At page 172 or Chapter 10 I realized this book is not for me. The story is not poorly written and there is a plot but it just is not grabbing my interest.
For example everyone thinks themselves so cleaver but really it is a silly goose chase. The brother wants to marry off his sister/half cousin actually I think to this awful reverend, who really wants the dowry. Then you have a guy who is a bastard and hates said brother thus you have this trap of revenge which turns into love...or I guess it will because at chapter 10 they have the warm fuzzies for each other.
Perhaps another time it would have grabbed my interest but not today.
