Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fast-paced adventure into the world of ancient manuscripts. I enjoyed it immensely.”
—John Grisham

“The one book every bibliophile needs to read. . . . mysterious, hilarious, and heartwarming . . . A fun, literary adventure in the spirit of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade or The Da Vinci CodeThe Lost Book of the Grail is a wildly entertaining story bibliophiles everywhere will love.”
—Bustle

“[The Lost Book of the Grail] blends romance, history, booknerdom, and questions about faith and religion into a literary mystery that’s not only incredibly fun but super smart. . . . If your idea of a good time is sifting through the shelves of an old library, this book will speak to your heart.”
Book Riot’s Best Books of 2017

“Book lovers will relish author Lovett’s attention to loving detail. . . . The Lost Book of the Grail is . . . ever so readable.”
—St. Louis Post Dispatch

“There’s a Dan Brown/The Da Vinci Code vibe to this history mystery.”
Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“[The Lost Book of the Grail] offers mystery, a tad of fantasy, a smattering of religious history and romance. . . . Lovett tells a good story, his dialogue is witty and his characters are engaging. . . . So make yourself a cup of proper English tea, open The Lost Book of the Grail and escape your busy life for an afternoon.”
—The News & Observer (Raleigh & Charlotte)

“Delightful . . . English history comes alive. . . . Lovett does a wonderful job of imparting a lot of information about history, religion, books and life in a story that’s both highly entertaining and thought-provoking.”
The News & Record (Greensboro)

“[Lovett’s] best work yet . . . This bibliomystery immediately enchants those with a weakness for old books and church bells. . . . The Lost Book of the Grail is truly a page-turner for bibliophiles.”
—Fine Books & Collections Magazine

“A lovely story, almost fairytale-like in its presentation. . . . If author Lovett’s other novels are as entertaining as this one, they are to be recommended, sight unseen. As it stands, The Lost Book of the Grail may send readers on their own searches for more Charlie Lovett novels.”
—New York Journal of Books

“The reader is entertained along several parallel lines. One learns a good deal of actual English history, especially religious history, and a good deal of mythology and Arthurian legend. One watches a mystery being solved, always fun, and enjoys the pleasing love story of two nice young people who should be together and, finally, are.”
Don Noble, The Tuscaloosa News

“Diffident Arthur Prescott [is an] endearing hero. . . . [A] thoroughly enjoyable novel . . . The light tone . . . blends well with the clever academic sleuthing.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“In his latest literary mystery, Lovett supplements his trademark meld of books, romance, and adventure with an element of (fairly English) humor and some nods in the direction of P.G. Wodehouse. . . . There's lots of research too . . . but it's underpinned by a pleasing treasure hunt mixed with the romantic involvement of two genially mismatched figures. A solidly built, innocently bookish diversion with a distinct Masterpiece Theater flavor.”
—Kirkus

“Former antiquarian bookseller Lovett here does what he did so well in his debut . . . he uses a contemporary setting to vivify and contextualize ancient writings.”
—Library Journal

“Charlie Lovett’s diverting The Lost Book of the Grail is a mystery, a history, a pleasure—and a treasure. Find yourself within its pages, and you find yourself remembering the virtues of books and book-making.”
Gregory Maguire, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked and After Alice

“Charlie Lovett knows his English history and nowhere it is more evident than in his latest charming, compelling novel. A literary mystery with fantastic historical detail and a modern love story—what more can you ask for in one book?”
—Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue
 
The Lost Book of the Grail is for every book addict. Full of suspense, delightful twists and turns, this is a tale about friendship, love, and the purpose of life.”
—Nina George, New York Times bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop

“A vivid, engaging tale that takes the reader along on a delightful search through the ancient libraries of a crumbling cathedral in search of a precious book hidden away for hundreds of years. Settle back and enjoy: this is both a love story and a detective story filled with wonderful historic detail.”
Kate Alcott, New York Times bestselling author of The Dressmaker

“The Lost Book of the Grail is a book lover’s book. Ambitious in scope, the cheerful bounce of Lovett’s prose skillfully guides the reader through history’s twists.”
Erika Swyler, author of The Book of Speculation
