Synopsis: Sarah is a PhD candidate in musicology living in Boston. She is, to say at the very least, a Beethoven expert. When she gets an invitation to help restore artifacts from a historical and rich family who are looking to put all their artifacts into a museum. Within these artifacts include information on Beethoven. But when Sarah gets there, she realizes that there is a lot more going on than opening a museum. This story is filled of mystery, murder, time travel, politics, and romance.
Review: I really really enjoyed this one. It had been on my list for awhile so when I saw it on Paperback Book Swap I knew I had to try it out. There was so much going on in this story that I couldn’t put it down. I love Sarah, Nicolas and Max, they are flawed characters but still so likeable that you couldn’t help root for them. The Senator (who you learn more about as the story goes on) is just the right amount of evil and politics to make you dislike her. At first, I didn’t understand the purpose of her story but it definitely adds an element to it that makes the story even more interesting (ps it made me dislike politics even more if that was possible). Then you have all the other academics and Pols just trying to do their best during a time that is scary.
The music and time travel really had me, I love both concepts and adding a mystery to the already jam packed story of Beethoven, Prague and Royalty was why I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. This all sort of reminded me of Discovery of Witches, which I think is why I enjoyed it so much.
I can’t wait to read the sequel!
