KilpackEdited to add I ve Goin' To The Zoo/Vamos Al Zoologico read the others now and can confirm that you don t need toead them to understand this one The previous The Vicar s Daughter is the worst of the series and I suggest skipping it even though it introduces LenoraThis is fourth in a series but I haven t The Obituary read the others and didn t feel the lack I mean it was clear that Lenora is suffering fallout from a previous novel but I had all the details I needed including emotional impactI started this bookelatively late thinking I d just start a bit and pick it up again some time tomorrow And then couldn t put it down until waaaay too lateearly the next morning I have no Selbstbewußt auftreten regretsI normally have little patience for withdrawn people who consciously guard their solitude as heroes of books Which is ironic because I m all about that ineal life being an introverted head of a family of introverts The thing is that s often a plot killer because it s hard for authors to dodge the negative motivation sinkhole with such characters I m happy to say that Josi Kilpack showed how to turn it around and make it a strength of the novel with Lenora We see her need and we see her struggle to be strong and her willingness to work around her own limitations And I found it engaging to be with her in both her successes and failuresI ll admit it doesn t hurt that she s working with and sometimes against Aiden He s all kinds of awesome and I love how invested he is with his troublesome niece Catherine and how desperate he is to find a way to help her get what she needsBut what kicked this up a notch "into outstanding territory was how deftly Kilpack works in the importance of family and forgiveness and faith and trust "outstanding territory was how deftly Kilpack works in the importance of family and forgiveness and faith and trust fighting for what you want even as you take the needs of others into account as well The most interesting moral uestions aren t The Poetry Of William VII, Count Of Poitiers, IX Duke Of Aquitaine right vs wrong but when two goodmoral principles stand in opposition and I thoroughly enjoyed being with these very human people trying hard to do their best navigating some tricky watersThe only semi sour note is that I didn t uite buy some of Catherine s actions there were a couple of times where she was a little too good at being bad and her schemes a little to perfect in their success But that s a very small niggle in an otherwise truly outstanding story And given how perfect I found the ending and how Kilpack avoided making victory easy or even complete I think thisemains in solid five star territory Yeah I ll be tired tomorrow but it was so totally worth itOkay two sour notes when I note that Shadow Mountain has the same overpricing strategy that Covenant does for their ebooks I can t say how sorry I am to see worthy books priced out of A History of Early Modern Southeast Asia, 1400-1830 reaching the audience I feel they deserveA note about Chaste This bookeminds me of how natural a chaste story is for this period Lenora and Aiden have a couple of kisses but nothing than that and it felt both natural and expected Negative Motivations I kind of hate that the term negative motivation isn t widespread yet Since it isn t I m going to save off this little jag to append to my eviews that feature the term Jennifer Crusie blogged about it a bit back and it changed how I understand story The problem with the term is that if you ve never heard it that if you ve never heard it you d assume it meant motivations that are harmful or immoral Not so What it efers to is motivations not to do something The thing is that many of us are motivated to not do things for a lot of different perfectly valid and Alcora - O Acordo Secreto do Colonialismo reasonableeasons The problem is that in a story motivations to not do things are a huge drag on the plot particularly considering the fact that most negative motivations are overcome by the character simply deciding they don t care any or ather that they do care and are now motivated to do the thing So not only do you have a counter to action but you also have a situation where to overcome it all a character has to do is change their mind Which means eventually the eader is ooting for the character to get over himh.

Jahrhundert romance aficionados but for those who like painfully slow sweetomances with a moral I noted a few minor painfully slow sweet O Sabor dos Caroços de Maçã romances with a moral I noted a few minor especially in the Bath setting It seems to be as if the author has cursory knowledge of the Regency period and of the history of Bath I ve been to Bath and was hoping for local color but the local color seems modern than the Regency era but at least the author didn teference the canal which
#Hadn T Been Built Yet #t been built yet Only the Hunted Run romantic plot didn teally appeal to me I was a little interested in what would happen with Catherine and think the story would have been entertaining with a gothic plot The music history details were exceptional but I m not musical I have the opposite problem as Catherine I can memorize words easily but I can t understand music Music is a huge part of who Lenora is and it sounded like Asher too felt music was a huge part of his life but that idea got dropped uickly until the last half of the novel when it popped up again I noted a few inconsistencies in the plot as well like the age Catherine comes of age Nothing major but that shouldn t happen with a book that isn t self published The Christian content is minor considering Lenora is a vicar s daughter but she does mention sinning a lot Then there is a heavy moral to the storyWhile I found the story insipid I can Edgar Cayce's Hidden History of Jesus relate to Lenora I am an introvert who sticks her nose in a bookather than socialize I don t have extreme social anxiety disorder the way Lenora does but I can elate to not wanting to be the center of attention or socialize with petty people Her crippling anxiety makes her a uniue heroine and also unable to trust Aiden is a wonderful guardian for Catherine but I feel icky that he has a sugar plantation in Jamaica yet there s not one single mention of the ENSLAVED people who work that plantation and make him wealthy I would expect Lenora as a vicar s daughter to uestion that It would have been nice to have some discussion I like how Aiden isn t willing to give up on Catherine and how devoted he is to getting through to her Yet he spoils her and lets her get away with bad behavior I actually do agree with Lenora about Aiden s behavior towards her He s a human though and he made a mistake She forgives him but I m not sure I d be that generous or trusting I feel sort of bad for Miss Keighly She s awful especially in egards to Catherine but as she points out she had already Hostile and Malignant Prejudice: Psychoanalytic Approaches received congratulations and had the expectation she would be wed Legally she could sue him for breach of promise but he finds a way around that Lenora had listened to Aiden the miscommunication wouldn t have happened Catherine is just awful She has a sadistic side to her like her father Her past is tragic but she sounds a lot older than 12 to have that kind of background knowledge of her family Her mean girl behavior also sounds older than 12 Her previous guardians couldn t get through to her and neither can her teachers I figured out what her problem was but didn t know what they could do about it at that time I doubt anyone would understand the concept of learning disability let alone be willing to work with her to overcome it How important was it for girls to be able toead and write I think they would just dismiss her as lazy Aunt Gwen is a lot of fun She doesn t sound elderly and her gossip has a purpose I like how she directs the action behind the scenes but sometimes her meddling goes too far This book was just not for me and I don t think I ll be The Devil's Playground: A Century of Pleasure and Profit in Times Square reading any Regencyishomances by this author. Share a passionate kiss by the River Avon and Lenora feels it is the beginning of a new forever until she learns that Aiden has withheld an important detail about his life that changes everything Lenora closes her heart to him and Aiden caught between his obligation and his heart must do what he can to make amends And Lenora after years of hiding from everyone and everything faces a decision only she can make .
