I do believe this was the most dysfunctional group of people I have ever read about. They were constantly hissing, snarling and shrieking at one another.

The alleged hero did a lot of whining and whimpering and was basically a coward.
The heroine was not too bad...a bit wishy washy though. She was described as having golden blonde hair and emerald green eyes,,,then she was said to have sandy blonde hair and glowing sapphire eyes and at bedtime she wore pajamas.

This story takes place in 1847, yet the speech is modern day.
The h(Elizabeth) is forced to marry the bad guy(Edward)The marriage takes place on the same day that they meet for the first time.

Edward tells her on their wedding night that he is holding a ball the following evening to celebrate the marriage. Say what????

When were the invitations sent...don't know.
This manor has 2 menservants. That is it. No maids, housekeeper, cook, etc.
These 2 guys do the marketing,cooking,serving and cleaning plus take care of the stables. Oh yeah, they even had time to decorate for the ball.

All of this work and our hero(he is one of the servants) still has time to walk in the gardens every evening with the heroine.

There were some loose ends left hanging at the end of the story. Where did the sister Caroline run off to?? And what was done about the 2 dead bodies in the forest??

To add to the torture of this book was the enormous amount of typos, wrong word usages and grammatical errors.
I am so glad I got this when it was offered as a freebie. Would have been highly upset if I had paid for it.

When I started reading this it seemed interesting. A man wth three daughters and a dying wife is driven to murdering a man and stealing his jewels in order to provide a dowry for his eldest daughter. The twist is that the man he murdered happens to be the father of the man he is trying to marry his daughter off to. However, I never got past the first half of the book because of the large amount of typos, wrong word usages and grammatical errors. It's such a shame because it made reading this book untolerable. It's too frustrating and pulls you out of the story and gets you focusing on the technical side of the story and what the author really meant to say.

A word of constructive criticism to the author: get a decent editor. You're not doing your story any justice by making it so hard to read.
