Bought this book on the 11th read it by the 12th - work does get in the way. The writing style is easy & the author has a nice turn of humour. The other reviewers have given a more in depth precis so I won't go into more detail however, I particularly liked the undercurrent of different agendas during afternoon tea. Right I'm off to buy her next book
I liked this book and found the story was well paced. I liked the main characters and hated the people i was meant to so well were they described. The story held just enough intrigue and romance to mean that it wasn't just another book of this genre.
I was very pleasantly surprised with this debut novel. In my opinion it is worth 4 stars. It is an amazing story - well written, a marvellous plot and am looking forward to the next book from Lecia Cornwall.
