A fun easy read with a good mystery.

This isn't as good as Willig's Pink Carnation series, but fans of the dual-time frame device will probably enjoy this well enough. And I liked it, even if I didn't loooove it -- my only complaint would be an ending that felt a tad bit rushed, and also the turn that one of the two storylines took which was...not quite what I expected. Overall an enjoyable read, though!

I did not enjoy this book

The book jumps between 2009 and 1849 and the readers are treated to two sweet love stories. The ending was a little rushed. There were some loose ends that I would have liked to see tied up. Overall, a great read!

Lacks the magic of her PINK CARNATION series.

I enjoyed learning about the pre-Raphaelite movement. After reading the book, I looked up some of the painters in old art history books, and I will go look at what the Art Institute has.
