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.


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!
