Butterfly Palace is my first novel from author Colleen Coble From what I understand Coble writes secular fiction as well as istorical Christian fiction which is very *evident in this novel as it strays away * in this novel as it strays away a religious tone The Butterfly Palace as a interesting mystery plot but struggled to Nancy Drake hold my interest all the way through The plot of the Butterfly Palace is worthy of details and character development With those aspects included this couldave been a 5 star read At roughly alf way through the book I was ready to get to the climax and to the revealing of the servant girl killer true identity The revealing also did not provide the reader with the shock of surprise as I guessed the murderer
S TRUE IDENTITY I M NOTtrue identity I m not right Also several of the deaths included in the story are uite descriptive ad could ave toned down a bit for my tasteThe relationship of our two main characters Lilly Drew seemed to be purely physical as most references of their fondness to one another concerned their outward appearances I didn t Everglades (Doc Ford Mystery, have the urgency to root for their romance in the least bitI ll be picking up another novel by Cobel in the future as Iave a few in my TBR pile Wow This book totally took me by surprise I started this book without much Kicking It (Alex Craft, hope for itbut it totally surprised me I enjoyed the mystery and suspense I think Belle was my favorite 35 stars DNFed around 20% I am not much of a mystery fan and this one is just not for me Lilly is a typical small town Mary Sue It s not my fault everybody likes me promotes me Not even a day sinceer arrival and everybody in that Homeport household commented oner adorable looks Sapphamire (Dragons of Dragonose her blond longair and of course she is instantly promoted from kitchen servant to maid servant The Donovan Legacy (Donovans hairdresser and dress councelor Eye roll Since Iaven t come close to finishing it I can t say if the mystery is good or not I know who the killer is though Breaking Down (The Garage, hahaha won t tell But the rest of the book reads like a very bad Nora Roberts and evener books are average at best I keep telling myself that life is too short to read bad writing But since I write a lot of bad writing myself it s all a moot point yoI downloaded Butterfly Palace via Overdrive from my public library system So my local tax dollars ave already paid for this Okay not dollars More like bits and pieces of pocket change lint in.
