  7. For such an accomplished author, this book was awful The plot was thin, predictable and the character development was poor at best Why does the author feel she needs to tell us what the characters think Why not reveal it through better dialogue.Don t waste your money or your time.

  9. My rating 3.5 5 Sigh, it s been a while since I read a Steel It warms my heart, the plot reminds me of Harlot TV series A good read on a cold day with a warm tea, I d say.

  10. Sadly, the story did not live up to expectations The most interesting part of the story was Paris and that just felt rushed and was completely lacking the details and time it deserved By the time she got to New York, I just didn t give af any what happened.
