Belle Ami’s The Girl Who Knew da Vinci is a book that is overloaded with several episodes of love and romance. The story begins when Leonardo da Vinci painting goes missing. A search is being conducted in an attempt to solve the mystery of this painting that is now missing. Angela Renatus, an art historian, begins having dreams about this piece of painting that is now missing. In her dreams, she can see the subjects in the art who are Fioretta and Giuliano Medici.

A tycoon from Germany named Max Jaeger assigns Alex Caine the duty to search for the Leonardo da Vinci painting on his behalf. Alex Caine is an art detective agent and so is assigned this duty of looking for the missing piece of painting. Jaeger’s motive of looking for this painting is to clear the name of Gerhard, his uncle.

I really loved how Belle Ami mixes proportions of history, mystery and romance to eventually come up with a fine blend of the three themes. The plot of this story is easy to follow despite the fact that the story spines in three different periods of time. The author uses flashbacks to remind us of the Second World War period by telling us about Sophia and Gerhard, who are lovers during these dark hours.

I think that this book can best fit lovers of mystery, history and even romance. I believe that this book will have you captivated and you will read it in just a single sitting as it has the capacity of having held at the edge of your seat throughout. The author’s beautiful cast of story developed characters does not disappoint either. The several twists and twins in this book will also demand for a reader’s strong engagement and concentration as he reads the story.

As I read the book, I found the characters to be likable and so at times, I felt like identifying with most of them. I even wished to bring some of them e real world. The historical genre of this story makes it achieve its validity thus most readers will not doubt it. The vivid description that Belle Ami uses throughout the book is also great.

I would rate this book 4 out of 4 stars since I failed to spot any spoiler. I tend to believe that this book must have been given proper professional editing thus it is well refined hence it is error-free. The author equally awards this book with such a perfect storyline that many readers will likely have to admire and identify with. Friends, please try to read for yourself The Girl Who Knew da Vinci and have yourselves thrilled.

Yes this book was an overload of romance but even better I believe is that the love that the Fioretta and Giuliano had kept find itself with different people over 500 years
