STAR RATINGS GUIDE
A Seductive Mystery, A Spellbinding Performance
🧡 Phantom of the Opera meets Bridgerton meets Agatha Christie in this dark, glittering romantic mystery.
💚 This story had me in its grip from prologue to closing credits. Romance and gothic mystery isn’t even my literary stomping ground, but I was hooked by the premise and writing style in equal measure. Poetic prose is not easily done well. Most of the time, it’s indulgent and verbose. Not so here. The writing is evocative yet restrained. Not a word is wasted.
A quick thanks: This honest review was written after listening to a Netgalley ALC from NetGalley and Hodder & Stoughton Audio.
