⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Although this started out slowly for me, once the mystery was introduced, I enjoyed the way it unfolded in both timelines. Davis skillfully overlays a fictional story on real historical facts, people, and art. I thought Helen and Lilly‘s relationship was particularly interesting, but some other characters felt a bit flat. #BOTM

This was almost a so-so from me, because I find this level of violence tiring and there were an awful lot of typos and that drove me crazy (I notice that a lot with #botm books). But I did enjoy the underlying story so I gave it a pick even though it wasn‘t exactly to my taste.

The confirmed February #BOTM picks! The jury's out on whether or not I'll skip, it might come down to how good the add-ons are. And how awful is that Vladimir cover?! 🙈

Alfoster Loved The Golden Couple!❤️👏 1d
Brooke_H That cover was cracking me up before I even read your comment. 🤣 1d

Megabooks Going to look these up this weekend! Thanks!! 😁😁 1d
Branwen I burst out laughing when I saw the Vladimir cover! Then I laughed even harder after reading your comment! 🤣😂 1d
Branwen I am absolutely getting A River Enchanted and also Peach Blossom Spring, which looks SO GOOD! And hopefully there will be some good add-ons as well! 1d
Kimberlone I won Vladimir from a Goodreads giveaway, and I‘m super excited to read that, but I haven‘t heard of any of these others. I‘ll need to explore deeper to see if any of them are of interesting enough for a BOTM pick. I‘m trying to be more selective about my BOTM choices this year since I have so many on my TBR still. 1d
Christyco125 I‘m with you. I may be skipping these. 1d
BarbaraBB That cover indeed 😂😂 1d
Breanne1 Every month I look forward to this tag, thanks @swishandflick ! I need to look in to these, haven‘t really heard of them. Without looking at synopsis I can tell I‘ll probably be skipping Vladimir… 11h
Reviewsbylola I‘ll probably go library with Vladimir and Don‘t Cry For Me. I don‘t care for either cover so I‘m not going to bother buying them. I‘m going with Peach Blossom Spring. 5h
Amor4Libros I read The Golden Couple and loved it!! 1h

What a great way to kick of #BOTM for 2022! I really enjoyed my first experience with Davis‘ writing! With dual timelines- 1919 and 1966, both revolve around the Frick- first as a household and later as a museum and how it comes to dramatically change the lives of two very different models. Entertaining and quite the page turner, I really liked the historical details and art included- plus reading this has added five other titles to my wishlist!

Word on the street is that this book is a #BOTM pick for February. The synopsis sounds interesting but that cover is 😖🙈

ICantImReading Agree this looks really good, but I would need to burn the cover! 😂 1d
Kimberlone I love the campy cover! 1d
sprainedbrain I totally requested this one on NetGalley *because* of the cover. 😂 1d

We barely hit above zero today, so Peri and I didn't do much of a walk this evening. Instead we're camped on the couch. I'm starting this #botm.
