"Blame It On Bovary is an elegantly-written literary thriller that includes the drama and action of The Bourne Identity and the other Jason Bourne novels, and the language and sensibility and historic backdrop of The Age of Innocence.
And yes, there is an assassin, and a gun, and chase scenes. And danger and excitement.
And lots of romance. Author Elaine Wagner is that one in a million writer who has a true literary gift. Her writing style and story structure and characters fully engage you and make you want more." – (Joan Holman)
