Good romance. Story of three women pooling their limited resources to investigate the inheritance of one of them. Set in Regency-era London. Why would anyone show a fervent interest in purchasing the rundown property Liv has just inherited? Strange servants, mysterious intruders at night and finally a child kidnapped, move this love story along. Enjoyed it very much.
Sad to say, this was a snoozer...
This was my first Jane Feather book and I was reminded of something very important... check reviews before just picking up a book!
I liked that this was the first in a new series, but more importantly, I really liked what I read on the back of the book! The story sounded fun and exciting and ...well, it wasn't. To be honest, there is nothing that even stood out to me as memorable. Not a scene, not a character ...although the thimble made me think of my grandmother because she had a collection. But that's it! And the secondary characters seemed to be everywhere, cluttering up any hint of a storyline. And just where was the "wicked" gentleman? It couldn't have been the hero because he was positively lackluster and boring. And for being a codebreaker for the crown, he wasn't all that intelligent either. This book was just a disappointment. The story was really, really slow and never picked up any speed at all since it was predictable the whole way through.
Its unfortunate because I think Feather's writing has the potential to tell great stories. After reading reviews for some of her other books, I may try her again sometime, but with so many books and so little time, you won't see me running to buy her titles any time soon.
