Most Amazing Review Ever

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ May 24, 2012

I’m still shaking a bit--35 years in this business and I’ve just received the most amazing review of my career from "The Bookish Libraria"

The Bookish Dame's Review

:

I hardly know what to tell you except there's little that brings me back to my young adult years like a gothic mystery. I love a gothic novel! Shades of Norah Lofts and Mary Stewart--only more umph and a little better, I have to say! I could hardly wait to receive a copy of Ms Crows book to review. I particularly was anxious to read one set in a monastery with a proper, would-be novice nun, a situation and setting which has always been a curiosity of mine. That this book had a paranormal twist just made it all the more a draw for me, and once I visited Donna Fletcher Crow's website, I was sunk! This is a book for a stormy night, everyone! And, you'll be reading it when you're supposed to be doing lots of other things...I was.

Donna Fletcher Crow is a natural born writer with skills that make reading such a joy. I identified immediately with her young protagonist Felicity, who is the aspiring nun cum sweetheart of not-sure-he-wants-to-be priest, Antony. They, as sleuths, are familiar to those who have read Ms Crow's previous book, "A Very Private Grave;" which you don't have to have read, by the way, to enjoy this second book in the Monastery Series. The couple is irrepressible! I adore them and their bantering, their bravery and their push-pull of relationship throughout this mystery novel. I'm dying to read more about them.

In having read the book, I would say that Ms Crow's influences by other authors are apparent, but subtle. She has a wonderful sense of herself and it comes across brilliantly. This is a novel in the vein of a Carolyn Hart's Annie Darling series with her husband and mother-in-law, but so much a superior quality. Any of you who love a mystery with a moral and a twist will love this one, as well. For me, historical and art references were a plus. Particularly those about the Templars.

I'm now going to be reading the 1st book in this series, and I look forward to her new book coming soon featuring the wonderful Felicity and Antony team called "An Unholy Communion." I truly think I've found my latest favorite author in this gothic, set mystery genre. Hopefully, you'll try this book, too, and join me as an on-going fan.
 

5 stars for my newest find!!!

Thank you, Dolores! I'm waaaaay behind on posting blog articles, so you're an encouragement to me to get back on track. I'm hoping you'll blog about the Jubilee--great viewing on BBC America.
