Title: The Lost Concerto

Author: Helaine Mario

Chapters: 92

Pages: 430

This book was down-right amazing.  I definitely had to re-start it when my toddler little girl was asleep, so I could fully focus on the story.  This story starts off with a woman and her son trying to escape from what appears to be a very scary person.  From then on, you on our your toes with every single story within each chapter.

There are three separate parts to this novel.  Parts 1,2, and 3.

Part 1(Lost)

Where the author Helaine Mario, set the characters of the story up so well.  The descriptions of each person involved, was unbelievable.  I have no knowledge of music, yet the way the author made the connection from the music and lyrics to each of the main characters was astonishing.

Part 2 (Searching)

Where one of the main characters was convinced by a CIA agent to find out the truth of what happened to her friend and her friends son (her godson).  This section went back and forth with what each character (the good and the bad ones) was feeling at different moments throughout one day.  It seemed as if so much time was passing in this section between everyone, yet it all happened so quickly in a mere few days.

Part 3 (Found)

This was of course my favorite part of the novel.  It had a long of big french words and locations that I had a little trouble pronouncing in my head, but that did not keep me one bit from understanding what was happening.  This section was where all of the answers from the first two parts came about, and even when you thought you had all of it figured out, the ending was the most shocking of all.

I would definitely give this review 5 out of 5 stars, and I would highly recommend it!  To purchase the book you may click here.  I love the fact that this novel is such a great read for anyone, especially those of us who like to solve a good mystery! 🙂
