In the Bleak Midwinter (Rev. Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne, Bk 1)
Review Date: 1/28/2009
Helpful Score: 6


I don't know how I'm going to be able to wait until I get my hands on a copy of the next book from this author! This was a wonderful mystery. The characters were people you'd like to know, the mystery believable and more complicated with every "clue." I took too long over lunch to find out the solution, and now I'm disappointed that there isn't more! Find yourself a copy; I don't think you'll be disappointed.

This particular work gives the reader a flavor of the dynamics of the naval war in the Mediterranean and a view of life in wartime Egypt during 1941. There's also romance and intrigue. So, if you're looking for a novel that has a richly textured plot, and is also fast-paced, look no further. "LOVE FOR AN ENEMY" is it! What is more: Fullerton was in the Royal Navy during the Second World War, having served on both surface ships and submarines. He knows well what he writes.

Having no experience with David Baldacci's writing, I really had no expectations starting this book. It began slowly and I thought it was going to be the first of a series that I didn't desperately need to obtain. About 1/3 of the way into the story, I was enthralled. Really twisting, detailed and unique storyline and a main character I was really pulling for by the end. Anxiously (desperately) looking for the rest of the Decker series!

What a good book! The characters have great personalities, there's subtle humor, definite intrigue,well-written descriptions and vibrant history. I couldn't put it down and promptly wish-listed the other books in the series.

What a wonderful story! A writer tells the story she is writing, so the point of view switches back and forth in time, seamlessly. The characters are vivid, and you feel their emotions as they do, worry about the political situation... it is so disappointing to know that folks will have a hard time locating a copy of this, because I think any fan of historical fiction would enjoy this very much. Susanna Kearsley has a great way with characterization, and knows just how much descriptive narrative is enough. If you see this book, grab it (or the Canadian version, The Winter Sea)!
