Rated 3 out of 5 by from enjoyable Browning has developed a very intriguing storyline with this one. It was a unique story that had me pondering the who’s what throughout. There were a few times when I found myself wondering what was going on, or the relevance of a certain scene, only to have it become apparent a few chapters later. Her descriptions bring this world to life, allowing readers to picture their surroundings. This was a sweet romance that definitely left me giggling at the end. I quite enjoyed getting to know these characters. They were quite different individuals, each adding to the story in a different manner. I liked the Plato quotes and how they add to the persona of the characters who use them. I also had a riot with the Greek mythology. The characters relating themselves to the various gods and goddesses, and then realising what that would mean was priceless. I did find this story to be a bit convoluted in terms of characters at one point. I wanted to draw myself a diagram or flow chart as to who did what. It was as if Browning were attempting an air of mystery around certain character, but it came across as lack of character development at times. Overall, this was a light-hearted, enjoyable novel. I appreciated the story and the characters that we got to know throughout. For me, it was simply missing that little something that engages you completely, making you unable to put the novel down. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
