Great book. I absolutely LOVED Vanessa. I don't think that I have ever loved another heroine more than her. I'm really looking foward to reading the rest of the series. ( )

This was my first book by Mary Balogh and after reading so many favorable reviews I expected a lot... Too much maybe, because I was very disappointed.

The plot itself wasn't very interesting, the hero and heroine weren't very interesting - she was even bordering on not likeable for me - and it took longer than usual to read it.

The only person I did find interesting was the hero's ex-best friend Con. The book started with him and it took a long time before I realized he had been sidelined for good. Obviously his role will be drawn out over the series. ETA Looking at the other books in this series, I noticed he will be the hero of the fifth book. I might hang in there a bit longer...

Fun.

Historical fiction that would appeal the fans of Phillippa Gregory. Very well done and most entertaining. ( )

First words
Warren Hall in Hampshire, principal country seat for generations past of the Earls of Merton, was surrounded by a large, well-landscaped park, in one secluded corner of which there was a small chapel, used nowadays almost exclusively for family weddings, christenings, and funerals since there was a sizable church in the village nearby for regular worship.
