Jenny Kidd by Laury A. Egan

Jenny Kidd by Laury A. Egan: American artist Jenny Kidd travels to Venice to pursue painting and escape her tyrannical parents. Shortly after arriving she meets eccentric Britishwoman Randi, who invites her to a masked party at the home of the Barbons. There she meets the alluring Caterina and her brother Sebastiano. Jenny spends much of her time in various kinds of confusion, unsure who she loves and who she can trust. The descriptions of paintings and the Venetian scenery are lovely, and while the amount of sex is somewhat surprising to a prude like myself, it doesn’t detract from the story. I finished this far more quickly than I was expecting, having no problem convincing myself to read “just one more chapter” before turning out the light. Perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea, but I enjoyed myself.

P.S. – Happy New Year! :D
