Review and Giveaway: Inamorata by Megan Chance

I am very pleased to welcome TLC Blog Tours to The Book Binder’s Daughter today.  I am participating in the blog tour of the historical fiction novel Inamorata.  You can read my review of Inamorata, enter to win a copy of your own, and look at the other blogs participating in the tour.

My Review:

InamorataThe best word that I can use to describe INAMORATA is enchanting.  The author draws you into the world of 19th century Venice, with its captivating setting and bewitching legends.   Nicholas is a poet living in the city and visits the famous salons where other artists gather to exchange ideas and find wealthy benefactors.  But we learn that Nicholas has lost his poetic inspiration and is on a dangerous and desperate hunt to recapture his poet muse.

When Sophie and Joseph Hannigan, a brother and sister who are twins, enter the artist scene in Venice Nicholas is fascinated by both of them and the uncanny connection that these twins share.  The author does a great job at slowly unravelling the mystery of these twins and the scandal that they are trying to escape in New York.  Joseph is a talented painter, the likes of which Nicholas has not seen in a long time.  His twin sister, Sophie, is not only his model but also his muse.  When Joseph is captivated by a local courtesan, Sophie and Nicholas must work together to save Joseph from this strange and dangerous woman.

I found the themes that were woven into the book thought-provoking.  When an artist creates a masterpiece there is usually some kind of inspiration behind the work.  Although the artist gets all of the attention, his muse is usually not mentioned all and forgotten.  Everyone wants to be remembered for something they did in this lifetime.  Does the inspirer not deserve as much attention and accolade as the inspired?

If you are looking for a unique historical fiction that also has elements of romance, mystery and fantasy then I highly recommend that you give INAMORATA a try.  Scroll down to the bottom of the post to win your own copy.
