The Laird

The Laird - Grace Burrowes my second book from Grace Burrowes, and my last. the writing is good, but I don't like the way she tells her story. it's obvious she favors gentle men and a heroin who has suffered some kind of male violence in her stories. I keep asking myself: is this page 20 or 200? she builds no foundation for the characters to know each other well enough to be having the conversations she lets them have in the story. characters are not coming to life. it's not an awful story, and I might even finish this one. (can't finish the last) but I will not.be reading her books again. the narrative style suffocates me.
