Absolutely amazing. Book three in a decent books I've read run! This one had depth and dimension to the characters, who were likeable and intelligent, even though they may commit silly acts. But at least you know WHY they were doing what they were doing when they were doing it. Wish the author had spent a bit more time on the final chapter, well, actually the last page. Seemed kinda 'I'm all done, now' to me.
Almost didn't read this book because of a previous review but I'm glad I did! It's a very good book with lots of twists and turns, almost like a murder mystery!!
After finishing this novel, I immediately sought out the next two books in the Pennyroyal Green series (the 4th is due out this summer). I found the story engaging (although the circumstances of the characters were a little extreme). The author infuses this story with intelligence, extraordinary humor, and writing skills. And it it smokin' hot! Terrific chemistry. Note: very nice for a change to read an author who understands and uses the English language. I am tired of poor grammar and syntax, so Hooray for Julie Anne Long.
This was a wonderful read. Long's stellar prose is much in evidence and there is an adventure tale which I miss in many romances today.
It was slow getting started, but the rapport between the H/H built slowly and gracefully. There is a lot of charm and wit to the story. While Colin & Madeline searched for the person or persons who wanted him rescued from the gallows and her murdered, his brother uses his practical nature to reach the same conclusions. It was witty and entertaining. The outcome totally unexpected. I have ordered the next two in the series and look forward to reading them.
