Review on excerpt.

Miss Rampton has a charming style of writing that instantly draws the reader in and takes it captive. I was so glad to have quite a bit of the story to read in this excerpt, but I began to wonder if it was going to go far enough to give everything away and then I wouldn't have much of the actual book to read once I get my hands on it. Not so! This excerpt is just long enough to get all the pieces in place and all the questions raised- and then it stops. Nothing revealed, curiosity piqued, and the characters having thoroughly worked their way into your heart- leaving you wanting more, needing answers, and wondering about so many different aspects of the story.
Georgette Heyer came to mind a few times, when I read snippets reminiscent of her style and wit.
I look forward to reading this novel in it's entirety, and giving it a full review.

Alice Currently Reading- the excerpt. ;) Does that count? Lol :) It's really good so far! Very well written. I know I'm going to be wishing I had the whole thing by time I finish out the preview.
Wish it came in paperback...

Hi Alice. Sorry, have been caught up in Christmas break madness and only just saw your comment. I hope you enjoy the 2nd half as much as you enjoyed the first. Can't wait to hear what you think :)
