THE JULIET CODE by Pepper Basham, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #NewRelease

Freddie and Grace Mystery #3

“Marriage was a very exciting, romantic and sometimes life-threatening adventure.”

Honeymooning in Venice in 1914, Grace Percy and her darling husband, Frederick, are caught up in adventure again. After chasing a thief who stole her purse, Grace and Freddy are surprised to find their friend detective Jack Miracle who has an intriguing mystery for them. Soon they are at a magnificent villa on a private island investigating stolen paintings. The Juliets, nine paintings of the play Romeo and Juliet, hold clues as yet to be solved.

A story on par with Agatha Christie, this book is perfectly delicious with its air of mystery, the delightful interaction of Grace and Freddy, a constant reminder that God directs our paths, and exciting scenes that have you gasping and turning pages rapidly.

I want more stories about Freddy and Grace!
