Crappy book. Really crappy book, actually.
I gave this book more than a fair shot, but I found it be a painful read, even at just 104 pages. The writing was very distracting, with the author seemingly to go over board in trying to utilize the correct vernacular of Victorian England. I am not at all adverse to attention to detail, and am by no means a fan of Wallpaper historical romances. However, one extreme is just as bad as another, which was the case with this book. I found the constant expressions and phrasing to be distracting, which made reading this book feel bumpy and, in some cases, confusing.
The characters were painfully one dimensional, probably the result of Benson trying to carry too many characters inside her story. At twelve chapters in, I couldn't find a single scene that didn't feel rushed or choppy. This also made it very difficult to believe the plot. I so wanted to love this book, for it did have a lot of potential, but because of the aforementioned reasons and because the story relied far too heavily on dialogue, I couldn't give a second longer for this book.
In truth, I had planned on finishing it, and merely marking it as a 2, maybe even three star novel. However, such wasn't the case because the reading and story started to feel abrasive and boring which made the plot as a whole feel like it was going no where fast. Definitely a big waste of my time, I'm sad to say.
Note: It's pretty demonstrative of how bad this book is that I have spent just two or more hours reading the story, literally just closed the book and can't even remember the name of either the hero or heroine. My memory is bad, but that's very telling, especially since I can quickly remember that my previous read's characters were Jordan and Emily. Very, very telling indeed!
