Jenny Kidd – Good to the last drop


“Jenny Kidd” by Laury A. Egan is the type of book that once you pick it up, you don’t want to put it down. Jenny spends her autumn in Venice, and by doing so, she loses an illusion and gains a reality. This young, naive artist has the world at her feet, or so she thinks.

While trying to create a portfolio of paintings to move her career in the right direction, she gets caught up with murder, drama, men, and (of course) women. There are always women, and Jenny Kidd has enough of them. All with their very own set of complexities.

This intriguing story is filled with exquisite details about food, art, and history. “Jenny Kidd” is packed with mystery and sexual tension with the perfect balance of restraint. This character-idriven story has plenty of characters to love and to loathe.

The writer takes you on a trip of sorts that leaves you feeling like you have seen the paintings, eaten the food, and sipped the drinks. So, once you open this book from the first page, you won’t be satisfied until you get to the last drop.
