  • Wonderful read

    This is a well written book that holds your attention from the first page until the last. It's a sweet clean romance with just the right amount of drama to keep you turning the pages. It was a very enjoyable read. Thank you Pelican Book Group via NetGalley for the ARC copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.

  • The Dollmakers Daughter

    The Dollmaker's Daughter by Izzy James Back of the Book: “Forgetful scientist Simon Morgan lost his chance with Amity Archer ten years ago. He knows there is no hope...until a sea captain trades a meal for an ancient stone reputed to have the power to give him his heart's desire. Immediately after pocketing the stone, Simon runs into Amity. Did the ancient artifact cause this chance encounter or was it mere coincidence? Like her favorite travel writer Mrs. Peabody, Amity Archer yearns for adventure, but she's horrified when her father asks Simon Morgan to escort her on her first real adventure. With Amity's Aunt Clementine as a buffer between them, will Simon be able to prove that his love for Amity is real? Can Amity show Simon that her love for him has nothing to do with a so-called magical rock?” Impressions: This is a new author for me. This book is the second in a series however I was unaware that there was a previous book and read it as a stand-alone novel. I would recommend reading this as it was challenging to get into this story as a stand-alone novel. Rated: Slavery, racial abuse, kisses Liked: The topic of this book was unique to me however it was also a bit strange how the drama unfolded. Disliked: I did not care for this book. It took me a good bit to figure out the characters' roles and plot but it was not smooth reading even once things started to piece together. I wasn’t aware when picking this book that it was the second in a series so perhaps reading the first book would have made this one more enjoyable for me. Quotes: “Happiness does not come from outside yourself. It comes from inside as you learn to be thankful for what you have.” “Like it or not, women are not the same as men. We are different. Not less.” I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review shared here.

  • Nice Read

    “The Dollmaker’s Daughter” is a first time read by Izzy James, new author to this reader. This was a no hands down quick read for me and somewhat the typical contemporary romance. This is a story of a magical stone that is held by Simon Morgan. The stone creates a lot of intrigue that kept me interested because it is believed that the inscription on the stone is the Name of God. Then there is Amity Archer whose dull life leads her to wanting adventure and wants to capture this adventure in writing. When she happens upon a war widow, she wants to write her story as well. When Simon is asked by her father to accompany her and her aunt on a trip, thus starts the beginning of their relationship. There were parts of this story that had some ambiguity for me…for one that the father somewhat knew that Simon would compromise his daughter. This was a bit confusing as I would not know of any father asking any man not to do that. The other was me trying to figure out who was the dollmaker and what did that have to do with the story. A bit puzzling. This story as I mentioned above was a typical romance story where a man meets a woman and fall in love…things happen, they break up and meet again. Overall, I think the story was a bit underdeveloped in plot and characters. The love story was sweet and clean, but too short.

    Thanks for your feedback!
