The knowledge that I would be reading a book that involved Italy and the city of Florence, Italy in particular was what originally drew me to this book, The Girl in the Glass by Susan Meissner. The synopsis sounded interesting, too, but truly it was about location, location! And I can say I was not disappointed.
I also found myself really liking several of the characters, including the protagonist. They seemed real and engaging.
The plot itself was definitely good, with just enough suspense to keep you wanting to read more, without being a bonafide suspense or thriller! There were some very quotable phrases. I dogeared them to return and read them again!
I had never had the pleasure of reading anything written by Susan Meissner. But this book was a splendid introduction to her works! I highly recommend it, I give it a 5/5 stars!
