The front cover captured my attention with these words:
A Secret List, A Fugitive Warrior, One Life-Saving Option….
How could anyone resist?
Masquerade Marriage takes place in Scotland in 1796. I’ve read many books in this time period and often find myself yawning by chapter three. Not so with this treasure by Greene.
The characters are fresh, there is a lot of action, danger and I found myself having to read just one more page. Another pleasure in reading this book is learning about Scotland during that time. Greene has presented enough setting details and information about the warring communities in a way that is not lecturing. She has included it as a part of the story and you won’t find yourself skipping over those parts. And if you do run into a word you aren’t familiar with there is a glossary in the front of the book. Give it a quick read through and you’ll have no trouble understanding what the words in the story refer to.
I’d recommend picking this one up. It’s a great book to read on a cold winter day.
Here’s the back cover copy:
