marriage to the wealthy René Hasard is the last chance to save her family from ruin. But when the search for the Red Rook comes straight to her doorstep, Sophia discovers that her fiancé is not all he seems. Which is only fair, because neither is she.
As the Red Rook grows bolder and the stakes grow higher, Sophia and René find themselves locked in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse.”
I am afraid if I say anymore than what is in the description, I may accidentally revel something. Sophia is a strong female character who knows what she wants out of life, and knows that marrying this man will save her family. But as she gets to know Rene, she learns that not everything is as it seems. Rene doesn’t know what to think about his fiance Sophia, but he also knows that he has to keep her at a distance if he is going to keep his secret from her. The relationship between these two is so complex that it will make you feel like you have been in the same relationship as they are. Sharon tells the story from two points of view, so the reader gets to see what is really going on before the characters do.
If you love mystery, romance, and adventure you need to pick up a copy of this book as as soon as possible.
Go find your inner Rook my dear readers!
