There is a good mystery within the somewhat rambling story. Lots of secondary characters, tertiary characters ~ the book is loaded with them. There's a French balloonist who crash lands on the property, breaking his leg, so he's part of the crowd. We have a measles outbreak that incapacitates one of the nieces, several servants as well as Sabrina, a narcissistic witch who lives down the road and is married to a kind older gentleman. Oh, Colonel Willingham drops by too. He was Eve's late husband's (that's Bruce...he's also part of the story) commanding officer. Lotsa people.
Amid all these doings Eve begins receiving increasingly threatening letters, the house is broken into, Neville is charming Lily, and a romance develops between Eve and Fitz. Here's where I wound up with major squawks:
1) "Reputation is Everything Eve" is so charmed by that rascal, Fitz, she decides to heck with it...she wants one glorious experience to take with her into old age, so they have at it. And there isn't just one "glorious experience," they go at it like rabbits. If she isn't preggy by now, I'll eat my hat.
Anddd, she knows from day one that Fitz has *zero* plans to marry her, he just wants an affair. What's an illegitimate kid going to do for the "reputation" she supposedly values? Not to mention future employment?
Why do authors write such dumb-as-dirt heroines? I'm tired of them.
2) Meanwhile, Neville, who has had an understanding with Priscilla (yet another character) for years is about to bail on her and take off for Gretna Green with Lily, thereby wrecking the reputations of both girls. A real upstanding kinda guy, isn't he? Why did the author make Neville such a sleazebag?
The author did some acrobatics and all's well that ends well.
I put this book aside a number of times before finally finishing it. Even aside from my issues with it, I was just never really engaged by it. The mystery was interesting but the story moseyed and wandered too much. Too bad, I really wanted to like this.
Some of the sex was good, but no out of this world passion.
Just lots of activity involving everyone in the house.
Again, I just wanted much more on Oliver & Vivian- the expectations are HUGE for these two. I can't wait to read their story.
This is an OK read.
