3.0 out of 5 starsSweet romance with a bit of mystery
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 19, 2018
This is my first experience with a book by Ms Klassen. It is sweet, clean, with some interesting moments. The beginning was excellent. The main female character was faced with a very serious and dangerous situation which she met head on. Through her obtaining a position as a maid, the story was gripping.
From then on it bounced along with quite a few very slow spots and a huge cast of characters. The romance was way too delayed and repetitive. The mystery was clever.
This story is entertaining but over 400 pgs is simply too much. A good editor with a red pen could have pulled this together to move the story along and vastly improved it by doing so. In addition, Kindle books in the $10 range need to be very, very good because there are many superior books which cost far less.
For those who wonder why so many strong reviews, I speculate it is due to the Christian content. I like that aspect but feel that the writing quality is what should be reviewed. Christian themes seem to get a pass which causes them to allow weaker calibre books in that genre which is unnecessary and unfortunate.
