The Bronte Plot by Katherine Reay
I wasn’t sure what to think of this book based on the title. I have never read the Bronte sisters’ works so I had no basis to draw from. Basically, the story begins with Lucy, an assistant to an antiques dealer, who is secretly altering the value of the books she sells by adding a note to each book to inflate their value. When she sells one of her books to her boyfriend, James, her ploy is discovered and he breaks it off with her. But his grandmother, who the book was purchased for, pays a visit to Lucy and makes an offer to have Lucy travel with her to visit the town she lived in when she was young. Helen, the grandmother, had a secret of her own and time was short to make it right again. I enjoyed the story but I would probably not read it again. It was more of a time filler than a book that really resonated with me. Some of the plot twists were well done, but I never really connected with the characters.
