did not like it
Recommended to Marie by: Library patron
Read from June 13 to 18, 2010

** spoiler alert ** I gave this book 1 star, only because you cannot give a book no stars. It started it off pretty good; a young lady out to make her own destiny in the "new" colony of Australia. She leaves behind a corrupt uncle, a lousy job, and no friends as she sails from England. Round about Day 2 on board the boat, she sleeps with the first guy. Yes, the first. There are more. I was rooting for the independent young lady... then I realized that she is greedy and amoralistic.

Maggie I completely agree. Did not like this book. There were no likeable characters in the story. It was long and drawn out and the ending was anticlimactio.

Marie Thank goodness! I work in a library and lots of people think I'm odd: I'm a girl and I don't enjoy pure romance books! Would you mind if I started following you? I love seeing what other people are reading, and what rating they give to books.

Maggie Sure. Nice to meet you Marie.
I like romances, and I usually like this author, but this book just missed somehow.
