The Reader’s Room
Violaine LePage is the editor and manager of the readers’ room for a French publishing house. She has decided to publish a book entitled Sugar Flowers, but no one seems to know who the author is. Violaine gets some messages that suggest the author is aware of her past. If that isn’t bad enough, events in the book, particularly several murders, begin to look like real murders. The police now want to know who wrote the book, and if he or she is a serial killer. But is Violaine really in the dark? Does she know who the author is? And how much does the author know about Violiane’s past?
I love Antoine Laurain’s work, and The Readers’ Room is no exception. It is beautifully written and cleverly told. The story has a little bit of everything including a love story, a mystery, and enough about the literary world to entertain the most discerning reader. His characters are always so much fun, and the way he draws on the world of books in this one is marvelous. He never fails to add a touch of magic to his work. After this riveting story, I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
