The House in Quill Court, Charlotte Betts

The House in Quill Court,  Charlotte Betts

The House in Quill Court by [Betts, Charlotte]

Genre: Romance,

A new-to-me author, but the blurb compares her work to Phillipa Gregory and I’ve loved many of her stories so I wanted to try this.
Sadly its not the same as PG’s novels, not to me anyway. I found this an OK read, and just wasn’t really hooked into the story.

When I read any book I want to be there with the characters, feeling what they do. I need to like them too and to want them to succeed at whatever it is they want. Here I just didn’t feel as if I was back in time, didn’t feel the flavour of the period most of the while.
I liked Venetia, but wasn’t really pulled in by any of the others including Jack, though by the end I thought he was OK.
Its a read that started well for me but sort of went downhill. I’m not really sure why, its got all the potential, history, plots that have romance and danger, and it just sounded so much like a novel I could get lost into – but I didn’t. * sigh* and its frustrating that I can’t really pin down why I didn’t love it.

Stars: Three, just an OK read for me.
