I became entraced rather quickly - the plot was interesting and though Mercy was a bit more couragous than I could handle at times, I grew to love her. I was actually sorry to see the book end which is something I don't say often. I do think there could have been a bit more information added into the end - some things weren't wrapped up as neatly as they could have been, but I don't feel that ruined the book for me at all or left me crazy with wonder. I just think a little more would have been an enhancement to what is an already great book.
Definitely a book worthy of your time if you like historical mystery and romance.
As with most of the Indie books available there are some typos and grammatical errors but they didn't distract me from the story. I also wish the back story hadn't been italicized. It made it harder to read. I think the location heading was enough of an indication that the story was moving from 1888 to present day. Also, while another, unfavorable, reviewer mentioned holes in the plot, there is a part of me who thinks/hopes there may be more books linking these characters in the future. Possibly?
As I mentioned before I would have loved more of the back story. But, if you read between the lines, the back story is quite brilliant. The genealogist is a distant cousin by marriage of the husband of the woman she was working for who ends up being a direct descendant of Mercy and Trent! Not to mention the hint that the husband and genealogist may potentially end up together in the end . At least, that's what I've decided. I actually went back over the book and just read the back story again. I seriously wish there had been just a few more details. I'm seriously hoping for more...
That being said, I actually finished this book, and a lot of "self-published" books I abandon after about 30%. I understand Ms. Tate has released an edited version since the edition I read; I enjoyed the passion and the spirit of the book, and she really is talented in regard to evoking sensory perception. I hope she can rise above the negative aspects of some of these reviews and keeps writing.
If someone studies English Literature, shouldn't they be more aware of proper context for words? There were so many errors (at unfortunate moments) I was surprised that they were permitted to remain. The acknowledgements state that Wendy Moon was the editor. Shame on you Wendy Moon! I certainly hope you were not paid for your efforts! Any editor should know that people do not "peaked" out the blinds, it was more unfortunate that this was taking place in a brothel. Was this a play on words or just sloppy editing? Regardless, there were so many instances where words were missing letters, or others were added to completely change the meaning of the words and sentence that it was ultimately very distracting.
The pace was irregular and not well done, the loose ends were never tied up, and the H & h were just annoying. I'm sorry I couldn't like this book. I read a LOT of books and this was definitely one I will be deleting and not returning to.
