Review: The House of a Thousand Lanterns

User Review  - Nicole - Goodreads

This book had the usual Victoria Holt twists but she repeated herself so many times. I kept thinking, "We know this already! Get on with it!" I would still recommend this book but I think it's my least favorite book of hers I've read so far. Read full review

User Review  - Alexandra - Goodreads

For my first book into Holt I am rather underwhelmed. The set up was interesting with the Chinese artifacts but I found Janey too whiny to be likable. Read full review
