4 Stars - for a fun Historical Regency Romance
This is a great fun read to do the ol' "TAKE ME AWAY" magic:). I think this is one of Julie Klassen's better books. My favorite of hers has been The Silent Governess - but aside from that one I have felt her books are mediocre. With this book she has once again hit the spot and written an engaging story.
There is a dark secret at Pembrooke Park, and I am surprisingly really enjoying the mystery here. The characters keeping me guessing, thickening the plot and pulling me through the story.
I must make a little complaint. THE COVER. Now no offence to the girl on the front, but I do NOT like the cover. The castle the huge blue girl is covering looks great - why not bring it up close and put her way to the back - with maybe the cloaked figure of a man on a horse off to the side in a darker corner? THE COVER makes a huge difference if I want to own it or avoid it! I wish publishers would do a better job(why can't they ask me first?). :)
