Rating: 3.5 – a good read with some good twists, and sappy romance
Opinion: This was a good book. I love Elizabeth Camden’s books for their history, mystery, and sappy romance. It was filled with accurate historical fiction, mystery, and sappy romance. I wasn’t sure how much political stuff there would be, but there wasn’t. Anna and Luke show a realistic past and overcoming past hurts. They are slow to talk of their pasts and to trust each other with their pasts. I enjoyed that character growth. There was also a fair amount of mystery. There seemed to be more plot twists than other Elizabeth Camden books, but that could’ve been me. If you’re looking for a great book about history, mystery, and sappy romance, then read this book.
