K. Larsen's Jezebel ⋉Review⋊

By K. Larsen

30 years of affection. 10 years of soul shattering love. 8 years of happy employment. 2 months of turmoil. 1 week of truth. A lifetime of betrayal. Would you have seen it coming? Annabelle Fortin landed herself in a bit of trouble. Mandated to community service at an assisted living facility for early onset dementia she meets Jezebel, one of the residents. This is the story that unfolds over the course of Annabelle's court ordered six month sentence. Nothing is what it seems.

Jezebel, for me, was not only this years most mind bending read it was also my most amazing read so far. It will be very hard to top it. This book was such a mind altering experience. I felt I knew what was coming but I was in no way prepared for the truth of it, the reality of it. K. Larsen had me clutching my kindle, eyes wide as I stare at the last words on the page. She has written a tour de force!! One I will never forget.

Jezebel is a story within a story. Annabel, a spoilt rich teen forced to do probational work at a retirement home, meets a feisty exciting and mysterious woman named Jezebel there with a love story that was so enthralling to tell Annabel kept coming back for more. Jezebel tells the story of Celeste and her love Gabriel in Paris from 1984.

During the telling of the story these two become ever closer, and Jezebel makes Annabel look at her life rather than sleep walk through it. She makes her want to live it. K. Larsen has written such an expressive and vivid novel in her details as well as her characters. Becoming emotionally attached to them is a must. Jezebel is unlike all of her other novels, it stands out in its brilliance. I would give it many more stars if I could. This book will twist you up, spit you out and you will love K. Larsen for it. I very highly recommend it!!
