The Girl Who Knew Da Vinci, by Belle Ami, is an action-packed story filled with mystery. The story revolves around Angela, a museum worker in the city of Los Angeles. After quitting her job, she joins forces with Aledx Caine, who has been looking for one of the secret Da Vinci paintings that history never found. The two work together, traveling around Europe, trying to find any hints about the painting. Will they be able to find one of history’s most prized possessions, or will the adventure take them for good?

My favorite part of this story was the plot. There were so many details and twists and turns that I never saw coming. The settings were written beautifully, and at parts it felt as though I was walking the streets of Rome with the characters. This story can be described as a treasure hunt/ quest that will leave you wanting to turn every page to get to the end. The characters themselves are also very complex and provide a unique perspective to the story.

I would rate this book three out of four stars . At some points it felt as though the intimate scenes were forced and dragged the chapter along. The romance subplot was a nice addition but it would be best if either taken out completely, or removing most of the sex scenes. I found them to be taking away from the plot at points.

I found this to be well-edited with no errors. The plot, characters, and overarching mystery make this a fun and quick read that fans of the genre can enjoy.

There is also somewhat of a fantasy/magic plot, in that Angela becomes entranced with visions from paintings. The two use these trances to try and find the missing paintings. I found this part to be a bit confusing in that I felt as though it was not needed. While the visions helped the characters find the paintings and answer questions, it felt as though it was out of place within the story. Something I really did enjoy, however, was the complexity of the characters. The main characters are developed and provide an intricate look into their thoughts.

As stated before, there are several scenes sexual scenes within the book which are not suitable to anyone 16 or under. I would recommend this to fans of the genre above the age of 16. Anyone looking for a quick and fun, yet still intriguing mystery, will love this.
