bookshelves: frothy-romance

** spoiler alert ** Somehow I hadn't realized when I picked this up that it was by the author of When We Touch. The books are tenuously connected; this volume references the Ripper murders that feature so prominently in When We Touch, and the baby from that book appears here as a young girl. (Which makes me wonder if Drake has plans for her as an adult...)

I liked this novel but I had trouble completely immersing myself in it. I had trouble believing that the British Museum would allow a woman of the period, especially one with Camille's background, to work there in any capacity. I also had trouble buying into her relationship with Brian.

I also think Drake had a few too many secondary characters. The result was that the secondary romance (Tristan and Evelyn) was hard to buy into and I had trouble telling many of the other secondary characters apart. There were just so many that it became hard to keep track.

And, like most of the other commenters, I think the mask was just silly.
