I have really mixed feelings about this book. Parts of it I really, really liked, while others parts I did not care for. The book grabbed me right in the beginning and drew me in, but it soon got too slow for me and felt too drawn out. Then, about halfway through the book, it got very exciting. For a while, I didn't want to put it down, reading until about 1 a.m. Then again, around the 80% mark on my Kindle, it got a little slow again, almost until the end. Now, it's not that I expected (or even wanted) non-stop excitement, but there were just chunks of the book that I thought could have been condensed or re-worked, while there were other parts I thought could have been expanded on.

Something that kept startling me was the way that the author unexpectedly jumped through time. There were times when from one sentence, one section, or one chapter to the next, days, weeks, months or years would pass. And this would oftentimes happen right at an exciting moment. The last thing you expect is to skip ahead days, weeks, months or years right at a crucial moment. The shift in time disoriented me and several times disappointed me, as I wanted more of what had been happening in the characters lives at the time. Case in point is the ending. I was very disappointed in it because it just ended. On one level, everything was wrapped up, but so much was left unsaid on a personal level between Jenny and Eduardo. After having invested so much time and yes, emotion, into their lives, I wanted more details.

The book was well-written, though. I really thought the author brought the locale to life. The mystery elements were intriguing. I'm not sure I'd really call it a "suspense" book because there really wasn't any danger or "bad guy", just really a mystery of the past to be solved.

The main character is Jenny Bucknall, who is recovering from a car crash when she discovers she has inherited half of La Finca Piedra from a Spanish artist, Juan Garcia. The mystery is that she didn't know her benefactor and nobody seems able or willing to help her get to the bottom of it. When she's well enough, she visits the finca and is stunned to find a great deal of the place is familiar, yet she'd never been there... Worse, she finds hanging on the wall a nude portrait of her - executed by the dead Juan.

While there is no great villain of the piece, there is an unpleasant writer of anonymous letters who seems to know more than Jenny about Juan's past and possibly hers too.

The co-owner of the finca is Eduardo, the younger half-brother of Juan. Attractive and used to getting his own way, Eduardo is in politics and doesn't want Jenny there. He's determined to buy her out. She stubbornly refuses, drawn by the mystery of the finca. This stubbornness and independence causes her much grief as, like a moth to the flame, Jenny is drawn to Eduardo...

The blurb suggests that some aspects of the book are racy; in fact, they're erotic, and well done. Indeed, this is an adult bittersweet romance with an intriguing mystery at its core.

Barnett has infused these two main characters with life. Like other accomplished novelists, Barnett has made his characters live with the reader and inhabit your mind during the reading process. His familiarity with Spain and the people is evident and lends authenticity to Jenny's emotional journey of discovery; discovery of self and the long concealed past.

There are no easy answers, it seems; I found this to be a satisfying well-written novel.

An extremely well planned and written novel of intrigue, passion and suspense. Once started- couldn't put it down. Combines all the elements of a good novel with the writers obvious enjoyment of life and the result is well worth reading.

Without Reproach is the story of Jenny and her mysterious inheritance. She goes on a mission to find out why she received the inheritance and who gave it to her. During her journey she encounters Eduardo, a handsome man who is also a mystery. What does he know about her inheritance? Can he be trusted?

Without Reproach is an intriguing story with interesting characters. The scenery is beautiful and makes you want to be there. This is a great read for lovers of mystery and romance. I would love to read a sequel to this book.
