Review: Ms. Jio has quickly become one of my favorite authors in a short period of time. I can devour her novels in a couple of sittings. The Last Camellia is no exception. I tore through the book. The difference was this time I wanted to know more about the stories than the characters. For me, the characters were secondary ot the mystery of the Camellia. The characters were interchangeable for me.
I found the idea of flower thieves fascinating and it did help move the story along. Both Flora and Addison are interesting characters but not ones that will stay with you long after the story. Addison's story was the one I was most curious about throughout the novel. I had part of the mystery figured out by the middle of the novel and still enjoyed the reveal when the characters figured it out as well. Ms. Jio always handles the split timeline extremely well and she does the same in The Last Camellia.
Final Take: 4/5
