I've read all of Sarah Jio's previous books, and had pretty much the same experience with them. I couldn't put them down and then, at the end, thought that the story was pretty cheesy, formulaic, predictable, and tied up too neatly. So why do I keep going back??
The story centers around the rare and coveted Middlebury Pink camellia plant. The story takes place on an estate in England, but the two inter-connected story lines alternate between pre-WWII and present day. Mystery, murder, and secrets abound.
I suppose I could mildly recommend this book if you're looking for an easy-to-read, light, predictable summer book. It would be perfect for an afternoon by the pool.
