"Great second book in the series"
Would you try another book from Shelly Thacker and/or Julia Motyka?
Yes, it was a winning combination!! Julia Motyka is a delightful compliment to Ms Thacker's lovely prose. It as a very wise pairing!
Did Julia Motyka do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
She has a wonderful tone and really kept the characters distinct. I loved her pace and energy throughout the read. Her smooth voice worked very well for the leads.
Any additional comments?
Sometimes I am touch and go with these sort of historical reads. I really enjoyed the characters in this book and the supporting cast. It drew you in and managed to keep me engaged in a story that wasn't always dynamic. I am interested in seeing where the third book will take us in this series!
