The London Game by Alyssa Linn Palmer - Review and Giveaway

 The London Game

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: August 10, 2015
Number of pages: 300
Genre: Mystery
Series: Le Chat Rouge #3

The game isn’t over. Art dealer Marc Perron relocates to London with his lover, singer Sera Durand, to protect her from past mistakes. Blackmailed by a gangster, he must return to Paris, leaving Sera alone and vulnerable. Forging a precious painting may be his only chance at survival, but if he’s found out, the consequences will be deadly. Without Marc, Sera struggles in an English-speaking country, coming face to face with his lies, his sexual past, and her own misdeeds. Finding a job at a jazz club called ‘Sanctuary’ is anything but, as she is not safe from her new boss, or the disturbing man who spies on her every move. Once more, the lovers must play the game, but the stakes are higher than they imagined… 

What did I think of this book
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I plan on going back and reading the other two books in this series now that I have finished this one. I do wish that I would have read them in order but I was able to understand and enjoy this book out of order. The author pays great attention to detail and makes you feel as if you are a part of the story. All the characters were well developed and real. The story moved along at a steady pace and kept me wanting more and not wanting to put the book down. I liked how she gave you just enough that you thought you knew what was happening but then gave you a twist so that you were rethinking what you already thought. I really like Marc and Sera's relationship and how he feels the need to protect her from her mistakes in life. If you are looking for adventure mixed with some romance this is the book for you.
