The Witch Of Painted Sorrows Review

Overview: Sandrine Salome flees New York for her grandmother’s Paris mansion to escape her dangerous husband, but what she finds there is even more menacing. The house, famous for its lavish art collection and elegant salons, is mysteriously closed up. Although her grandmother insists it’s dangerous for Sandrine to visit, she defies her and meets Julien Duplessi, a mesmerizing young architect. Together they explore the hidden night world of Paris, the forbidden occult underground and Sandrine’s deepest desires.

Among the bohemians and the demi-monde, Sandrine discovers her erotic nature as a lover and painter. Then darker influences threaten—her cold and cruel husband is tracking her down and something sinister is taking hold, changing Sandrine, altering her. She’s become possessed by La Lune: A witch, a legend, and a sixteenth-century courtesan, who opens up her life to a darkness that may become a gift or a curse.

This is Sandrine’s “wild night of the soul,” her odyssey in the magnificent city of Paris, of art, love, and witchery.

My Thoughts: 
I was given this book to review by NetGalleyWhen I read the overview I was definitely intrigued and excited to get started reading! This book was so amazing and suspenseful I couldn't
put it down! Set in Paris in the 1800's when the occult was starting to garner a huge following. Sandrine who is shy and demure flees New York after a devastating loss and some unfortunate news about her husband and his gambling problems. She finds sanctuary at her grandmothers in Paris but she finds that her grandmother has moved out of the home Sandrine remembered from the summer she spent there when she was 15.  This makes her increasingly curious about what her grandmother is really up to. And from the moment Sandrine steps into that house,Mansion De La Lune, something happens to her. She becomes more bold with the opposite sex, and she has a desire to paint like she never has before. I loved this book!! It was beautiful and spellbinding. I recommend this for adult readers. It is definitely not a young adult book lol I really really need to buy this book on all platforms! It was definitely that good!
