This book, Cardsharp-A Vincent Ward Adventure, consistently kept me on the edge of my seat throughout its various chapters. It was engaging from the very beginning, because just like the title says, it was an adventure. It took a lot of effort for me to take a break from this exciting story. Whenever I took breaks from reading, I could not stop thinking about what would happen next and I was eager to get back to the book. I wondered if Vincent would fail or if he would succeed. Would he get the painting back? Countless questions filled my head. Similar to a toddler wanting a delicious candy cane, I picked up the story once more as I was hungry to finish the book and discover the sweet ending. The “second job” that a main character, Jennifer, knocked me off my feet and the end certainly filled me with surprise. The story was sweet, but with different flavors that kept me on my toes throughout. Its plot was thought-provoking, organized, and smooth flowing. The main characters all had unique personalities, which make it easier to find a character that all readers can relate to. In conclusion, what made me realize that this was a wonderful book was the fact that I literally dreaded the last chapter, since I did not want the book to end. If the rest of the novels in the series are as entertaining, exciting, and stimulating to read as this one, the series will undoubtedly be a true success.
