I couldn’t put The Bracelet by Dorothy Love down. Set in Savannah just before the Civil War in 1858 the author did an awesome job describing the setting and pulling you in with her secrets and mystery. The Browning family is a prominent family that finds themselves shrouded in family secrets and lies. Celia Browning is in love with Sutton Mackay and has been since they were children. The secrets threaten their relationship and the Browning family’s social standing. Celia receives threats and a bracelet that represents a deadly message.
The author did such a wonderful job introducing her characters. I could imagine the homes, the sounds and the smells of the time. I could see the imagery that she portrayed. All of it served to keep me interested. I would find myself staying up way too late reading. She throws in crime, mystery, history, romance and scandal. This book is well rounded and could appeal to a number of readers who enjoy such.
I would recommend this book to others. I received this book at no charge from www.booklookbloggers.com in exchange for an honest review.
