My favorite parts of the book were of the growing love between Max and Olivia. I wish that the Fenwicke storyline hadn't taken up so much of the book. Everytime he was on the page, I longed to get back to the beautiful proe, the soft, lovely courtship of Olivia & Max.
It's not that the kinappy-suspense wasn't well written and interesting, because it was. It's just that Haymore's talent & voice shines through so beautifully when she's concentrating on the love story.
I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment.
