Amazing! Super read! Even though this book is part if the Gastie
Amazing! Super read!
Even though this book is part if the Gastien series, it can stand alone with no problem. This was a very intense story, filled with love, drama and personal awareness. I became completely involved as Giselle tells her story about her life and the life of the baby she raised. The love she had for Laurent was like no other, one we all wish that we could find that one true love. There were many twists and turns in the book that I did not see coming. What a reading adventure!

I received ¿Giselle: Keeper of the Flame¿ from Caddy for review.
I received “Giselle: Keeper of the Flame” from Caddy for review. This is the fourth book in the historic Gastien family saga. Giselle, Gastien’s (book 1-2) only daughter, continues the artistic bloodline of the family with her medium being fashion. Giselle, like her brother Tristan (book 3), proves to be successful in business but not so much in love. She’s less….I’ll word this nicely….promiscuous than her father and brother which made me want her to find happiness all the more. I had some issues with her and Laurent’s relationship. I was prepared to overlook their much too instantaneous marriage but once their relationship takes a dramatic turn, I could not continue to tolerate them as a couple. Being the history dork that I am, I enjoy how Caddy integrates real historic events into her stories. I find it a lot more interesting to read history from a fictional character’s perspective. The end of the book starts to focus more on Giselle’s nephew, Gastien (not to be confused with his namesake grandfather). I’m not sure how I feel about young Gastien. As appealing as it is to want to continue the artistic talent of a family through every generation, I was hoping Caddy would give young Gastien a different niche to pursue. A lot of Gastien’s personality reminded me way too much of his grandfather and it bothers me that if he’s too similar, he won’t be a memorable character. I enjoyed Giselle’s character much more than her brother Tristan’s from the last book (which I rated 3 stars). After considering all my feelings I give “Giselle: The Keeper of the Flame” 3/5 stars as well. Although I liked her character better, I simply couldn’t accept her relationship with Laurent. Caddy continues to create drama for this family and she does it so well but there are just certain things I can’t handle and this story contained one of them. I look forward to reading young Gastien’s story and discovering the man he will become.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I Recommend this Complete Series !!
Giselle: Keeper of The Flame is Book four in this series and is just as Amazing as the others. It grabbed hold of me and I couldn't put it down. All the characters are seperated with their own personalities, which makes the series and this book unique and life like. I respect the role of Giselle, and the responsabilities that she has taken on. I almost wish for Gastien and Jacques to be together, which I'm sure after the horrible situation they was in at the end, it will at least, bring them a little closer to each other. I am excited for the next book in this series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Caddy Rowland is a talented Author that has done everything except disappoint with this Series. But you Must Read The First Three Books in this series to completely understand and enjoy it.
