The plot is not really that interesting but I love books by Eleanora Brownleigh because of all the discriptions of the clothing and the furniture It gets to be a bit hilarious after a while when she starts every situation by discribing the lamps and the rugs and the flower arangements and the perfume and what kind of underwear the people in the room are wearing and the clothing and the jewelry and what kind of tables are around the room and in what kind of fabric the chairs are upholstered, wel The plot is not really that interesting but I love books by Eleanora Brownleigh because of all the discriptions of the clothing and the furniture It gets to be a bit hilarious after a while when she starts every situation by discribing the lamps and the rugs and the flower arangements and the perfume and what kind of underwear the people in the room are wearing and the clothing and the jewelry and what kind of tables are around the room and in what kind of fabric the chairs are upholstered, well, you catch my drift Also there is a lot of name brand droping, It s a bit like American Psycho or Glamourama in that way I did google a lot of the dress designers and the appartment buildings in New York that were mentioned in this book This book is Gilded age designer eyecandy thinly diguised as a romance novel Interior decorator Thea heads to Mexico to spy for President T Roosevelt She can handle herself just fine, but society expects that she ll need a man Will her hero be her sham of a husband A brooding military beau What is she really getting into Writer Brain 1 5 stars So this is what too much exposition does to a story I keep looking for the dialogue, and when I found it I was unimpressed There was no tension beneath the paragraph after paragraph after paragraph of exposition Take away Interior decorator Thea heads to Mexico to spy for President T Roosevelt She can handle herself just fine, but society expects that she ll need a man Will her hero be her sham of a husband A brooding military beau What is she really getting into Writer Brain 1 5 stars So this is what too much exposition does to a story I keep looking for the dialogue, and when I found it I was unimpressed There was no tension beneath the paragraph after paragraph after paragraph of exposition Take away Editor Brain 1 5 stars Oh the back and forth The story is told from two perspectives, which I had no idea to expect until I got to the second one And Thea s story had just started to get interesting Nowadays, I d expect those stories to be woven together chapter by chapter, rather than getting part 1, jumping back five or ten years for part 2, and then coming back to mix the perspectives for the rest of the book It was like starting all over again from the beginning Take away chronology can be the difference between someone continuing to read your book and putting it down because you give them a very convenient out.Reader Brain 2 5 stars I mean I finished it All 687 pages If you like dress porn read lengthy descriptions of fashionable dress or similar effusive detail about high end interior design, then this might be your romance novel But I just wasn t thrilled with the romance itself, and the other two parts of my brain were screaming in pain the whole time, so it was at best a 2 5 Take away my reader brain really might be the sum of my writer brain and my editor brain if you don t give me anything else to enjoy Take away I m just not likely to recommend it to you.Et cetera I found this on Smart Bitches, Trashy Books I m sad that I didn t like it as much as its devoted fans seem to Also, I really love the author s name *E-PUB ⇜ Heirloom ☠ Whether she was sipping tea in a European salon or chatting politely in a Mexican villa, emerald eyed Thea was not only a woman of elegance but also an American spy When the stunning young beauty became the bride of a dashing aristocrat no one guessed the marriage was a sham and that Thea was marrying for love of her country, not for love of her man And as their perilous mission swept them into a whirlwind of excitement and danger, Thea no longer wanted her husband to be merely her partner suddenly she needed him to be much
