First, Michelle Griep is the author. She can be a very versatile voice, writing colonial fiction, cozies, Dickens-type mysteries, or in this case, Regency Romance. Whatever she puts her writing pen to, she's good at producing.
Secondly, this novel has at least one swoon-worthy hero and the accompanying entourage of characters, yet it is a clean, inspirational read. Gamblers, pretty maidens, traveling musicians, high stakes players in a dangerous race to sell or secure a nation's safety: all combine at full throttle back and forth searching for the one ultimate traitor. Meanwhile, the romantic tension between Johanna and Alexander is sweet, taut, and ready to spring like a bungee cord.
Thirdly, one singularly simple but outstanding character is quite notable. I loved the portrayal of Mr. Lucius Nutbrown, a man of slower mental abilities who talks only through his hand puppet.
"Everyone has faith, Miss Coburn. The question is, faith in what?"
Many people today don't get this truth. They claim no faith but have faith in themselves, humankind, science, etc, while refusing faith in God.
While Brentwood, a friend from Brentwood's Ward, is mentioned, the connection is loose. This is easily a standalone novel.
I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. I also purchased my own copy. This book is just that good. All opinions in this review are my own, and no positive review was required.
As a writer, OH MY GOODNESS! I want to write like her. I am literally copying pages of her work and analyzing how she draws readers so completely into her world. I have examined pacing and story structure of other authors but never to the degree I am now. To master deep POV and story world is a goal of mine, and studying Michelle will definitely help me grow closer to that goal.
Favorite Character: Alexander Moore, no contest. I thought Brentwood was swoony, but Brentwood has nothing on Alex. Whew, doggie! *fans self* Strong, smart, compassionate, and yet a man of God. Oh, yes, it is a good thing he is a fictional character because I am already married.
Who would like this: Anyone who loves a good detective story, swoony romance, danger, interesting characters, down-right awful villains, and a strong story that submerses you so deep into its waters, you are in danger of drowning.
Rating and Why: This is another six-star story for me (only the third given in my extensive reading history, too bad Amazon only has a rating of 5). Her mastery of deep POV and story world is a large part of that. Being so completely swept away and surprised at the end is very hard to do and she has done it again. And who wouldn't give Alex a six-star score? *swoon*
Disclaimer: Do not read if you have any hopes of doing anything productive between the first page of the book and the last page of the book. Your children, husband, and pets will all have to fend for themselves. The house will collapse into chaos. Your friends and extended family will report you missing, but you will be so far gone, it won't matter. Don't say I didn't warn you.
