Book Review: The Vatican Princess: C W Gortner

Dear reader I just finished reading “The Vatican Princess: A Novel of Lucrezia Borgia” by C.W. Gortner. I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet because have been curious about the Borgias ever since I read about them in “The Poisoner Mysteries” series by Sara Poole(I highly recommend them), because I have enjoyed most of C.W. Gortner’s other books, and because it was on sale for $1.99. My personal review of the book is as follows:

I understand that incest is known historical suspicion in the Borgias history however for me personally it still felt a bit over the top. As for Lucrezia herself I appreciated the way that she seemed to be able to stay true to herself and stand up for herself now matter what it cost her.

I do feel like if you enjoyed watching the HBO series about them then you’ll probably enjoy this book as well. Overall I personally rate this book a 5 out of 10. Happy reading dear reader 😊.  Please like and share this review if you enjoyed  it doing so helps me to get approved by publishers and authors for future books and helps others to find my reviews 💜.
