Olga's Egg Blog Tour

Friday 9 November 2018

So it's been a while since I've posted, hasn't it?
What better way to jump back into blogging than with the details of an exciting new book?!

When Fabergé specialist Assia Wynfield learns of the discovery of a long-lost Fabergé egg made for the Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna, daughter of the last Tsar of Russia, she appears to be the only person with misgivings. On travelling to St. Petersburg to see the egg, Assia moves among Russia’s new rich but finds herself pulled back into a family past she would rather forget. With news that a friend is missing, Assia starts to dig deeper. But does she really want the answers to the questions she is asking? Set in today’s glamorous world of Russian art with glimpses into the lives of the last Romanovs as their empire crumbled in the wake of the Russian Revolution, Olga’s Egg is an enthralling tale of love, family secrets and the artistic treasures that conceal them.

Release Date: 25th October 2018
Genre: Contemporary
Publisher: Clink Street Publishing

When I got the email about this blog tour I knew I had to take part. I just knew. There's something about the idea of a book centring around a mysterious Fabergé egg that just drew me straight in. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Russian history, but the name Romanov is at least familiar to me and I would like to learn about them in the future, but for now I think I'll stick with dipping my toe into fiction surrounding them.
