Alex Pellier is passionate about only two things in life; her precocious six-year-old daughter and her work as curator for the Cluny Museum in Paris. She relishes the idea of discovering a medieval treasure. Unfortunately, her trip to a convent near Lyon to examine a storehouse of items dating back to the thirteenth century seems to be turning up little. But then, tucked inside a book, Alex discovers a centuries-old poem. In another book, a series of sketches. To Alex, these items suggest that there must be a seventh, as yet undiscovered tapestry in the world-renowned THE LADY AND THE UNICORN series.
A mystery unfolds, and an exciting new journey begins. It could lead Alex to the greatest find of her career--and to an encounter with the man she thought she had lost forever . . .
A fun combination mystery and romance

I very much enjoyed this book. I had never heard of the unicorn tapestries before and since reading this book, have found myself researching the topic. How interesting if there were more tapestries out there.

This was an interesting novel. A mix of history and mystery, with a touch of romance. A must read for any medievalist. I enjoyed reading it after a recent visit to Paris where I had seen the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries.

This was a really good read!!! The mystery was a lot like the Dan Brown books [The DaVinci Code] but in a more subtle way. I highly recommend this book for any history lover!

I enjoyed this book. It was a quick and interesting read. There were some parts that were great, but it's not what I call a keeper. Keepers entice me to read a book again immediately and keep them for reading a third and fouth time later. This book is good, but it is not a keeper. I read it and enjoyed it and immediately past it on to someone else to read. The characters were like acquaintances, they didn't grab your heart.

What an awesome story! I loved how all the wee details were answered and not left hanging! I liked that it was a romance as well as a mystery/adventure! I really liked the characters and felt their pain and hoped for them! Great weekend/beach read!
