The obvious first thing to stand out about the book is the stunning cover. I’m positively in love with it! But what really caught my eye about the story was the unique plot…..a woman plans on marry her best friend’s widow to keep a family for the child…..that’s definitely a different take on romance.
I enjoyed Amelia as a heroine….she was loyal, strong, confident, and tenacious. Though pride was her greatest character flaw, it was annoying or frustrating at all. Sometimes when a lead character is overly prideful, it can put me off a little but Ladd did a marvelous job at making Amelia the perfect mixture of prideful and yet humble.
The romance between Captain Sterling and Amelia was a little wanting for me. While it was tender and sweet, I wanted more tension between the two. I thought the circumstances of the story made it difficult for them to really develop a romance….however I thought in the beginning there could have been a lot more tension between the two.
There were some bits of the novel that I questioned their relevance…..one being Captain Sterling’s injury. I don’t know that it added a lot to the romance or the overall story. Same with his mentor…..I guess they could both show the development of faith in his character but I thought his faith could have been tested in other ways that had more to do with the overall story.
Or maybe introduce those issues early on in the novel instead of toward the end. For me they just didn’t work as well as I would have liked.
All that said I still thought it was a nice, easy read and it filled the need I had to read a historic romance. I was hoping for a little more in the story but overall it wasn’t a bad read. I also have the next book in the series to read (which I plan on) so that tells me that I liked it enough to want to read more books by her!
Our author puts her characters in believable predicaments, they have good and bad quirks of personalities, and sometimes they are just plain mean and get what they deserve. Am I a fan of Miss Ladd? You betcha! along with MC Beaton, Austin, and so many many writers here at Amazon! We all owe Amazon a great big hug for having the biggest library that we can all take part in. My little town doesn't have a library and for an inveterate reader which nearly drove me crazy until Amazon!
