Moonlight Masquerade - A Review
This is the first book I've read by Ruth Axtell, and while it started off terribly slow, it did pick up and I was able to enjoy it. It's set in the years of Napoleon, 1813-1814, which is basically between the French Revolutions. I have to say that I loved the kindness Lady Wexham showed to her servants. She treated them more as equals than master to servant. I also loved how Rees thought he was such a great spy only to have been found out early into his game and did not have his cover blown. Yes the book moved slow. Rather tediously slow in spots. But I found that when I put it down and came back to it several hours (or days) later, I was soon lost in the story's intrigue.
I received this book for free from Revell Books for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of Jane Austen, Downtown Abbey, Julie Klassen, Regency Romance
