Book Review: Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson

EdenbrookeEdenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


One of the 52 in 52 readers recommended this highly. 

I give it 3 stars.  I liked it OK.  I found the writing a little stilted, particularly in the beginning, but overall readable - I read it in one day. 

I liked the characters, despite their perfections and lack of imperfections.  The influence of Georgette Heyer was very apparent, although at times seemed a bit tacked on.  I never felt completely sold on the Regency era setting of the novel, but it didn't interfere with the story, either. 

The biggest problem I had was the dimwittedness of the two main characters.  They spent all this time together and didn't understand each other? Phooey.  I don't believe it. 

All around, a solid beach read, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find more.
