Black Roses by Jane Thynne
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Ms Thynne obviously didn’t want to waste a single bit of research. Not. One. Bit. It weighs the story down -& that is the main reason I’m giving up on this novel. I feel like I have been reading it forever!
I have other peeves.
❁I make no secret of being very shallow – good cover art is very important to me. My edition has dark haired, olive skinned Clara as a blonde with a tanned back.
Jars every time I look at it!
❁ Flat characters
❁ After a good beginning there is a lack of excitement, in what was a very exciting time
I’ve fallen asleep the last two times I’ve tried to read this.
Time to move on.
