Ana Petrescu (aka Miss Vulpe) is a troubled teenager determined to solve the mystery of her parents’ double suicide. Escaping the scrutiny of her legal guardian and the unwanted interference of several therapists, she starts looking up people from her mother’s past. Her sleuthing requires her to lie about her identity, her age, and her lack of experience with men. While impersonating Miss Vulpe is more fun than going to school, there’s bound to be trouble and heartache when her web of lies unravels.
The Adventures of Miss Vulpe – A Review
Maria Elena Sandovici’s newest book is fast-paced and takes you along the story of Ana, a 15-year-old girl who is searching for answers about her mother’s and father’s deaths. Secrets abound in this story that comes to be revealed to her in one fell swoop. What Ana discovers along the way is that her father is not who she thought it was and her mother was not who she appeared to be.
Adding depth to the story is who becomes her first lover and how he connects to her mother and real father.
Through flashbacks, you get more involved in the story of what brought Ana to the point she is. The story transitions between locations in Texas, Louisiana, Spain, and Bucharest.
While there are some formatting problems, no page numbers and minor writing errors, The Adventures of Miss Vulpe is still a good Sunday read to transport you into a story of Ana discovering herself and her family’s secrets.
Maria Elena Sandovici lives in Houston with her dog. She travels to Bucharest often and also to Spain, but her favorite trip remains 45 South to Galveston. She has an art studio at Hardy and Nance in the Warehouse District, open the third Saturday of every month, blogs daily at havewatercolorswilltravel.com, and writes poetry in the voice of her dog. She is also the author of three previous novels about women who are struggling with finding their place in the world.
