The Romanov Conspiracy - Reviewed

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Book Blurb:
From the internationally bestselling author of The Second Messiah—an intriguing thriller about an archeologist who discovers new clues to the mysterious disappearance of Princess Anastasia. Dr. Laura Pavlov is a member of an international team digging on the outskirts of the present-day Russian city of Ekaterinburg, where the Romanov royal family was executed by its captors in July 1918.     When Dr. Pavlov discovers two bodies perfectly preserved in permafrost in a mineshaft, she discovers dramatic new clues to the disappearance of the Romanovs, and in particular their famous daughter Princess Anastasia, whose murder has always been in doubt. What Pavlov learns will change the accepted course of world history and hurl her back into the past—and into a maelstrom of secrets and lies.     The Romanov Conspiracy is a high-tension story of trust and betrayal, of a fight between good and evil, and of love and friendship, set in one of the most bloody and brutal revolutions in world history.

My Thoughts:
From the beginning of this book I was captivated! I had to know who the bodies where that were found. Glenn does an excellent job of spinning a web and keeping you glued to the pages. I have always been interested in the Romanov's and this book added to my appetite. It is definitely fast moving and will keep you up reading late into the night! Highly recommended!

 My Thoughts:
It's summertime and we've arrived on Mackinac Island in Michigan, during the gilded age.  Elena's family has lost their wealth and her mother is determined to get her married to a wealthy man. As I was reading this all I kept thinking of when Elena's mother came on the scene was Harriet Oleson from Little House on the Prairie, meddlesome, nosey, and bossy. Elena, or Lanie, as her father calls her just wants to draw and enjoy God's creation. 
Elena's mother wants her to meet and marry Chester Darrington, not only is he the most eligible bachelor, he will ease their financial troubles.
When Elena meets Chase, he is not at all what he has been portrayed as. He enjoys the night sky, and wants to invent things.
When Elena rode her bike to the lighthouse I felt like I was out of breath with her. I could hear the waves from the water.
This was one of the best books I've read all year! It will make my top for the year! It is a must read!
