    Thanks for your feedback!

    I am thrilled that this is the first in a series.

    Reviewing books makes one ask, “What makes a book so great you want to read it over and over?” Each reader would have a different answer. I have a few key criteria and Bloodie Bones topped each one. The characters have to be intriguing, lovable, hate-able, beguiling and/or interesting enough to want to know them in real life. Boyce’s Dan Foster is such a character. His rough childhood and rescue give him a depth. What he chooses to do in his profession-and not many options are available to amateur pugilists in 1796 England-adds to his like-ability. His relationships with his harpy wife and her sister add intrigue. I just want to know him more. Another criteria is that the story-line has to grab my focus and attention from the start and then hold it for the entire read. The historical aspect of this novel is not what many would call fascinating, however Boyce skillfully puts the reader into setting with her descriptions, especially about the way of life and the plight of the poor. Boyce doesn’t just describe, she brings to life. The plot has to be entertaining enough to draw my focus from other things and the people become “my people.” I was so involved in this story, that I had to read in order to find out what happens to my people. It wouldn’t seem like a land dispute would engage that kind of focus, but my attention was zeroed in on knowing the outcome. A murder and undercover cop lend the perfect mystery. The plot twists added more fuel to the fire, so much that I had to finish it in one sitting. I love Dan Foster and I am thrilled that this is the first in a series. I will have to read Bloodie Bones over and over while waiting for the next instalment!
