4/5 stars

This novel was confusing at first, but it didn’t take long before I was hooked and wanted to keep reading more.

This book is about a set of twins named Sophie and Joseph Hannigan. They move from their hometown in NY to the beautiful city of Venice.

Joseph is an artist and Sophie is his muse. From the start, I found the relationship between the twins to be interesting to say the least. I couldn’t figure them out.

At once, I fell in love with Chance’s way of painting a picture for her readers. I felt like I was in Venice with the twins. It made me want to sit in a gondola and waste the afternoon away, watching people.

The way she digs deep into all the characters in her book is amazing. I felt like I knew each one of them personally. I was lost in this book, yet for the most part, I was still confused about what it was actually about! Haha, as crazy as that sounds, it’s true.

Sophie and Joseph are looking to strike it big. They want money. But who doesn’t? Joseph is talented, and needs to be able to sell his art. Sophie is such a mysterious creature. She tells the most fascinating stories. She’s an alluring character who draws people in easily.

IMG_8205This novel is one where the chapters switch back and forth between who is telling the story. The chapters switch from Sophie, Nicholas, and OdilΓ©.

Nicholas is a man who is fascinated by the Hannigan twins. He can’t quite grasp their strong connection, which is exactly how I felt.

OdilΓ© is the woman who ruined and saved Nicholas.

These three tell such an amazing story, and truly make Inamorata an irresistible book.

I did an online search for the definition of “inamorata,” and got: “a person’s female lover.” I’d say that’s pretty accurate for this book.

There were two things that disturbed me in this book. The first is the relationship between the Hannigan twins. The second is the Hannigan’s childhood.

What I loved about this book was how I just couldn’t put it down. I wanted to know more and more! OdilΓ© was the ultimate mysterious character. I wished she didn’t exist in the book sometimes! I felt for Sophie and her wants. I wanted to meet Nicholas myself. & I wish I knew someone as talented and charismatic as Joseph.

I’d recommend this book if you want an interesting read that’s a little different. I only gave it 4/5 stars because I was confused and disturbed throughout the book. Other than that, it was truly an interesting read. I definitely haven’t come across a book like this one before, that’s for sure.
