There is a BIG SPOILER here so do not continue to read if you do not want your first reading of this book to be ruined!!!
First what I love: The characters. Both Abigail and the elder Mr. Calverleigh are not the norm and I love them for that. I also, as another reader appreciated, loved that they fell love early and throughout the book were fond of eachother.
I loved their meeting after being apart.
I did like also how the author put the part of him getting the girl in London to trick his young nephew AFTER she had already arrived in Bath to give you a bit of a surprise when you did catch on...
BUT I did feel that it dragged on in parts that it didn't need to. The book could have been much shorter and just as good I feel. It would have made for a faster read but still satisfying. It took a while to get started getting all the facts and setting in and at other parts just seemed a bit boring.
