If you’re looking to be swept away into a world full of adventure, intrigue, and possible murder; all the while searching for a lost painting, only to stumble into romance, then The Girl Who Knew Da Vinci by Belle Ami is definitely the book for you. Be prepared to take a trip through time to witness all the lives that one painting can touch, just where it ends no one knows. Belle Ami will take you on an adventure that you have never been on before, leaving you gasping for breath and holding on for dear life.
When art historian Angela Renatus becomes haunted by dreams of Leonardo da Vinci painting a work of art, that as far as she knows has never existed, she decides to seek the truth. In her journey to discovering the truth she meets art detective Alex Caine, who shockingly has been hired to find that same painting. In their combined search for the lost art of Da Vinci, their lives begin to entwine in ways that were beyond their wildest imagination, putting them both in danger and forcing them to decide what is the most important thing in life.
I enjoyed this book very much, so much that I was able to finish it in just a couple of sittings. It was written in the first perspective, switching between characters, but was never confusing and was very clear as to whose thoughts we were hearing at the time. Angela and Alex’s characters had a great foundation, they were full and well-rounded, with any questions I had about them being answered. The secondary characters added plenty of flavor to the book and felt as if they were meant to be there.
There were a couple things about the story line that I had found a little odd, but without giving away any spoilers, I can’t go into much detail. However, the novel itself was very well written, there weren’t any obvious mistakes, and had the feel of a professionally edited book. All in all, it is definitely worth reading and I recommend it to anyone looking for a mystery wrapped together with a romance.
I feel as if The Girl Who Knew Da Vinci deserves a 4 out of 4 stars. The narration flows beautifully, the dialogue fits each situation, sometimes fun and flirty, while other times being intense and strong. I had fun reading this book and hope to read more like it in the future.
