The Bronte Plot by Katherine Reay

I received this book from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for a fair and  honest review

Published: November 3, 2015
'Number of pages: 352
Genre: Fiction

Lucy Alling makes a living selling rare books, often taking suspicious measures to reach her goals. When her unorthodox methods are discovered, Lucy's secret ruins her relationship with her boss and her boyfriend James—leaving Lucy in a heap of hurt, and trouble. Something has to change; she has to change.

In a sudden turn of events, James's wealthy grandmother Helen hires Lucy as a consultant for a London literary and antiques excursion. Lucy reluctantly agrees and soon discovers Helen holds secrets of her own. In fact, Helen understands Lucy's predicament better than anyone else.

As the two travel across England, Lucy benefits from Helen's wisdom, as Helen confronts the ghosts of her own past. Everything comes to a head at Haworth, home of the Brontë sisters, where Lucy is reminded of the sisters' beloved heroines, who, with tenacity and resolution, endured—even in the midst of change.

Now Lucy must go back into her past in order to move forward. And while it may hold mistakes and regrets, she will prevail—if only she can step into the life that's been waiting for her all along.

What did I think of this book:
This is the first book that I have read by Katherine and I am looking forward to going back to read the other books she wrote. The whole subject of this book is what caught my eye and made me want to read it. I enjoyed that there was a lot of talks of books in this story. It was fun to read about how Lucy was reaching her goals, but at the same time she found out the hard way that it was not worth it. Then she gets a break to work as a consultant for the London literary and antiques excursion. The author did a good job of including the Bronte sisters in the story which for me was an added bonus. I felt the the way the author wrote it made me feel as if I was a part of the story. A good story.
