Deadly Jewels by Jeannette de Beauvoir


This was an amazing read.

The tale begins with the heroine, Martine LeDuc, taking a Grayline tour of her Montreal, to remind herself why she loves her city.

Intertwined throughout the story is the tale of a German spy, during World War II--and important part of the whole story about the crown jewels of England being hidden away in Montreal for safety during the war years.

Being from the US and never having visited Canada, I was fascinated with what I learned about Montreal--making me want to visit while being drawn into this fascinating mystery.

The history of a part of the Holocaust, Nazis during World War II, and a touch of magic add to the complexities of this mystery.

There are many twists and turns and plenty of surprises, including the reveal at the end, which was totally unexpected.

I highly recommend Deadly Jewels.

I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review--and I am so glad I had the chance to read it.
