Angela Renatus holds a highly sought-after intern position at the Getty Museum when new dreams begin to spin her lack-luster life into one of love, luxury, and danger. Unwanted physical advances leave Angela with no choice but to flee from the museum and her dream career. Alex Caine, an investigator who recovers lost and stolen art, promises to protect Angela when trouble threatens to follow her every move while also extending a professional opportunity of a lifetime. In the throes of a lustrous love affair, the pair soon realize a treacherous past is replaying itself all over again. What’s worse, thieves are hot on the trail and will stop at no expense on their quest for fame and fortune. Angela and Alex must work together to solve the mystery and put an end to the revolving misery that controls their lives.

The Girl Who Knew Da Vinci by Belle Ami is nothing short of a stunning work of art worthy of main display status. With the passing of each chapter, I fell more and more in love with this thrilling and delicious page-turner. From the main characters to the lengthy list of antagonists, the characters are thoroughly developed. The plot contains the perfect concoction of a beautiful romance, mind-boggling mystery, and suspenseful thrills that promise to please the palate of a wide range of readers.

While the story begins in Los Angeles, California, most of the book smoothly transitions between various well-known Italian cities of both centuries past and modern-day times. Art history enthusiasts will appreciate the vivid Italian architecture and famous pieces of art discussed throughout the book.

This book has been professionally edited, as I am only able to locate two minor spelling errors throughout the entire novel. Individuals who prefer to read error-free publications will be delighted by this award-worthy masterpiece. Additionally, enthusiasts of mystery, thriller, and romance genres will find themselves indulging in a great escape between the covers of this book. Those who dislike a few curse words and heavy romantic scenes may not want to read this remarkable story.

It is with great pleasure I award The Girl Who Knew Da Vinci by Belle Ami 4 out of 4 stars. There is nothing I dislike about this book. The author has delivered an exquisitely written tale of life, loss, and love that is deserving of praise from all. Suffice it to say, with the right actors and producers, this book could become an Academy Award-winning film.

Wow. You have quite high praise for the book, but then, if it seamlessly integrates passionate romance, thrilling action, and moving art, it may be worthy of such commendation. Great review!

I really like the cover of this book, and I didn't want to judge it only for its cover - so thank you for reviewing this book! I'm glad you enjoyed it so much, Jessica! You have high praise for this book so I'll be keeping this in mind for my to-read list. It doesn't hurt that I also enjoy art history!

Great review, it sounds like a wonderful book. I've noticed that sometimes action-packed thrillers are lacking in the character development area, so it's great to know that this book excels in both areas.

Sounds like a great book. To have not only well developed protagonists, but also, the numerous antagonists sounds like the author put a lot of work into this fiction. I'm curious about the storyline as well. So, I'll be reading this book. Thanks for the interesting review.
