The Sheikh’s Secret Babies, Lynne Graham

The Sheikh’s Secret Babies, Lynne Graham
Genre: Romance,
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I’ve read some of Lynne’s novels before and enjoyed them. This one though – well, it was well written, but didn’t quite make it for me. I love strong reads, romance with an edge, fantasy and paranormal, stories that grip me, and leave me hanging on every word. Sometimes though I just want a book to relax with, nothing too heavy, something easy to read and that’s when I turn to ones like this. Sadly though it was a little too easy to read, I didn’t really feel the anguish I’d hoped, the regrets and the angst over what both of them saw as the others betrayal. The change around in views came over far too quickly, and they were able to set things aside so easily. I’d hoped for more prolonged bitterness, maybe some jealous would-be Queens, who’d make life difficult for Chrissie; for her to hold out more regrets and anger at how she was treated, but it seemed to get brushed away easily.
I’d have liked to have seen more too of the settings, the palace and the people, though visiting in the “tent” ( true Glamping) was excellent and made that part feel real. When I’m reading a book set in such a distant place and surroundings, so different from what I’m used to I want to read vivid descriptions, so that I can feel I’m there with them. It just didn’t work here. It wasn’t a bad book, was a fun read but sadly a forgettable one, and not one to read over.
Stars: Three, an OK read
