Before I left Ridgecrest, I got a book I’ve been anxious to read since I read the last “castle book” by Kristy Cambron. Since I didn’t expect to be gone for SIX WEEKS, I left it there. It’s still there. I’m still here in Missouri. What does that mean? Sorry, but no review yet. I’ll do it as soon as I get home. Please forgive me, Ms. Cambron.
In the meantime, this is what intrigued me about it, and at the end of the post is a list of awesome bloggers who actually did get to read the book. Go see what they had to say and have a great day! I’ll be back with my double coppers as soon as I possibly can.
Book: The Painted Castle
Author: Kristy Cambron
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: October 15, 2019
Bestselling author Kristy Cambron concludes the Lost Castle novels with this sweeping tale of art and secrets long buried in England.
It was supposed to be a one-week job: survey an art find, collect a hefty fee and use that to settle historian Kiera Foley’s life back into balance. But from the moment she sets foot in the East Suffolk countryside, the mysteries surrounding the old English manor and the enigmatic art thief who’s employed her stir more questions than answers. Then, Kiera finds the existence of a portrait captivating enough to up-end all of her expectations. This one could be a twin-a painting so close in composition to a known masterpiece, it may be rendered priceless if it truly captured the likeness of a young Queen named Victoria.
Set in three time periods–the rapid change of Victorian England, the tumultuous skies over England’s eastern shores in WWII, and modern-day–The Painted Castle unfolds a legacy of faith, family, and stories that are generations in the making.
