Review: The Lost Melody by:J Politano

 The Lost Melody

About the Review:

When concert pianist Vivienne Mourdant's father dies, he leaves to her the care of an adult ward she knew nothing about. The woman is supposedly a patient at Hurstwell Asylum. The woman's portrait is shockingly familiar to Vivienne, so when the asylum claims she was never a patient there, Vivienne is compelled to discover what happened to the figure she remembers from childhood dreams.

The longer she lingers in the deep shadows and forgotten towers at Hurstwell, the fuzzier the line between sanity and madness becomes. She hears music no one else does, receives strange missives with rose petals between the pages, and untangles far more than is safe for her to know. But can she uncover the truth about the mysterious woman she seeks? And is there anyone at Hurstwell she can trust with her suspicions?

My Review:

 Vivienne's father passes and leaves to her a woman in an Asylum. She knows nothing of this person but does have some memories of her from her childhood. I knew right away who it could be, but continued on. Soon there are strange things that take place in her life, that just simply cannot be explained. It was interesting to see how these weaved into the original storyline.

 I feel okay with the book but it seemed a lot of it just really didnt appeal to me. I'm sure if it had I would of given it a better review. It was sort of lacking which was irritating. I really did not get into it as much as I thought I would. The story does have many elements, even many twists and turns but in my opinion it just didnt strike a cord with me.

 Overall, the book is well written and does have a strong storyline. Just wasnt for me.
