Butterfly Palace

Look Inside HERE

I enjoy leaving-everything-behind-to-start-over stories. Butterfly Palace contains unique and believable characters and constantly twisting storyline. This mystery kept me guessing who the ‘bad guys’ were until the end, but sometimes I found the story hard to follow. I’ve read other Colleen Coble stories, but this one seemed different somehow—stilted pacing, and a darker tone.

The story is a myriad of mystery, murder, suspicion, guilt, and of course, romance. Some aspects of the story drew me in and others made me want to skip pages.

If I were to recommend a Colleen Coble book to a friend, it would probably be one of the Smitten books, or Rosemary’s Cottage—rather than this one. While Butterfly Palace has some appeal, her other books have made a bigger impact on me and kept my interest throughout the entire story.
