Book Review: The Lost Concerto


This is my most recent read and it's a mystery thriller. 

The story is about a woman Maggie who has lost her husband & her best friend and her godson is missing. She's a musician, but the deaths and sufferings are tearing her apart from her music. She couldn't feel it anymore. The worst thing that can happen to someone who loves art or music.

 The story is about loss, revenge, nightmares and past. Set in France, Maggie with the company of a military man, Colonel Beckett, starts her adventure. Including classical music, CIA, WWII stolen art pieces and dark secrets, Maggie is on her to find her godson, search for a long lost loved one and find herself & her music again. My favorite part would be the heroin is not some twenty-something but a grown 48 years old smart woman with a son who's going to be a father.

This book is divided into 3 parts. 
Lost
Search
Found


Coming over her greatest fears & nightmares, Maggie will have to stay strong and keep searching for her godson. So so so many plot twists and turns in the story that I couldn't put it down. Starting was a little bit slow, the Lost part. But the Found part is definitely is my favorite. SO many things happening and so many secrets being revealed. This is why I love this genre.

I've never listened to any classical music before but I did listen to Beethoven's music after reading this novel and I'm already obsessed with Beethoven's 5th symphony. It's dark & beautiful. There are so many parts in the novel where classical music is included in the most beautiful way, if you love classical music, THIS NOVEL IS A MUST. 

My favorite words from the Colonel Beckett.

I'd rate this book 4.5/5. Definitely suggest to read this guys!

Have you read this book? What's your favorite book genre?

  2. Mystery isn't really my go-to genre. But this definitely sounds interesting. I love books that are divided into parts. And that quote you highlighted is so beautifully said!
