Charming, romantic story that proves once again Theresa Romain owns a very unique historical voice and knows how to translate it to paper. That being said I was a bit dissatisfied with the story.
First off, I have to say the blurb was a bit misleading. There is a mystery to solve but the suspicions never came from the main characters. My other peeve was that I found the first few chapters slow-paced and it took me a while to get into the story; it wasn’t until mid-book that I found myself completely engage in it. Also, the mystery subplot kept slowing the pace and that prevented me from enjoying the story to the fullest.
So, while it was charming and romantic and the author never ceased to amaze me with her usual writing style it pains me to say this was not one of my favorite stories by her.
