The Vatican Princess by C.W. Gortner

August 26, 2017 Whitney Review 0 Comments

First Impressions: The Vatican Princess by C.W. Gortner is an intriguing narrative of the Borgias.  There is drama, backstabbing and poison all tied up in one neat package.  I was immediately entranced. What I Liked: The pacing of the novel was fantastic. I was on the edge of my seat waiting upon the next conniving […]

Even if I had not seen the movie before hand I could have seen where the story was going. Although, being predictable was not my biggest complaint with The Notebook. […]
