The Confectioner’s Guild (The Confectioner Chronicles Book 1)
By: Claire Luana
5 out of 5 stars
The story The Confectioner’s Guild (The Confectioner Chronicles Book 1) by Claire Luana is a YA/fantasy suspense book. It is a story that draws you in from the very beginning and I found myself not wanting to put it down until I had read the last page. It has mystery, suspense, and at times had me turning pages to find out what happens next. You read about some sweet confections being made that made me hungry for the sugary treats. I loved reading about Wren. She is a young girl whose past has a sad note to it. She is someone who knows that she is not the one who murdered the head of the Confectioner’s Guild however now has to fight uphill to prove her innocence. She must navigate her way through the mountain of evidence that seems to be overwhelming at times. She has an ally that vouches for her and others who believe that she is innocent as well. I enjoyed reading about the interactions with the friends that Wren makes. There are also those whose motives are suspicious and you wonder whose side they are on. This story has some twists that I didn’t see coming and revelations that had me with my mouth open. A bit of romance is added to the mix in this book as well. Will Wren and her friends find the evidence that proves her to be not guilty of murder? Read this story to find out. This is a wonderfully written story that I would recommend reading. It is the first book in a series and I look forward to reading the next one.
