Which did you find more appealing, the introduction or the conclusion? I think I like the conclusion more because it was more straightforward than the introduction. It took a few of us at the book club awhile for the book to kick in. There was just so much detail to absorb in the beginning and not all of it was relevant to the story itself.
Why would you recommend or not recommend this book? I think this book will be enjoyed by people who specifically like this genre. Anyone who does not have a preference for historical fiction with some steamy bits, will not like this book.
Did the book description relate to the story? Not really, the book description was confusing and the book itself was far better.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
