books that make you go hmmmm....

US Release Date:  December 29, 2009

In the glittering world of nineteenth-century opera, Sabine Conrad is a beloved star feted by New York’s high society. Ensnared by a man who both loves and controls her, Sabine risks everything—including her lustrous career—to break free from her lover. But her plan backfires; by the end of the night she is a criminal on the run from a grisly murder. Three years later, she is Marguerite, hiding out in Seattle and running a boxhouse—a low-class theater and brothel. No longer the prima donna she once was, and carefully guarding the secrets of her past, she has learned to survive on her own in a gritty frontier town, hidden among prostitutes, drunks, and miners. But then the past catches up with her to offer a terrifying proposition. Told in two voices, by the young Sabine and the wiser, older Marguerite, Prima Donna is a complex portrait of a mysterious woman who must find the strength to confront.


  1. hmmmmmmmm (lol)
    Books done in a past and present voice can be either really good or really bad. I hope this one turns out to be good because the storyline sounds interesting.

  2. Agreed Jessica. It sounds interesting. At least its not another Tudor book! :)

  3. Jessica - good point! It looks so promising, I have my fingers crossed.

    Ms.I - exactly...that should be enough of a reason to read it=)

  4. This looks interesting, I'm always on the lookout for books set in the west, especially in my hometown of Seattle. Only found one so far.....

  5. Ooooo!!! Love it! TBR is getting so out of control :)

  6. Wow, this sounds like it would either be really good or reallllly bad. lol.

    I gave you an award on my blog. :o)

  7. I read two of Megan Chance's other books (The Spiritualist; The Inconvenient Wife), and liked them. Her novels basically go according to a formula, but they're enjoyable nonetheless.
