Review: The Master Craftsman by:Kelli Stuart

 The Master Craftsman

*Disclosure*This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:

In 1917, Alma Pihl, a master craftsman in The House of FabergZ, was charged to protect one of the greatest secrets in Russian history--an unknown FabergZ Egg that Peter Karl FabergZ secretly created to honor his divided allegiance to both the people of Russia and the Imperial Czar's family. When Alma and her husband escaped Russia for their native Finland in 1921, she took the secret with her, guarding her past connection to the Romanov family.

Three generations later, world-renowned treasure hunter Nick Laine is sick and fears the secret of the missing egg will die with him. With time running out, he entrusts the mission of retrieving the egg to his estranged daughter, Ava, who has little idea of the dangers she is about to face. As the stakes are raised, Ava is forced to declare her own allegiance--and the consequences are greater than she could have imagined.

This modern-day treasure hunt from award-winning author Kelli Stuart transports you into the opulent and treacherous world of the Russian Revolution to unearth mysteries long buried.

My Review:

 What a neat way to connect modern day to the early 1900's era. Really great story of a secret treasure hunt to find a FabergĂ© Egg. This secret has spanned generations and now it is time for the secret and the egg to be passed down to the next generation. But Ava doesnt understand quite what trouble her father has incurred with trusting her with this secret. Reading like a treasure hunt type novel Ava will seek a treasure that is most elegant and appealing but very dangerous.

 This book does touch on Russian history which is very interesting and I feel that the dual-time novel is fitting for the storyline.

Overall, a great read!
