review 1: I was drawn to this book because of....its gorgeous cover and binding. I have been seeing it every single time that I've been to The Strand Bookstore this fall, because it's situated in a pretty convenient position for being viewed.

This is not a particularly well written book - it's more along the lines of a simplistic Nancy Drew mystery than anything. less

The book was sort of like a modern day fairy-tale. I enjoyed it but would not recommend it.

Interesting read with a great historic art sub-story.
