did not like it
bookshelves: unfinished

The prologue was promising, but by chapter three I gave up in disgust. Any author who needs to set their story up by providing THAT many improbable coincidences/romantic fiction stereotypes is Not Very Good at what they do.

***POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW***


Our valiant heroine unfairly schemed against by an Eeville Schoolmistress who takes an Unnatural Dislike to her? Check!
FORCED to share a room with *gasp* Blanche Ingram's BEASTLY daughter?! Check.
Who is a totally unredeemable character? And check.

Mysterious, handsome stranger met whilst the heroine was doing something dashing and brave? Check.
AMAZINGLY connected to her family? OhGodPleaseMakeItStopHowDidThisThingEverMakeItPastBadFanficdom?

Joanna Parungao *laughs* I like this review, i was thinking of buying the book, but then i read what you wrote and changed my mind... thanks for the enlightening review. I can feel "sympathetic disgust" just by reading it.


Aphie Glad I saved someone from throwing their money away!
