Description: (Goodreads) When terminally-ill archaeologist Renée d'Arcadia is summoned to France to take part in the reading of a will, she is plunged into a maelstrom of deceit and destruction to solve a 100-year-old mystery originating from a sinister church where nothing is as it seems. Renée joins forces with David Arturo, an ex-helicopter pilot with a troubled past, to interpret clues cleverly hidden in tombstones and classic works of literature to find artifacts scattered across Europe. Racing against time, Renée and David must overcome their inner demons to outmaneuver a network of evil bent on destroying them. What they find in each other just might provide answers to some of mankind's oldest myths.
My Thoughts: I love a book that keeps my interest from the first page all the way to the end. This one had adventure, mystery, romance, historical and so much more that I'm not sure what genre to put it in, but that is a good thing.
The author does a wonderful job with the characters for they were able to take a hold of me from the start. I was able to develop a relationship with them and was on the edge of my seat with their every move.
I really enjoyed reading this book and I will be watching this author for future titles. I would have no problem recommending this book..
I rate this book 4 1/2 stars
About The Author (taken from the back of the book)
John C. Stipa first began telling stories to his daughters at bedtime. In the beginning, they were comical romps and reprises of tales told by his father. It wasn't long before he realized the keyboard was his portal to worlds not yet created, characters not yet bought to life, emotions not yet known to exist. If you turn back the cover and relax your mind, maybe he'll take you to a place you've always wanted to go, protected by the veil of your imagination.
