“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.”

“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
