This book started out with some very interesting premises - the conception of were-cats and their connection with the Egyptian pantheon. Also, the details about Isabelle's profession were a very nice touch. I got the impression that Zoe LaPage had definitely done her research well and it really adds to the book. The story had good flow and characterization; it was certainly an enjoyable read. What was slightly jarring at times was the over characterization and dramatization; it was also odd to have the narration go from first person to third person. The POV shifts did add to the story, but first to third person was strange. However, the entire story was very much interesting and I'll be looking forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
When Isabelle Renard moves to the Loire Valley to restore a five hundred-year-old fresco, she doesn't expect to fall in love with Jules Valdrome, a handsome and enigmatic Frenchman who turns out to be a shape-shifting werecat. She is bitten by a renegade, vampire werecat and soon learns that the secret of breaking the curse is hidden within the mysterious symbols of a fourteenth-century fresco.
