THE JIGSAW PUZZLE by Ros Gemmell gets LADYBUGGED
one of my favorite themes.
one of my sub genre favorite PARANORMAL themes...
THE JIGSAW PUZZLE has them BOTH...how lucky can you get? This is my second Ros Gemmell read, so I had high expectations after reading
SUMMER OF THE EAGLES.
Let me begin by saying the cover done by CK Volnek is powerful, and since covers are the first thing any of us get a chance to look at when looking for something to read, that's a very good thing for it to be.
Well Done CK and Ros.
Ms Gemmell is a truly gifted author coming to us from the magical land of Scotland, and although she writes for Tweens, she crosses many bridges to speak to those of us NOT tweenish any more.
In THE JIGSAW PUZZLE she gifts her reading fans with an adventure that takes two cousins seemingly as unlike as night and day and throws them into an adventure that is both harrowing and thrilling.
A puzzle is found in the attic of the cottage Amy and her mother live in that Daniel is visiting. On the box cover is a picture of the very cottage from long ago they are all staying in right now. The kids decide to put it together, but as they do the cottage begins to change, becoming the cottage in the puzzle...or they think it does.
What does it mean?
THE JIGSAW PUZZLE is an edge of your seat, magical adventure you'll love whether you're a tween or not.
FIVE STARS I award this rich TIME TRAVEL Fantasy...and hope, from the way this story ends, we'll be led through more Amy, Danielle, and Aunt Jill adventures from Ms. Gemmell's delicious mind in the not too distant future.
