The Pursuit of Pearls by Jane Thynne


Germany is on the brink of war, and actress turned spy Clara Vine must decide if she will stay in Germany as it grows more dangerous, or return to England.

She is shocked when Lottie Franke is murdered. Lottie was an aspiring costume designer who apprenticed at Clara’s film studio, and a student at the prestigious Faith and Beauty school, which trains girls to one day be the wives of top Nazi members. Clara begins to find clues that Lottie’s death could be tied to those in the highest ranks of the Reich.

This is the fourth book in the Clara Vine series.

There’s not too much I can say about this one. I have the same issues with this one that I had with The Scent of Secrets: too much scene setting and unnecessary detail. This one, however, was also a lot slower. I was able to finish Scent of Secrets with some interest in the outcome, but I wasn’t able to make it past the quarter mark in this one. I don’t think I’ll be reading any more books in this series.
