    Not as good as a classic Mary Balogh

    It is interesting to read this early example of Mary Baloghs writing, if only to see how much she has grown and honed her craft skills. This book does not have the same careful characterisation and character development that she so skillfully creates in her more recent books. Some of the plot lines are difficult to believe and the whole thing finishd without the emotional depth that I am used to in a Balogh story. In addition, the hero seems more selfish and shallow than whatever she had intended. Its not that its a terrible book or anything, it is as good as most of her contemporaries. It's just that at the time this was written, she had clearly not reached the deftness and depth of emotion to which we are accustomed to in her work.

    A Masked Deception

    Another enjoyable early Mary Balogh. Unlike many of them it's not obviously based on a cross between two Georgette Heyer novels, although the usual number of stock characters and situations appear. Our heroine is a bit silly sometimes, as frequently happens in Balogh's novels the secondary characters are more rounded and interesting - and likeable! However I don't feel cheated of my money - it's given me several hours of entertainment and I may read it again.
