The House at Greenacres, Darcie Boleyn
Genre: general fiction (adult), women’s fiction
Once more, women’s fiction. Why, why alienate men? They read books like this too.
Well, I wanted to love this book, it sounded perfect for me but….it wasn’t a bad read, but it wasn’t one that filled me with excitement, one that kept me reading.
Somehow when everything came out I felt sorry for Rich, but I didn’t feel that it was a valid reason for what he did. Likewise I found it hard to believe Holly would leave her loving family, even her grandfather who she adored, simply because he may disapprove.
It all just added up to a tale I found hard to credit, and so I didn’t really get pulled in to the story. That’s me though, as always others will and do feel very different. Reading and enjoyment of stories is very subjective.
Stars: Three, a story that fell a bit short for me but which may be perfect for you.
