The Jewels of ParadiseThe Jewels of Paradise by Donna Leon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A non-Brunetti Leon novel still holds its charm: Venice, food, an interesting character, strong life of the mind and a strong reverence for history, literature, and other cultural gems, but Jewels of Paradise could've been more developed--another 100 pages might've fleshed out the new character, the intriguing supporting characters, and the plot a bit more satisfactorily.
