3.0 out of 5 stars Getting back into Chesney's books, 1 Feb 2006
This review is from: Sick of Shadows (Hardcover)
(It's more of a 2.5 star rating)
It has been a long time since I've read a Marion Chesney book and this particular one has given me mixed feelings. The books I read when I was younger were purely romance, maybe there was a bit of mystery, but essentially it was about 2 characters and their paths to love and marriage. Reading this Lady Rose Summer book, I can see she has diversified a lot more. I enjoyed the detecting and the characters. They appeared real to me rather than being just aristocrats and being benevolent just because they can. What has given me the mixed feelings are the historical events she comments on during that era. Having read some of her previous books and other views concerning that era, I know what has happened during that time and I don't need to be told more than once about it. Having the characters comment about their situations were fine but not repeatedly.
Okay, social commentary about the Edwardian era aside, I did enjoy the story itself and I do hope that the characters all find their happy ever after.
