the fairy tale she had been looking for Life dealt Cady Drake a rough handOrphaned nearly at birth she bounced from foster home to foster home throughout her childhood each time growing and jaded Cady was a bad seed through and throughthat is until she met Maxine a wonderfully grumpy old women determined to turn that bad seed into something new It was then in the junk shop during reading lessons and antiue restoration that teenage Cady really began to live And after all who said a bad seed couldn t sometimes grow into a decent tree In present day Cady is a photographer manages to have a couple of close friends and is the proud owner of Gus a carousal rabbit from FranceAnd then the unthinkable happens and Maxine is gone Once again Cady feels completely adrift Cady was on a merry go round and no matter how fast she galloped she kept winding up at the same place Olivia one of Cady s few friends realizes just how close Cady is to snapping She has a proposal for her talented photographer friend Because you re bound to remain anonymous if you don t get your art out there for people to see Taking student portraits might pay the bills but you re an artist And I can be your patron Sort of At least I can manage a plane ticket And after a few disgruntled and half hearted arguments Cady is off to France with faithful Gus in tow for a carousal photography assignment She s

a whole new perspective on the matterIn addition Cady was a fresh and fabulous main character Juliet Blackwell made Cady wondrously flawed and hilariously human I wish I could just sweep her up into a hugI loved the way the flashbacks and current day timelines blended seamlessly into a wonderfully tight knit story Many times when I read stories with multiple timelines I tend to get caught up in one timeline and end up ignoring the others in my rush to find out what happens I m happy to report that this was definitely not the case Each timeline was masterfully done And of course my absolute favorite part was any scene with the grumpy old man in it there s just something about a gruff old guy with a heart of gold that wins me over every timeDefinitely one to check out asapAudiobook CommentsWhile I did not listen to the audiobook version I do want to mention Cady s absolute love of them When Cady discovered audiobooks she thought she had gone to heaven and eagerly devoured one

Pular tourist The Lost PDF or attractions of Provence Once a bustling and dignified ancestral estate now all that remains is the château's gruff elderly owner and the softly whispered secrets of generations buried and forgotten But time has a way of exposing history's dark stains and when American photographer Cady Drake finds herself drawn to the châ When I finished this book I was left feeling underwhelmed I guess I was hoping for something given it had elements that I normally love in stories such as a socially awkward main character and a decades old mystery taking place in Europe Maybe I have been reading too many of these type of books lately and that s why I didn t really find anything special about this novel Cady Drake grew up in the foster care system and is now a photographer in Oakland She is sent on assignment to France to take photos of carousels for a book She is intrigued when she hears about a chateau in Provence with a carousel but in order to take photos for her book she s going to have to get the permission of the crusty old owner who might be keeping a family secret or two So the setting and food descriptions were perfect and I did like how the book explored Cady growing up in the foster care system I even enjoyed the parts of the story in the early 1900s and the female who works for Monsieur Bayol a carousel carver who actually existed in real life and served as a little bit of inspiration to the author to write this work of fiction And while I didn t mind the character of Fabrice in the present I found myself losing interest when the story would shift back to his time during World War 2 While the book might not have been amazing it certainly wasn t a bad reading experience I would definitely be open to reading other books by the authorI won a free copy of this book in a giveaway but was under no obligation to post a review All views expressed are my honest opinion

    When I finished this book I was left feeling underwhelmed I guess I was hoping for something given it had elements that I normally love in stories such as a socially awkward main character and a decades old mystery taking place in Europe Maybe I have been reading too many of these type of books lately and that's why I didn't really

    I almost didn't reuest this book but I am glad I did I found I got so involved in the storyline I couldn't put it down instead read far into the night I had problems reading the parts of the Nazis occupation of France I felt that Ms Blackwell did an outstanding job of blending the three time periods so the story flew togetherCady Drake is recovering from the death of her mentor and agrees to accept a job in Paris of photographing
