A review by picoledenaranja
Velvet Was the Night, by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

dark mysterious slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


I didn't like this as much as I wanted to, it was really slow and the main character, the secretary, was so childish it made her very annoying. About 40% in it did start to engage me more and I liked the twist, it was interesting. Overall, a slow read but I liked it
