- Mystery Mixed with Romance by Smiling Sally on 4/13/2012
Even though I prefer plots set in the present, I learn more from historic fiction. This novel offers both the present and the past. Interspersed throughout this contemporary novel are short chapters set 100 years ago, which follow Adele and Jocelyn, two cousins, close as sisters, aboard the Titanic, giving the reader a deeper insight into that historic tragedy. I feel that the balance between the time of Titanic and today are just right.
The characters are well-written. I most appreciate Kelsey, a modern-day, sharp, businesswoman. Included are a mystery and a smidgen of romance--something for everyone! The description of the interlocking hat pin has me wanting to begin a collection of them. Most people will enjoy this good read.
