Nicola Highbridge and her two foster sisters have a system, the three each have a distinct coin and when one is in trouble they send their coin to summon help. Nicola travels to London to help her sister who is being threatened at the museum she works for by thieves.
Upon arriving Nicola soon crosses paths with Clay Barber who is a government agent investigating in secret. The two are immediately at odds but highly attracted to one another. With Nicola and Clay both investigating they cross paths quite often and stumble into more than they thought they would.
Sisterhood of the Coin is a historical mix of a bit of romance thrown into a mystery. I have to say I started off this undiscovered novel a bit hesitant and unsure of what I was going to find since it seemed to have little interest in it on Goodreads. But when I began to read I was immediately impressed with the writing. I was drawn into a London of the past where I could just imagine the sights, sounds and smells of the city.
As I got more into the story though I couldn’t quite put my finger on it but I would occasionally just lose interest. I think when done I just felt the flow and focus was a bit off here and there for my taste. I did enjoy the characters, could just picture Eel in my mind and loved him all throughout and Nicola was such a strong independent woman for the most part which I enjoyed. Also enjoyed the plot to an certain degree but it would seem to wander and maybe try to include just too much that was outside the main focus of the story.
Overall, I still found this story to be an interesting read in the so I went with three stars as somewhat an average feeling overall as there were some really good parts and some that I didn’t care for.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
