I feel like I went on a roller coaster while reading this book but not in the way I expected. I love anything with a Tudor connection so the long lost relative angle was really interesting to me. Leo is a professor who thinks that Amy is a descendent of Katherine Parr and heir to a castle whose history he’s desperately trying to save. He pops up in her life and is frankly a little unnecessarily creepy at first. I didn’t care much for her early on either. But I was intrigued by the concept so I stuck with it and I’m glad I did.
I would find it hard to actually classify this book because there are so many aspects. You have that historical mystery plot but that is not the bulk of the story. Leo and Amy each have intriguing backstories that are revealed as they get closer and closer. There is way more action than I expected as we learn just how Leo and Amy live their lives. It’s hard to give more details without spoilers but if you’re looking for a story with unusual characters, a little romance, a lot of intrigue and all sorts of action, give this one a try! ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
Thanks to Booksparks for a copy of this novel. All opinions above are my own.
Do you have any famous ancestors?
One thought on “REVIEW: Long Lost Jules”
I enjoyed this one too. I had no idea what to expect going in and was very pleasantly surprised by the unexpected twists and turns! And I do have one famous ancestor that I know of: Dr. David Livingstone, the missionary and explorer (of Africa).
