5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling, 11 Aug. 2003
This review is from: The Seduction of Water (Paperback)
Having read the Church of Dead Languages and loved it, I bought this book solely on my impression of the first book. I am so glad that I did as it was wonderful. I spent 6 hours transported in a world of love, mystery, intrigue and fairytale. Iris, accidentally agrees to write a memoir of her writer mother, and to find the missing 'third' book that her mother never got to publish. She gets caught up in the world of the Hotel Equinox which seems far removed from real life, and many of the characters are central to Iris. Everyone has a secret, everyone has ulterior motives, but they all are so reticent to share and polite with it (except for Phoebe).
The intrigue and need to unravel the plot really keeps you gripped to this book, it is a perfect novel, with a mixture of everything you need to retain suspense. Carol Goodman is a very taleneted writer and I hope she keeps weaving the spell for many years to come.
