I had this book for a while and started reading it one night, but just couldn't get into it. So it sat on my bookshelf for a couple of months before I picked it back up and started reading it again. Then I ended up loving it and it was really enjoyable!
Read this with a reading buddy in my online book club, The Reading Cove. Ambitious effort at a sweeping family dynasty/murder mystery, but it fell short. Repetitious to a fault. It didn't work for me and I lost interest in the Deravenels too soon.
