Catching the Rose
on Nov. 05, 2010
I couldn't stop reading this book once I began, I stayed up till 3 am this morning until I had read the last word.
When I was first introduced to Veronica's character, I thought of her as spoiled, however as I began to become more acquainted with her, I felt a strong need for her to find her beloved Jack. Without Jack, she was destined to live an unhappy life with a man who would isolate her from her friends, and even the intriguing Brad Williams.
This novel is full of suspense, humor, and romance. I recommend this novel to anyone who wants to dive into the life of a young woman on the search for her childhood love.
Haunting Miss Trentwood
on Nov. 25, 2010
Haunting Miss Trentwood is a beautifully written story set in the 1800s about a young woman who's father is haunting her. Miss Trentwood was left her father's estate and her only family is Mrs. Durham, her mother's twin sister. When Mr. Hartwell makes his presence, Mrs. Durham is put on edge while Miss Trentwood is rather intrigued by his ghastly scar on his face. Mr. Hartwell announces to Miss Trentwood that he has come to find the person who is blackmailing his sister and everyone is a suspect. What no one knows however, is that the blackmailer is dangerous and won't think twice about hurting those who get in their way.
I don't know how someone can find humor in a story about your dead father haunting you while a dangerous blackmailer lives under the same roof as you, but Belinda Kroll found a way. If you enjoy Haunting Miss Trentwood, I highly recommend her first novel Catching the Rose. Belinda Kroll is the Queen of Quirky Historical Fiction.
