First of all I must say that this is Sarah’s best book yet. She writes a great story. I found The Curiosity Keeper to be full of mystery, danger, treasure, betrayal and love. I didn’t want to put it down.
Camille works in her father’s Curiosity Shop on a street in London that breeds only the hardest of people. When danger strikes she is thrown into a puzzle she didn’t know existed. Jonathan is an Apothecary. Normally he would never visit the shop Camille works at – but a curious mix of events throws them together. With love and treasure there is always a darkness that is covered. Is Jonathan and Camille what they say they are? Who is being betrayed?
Part of the reason this book was so enjoyable was that I loved the fresh set of events and settings. Most regency novels escape into castles and amazing gardens on grand estates. This book takes you into the seedy streets of London where thieves and scoundrels rule, while the weak are crushed. You will find yourself wanting to stand in Camille’s Curiosity Shop and have a look around yourself.
A truly enjoyable read. Don’t miss it.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
