I really enjoyed this author's Little Lady series as well as Finishing Touches, so I snapped this book up the moment I learned it was available. I wasn't nearly as enthralled with it as I was with the previous books, however. Evie, though lovable because of her addiction to history and other people's stories, seems just a bit too naive for belief and some of her internal dialogue is almost adolescent, despite the fact that she's in her thirties.
I found myself struggling through the middle of the book especially during the tedious passages on dancing the reel which were too detailed for my taste and nearly gave up, but kept on and was glad that I had at the end.
