I really enjoyed the story. The characters were interesting and the story was hard to put down. I kept wondering when the lies would catch up.

HASH(0xb544436c) out of 5 stars Be Aware this isn't a complete novel April 13 2008
By thewordlover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love historical novels and was interested in this fresh setting and situation. But early on I had reservations. For one thing I couldn't envision how it would be possible for Charlotte, A high class English Lady to be able to have a dalliance with a man who visits her parents home. With servants and her parents about, how on earth did she find an opportunity for physical intimacy in the drawing room? The characters are well drawn and the research is wonderful with all the information about Pullman. But as one other reviewer alluded, the ending was a shock-- not because of a dramatic shift but because this isn't a complete novel but more like an ongoing soap opera where there is no ending. As long as you don't mind reading an episode or else waiting for the entire series to be published so you can find out what happens, this is a great story. On the cover it says Postcards from PUllman 1. But nothing hints that it isn't a stand alone story.

HASH(0xb54443c0) out of 5 stars not a complete novel May 1 2013
By rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not a complete novel and I wish I had known before I read the book. I wanted to know what would happen so I bought the second part and still the storry was unresolved. I decided not to buy the 3rd book because I feel this is a gimmick to make people buy 1 book for the price of three.

HASH(0xb544469c) out of 5 stars Just okay Aug. 15 2007
By C. Widman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For 75% of In the Company of Secrets, I really liked the story, the characters, and the historical charm of the era and Pullman, Illinois. Olivia is a strong heroine, with likeable and relatable qualities. She is a Christian but is struggling with what she truly believes. She always has quite a problem with honesty. In the beginning, Olivia and Lady Charlotte/Mrs. Hornsby concoct a story of lies to cover their backgrounds and the true identity of Mrs. Hornsby. They travelled together from Lanshire Hall in London. Olivia is hoping to get a position as assistant chef in a local hotel. "Mrs. Hornsby" is in search of a jilted lover.

My big complaint is the ending. Nothing is resolved, at all. It just ends. I should have had an inkling that this would be the case, since all throughout the book any impediment or plot twist was wrapped up too easily and abruptly.

I'm curious to read the second in the series, at least to find out how things were wrapped up but I don't think I'll be running out to buy it. Overall a bland and predictable story, and a disappointment.

HASH(0xb5444810) out of 5 stars Ends without resolution!! May 1 2013
By Denice Rozmus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The overall story was good but the book ended quite abruptly. There was no resolution of the circumstances and the characters were just left in the middle of a delimma. It forced you to the purchase the second book in the series to find out how things were going to be resolved. However, the second book in the series did the same thing...I won't be purchasing the third.

HASH(0xb5444480) out of 5 stars Awful waste of time Sept. 15 2013
By ClassicBookLady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love historical novels, but never before have I spent hour upon hour reading a book only to find that there was no ending and after just reading the reviews discovered it was just a way of selling 1 book three or more times. I've read books done in volumes before but each had it's own appropriate ending. This one doesn't and instead leaves you hanging onto thin air. Don't waste your time on this one.
