4 stars!This was a haunting, addictive and atmospheric story. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and setting of this novel told in dual timelines – Hollywood, 1978 and Tuscany, Present Day. I was equally intrigued with each storyline and was quickly flipping pages to see how the two timelines would intersect. The majority of this book unfolds within an old mansion, the Castillo Barbarossa, nestled and secluded in the Italian countryside. This eerie Italian villa becomes a character of its own [...]

Heartbreaking, romantic and utterly alluring!The Silent Fountain is an incredibly absorbing and emotive novel about love, life, loss, deception, infidelity, friendship, family, jealousy, obsession, and tragedy.There are two main memorable characters in this novel. Vivian, a starlet from the 1970s who moved to Italy with the love of her life until one day everything she held dear was taken, shattered and destroyed. And Lucy, a young woman who fell in love with the wrong man and is now hiding fro [...]

4.5/5I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting when I started reading The Silent Fountain but whatever I had been anticipating could in no way live up to my actual experience reading this little gem of a book. It had a little bit of everything and then some, there was suspense, tension, intrigue, scandal, romance all steeped in a dark and painful history. It was also extremely evocative and took me on quite an emotional journey that I won’t soon forget.This is told using dual narratives, you [...]

I received this via Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own. 😊---I seem to be in the Minority here for the most part, aah well.There were elements that reminded me of a couple of my favorite authors but overall was underwhelming to me. I give the author kudos for how creepy Isabella was though.It felt a bit drawn out as well.*shrugs* On to the next one.

Sitting here open mouthed in wonderment, but equally speechless with just how much I completely adored this book. I read the first 3 chapters when I had a short bit of time, and then spent the next few hours thinking about how the book would progress, which showed me just how much it was under my skin instantly. I had many questions just from the beginning and over the course of the book I did get all the answers. My next stint of reading too me to about 75%, where I incredibly reluctantly put t [...]

Favorite Quotes:I’ve never told my family anything about my life, and the more personal it is, the more precious and the less willing I am to share it. Sometimes she pictures the materials of this house, the solid wood and hard marble, the cool stone, absorbing every thought and feeling her body has expelled. If she squeezes the drapes, tears will seep out, like the wringing of a cloth; if she scratches the stairways, secrets will plume and curl in a thin ribbon: grey smoke.He looked like a pr [...]

BRILLIANT! Way more than five stars!Visit the locations in the novel here: The Silent FountainStunning in every way – the plot, characters, dual time line, hidden secrets, that stunning mansion in the Tuscan hills…the women whose destinies seem to be linked via that place….

3.5 starsThere is nothing like fall to make you want to read a mystery or a Gothic novel…well at least for me! Fall is the perfect time to curl up with a creep or suspenseful book and spend the day lost in the mystery. That’s exactly what I did with The Silent Fountain!I read this book as part of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon, it was hard to break with my Pink Carnation book but somehow I found the ability to read something else, and I was not sad in the least. This book was a great Gothic nov [...]

The publisher's description of The Silent Fountain drew me in with it being primarily set in Italy, the promise of 'dark secrets' and a Gothic feel, and dual time settings and perspectives, which are are all things that I enjoy. Once I started the book, I was immediately absorbed--at one moment I was feeling all of the pleasures of the sunny Italian countryside, the next moment the menacing feel and foreboding chills of a crumbling estate with noises and odd occurrences would come sneaking in, a [...]

jerasjamboree/2017/0It’s so hard to write down my thoughts because I loved The Silent Fountain. Where to startThe format is brilliant. Lucy’s first person narration beginning in London 2016 and arriving in Italy had my head buzzing with questions. My questions didn’t stop there. This is a story that keeps you continually thinking, questioning and trying to work out the anomalies. Vivien’s third person narrative takes us back to 1972 to when she is 16. I was already hooked because of Lucy [...]

Miei cari lettori, ho paura di non avere molte parole da dedicare a questo romanzo. Me le ha tolte. Ho vissuto in una favola sinistra, surreale, un solo piedino a terra a comunicare con la realtà.Inventerei un genere a parte per questo libro. Non è una di quelle trame tessute per sgomentarti con un finale inaspettato; qui ogni cosa è inaspettata, persino i dettagli: sei completamente dentro alla storia eppure vivi sempre una storia diversa. Questo è stato per me "La casa deli scandali" di Vi [...]

The Silent Fountain is a gothic and historical romance with a little bit of suspense mixed too. This house has some sinister things going on it. What more could I ask for?Fox takes us back and forth between Vivien Lockhardt in the 70’s and Lucy Whittaker in the present, and it done so with such grace that it flows right into each other. Never confusing, just completely enthralling and with a pace that kept me turning the pages to see what was going to happen. Vivien is one those characters who [...]

Victoria Fox is perhaps best known for writing sizzling bonkbusters with a hint of mystery that always provide such an escapist read. But now she is back with something slightly different and almost sinister in tone which is evident from the cover of The Silent Fountain as it has such dark, foreboding colours compared to the usual brash, bright colours normally a book by this author would have. It's nice to see authors veering out of their comfort zone and taking things in a new direction. I was [...]

Thank you again Harlequin for providing me with another excellent book in exchange for an honest review.Vivien Lockhart and Lucy Whittaker both have secrets to hide, parts of them so big that they make headlines. Their stories are similar in a way but happen in different decades. They're brought together at the once beautiful Castillo Barbarossa where they're both trying to escape their memories. They only begin to find peace when they share their tragedies together. In 1978 Vivien is the film s [...]

Una storia triste, malinconica, ingiusta. Una storia intrigante, ingannevole, irritante!I segreti e i misteri appaiono fin dalle primissime pagine, impregnano ogni parte del libro e si fanno sempre più intricati.La trama del libro è davvero coinvolgente tuttavia vanta i peggiori personaggi di sempre!Sinceramente, l'autrice si è proprio impegnata a creare personaggi così odiosi!

2.5 Stars. Interesting enough but a little long and drawn out. The end was way melodramatic without foundation and felt rushed. Did really enjoy the Italian villa setting and the dual timeline. Definitely engaging enough to keep my attention and keep turning the pages, but fell short of being amazing. Thank you Harlequin MIRA for the review copy!

"This haunting tale of love and tragedy will keep readers up all night as they work to unravel a mystery that will leave readers guessing until the very end. The complexity of the novel stems from the way Fox layers the character development and plants seeds of doubt about each character's nature and intentions. Truly one-of-a-kind, this is a book that can be read over and over, with something new being revealed each time" (5 stars GOLD @ RT Book Reviews).

La casa degli scandali mi ricorda molto uno di quei film dai toni di thriller psicologici, di quelli che ti lasciano con il fiato sospeso, di quelli che ti fanno immedesimare nella protagonista del romanzo e tifare ogni sua scelta. Di questo romanzo mi è piaciuto completamente tutto. La copertina, il font, i colori utilizzati, addirittura i simboli vicino l'elenco delle parti. Completamente tutto. Non esistono le coincidenze e quando un libro così arriva nella vita, vuol dire che deve essere l [...]
