Looks like this site won't let me cut and paste in my review, so here it is again. The author does a good job of conveying the time period by drawing in the reader to the mode of travel, dress and the slower pace of everyday life. I especially liked the fact that she handled the accents well by only using a phrase or a word to convey the difference between the British female lead and the American cast of characters. The female lead is developed well in the style of a flower coming to full bloom. The male lead and his broodiness and its reasons unfolded well also. With both characters having an artistic bent works creates a good design for drawing them together. The book is well paced and only falls short somewhat in the final pages. It seems like she was trying to rush it through to the end. Think of yourself leisurely going through a museum and then the staff says "five minutes to closing" and you've only seen three-quarters of the exhibits. That's how the end hit me. But maybe she was only trying to hold back more of who the characters are since this is book one in a new series.
