Received a copy from Reading Alley for an honest review
I enjoyed the book. The characters were well developed and very likable . The chemistry between the lead was strong. It did seemd rushed at the end. The historical aspect was interesting and intriguing. The authors description of people, places, smells, and clothes had you right there in the heart of the story. The author was very descriptive of the older brother's lack of hygiene had me cringing every time I read his name. The subplot of if his older brother was really his brother was interesting and showed why they all treated each other as they did. I would recommend this story and the next.
