The Painted Veil based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I usually read romantic comedy or contemporary romance when I'm in the mood for a love story, but I also really enjoy historical romances, especially when they're done right. The Painted Veil by Susan Carroll is definitely done right. From the first line, you're whisked away to a cold, foggy London scene and once you get wrapped up in this book, it's hard to put it down. Those that live for books that are written in a way that you can see the landscape, smell the air, and even taste the foods, will love Susan Carroll.
