PROS I liked the characters, but didn't really find out too much about them; they needed a LOT more "fleshing out." The story itself had promise, but we are left to guess the why of so many actions of the characters.
CONS Um, wow, where to begin ... example: they used "mute point" instead of "moot point" (way too many of those types of errors.) Heroine makes a reference to something being in her genetics ... ah, Mendel didn't come up with that theory until 50 years after the action in this story. And then the use of "okay" and other words that were definitely NOT in the English vernacular in 1808.
Fine for a quick read if you're not fussy.
I have read all of Melissa Schroeder's past releases and enjoyed them but with The Accidental Countess she outdoes herself. The emotional connection between Sebastian and Colleen is so richly woven that the reader finds themselves enthralled waiting for them to have the happy ending they so deserve. As I have said in the past, Melissa Schroeder's books have been entertaining reading but if The Accidental Countess is an example of what we can expect in the future then Melissa Schroeder's future looks bright indeed.
