The Seventh Unicorn

Romance | Mystery Arcane

Alex Pellier is a curator for the Cluny Museum in Paris, and she's very devoted and passionate about her job. Alex dreams of finding a medieval tapestry, the seventh in a series, and completing the museum's The Lady and the Unicorn series. With the help of Jake, an old and dear friend, she embarks on her journey of discovery.

Jake and Alex knew each other years ago when they were both students in Paris. Unhappy with his life in Montana, Jake quit his teaching position, cashed in his retirement and came to Paris to resume his passion for painting. Alex, who lost her husband in a tragic accident, is raising her young daughter with the help of her mother. Are the threads of their rekindled relationship strong enough to survive the mistakes of the past?

This debut novel by Kelly Jones is a haunting and breathtaking story. It's rich in history and detail. Colorful characters weave in and out, creating many patterns to the mystery. Will the final design reveal a seventh tapestry?

SUMMARY

In her quest to discover a medieval treasure, curator Alex Pellier visits a convent in Lyon, but its storehouse of items dating back to the thirteenth century turns up little. Then, Alex discovers a centuries-old poem and sketches. These suggest to her that there may be a seventh, yet undiscovered tapestry in the world-renowned Lady and the Unicorn series.

Now a journey of mystery begins that could lead Alex to a career-making find--and to the man she thought she had lost forever.
