Boring. I thought I could take a break and start CTM: Farewell to the East End. Farewell sucked me in and the pages flew by; in comparison, the same amount of pages were a struggle to get through. So I am chalking this freebie up as "sampled and not for me."
There was nothing bad about the book (although a bit loose with historical details). It takes place in the western part of England, in a town called Rye - so if you are interested in historical romance not set in London, this may be a potential read.
