REVIEW: The Casanova Code by Donna MacMeans

An emotionally satisfying story that lingers in your mind when you shut the book–readers looking for a well written story with an innovative plot should open The Casanova Code and fall into it. Sometimes the things Edwina did would irritate me. I snickered, cheered, and at times wanted to toss the book across the room. Edwina and her friends think Casanova is up to his old reputation of ruining gently raised women and are determined to thwart his plan.

I love that she wanted to ride her bicycle and be her own woman while following her heart. I received this novel from Goodreads. Knowing she is an expert on finding patterns he asks for her help with deciphering the code. I enjoyed it very much!
