The Elusive Truth of Lily Temple by Joanna Davidson Politano // Review

Lucie's Review: 

An intriguing mystery wrapped up in a fairy tale, where nothing is quite what it seems. 

Lily Temple is a silent film star, knowing for spinning tales on the silver screen, but who is she really? Peter Discroll is a detective bent on solving the mystery of Lily Temple and the Briarwood Teardrop Sapphire that she keeps close to her.

The story unfolds in nonlinear fashion, that added to the mystery. Well told and complex, with stories within the stories. With truth hidden in fairy tales. I liked that Peter served as a solid reference point, strong in his faith and seeking justice throughout. 

It took a while for me to appreciate the intricacy of the plot, with the interwoven stories and pathways that all make sense if you bide your time. Artfully written, with a solid core of faith, and a plot that keeps you guessing! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
