The Bronte Plot Book Review

I have a good solid mystery book to share with you called The Bronte Plot written by Katherine Reay.
When Lucy’s secret is unearthed, her world begins to crumble. But it may be the best thing that has ever happened to her.

Lucy Alling makes a living selling rare books, often taking suspicious liberties to reach her goals. When her unorthodox methods are discovered, Lucy’s secret ruins her relationship with her boss and her boyfriend, James—leaving Lucy in a heap of hurt and trouble. Something has to change; she has to change.

In a sudden turn of events, James’s wealthy grandmother, Helen, hires Lucy as a consultant for a London literary and antiques excursion. Lucy reluctantly agrees and soon discovers Helen holds secrets of her own. In fact, Helen understands Lucy’s predicament better than anyone else.

As the two travel across England, Lucy benefits from Helen’s wisdom as Helen confronts ghosts from her own past. Everything comes to a head at Haworth, home of the Brontë sisters, where Lucy is reminded of the sisters’ beloved heroines who, with tenacity and resolution, endured—even in the midst of impossible circumstances.

Now Lucy must face her past in order to move forward. And while it may hold mistakes and regrets, she will prevail—if only she can step into the life that’s been waiting for her all along. 
My Thoughts:
Sometimes you just don't know until you get into a book whether you have made a good choice or not, which I learned long time ago, just go with it and let the chips fall where they may. I am not often wrong about a book or find it boring, and thankfully, this one was neither of those!
I have to admit that part of me kept chuckling a little bit here and there when Lucy would come up with one of her plots and she sincerely thinks she can work it out and nothing will happen.
She gets terribly lucky when James helps her get a position with his grandmother, but if you think this grandmother isn't up to something, then you didn't read the same book that I did. She was acting very strange and squirrely, which makes me more nervous because that means she had done something or was thinking of doing something that she thought might be the right thing to do.
So, it's up to James to keep her from falling flat on her face and still get the people she feels threatened her and her sense of peace! Boy, has he got his hands full!

Happy Reading!
