Book Review: Gilda Joyce - The Bones of the Holy
The Bones of the Holy by Jennifer Allison (Gilda Joyce series)
**This book will be released on 6/9/11.**
This week, amidst the craziness, I read the galley version of Gilda Joyce - The Bones of the Holy. It has to be the most thrilling - and creepy - out of all five of Gilda's investigations. The main plot line (a summary from the back) is that Mrs. Joyce is being remarried to a man by the name of Eugene Pook - whose personality matches his name. Mr. Pook, an antiques shop owner, has a very shady past. His ex-fiance left him to supposedly go to Europe. But is she really there or is Eugene hiding a dark secret?
In the chilling setting of St. Augustine, Florida, there are plenty of ghosts. Jennifer Allison uses a lot of things from history too, from mentions of the KKK to histories of families and early settlings dating back to the 1500s! Combining American history, which can be very boring, and Gilda's spunky attitude, this book is a winner! I can't wait to read it again in June!
