Wednesday. It’s not the beginning of the week and it’s not Thursday, the first day to officially usher in the weekend. It’s the infamous “get over the hump slash middle of the week day.” It’s also a great day to escape into another world.
The clock struck 5 pm. You left work (yeah, right), went home, made dinner (ordered), and now it’s time for a little “me” time. Go sit in your favorite chair, get comfortable, and get to know Da Vinci and the girl who knew him.
If you love puzzles as much as I do, then your foray into this book will be an adventure to span the ages set against the backdrop of Italy, the Getty, and some yummy sounding dishes, you’ll wish were waiting for you in your own kitchen.
“sliced it expertly with a wheel and served it with a simple green salad and fresh tomatoes. After they devoured the first course, Joseph returned to the pizza oven with Alex and Angela in tow.” ~Ami, Belle. The Girl Who Knew Da Vinci: An Out of Time Thriller (Out of Time Thriller Series Book 1) (p. 112). Tema Merback. Kindle Edition.
See what I did there? A little red herring. A little switcheroo. That’s what great mysteries are made of. But, seriously. At around 227 pages, Ms. Ami’s The Girl Who Knew Da Vinci is a jewel of a read. I don’t usually care for eBooks. I prefer the touch and smell of the pages, but reading is reading and I’ll take it wherever I can get it.
If you’re a fan of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, this book is for you. If you love mysteries with a bit of fantasy (read: time travel), this book is for you. If you love art, travel, and romance, this book is for you.
