Did Not Finish . . .

Book Description:

When young widow Lady Lydia Gale helps a French prisoner obtain parole, she never dreamed he would turn up in her parlor. But just as the London Season is getting under way, there he is, along with a few other questionable personages. While she should be focused on helping her headstrong younger sister prepare for her entré into London society, Lady Lydia finds herself preoccupied with the mysterious Frenchman. Is he a spy or a suitor? Can she trust him? Or is she putting her family in danger?

Readers will enjoy being drawn into this world of elegance and intrigue, balls and masquerades. Author Laurie Alice Eakes whisks readers through the drawing rooms of London amid the sound of rustling gowns on this exciting quest to let the past stay in the past and let love guide the future

My Thoughts: I am sad to say that I was sadly disappointed in this book. It started out GREAT!!! My parents have just returned from Europe and talked about all the places they had seen so the places in the book were becoming real. When Ms. Eakes used French words and phrases over and over again I felt like I was in a room with people speaking a foreign language and I was the odd one out. I put the book down and didn't finish it. I love this time period and I was really saddened that I wasn't able to finish it.
