تقديري المبدئي للكتاب كان نجمة بسبب التطويل والحشو لتطويل القصة وملئ الصفحات فما هو الداعي لتكرار اسم كل شخص الثنائي (الاسم الأول واللقب) تقريبا في كل ذكر للشخص حتى أصبح شيئا مستفزا. وما الداعي من ذكر رقم رحلة الطائرة وشركة الطيران ووقتها وتاريخها بالدقيقة في كل مرة.

اما الأخطاء الإملائية فحدث ولا حرج بالرغم من انها الطبعة الثانية للكتاب والمفروض تكون منقحة.

اما النجمة الثانية فكانت بسبب النهاية غير المتوقعة وقد تكاد تكون الشئ الوحيد الذي أعجبني في الرواية.

ملخص القصة ماتت امرأة مسنة مقعدة في الشارقة واتهم بقتلها عدة أشخاص وتدور الأحداث بعلاقتهم ببعض وبالمرأة ومن ياترى القاتل من بينهم. قصة دارت بين الإمارات والمملكة العربية السعودية وسوريا.

اول مرة اقرأ للكاتب وقررت الا أعيد التجربة.

This is the second book of the Evorian Royals and although I did not read the first book I didn't feel that I missed anything, so it's quite a stand-alone book. But now I do plan on reading the first one so I would know what happened with the first brother.

Arnaud is a plastic surgeon who just got out of a relationship, but who has a reputation of being a playboy. He is approached by unknown to him people claiming to be his close family and that he is an Evorian Prince, and asking for his help to save their country.

Sasha is a reporter who is looking for a big story, so when she goes to the Film Festival and meets Arnaud she tries to dig deeper to know more about him and the Evorians.

A partnership between them evolves and they go around on a treasure hunt around France for keys to save a secret kingdom hidden in the hills between France and Italy.

It was exciting and charming at the same time. I totally enjoyed the interaction between Arnaud and Sasha, they are an adorable couple and the chemistry between them is amazing.

I was caught up in the story from the first page; the characters, the storyline, the setting, it was just amazing.

It's the first time for me to read by this author and it won't be the last.

I thank Booksprout for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
