French & English reviews

Premier livre de cette auteure (que je devrais rencontrer à la RARE si le coronavirus nous laisse en paix) et une très agréable découverte !

Ce que j'ai particulièrement aimé :
- les personnages attachants avec leur humour (Julien et ses fringues colorées xD) mais aussi leur passé douloureux (Mackenna et son passé de femme battue) ...
- du drama avec un méchant psychotique et ses complices (j'avoue j'avais deviné qui était le complice assez tôt ...)

Bon alors oui historiquement c'est plein d'incohérences et y a pas mal de situations irréalistes mais c'est tellement bien écrit ...

Bref, une romance historique légère et amusante et j'ai hâte de lire les autres ><


First book by this author (which I should meet at RARE20 if the coronavirus leaves us in peace) and a very pleasant discovery !

What I particularly liked :
- the endearing characters with their humor (Julien and his colored jackets xD) but also their painful past (Mackenna and her past as a battered woman) ...
- drama with a psychotic villain and his accomplices (I must admit I had guessed who was the accomplice quite early ...)

Okay so historically it's full of inconsistencies and there are a lot of unrealistic situations but it's so well written ...

In short, a light and funny historical romance and I can't wait to read the others ><
