A good read
on January 9, 2014
This was a good light read; plenty of good plot and still a nice romance. The back story was so interesting, it could easily have been its own novel (Author: great opportunity for a prequel!)
Generally well-written, except for the author's habit of having the heroine parrot back the last few words of dialogue, sort of like this: "You're very beautiful," he said. "Beautiful?", she asked. "Let's take a walk on the terrace," he suggested. "On the terrace?", she replied. It made an otherwise smart heroine seem like an insipid "dumb blonde" and by the end of the book it was really bugging me.
But still a good book that I would recommend.
