Flannery Creates a Page Turner for Readers. While the actual mystery is wrapped up fairly quickly and is easily solved--the author does create characters that capture reader interest. The plot isn't complicated; but, readers will find enough twists and subplots to keep reading through to the end.
Would I Recommend Fern by Kat Flannery? I enjoyed Fern's character--and I enjoyed meeting her sisters and learning about their lives within the setting. The author creates a historical romance with a mystery--and tells Fern's story within a short time. Having said that, readers will find all of the pieces of Fern's story resolved as the interest in Poppy and Ivy grows. Fern is a quick easy read that is suitable for teens and adults alike. Everything was wrapped up--and the romance developed quickly--but, not in an entirely unbelievable fashion. Fans of historical romance novels will find a well developed story with strong characters. I look forward to sharing my thoughts on the other two books of the series later this week!
I received complimentary copies of the books of the series for use in a blog review. All opinions are my own.
Fern is only a relatively short book so the mystery of who murdered Fern's friend, Sarah, was wrapped up quite swiftly, albeit still with enough twists and turn to keep my attention. The potential for romance between Fern and the town's new Sheriff, Gabe, is nicely portrayed and feels believable. As this is a clean romance series, there is a good sense of their increasing awareness of each other. I prefer this setup to instantly physical relationship scenarios so was happy although other readers might find it too chaste. I'm not sure as to the plausibility of some of Fern's herbal solutions, but her enthusiasm for her garden and confidence in her knowledge felt authentic and I could easily believe in the male jealousy that her skills engendered. Sexism is a strong theme of this series!
Fern is quick read and an entertaining novella. In fact I enjoyed getting to meet Fern and her sisters in this story so much that I went straight on to read the second book about Poppy!
My first book by Kat Flannery, the story was easy to read and Fern's love for her sisters came leaping off the pages especially when one of them was shot. Fern was etched well, I enjoyed the shades of courage and vulnerability in her. She brought out the protective instincts of Gabe pretty well.
The story had its moments of twists with outlaw and slimy men and gun shots, but the core of Fern came shining through. I am no expert in history, but I could feel the atmosphere of a different era while reading the prose, and I liked that the author made Fern and her sisters independent and mature with a more modern outlook. And boy, did they grate the heckles of the townsmen. The womenfolk liked the sisters just fine.
A historical romance of less than 200 pages took me an hour to read. The story had some insta-love happening, but those were difficult times. The author Kat Flannery has written a full story but packed it with the aroma of herbs and plants that our heroine Fern was an expert in. Overall, a fun read!!
