Slow burner but stick with it!!!

It took me a while to get into the characters set in the past but once I did I loved them!! She's a fantastic story teller I will miss the characters now it's over. Brilliant book can't wait for the next one!!

Disappointing characters

Sadly, I found this story quite unlikable. Normally this author is one of my favourites, however this time I had a hard job listening to the end of the book as none of the characters instilled a desire in me to care about what happened to them. Another reviewer mentioned it as a romantic story, I found it passionless, frustrating and altogether rather boring.
