    This historical fiction set in England during the French Revolution was not what I expected at all I wanted a ghost story but instead I received an almost trashy sort of forbidden love triangle The protagonist whined and ranted about her sin with the forbidden brother every time they met and that really grated on my nerves Thankfully, that mostly stopped by the middle of the book or I would have just stopped the book The rest of it, although not bad, wasof a mystery adventure story wit This historical fiction set in England during the French Revolution was not what I expected at all I wanted a ghost story but instead I received an almost trashy sort of forbidden love triangle The protagonist whined and ranted about her sin with the forbidden brother every time they met and that really grated on my nerves Thankfully, that mostly stopped by the middle of the book or I would have just stopped the book The rest of it, although not bad, wasof a mystery adventure story with the protagonist and her lover trying to find the evil French spies trying to incite riots in England, not a ghost story I would skip the book if you see it and are intrigued It really wasn t worth the time although I will say some bits of it did interest me

    I loved the previous book, Knave of Hearts AKA Zipporah s Daughter , and I could see this one probably wasn t going to be as much of a page turner I was correct Claudine wasn t the strongest character for me I got a little tired of her hand wringing and fretting The funny thing was that we keep being told by other characters that she is such a passionate person, bla bla, but to me she always felt like a very passive person.Also, the story keeps pushing that she and one of the dudes are mean I loved the previous book, Knave of Hearts AKA Zipporah s Daughter , and I could see this one probably wasn t going to be as much of a page turner I was correct Claudine wasn t the strongest character for me I got a little tired of her hand wringing and fretting The funny thing was that we keep being told by other characters that she is such a passionate person, bla bla, but to me she always felt like a very passive person.Also, the story keeps pushing that she and one of the dudes are meant to be together and I just didn t feel it I had to just take the narrator s word for it I can see they are infatuated with each other but that s about it Honestly, if you re going to try to make their drama a central part of the story, then I need to be convinced or it s just not as enthralling by a long shot The story did pick up a little near the end when the mystery gets going It takes a while to get there I wasn t nearly as moved by the denouement as I was supposed to be Some minor characters were also introduced and one of them gets on my nerves That person s behavior is excused in the end which also annoyed me.I feel a little odd giving this a 4 star rating but I think 3 stars would be too low Overall, I do care about the storyline and knowing what happens, it just pales compared to the others I have to wonder if I would be as invested if I hadn t already read the previous 10 books and gotten to know this family

    This was my favourite book when I was 13 I recently found it again and reread it having not read it in full for a good decade I remember it being very racy and naughty but now I found it a littlesedate having said that it has lost none of its charm I just found that I didn t like the heroine as much as I did back then, and the writing does lack vitality and oomph in places The period it covers England during the french revolution is interesting but it was definitely nostalgia for my This was my favourite book when I was 13 I recently found it again and reread it having not read it in full for a good decade I remember it being very racy and naughty but now I found it a littlesedate having said that it has lost none of its charm I just found that I didn t like the heroine as much as I did back then, and the writing does lack vitality and oomph in places The period it covers England during the french revolution is interesting but it was definitely nostalgia for my romantic, idealistic 13 year old self that kept me reading to the end this time

    My 2nd favorite of this series Still gives me the goose bumps when I think of certain scenes the haunting English manors that drew me in long before I ever heard of Jane Austen or fell in love with her work.This author does such an excellent job of setting the scene and I adore authors that give so much details I honestly believe it s why I still love that aspect of reading even to this day.

    Overall I guess I liked the story, kind of like a spy novel, but you don t know that at first It wasof a love triangle between the heroine and her 2 suitors who happened to be twins but of totally different natures It did hold my interest although it lagged in a few places, but I enjoyed the read.


  8. says:

    It s just ok Wordy and IMHO an almost ridiculous and rather unbelievable home situation at 17 for this protagonist Contrived, very, for that period in history to have such a combined family with twin brothers both available as prospective mates But that wasn t why the 2 star and not a 3 It just got way too bodice ripper over plot for me.

    The most interesting idea of this book is the use of suspense which is the key factor in making the reader turn up the next page.it was really heart catching even though my actor didnt make it through the very end of the novel Why did Jonathan have to die and worst of all a cheap death.
