HASH(0x9b324660) von 5 Sternen Enchanted Setting, Magical Plot 30. November 2001
Von Diana Faillace Von Behren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
When emotionally hard-boiled Emily agrees to join her errant cousin Harry on an academic-treasure-hunting holiday in Chinon, France, she does so reluctantly. Yet, from the very first moment she sees the fabled chateau and senses its evocative magic, she slightly lets down her guard, becoming slowly embroiled in the events surrounding a recent murder in the village and the corresponding intrigues of her fellow vacationers at the lovely Hotel de France. As her romantic sensibilities had been dampened by her parents' divorce and now are reinforced by her cousin's no-show, Emily unsuccessfully attempts to stay neutral to the obvious charms of the setting as embodied by the handsome French vineyard owner and the German violinist with the rock star ambiance. Only when she realizes that Harry's delayed appearance has something to do with the murdered man, and she unintentionally jeopardizes the life of one of the young tourists at the hotel by confiding her ruminations, does the story quickly wind down to a satisfactory conclusion.
Kearsley weaves her story with the history of Chinon and adds some supernatural occurances to further alloy the magical tone of the tale with reality. Emily is a belivable heroine, crafted in the Mary Stewart genre of not quite damsel in distress, but rather the innocent tourist who unwittingly backs into a situation she cannot totally control. The beautiful setting, the handsome collection of men, the alluring music and olifactory descriptions of Chinon embue the book with a sensory lushness which is as delightful to experience as devouring a gourmet dark chocolate truffle.
I did not find the book overly predictable. Perhaps, I knew from the middle on with whom Emily ultimately would find favor, but even this did not detract from the overall pleasure derived from the reading as I was torn between not being able to put it down and not finishing it too quickly.
I look forward to Ms Kearsley's other offerings in the future and hope that her first two books, "The Gemini Game" and "Undertow" will be reissued.

HASH(0x9b327744) von 5 Sternen Disjointed and dated. 24. August 2013
Von Suzy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I realized this book was written in 1995 and repackaged with a new cover, but everything about it felt dated. The characters were thinly developed, including the primary ones. I had to keep turning back to remind myself who she was talking about. The plot line was extremely convoluted and dissatisfying. I have liked some of her books, would not recommend this one.

HASH(0x9b3276c0) von 5 Sternen Really disappointing 6. Februar 2014
Von thewordlover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
OK I had my hopes up because I love Kearsley books and Firebird is magnificent. I was surprised to find this novel was not of that caliber until I idscovered it was a reissue of a much earlier title. Not surprisingly, she learned a lot over the years so recent novels are much better in every way: plot, character development, pacing, and sheer page turning engagement. I think they should have made it more obvious when this was written.

HASH(0x9b327c3c) von 5 Sternen Where's the story? 26. März 2014
Von G. Beaverson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I loved Mariana, The Winter Sea, The Rose Garden, but this one I didn't even like a little bit. I know it's an earlier work of hers, but when I got to page 134, I was wondering when the story would get going. Nothing was happening. The descriptions of the area, buildings, even the characters were vague. I couldn't connect with any of it. I hate giving up on a book, but I did on this one. Life is too short to spend time reading a book with so little to give to the reader.

HASH(0x9b327c9c) von 5 Sternen bottom of the list 21. September 2013
Von BJean - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I usually love Kearsley's books, but this one is the least good of all of hers. It rambles, as do the characters, around the old French town of Chinon looking at history and looking for two (legendary?) lost treasures. Descriptions of the town and castle were such that I was never able to develop a mental map picturing where things were in relation to each other. The story is fairly dull and the characters are lackluster. One treasure turns out to be not very exciting, and under no circumstances would have survived the centuries where it was hidden. The other was found in the past and is MIA again. One thread has a mildly interesting twist toward the end, but the supposed love story that is suddenly tacked on in the last couple pages is neither very romantic nor at all developed in the story. I've read all of Kearsley books; this is one I would not recommend.
