    intersting read with mystery

    It is a great plot some good characters a story as old as time Rhy’s wants more money to be able to build up his land, mines and help his people. He does have money but he needs more and it is time for him to marry. Against everyone wishes he decides to get an English bride. He goes to England picks his bride and marries her. His bride has been protect and very innocent and doesn’t want to get married. She is way older than most and her parents put their foot down. She agrees they get married and things go downhill from there. First let me say the story has more filler than I like which at times can make it a long read. Other times it gets exciting with mystery and bickering between the mother in law and Jocelyn. We only see Jocelyn side of things and at times she is childlike. There is no doubt Rhy like most men just want peace and will do almost anything to get it. Mostly he sides with his mother and lets her have the run of things. In Jocelyn defense she is coming to a new way of life finding out the ways of a married couple right before she said her I dos which is very shocking as I am sure it is for most back in those days. His mistress and child living upstairs would shock any new bride one can’t blame her for asking questions and doubting her new marriage. It was the way Rhy acted and the things he said that caused problems. When he told her to grow up after she started asking question I thought was out of line but true to form of most men who don’t want to talk about the issue. I truly think had things not been pushed he would have just went with the flow and not changed a thing. He expects poor Jocelyn to do all the bending. It is hard to like or dislike Rhy he just wants peace, it would be hard for him not to believe his family over his wife on the issues that happened. I thought he handled them the way most of us would have. Jocelyn acts younger than 20 but that is to be expected with her life style. His mother and sister are just mean people who want her gone and do everything they can to see that happens. I found no fault with the characters they act and do normal things to keep things the way they have them. The story is built on the mystery of events with all fingers pointing back at Rhy along with Rhy and Jocelyn starting their new marriage around key people who still want the control. The mystery is great and keeps your attention but still has too much filler taking a long time to get to the point and the effect of it. Misunderstandings, not wanting to talk about things and just trying to keep peace leads to a lot of problems with the fallout leading to major events. It isn’t a book that you could skip a lot because you would miss some key facts but still there is a lot of filler with fewer facts. It was a read that I thought was good but could have been better if made shorter. I did enjoy it and found the control issue interesting along with finding their way and learning that turning your back isn’t always the answer. I rate this as a 3.5 rounding it up to a 4. There were times I did chuckle and times that I felt sorry for one or the other. A clean read that a young teen and mother can read together for some bonding time, the marriage parts are done with class you know they happen and they enjoy it along with how a new bride would feel if those parts to not take place as they should. I enjoyed it and do look forward to reading more of this authors work. It is worth a read to see what you think.
