Review: Blackmoore: A Proper Romance

Blackmoore: A Proper Romance
Blackmoore: A Proper Romance by Julianne Donaldson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm not sure I really felt anything for this book...

I didn't connect with the main character and quite disliked her for the majority of the book; Kate is quite a silly, selfish little girl. She annoyed me the most in that she was both selfless and selfish all at once. But perhaps it's no wonder she's a brat, having a slaggy and conspiring mother and a slaggy and disgraced sister.

Although that is one of the strengths of this book - it is slowly revealed why Kate is as she is, and she does grow as a character.

The setting made me feel even colder than this awful weather should have, so I supposed the descriptions must have been immersing enough. Only I can't remember any of them.

The end was a little too happily-ever-after for me. I much prefer more uncertain futures for the lives of characters.

Overall this was a moderately pleasant read, fun and romantic.
