it was ok

I read the first three books in this series a while ago, and I remember really enjoying them. This book, not so much. It was overly sentimental, especially since they are on their honeymoon in the book. Too much schmooz and lovin'. The bad guy is made to be too perfect and nice, which automatically cues you into the fact that he is the bad guy. And all the people who you are supposed to think are the bad guy but really aren't have so many bad things happen you know they can't really be the ones causing all the problems. Top this all off with overly detailed descriptions of Ottoman architecture that leaves you with a jumbled mental image of what the author was trying to describe, and I was left just wanting to finish the book so I could move on to something. I was disappointed and hope it was more my mood while reading that made it so bad and not the author's writing since I liked her other ones.
