The beginning of this book was slooow. I was almost ready to abandon it about a third of the way in, and only kept on because I want to read the rest of the series. But it did pick up a bit eventually, and by the end I was more engaged.

Like the first book, the author seemed to misuse a few words. There were also a few inconsistencies, but not nearly as many as the first book.

The characters seemed to make a number of decisions that didn't make all that much sense. A lot. (Maybe it's just me, and...more

Book 2 in the Triple Countess series is about Orlando, the second brother, and Violetta Palagio, the daughter of London’s most famous courtesan. Violetta has been a part of her mother’s entourage under the name La Perla Perfetta but she never revealed her face and in fact she would prefer to lead a respectable existence. When she hears from her godmother (Orlando’s mother) how his sister Perdita is an invalid she decides to disguise herself and do what she can to help.

I did like Violetta and Orl...more

Oh..the draaaamaaa. An interesting set-up, but with a couple of confused drama queens as the leads, I kept thinking back to Romeo and Juliet (at least they had the excuse of being teenagers). Tons of irrational dialogue and martyrdom. Background story of Violetta's mother's romance was more interesting and heart-breaking.

High point: Orlando pleading Violetta to "Then whore for me!" got me in hysterics.

Low point: Distasteful use of a lesbian character as the villain. Couldn't believe all the smi...more

The beginning of the book was superb! But the storyline got way too convoluted at the end. Looking forward to reading more by this author.

I was born in Leicester, England, and lived in our cobbler’s shop with my parents and sister. It was an old house and most definitely haunted, but I didn’t find out until I left that my great uncle had hung himself in the living room! But I think our ghost might have been older than that. It was built on the site of the old Roman cemetery, and the land had been constantly inhabited, being in the c...more
