48-HBC Book 6: Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl

Time: 1:29:58
Source: Local Library

My first full book of the day! I've been looking forward to this one. Kindl is one of those authors who simply doesn't write fast enough.

Capsule review: "My only quibble with this book is precisely who the audience is. Though content-wise, I wouldn't mind giving it to a middle-grade reader, I wonder how interested they're going to be in the marriage machinations of a time long ago. The best audience, I'm guessing, will be those kids who already enjoy a light romance.

But for this reader? Touches of Cinderella, Jane Austen, and Georgette Heyer made this book all I hoped it would be."

Some lunch and then back to the TBR shelf!

I was thinking the same thing this weekend. I have to wonder about some of the "desired" audiences of the books that I read.

I haven't read anything by Kindl. I'll add it to my TBR list.
