This book was about what I've come to expect from the English Garden series (by far not one of her best). Her characters are recycled from previous works, and the plots are the same. However, her writing was engaging, and though familiar (If you've read the Rocky Mountain series, you'll remember the twin boys who make a repeat appearance here with different names), the characters were poignant. The ending was the most disappointing, since I always enjoy Lori Wick's signature way of ending a series by fast forwarding a few years and tying up all the loose ends for all her characters. She did try to do that, but I felt a bit more time and words, for that matter, could have been spent on the epilogue. I felt a bit let down. It sort of felt like she just wanted to finish writing it, and get it published. This whole series has felt more like a money-maker project rather than "I have this story in my head and I just can't wait to write it down". That's too bad, because I've seen what Lori Wick is capable of in the past. Try the Kensington Chronicles by Lori Wick if you want great romance and adventure. This series isn't quite up to par.

I thought this book was wonderful! Although I am not a new fan of Inspirational Fiction I am a new fan of Lori Wick. I think this entire series was great! I loved this last book, the suspense in the first part of the book is great and as you read you know that it's only getting better! I loved the way that it ended! I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't yet read it, but believe me it's great! The only thing that I didn't like was that it never gave any information on Thomas and Lizzy Morland at the end, it gives an update on everyone else, but it doesn't tell whether or not they were ever able to have children! That is my only complaint... Actually I am very sad that this was the last book in this series, I think it would have been wonderful to continue it! I LOVE books written in early England and this is one of the best series' ever!
Thanks Lori, I am now a fan of yours for life!

Format: Paperback
This is the first and last Lori Wick book for me. The Characters were shallow, simple puppets moving through a prescribed series of very boring events. I found myself skimming through great portions of the chapters involving characters I can only assume were part of other books in her series, but which I found extraneous and irritating here. There also seemed to be a serious lack of real research for a historical piece, with anachronisms abounding. I found the protagonists simplistic, and their actions overwrought for the situation. The twin's grandmother,(the villain here) was very one-note, with no attempt on the author's part to make her a real person. Instead she appears as almost an afterthought used to explain the ridiculously melodramatic and circuitous actions of the boys mother. Not worth the paper it's printed on, or the time I wasted forcing my way though it.

The Pursuit is quite an exceptional book for the Christian fiction genre. It deals with the issue of a woman, dressing as a man, who is on the run from someone or something. The book takes the normal Wick layout of the two main characters' meeting and falling in love. This book is an extremely easy read, it flows incredibly well so that you do not know you have been reading the book for hours. While it is an easy and quick read, it also does not stray from the normal romance novel plot line. It is a very predictable book. The characters again are normal for a romance novel. One of them always has either a big secret of is incredibly rich, well in this book , you have both. this book lacks no big shock or action in this book, and everything stays with the general plot line. I would recommend this book if and only if you like the romance plot line.

I am a huge Lori Wick fan and have read all but a couple of her books, and I have to say I was so disappointed with "The Pursuit". It was rather dry and boring through most of the book. As I read I kept thinking that someone else must've wrote it and just put Lori's name on the cover because it was so out of character for her. Her books have always been page turners to me, but I had to muddle through this one. My biggest disappointment was the lack of romance. That's why I read her books is because of romance! I can't help it...I'm a hopeless romantic. But...all was not lost in this book. There were a couple of pretty decent parts. I can't reveal my favorite parts because it will give away too much.

The Pursuit had much more action than the rest of the English Garden Series but still kept the charm that all the books had.
Widowed Niki Bettencourt is trying to keep her sons away from her manipulative mother-in-law. On the way she meets Edward Steele, who helps her out of jam, and then they part company.
Later, in the town of Collingbourne, they run across each other again when Niki is staying with an old family friend. Edward starts calling on Niki for curiosity's sake until the curiosity turns into love.
Lori Wick ties up all the ends nicely and brings this remarkable series to a close in the wonderful book, the Pursuit
