Book Description

Her second day doing doctoral research in the basement archives of Siddley Hall, England's grandest Tudor home, American Antonia Townley stumbles upon the hall's curator with a knife plunged into his chest. Police suspect Antonia of being the killer because of two insignificant—to her—reasons: The first is the pesky matter of her fingerprints on the murder weapon. The second is the unfortunate email she had sent to her sister saying she would kill for the curator's job.

Handsome bachelor Frederick Percy, Lord Rockford of Siddley Hall, learns that the curator was on the trail of the Percy family monstrance, the most valuable monstrance in England before Henry VIII's dissolution. Frederick becomes convinced that the curator's death is tied to the priceless artifact, and he must find it before the killer does to free Antonia from suspicion of murder. More importantly, Frederick vows to protect the beautiful scholar against the menacing forces after her.

But as Frederick and Antonia crisscross England seeking information on the Percy Monstrance, it becomes clear that someone is stalking her every move. Could Frederick, the man Antonia has fallen in love with, be the very person who is out to destroy her?

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly typical of US authors writing about the UK 4 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Considering she lists travelling to England (or does she mean Great Britain) as a love, Ms Bolen is strangely uninformed about the country (although by no means alone amongst her countrymen), so much of this sounds more like a tour guide spouting information about history. There are many errors in facts about every day life and use of language which distracted me from the story; a shame because these mistakes are avoidable, requiring only some careful research and listening to English speech on her visits. I hope English authors writing about the US aren't as slapdash, although with self-publishing one cannot be sure.

Errors aside, it is a pleasant enough tale with plenty of potential which is never achieved. I rarely felt much menace from the villains, nor indeed did the heroine seem overly worried. More menace and tension would have improved things. The dialogue is terribly contrived and (as previously referred to) sounds more like a travelogue at times. There are no real sparks between the hero and heroine so it comes across as two rather dull people who will live happily but boringly ever after.

It gets three stars because I have seen much worse but I am very glad I bought it on special offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the book 14 Feb. 2014
By J May
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and read it in double quick time.
my love of history and stately homes had me enthralled. although I do not personally know of these homes, it was a pleasure to read. the passion showed by the gentry to the academia world of these stately homes was remarkable. it may not be a true representation of homes but it did convey knowledge and charm.
only downside was my guess from near the beginning of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of the plot etc. 10 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot was serious yet there was an air of frivolity about it which made for easy reading. Romance was present in the background but did not smother the rather flimsy plot .However I felt that the characters were at times escapees from a Jeeves and Worcester novel and were barely believable. Overall however I felt it was a piece of easy reading and a welcome change from those heavy Nordic mysteries at present flooding the book market.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing historical romance 12 Jun. 2014
By IzzyB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the beginning to the end it is obvious that this book is written by an American with little understanding of the British aristocracy. Set in the late 20th or early 21st century, it assumes Victorian behaviour and a ridiculous formality of language interspersed with Americanism.
The plot lacks the sophistication of a Mills and Boon romance and is irrefutabley predictable throughout.
A somewhat tedious novel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring 14 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is chick-lit rather than a thriller. The author would be well-adviised in future to remember that in England people are 'burgled' not 'burglarised' and that the title 'Sir' is followed by the man's first name not surname.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story but let down by little UK research. 10 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Story good but no real attempt to research UK language or geography. The M4 is not the London-Oxford Road - it is the M40. English people don't say "mortician" and "burglarise"
