The Evelyn Project Book Review


Synopsis:

A loving father's cry for help gets into the wrong hands, and a hundred years later things get out of control.

Evelyn’s father did everything that was in his power to save his dying daughter, black magic included. But when a century later his plea for help gets into the wrong hands, all hell breaks loose.

Caught in the slippery battlefield between the Vatican and a cult that wants to change the past, a young Italian professor and a beautiful French aspiring actress are too busy running away from murder and conspiracy to let physical attraction develop into love.

And it doesn’t help that Her Majesty's Secret Service decides to take an interest in what everybody else is doing and to pull some strings of its own. Quite the contrary, in fact…

My Review:


I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. What would you do if someone required your assistance to bring someone back to life?  Franco Lorenzi lives a mundane life as a professor; everything seems fine until James Easby calls upon him to assist a distant relative.  This is when his life suddenly becomes chaotic and endangered.  At a party thrown by Easby, Franco becomes enraptured by a beautiful young Parisian actress, Eva Thibault.  Their attraction is instant and although a seemingly unlikely pair, they become a force to be reckoned with.  Who can they trust?  Can they even trust each other?

This was a fascinating fast paced novel that toggles between 1894 and 2009.  We also travel from Italy, Paris, London and Switzerland as we search for information and letters regarding The Evelyn Project.  This was an amazingly creative story that kept me turning pages.  There were so many twists in the story that I couldn’t put the book down!  I loved the main characters, they were so determined.  I appreciated the fact that the romance wasn’t rushed and it was worked in perfectly.  I think this was a great paranormal mystery that everyone will enjoy!



 

About the Author:

Kfir was born and raised in Italy, and moved to Israel as a teenager. He acquired the love for the English language from his father, a former U.S. soldier and WWII veteran, a voracious reader and a prolific writer. With a PhD in chemical engineering and a long family history that he needs to live up to, Kfir work as a patent attorney and heads the patent law firm that was established by his great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869. Kfir lives in Omer, Israel, with his full-time partner, Esther, their four children, Michal, Lilach, Tamar and Yonatan, and the dog Elvis. Writing has always been Kfir's passion and for almost four years he wrote a weekly "Patents" column in Globes (Israel’s financial newspaper), which also yielded his only (if he can help it) non-fiction book, THE WORLD OF PATENTS, (a not-so-boring tale of what patents are about, in Hebrew), which was published in 2002 by Globes Press. Kfir loves writing short stories but has too many novels waiting to be written (and possibly not enough years ahead of him to write them all), so now he mostly writes full-length fiction. His other passion is working with other authors on stories he loves and that's how he wound up serving on the editorial board of The Harrow Press as Anthology Editor. You can read about Kfir's books here. He loves them all, but never had greater fun than when working on “HAVE BOOK WILL TRAVEL”, a YA fantasy that he wrote together with his son, Yonatan.
