    Secrets revealed

    I received a copy of the ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Lucy Alling is working as a rare books dealer. Her life changes when her secret is revealed. She loses her boyfriend James and her boss Sid. The story takes on a new direction when James’ grandmother Helen hires Lucy as her consultant. Lucy and Helen travel to England together. Helen has secrets of her own as well. The relationship is honest and realistic. Helen’s wisdom adds an interesting dimension to the story. There is so much that one can learn from elders. Their connection adds a strong layer to this story. Secrets drive this story. Lucy’s experience at the home of the Bronte sisters at Haworth is truly a turning point in this quick paced read. Can Lucy learn from her past and move forward? Will she have a happily ever after? This is a novel for those that love everything Bronte.

    The Bronte Plot is basically a romance novel!

    The Bronte Plot by Katherine Reay is a contemporary fiction novel. Lucy Alling works for Sid McKenna at McKenna Antiques and Design (he does lovely designs). Lucy works in the store (while Sid is out doing design work) and is completely responsible for acquiring and selling the books. Lucy loves books and their stories. Unfortunately, she has taken a few liberties with the books she has acquired for the store and then sold. James Carmichael comes into the store looking for a gift for his grandmother. Lucy is instantly attracted to James. She sells him a lovely book for his grandmother, Helen Carmichael. James and Lucy start dating and fall in love. But then James discovers what Lucy did with the books. James sees things in black and white. James breaks up with Lucy. James’ grandmother, Helen had an odd reaction when she first met Lucy. It turns out that Helen knew Lucy’s grandfather. Helen and Lucy go on a journey to England. Helen needs to make right a wrong from her past. Will Lucy be able to understand that what she did was wrong? Is there a future for Lucy and James? I did enjoy some parts of The Bronte Plot. The things I enjoyed the most was the history of the writers in England and the description of the gorgeous 1950’s Danish silver that Helen Carmichael purchased. I cannot believe what Lucy did to the books (and that she thought it was okay to do it). To me The Bronte Plot was just another romance book (with a life lesson thrown in). I give The Bronte Plot 2.75 out of 5 stars. I received a complimentary copy of The Bronte Plot from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
