Really disappointed and board
on 4 March 2014
Mmmmm. I'm really confused by this one. This is the second book in the survival club and I had enjoyed the first book 'the proposal' - lady Muir story - so I was looking forward to this one but I was disappointed. The characterisation was very weak, the emotions are flat and there are way to many coincidence in this book.
The book tells the story of Vincent Hunt, Lord Darliegh who happen to be blind and Miss Sophia Fry aka the mouse. Lord Darliegh met Sophia under very unusual circumstances but I nevered felt that she was his true love??? There a lot of dialogues about 'making it work' that it I was not sure if the writer trying to convince us or herself. Additionally I don't care what the hero kept saying but the way they got together was wrong. Did I mention that the hero is only 23 year old????? Very very young. He was described as physically strong but HUD dialogue showed an extermally sensitive boy...which is the correct image. Very confusing. I thought he deserved better story and better heroine
I really struggled to finis it and to be happy for the couple but I was not. I'm huge fan of Mary Balogh's books but this is a major let down. Let's he the next book better and pick up the story line again
