it was ok
bookshelves: abandoned, romance

Very disappointing. I often like this author's books, sometimes adore them, and very occassionally, find a dud. I gave this one a long time to get good -- about 2/3 of the book, but ultimately, I was just bored.

I wanted to like it. I kept thinking she was going someplace good with the character development, taking a young girl who was being used by the men around her, who trusted in the wrong places, and who still needed to grow up and, perhaps, providing the catalyst for that change. And probably in the last 1/3 of the book, that would have happened, but I stopped caring. I'm not sure if things were just taking too long, the character was too winy, or events simply weren't exciting enough -- maybe all three. The first part of the book took a while to warm up, but when she was making her escape from her uncle, things were pretty interesting. Then...nothing. I'm not even feeling much chemistry between these characters.
