    I liked it

    I haven't read a historical romance in a while and it felt like a breather from all the fantasy and contemporary romances I've been reading as of late. Story wise, I can't say it's any different from some of the books I've read before both historical and contemporary. But being a historical romance that this is, the author definitely succeeded in making it sound and appear like the 1800. I felt like I was transported back in time as I read along. From the dialogue, the setting, the theme, the author did a magnificent job. There's also consistency with the characters. I was waiting for a slip when the characters went through several phase of emotions but that didn't happen. Every one spoke and acted like 1800s people. Of course it wasn't my generation and probably not even yours too, so it was more like the feeling when you get to watch 1800s films. The only difference was that I saw this story in vivid colors instead of black and white. In that aspect, the cover helped a lot in conjuring up the proper image for me. Aside from the romance, it's also a story of family and friendships. And I always loved it when those two are included in a good story. That said, my favorite characters were the brother and the best friend. I loved the brother's character because I didn't expect him to turn out to be the way he did. And the best friend because she proved her worth as a friend. It's my first time to read Mariel Grey and I enjoyed not just the story but also the smooth flow of her writing. If you love historical romances, I recommend this book for you.
